ABOUT THE BOOK
Two best friends.
One missed chance.
And a night that changes everything.
Eve, Justin, Susie and Ed have been friends since they were eighteen. Now in their 30s, the four are still as close as ever, Thursday pub quiz night is still sacred, and Eve is still secretly in love with Ed.
Maybe Eve should have moved on by now, but she can’t stop thinking about what could have been. And she knows Ed sometimes thinks about it too.
Then one night, in an instant, all their lives change forever. And, as Eve learns she didn’t know her friends as well as she thought, she also discovers she isn’t the only person keeping secrets…
I have always envied that bond of small nitches of people that met at school and are still friends years later. (my sister-in-law has the same friendship with people we both went to school, even now in our sixties). Eve, Susie. Justin and Ed were such a group. Eve at 34 is still single, gothic and plays centre stage in this story. They had all been close. She had always had a crush on Ed, which had grown to love, while Susie was her rock until after a night out together, a terrible accident ends Susie’s life and changes Eve forever.
Oh my, this isn’t just a story about picking the pieces up and getting on with life. It is discovering another person behind the one that she thought she had known everything about. It is bubbling frustration that festers because there is no-one to shout at or say to them ‘what about me’?!! Eve thought she had known Susie to the core, but she hadn’t even scratched the surface.
I had fallen deep into the pages of this story and time just disappeared because as a reader, you soon feel a connection to Eve. The second half of the book was just what I needed. I loved how the story took a turn to not just find out about the Susie that she didn’t know about but of herself too. This is a warm and good feel story of finding ways to forgive and move forward.
A gem of a read. Loved it!
I wish to thank Net Galley and the publisher for an e-copy of this book which I have reviewed honestly.
