The story opens with the police knocking on Todd and Alice Campbell's door to ask Alice for some background information regarding the death of Howard Grant, her best friend Kat's husband. Howard had been found on the deck of his pool where he had apparently fallen to his death from a second storey balcony. Police were trying to determine whether the fall had been accidental or if foul play was involved.
As the investigation progresses, police begin to question Alice quite aggressively, trying to decide if she knows anything that could help with the case. Was the fall an accident? Suicide? Murder? Was Kat involved? What does Alice know about it? Does she even really know Kat?
The book flips back and forth between the present tense murder investigation and the history of Alice and Kat's friendship, starting from three years ago when they met at the airport and struck up this unlikely friendship.
WHAT I LOVED
This book checks a lot of my "what I love in a thriller boxes;"
Kept me guessing
Things that are not as they seem
Characters who are hard to label and continue to surprise me
Twists and turns
A jaw dropping ending
I have been waiting very impatiently for this book to be available, I pre ordered it and was so excited to read it, hoping it would live up to the hype and it DID!!!!
It was so darn hard to put down! I had to download the audio book so I could listen to it in my car as I ran my errands and shuffled my kids around.
The ending blew my mind!!!!! Wow!
WHAT I DIDN'T LOVE
Some of the descriptions went on too long and some of the side stories were unnecessary to the main plot. That was really about it. Everything else was very very good.
So worth the wait. I highly recommend for anyone who likes domestic thrillers which are plot driven and move quickly.
Kat wasn’t just wealthy. She came from capital-M Money.
She never eats. She lives on a diet of wine and bitterness…
No one liked Howard… Not to speak ill of the dead, but he was an @hole. If everyone who thought he was an @hole was a suspect, they’d have an overly large number of people to consider.
If insanity was a side effect of Botox, every Floridian over the age of forty would be nuts.
I was captivated by this gripping story and was totally unprepared for the chilling and gasp-worthy ending. The writing was superb and cunningly clever - quickly setting an intense and thrumming sense of intrigue while constantly pricking at my curiosity and luring me in with enticing characters, expert storytelling, and a perplexing mystery. I was beguiled yet not fully trusting of the lovely and vivacious Kat. The storyline was brilliantly crafted and sharply honed and kept me riveted to my Kindle through all the twists and turns. I had speculated and cast out various theories but would never have anticipated or come close to Ms. Hunt’s ingenious plotting. She has mad skills and my utmost respect, although she also scares me a little…
This is a page-turning suspense novel about the deep relationships women can form.
Kat and Alice are recent friends. They've only known each other for 3 years, yet they are closer than any sistesr could be. They say opposites attract and that is very true in this case. Kat is wealthy, very wealthy. She has one daughter in college and she's married to a man she doesn't love. Alice is not rich .. actually she and her husband are having financial difficulties which is putting a heavy strain on their marriage. They have 2 kids in private school.
The fun times that the women have enjoyed come to an end when Kat's husband is found dead. Since he had been drinking heavily before falling off the balcony, it is assumed to be an accident. But then the police come knocking on Alice's door.
The story is told by Alice and as her friendship begins with Kat, she has questions, and sometimes Kat makes her feel a little uncomfortable .. but usually a bottle or two of wine shared make those feelings go away. They share their stories ... but one of them is a master manipulator, and most likely a sociopath.
This well-written psychological thriller kept me enthralled through the entire book. Can you spot a manipulator? Is there more to the story than is being told? There are some surprising twists and an ending that left me totally shocked.
