Thank You Netgalley and the publisher for providing me a copy of this book! This book is based on my complete honest opinion.
Scarlett’s life seems to be perfect in every way with a one year old daughter Poppy. But when she returns back to work, after the maternal leave, a video of hers was leaked out and was emailed to nearly all of her colleagues and nearly every one of her family members. But the three women, who are in Scarlett’s baby group, Emma, Cora and Asha had not received the video. Who had sent the video and who do you actually trust?
The plot line to me sounds so intriguing to me–Scarlett is living a good life but a video of her past threatens to destroy her new life. Indirectly, we know that one of the mothers is involved in this incident, nearly out to destroy the life of Scarlett. The book is realistic in some ways as sometimes, friends can end up being the enemies and truth to be told, there is no one in the world that you can actually trust. That is what Scarlett’s life was like–she considered the three mothers, Emma and Cora and Asha as her friends but one of them betrayed her. Scarlett’s own married life seems to be in tatters as her husband, Ed seems to have become distant from her. The writing was good and it actually draws the reader into the story. The ending was a bit unexpected and I like some of the twists and turns that are found later in the book.
Overall, this book talks about betrayal in friendship and marriage–a good thriller and also a bit emotional. Worth three stars!
