She’s your oldest friend and you tell each other everything. So you’d know if she’d done something terrible, wouldn’t you?

Maddie and Kiara have been best friends since they met on their first day at university. They have always shared everything with each other, everything except one big secret, which Kiara knows would tear them apart…

When the police knock on Maddie’s front door as she and husband Nick are getting ready for the morning school run, she’s not expecting to hear what they have to tell her.

Kiara is dead.

And when Kiara’s death is ruled as suicide, Maddie can’t believe it. She knew everything about her best friend, didn’t she?

Walking into the plush apartment Kiara only recently moved into, Maddie soon discovers that her best friend’s life wasn’t as happy as she thought. Is that blood on the kitchen floor? And why didn’t Kiara tell her about secret meetings with a man Maddie knows well?

What Maddie learns next has her questioning who her best friend really was. And now she’s discovered Kiara’s web of lies, could her own life be in danger?

This was really an intense psychological thriller that will actually keep you up all night!

Maddie and Kiara had been best friends since the first day they met at the university and have always shared secrets with each other. But one day, while Maddie and her husband Nathan were getting ready, the police knock on the door to inform that Kiara had committed suicide. Maddie couldnt believe that Kiara would commit suicide and realize that Kiara may have been hiding something that Maddie was unaware of.

I actually enjoyed reading this book. I felt many of the characters, even Maddie was unreliable and that I liked how the author made Kiara’s sudden death a mystery. The story was fast paced and there were some twists and turns as well and I kind of expected that the ending will be but this did not ruin the rating I had in this book. This book also talks about the importance of friendships and relationships between your spouses and of course the trust issues that many couples have between each other. This is the fourth book I have read of Sheryl Browne and I am always looking forward to read more books from her.

If you are looking for a fast paced thriller and an unputdownable thriller, then this book will be the one for you. Worth 4.5 stars.

Many thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture for the ARC. The review is based on my honest opinion only..
