The best of friends keep the deadliest secrets…

Jo is my best friend. From high school to adulthood, we’ve gone through everything together. Even when I made a foolish mistake and betrayed her in the worst way, she forgave me. She’s godmother to my son and our lives are intertwined. We want the best for each other, always.

I hope she approves of my new boyfriend Noah. How could she not? Noah is kind, attentive and loves me for who I am. But when I introduce them over dinner one evening, Jo doesn’t look happy. She’s always been protective of me and as Noah clutches my hand, I force her reaction to the back of my mind.

But later Jo tells me that someone is threatening her and she fears for her life. And all too soon, the threats land at my door too. At first it’s small things: my precious roses destroyed, my mail sabotaged. But when I receive a note saying, “I want your life,” I’m terrified.

Someone wants to cause me harm. They’re prepared to take everything I love. But are they closer to me than I could have ever imagined?

This is such a gripping psychological thriller that will keep you awake and keep you at the edge of the seat!

Jo and Abi are best friends and despite the fact that Abi had once betrayed her, the two remained firm friends. However, as Abi is building a perfect life with Noah and is seeing her son going off to college. However, recently, Abi has been getting threats and someone has been sabotaging her at work. And it all related to a guy that Jo and Abi used to date back when they were in high school–Cal.

The story is told from Jo’s and Abi’s points of view so it was itneresting to read what they are really thinking about each other. You could see that clearly, the two girls used to be closest friends but eventually they seemed to be drifting apartment, thanks to an incident that got Abi pregnant. There were some twists and turns in the story and the author has managed to grab the reader into the story, making the reader feel like they are also a part of the story as well. The twisted end was completely unexpected and it actually made my day! Overall, I actually enjoyed reading this book–it felt like a love traingle and a person who is obsessed with what she wants!

If you are looking for a thriller that will keep you on the edge, then this book is one for you–worth five stars!
