With thanks to @_DanielleLouis_, @AAChaudhuri, and @Herabooks for a place on the tour and the opportunity to read and review this book


She has your back.

And may stab you in it.

Wealthy, pampered Susan is living the perfect life in leafy Kingston. She’ll never let anyone see the darkness she’s concealing behind the diamonds and rosé.

Grace is new to the group, seemingly the perfect wife and mum. Yet no one knows the truth of what’s happening behind closed doors.

Loner Natalie hides the pain of her childhood behind a carefully ordered life. But how long can the past stay hidden?

Three unlikely friends, brought together for a weekly class run by beautiful, friendly, instructor, Jade.

But when Jade goes missing in mysterious circumstances, the group starts to unravel. And as their darkest secrets come to light, it seems that no one can be trusted. Even their closest friends…

A heart-in-your-mouth thriller that builds twist after twist, culminating in an unforgettable ending. This shocking, tense and gripping read will delight fans of T.M. Logan, B.A. Paris and Big Little Lies.


Wow, what a story! It’s utterly compelling, I was hooked from the prologue and finished it in a day! The superb writing creates an inner chill of what’s lurking around the next corner, as a palpable tension permeates the pages. Breadcrumbs are skilfully scattered to follow to try to put the pieces together in this unpredictable tale filled with heartbreaking and surprising revelations.

The split perspectives were seamlessly woven together and created a pacey momentum driving the narrative. We glimpse the real characters behind the outward facades constructed enabling us to become invested in each character. Chaudhuri creates such unique characters bringing their own special flair to the story, and fleshes them out flaws and all to bring them spectacularly to life. As the complex, multi-layered plot unravels we see past traumas clawing into the present, fractured relations, toxic dynamics, and distrust infiltrating their group.

When Jade goes missing in mysterious circumstances no one knows what’s happened. As the police get involved and the friendships are put under the microscope, it seems everyone’s hiding something. With secrets simmering beneath the surface, revenge lurking in the shadows, and sinister motives being uncovered, nothing and no one is as they seem.

It perfectly encapsulates the twisty path of friendship when we dig beneath the pretence to reveal the lies, betrayal, and mind games in play. The effect of mental health is explored on everyday life and the struggles faced as a result. Things are set in motion causing unfathomable repercussions; I was in suspense until the very last page! Chaudhuri expertly delivers shocking twists with jaw-dropping impact. It’s a thrilling read that you won’t regret picking up!
