Synopsis from Goodreads: I’m Lucy, and I have a secret. I have a beautiful home, that I’m desperate to escape. But that’s not my secret. I tell my friends I’ve never wanted children, when I always have. But that’s not my secret. My husband is a celebrated surgeon, who tries to control me. But that’s not my secret. Adele knows. Once upon a time, I knew everything about her and she knew everything about me. Best friends forever. But now our secret is beginning to surface. I can trust her more than anyone. We made a pact. And she’s never do anything to hurt me. Would she? This absolutely gripping psychological thriller will have you forgetting everything until the last shocking twist. Fans of Behind Closed Doors, Friend Request, and The Girl on the Trainwill be hooked.
My Review: While there are a ton of people that really liked this book, it just wasn’t for me. The problem for me was the characters. I didn’t connect to any of them and found Lucy to be weak and unlikeable. That being said, it was well written and had an interesting plot. I think there are a lot of people that will really enjoy it.
