A sleep-deprived new mother approaching her fortieth birthday, the very last thing Louisa wants to do is celebrate. But when her friend Tiff organises a surprise party, inviting the entire list of Louisa’s Facebook friends, Louisa is faced with a room full of people she hasn’t spoken to in years – including someone she never expected to see again: her ex-boyfriend, Oliver Dunmore. When Oliver’s wife Melissa goes missing after the party, everyone remembers the night differently. Someone knows what happened to Melissa, and Louisa is determined to find them. But the truth could be closer, and the deception more devastating, than she’d ever imagined…
I have been looking forward to reading this book for ages. I finally got a copy from the library recently. I wasn’t let down. The story was so exciting. I was into it from the beginning. I was trying to figure out connections in my head and they honestly surprised me when they were revealed. From beginning to end I found the whole book so easy to read and the story never lagged. I would have given it five stars but I thought the ending was a bit rushed. Some elements of the story were brushed over and not explained completely, I felt. A lot of stuff was left to assumption, like I had to assume the explanations. I still really enjoyed the story of the book and I would definitely recommend it.
