Kate Sullivan has a beautiful home, a job she loves and a handsome fiancé: all she’d ever dreamed of since getting sober and painstakingly piecing her life back together.
But a chance encounter with her old best friend Becky threatens Kate’s newfound and fragile happiness. Kate remembers nothing of their last drunken night out, the night Becky broke off their friendship without warning or explanation.
With Becky back in her life, Kate is desperate to make amends for the past. For the closure she craves, Kate needs to know what she did that ruined everything. But what if the truth is worse than Kate could have imagined?
This has been on my agenda for a while and that was before I had even read the blurb.
I read this in one go … its that good!
Unputdownable! Addictiveand unpredictable.
This is a fantastic read that had me hooked straight away. It’s an excellent debut and I can’t wait to see what she writes next..
Emily captures addiction perfectly and the thoughts and feelings behind it. I’m just under a year sober so this added to the enjoyment.
Jealously, childhood, love,loss,friendships and secrets are the themes explored and how they each impact someone and those around them.
I highly recommend this psychological thriller and its definitely one of my top 2021 reads.

Now Megan and Jess are at the centre of a murder investigation. But what secrets are they hiding? Can they trust one another? And who really is the victim?
