Seven days. Three families. One killer.
It was supposed to be the perfect holiday – a group of families enjoying a week together in the sun. Four women who have been best friends for as long as they can remember making the most of a luxurious villa in the south of France.
But Kate has a secret: her husband is having an affair. And a week away might just be the perfect opportunity to get the proof she needs – to catch him in the act once and for all. Because she suspects the other woman is one of her two best friends.
One of them is working against her, willing to sacrifice years of friendship to destroy her family. But which one? As Kate closes in on the truth in the stifling Mediterranean heat, she realises too late that the stakes are far higher than she ever imagined . . .
Because someone in the villa may be prepared to kill to keep their secret hidden.
Stifling heat, three families, plenty of secrets and one holiday. What could possibly go wrong?
It seems that nearly everyone involved has something to hide, even though the women are all best friends there are still some things that you can’t be shared, not even with them. Especially when that secret is that you are having an affair with your best friends husband!
This is a very character driven novel that is a bit of a slow burner as it follows the three women and their families on what should have been a much-needed, unforgettable holiday, and that is exactly what they got. A holiday no-one will ever be able to forget.
Dysfunctional families, cheating husbands, troubled teenagers all together under the roof of one luxurious French villa where the only thing that is right is the villa it’s self, everything else is most certainly not alright.
As the heat rises and the plot thickens each secret is brought to the surface and when you are all living under one roof there is no way of hiding from them, and as much as no one wants to air their dirty laundry in public that is exactly what happens, only for one of the group their secret ends up in murder.
Full of escalating suspense this is a clever page turner of a book that withholds its final secret right up until its conclusion.
The perfect summer read for fans of authors such as B A Paris and Clare Mackintosh, this will be a book you won’t want to miss.
