Nora is surprised to be invited to Clare's hen weekend but agrees with
her friend Nina that they'll go. Nora walked out of school and away from
her boyfriend James ten years ago, that was also the last time she saw
Clare. They had been best friends throughout their school years so what
happened? As the story progresses in the isolated house in the woods we
find out why.
Other characters attending the weekend away are Tom who
works in the theatre, Melanie who is away from her baby for the first
time and Clare's obsessive best friend Flo.
I thought this was a
good, fast paced psychological thriller and for most of it I wasn't
sure what was going to happen next. I found the ending was predictable
though, I'd worked it out earlier and it wasn't the big shock I'd been
hoping for. Worth a read if you like psychological thrillers and I'll
look out for future novels by this author.
