Publisher's Summary

Natty and Sean Wainwright are happily married. Rock solid in fact. So when Natty's oldest friend, Eve Dalladay, appears - just as their daughter collapses on a school trip in France - Natty has no qualms about leaving Eve with Sean to help out at home.
Two weeks later and Natty finds Eve has slotted into family life too well - her husband has fallen in love with Eve. He's sorry, he tells her, but their marriage is over. With no option but to put a brave face on things for the sake of the children, Natty embarks on building a new life for herself. And then she receives the note. Eve has done this before, more than once, and with fatal consequences...

Collapse of a family

Any additional comments?

The Wainwrights, on the surface, are an ideal family. Sean and Natty have been together since they were teenagers and after nearly 20 years have a successful business and two delightful daughters so what could go wrong? The answer is the arrival of Natty's old friend, Eve, I experienced rage on Natty's behalf, anger at her sometime stupid behaviour and disgust at the way that Sean handled the problems. Listening to this book was an emotional roller-coaster, right up to the final twist. Janine Birkett was an ideal narrator.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I think so. It's a good combination of analysing relationships, marriage and family combined with a psychological thriller set against an everyday family background . A very enjoyable read

The portrayal of the 'friend' and how her manipulative nature and past background unfolded.

The ending - but I wouldn't reveal this so as not to spoil for others
