My thoughts:
Omg what a read!. I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.
This was was a superb read. You are kept guessing and when you think you have it sussed the proverbial curve ball is thrown.
Four friends Yvonne, Maxie, Anaya and Hazel discover that their friendship is less than perfect when Yvonne is badly beaten and left for dead in the school playground.
Into this situation comes Cece, who after her husband’s promotion and keen to make friends meets Maxie, Anaya and Hazel at the school their children attend. She is made welcome by these three very different women.
Cece later finds that the police believe that her new friends may have had something to do with her attack and becomes a reluctant spy.
In trying to uncover the potential murderer we find that all the main characters have skeletons in their cupboards.
The writing is of a superb quality and all characters are well rounded. A plot driven book that will keep the reader turning the pages furiously and racing to a satisfying conclusion.
If you decide to pick up this book you will not be disappointed. Read it! Thanks to lovereading for the ARC.

Hello, my name’s Dorothy Koomson and I’ll try to make this bit that’s all about me as interesting as possible.
I wrote my first novel called There’s A Thin Line Between Love And Hate when I was 13. I used to write a chapter every night then pass it around to my fellow convent school pupils every morning, and they seemed to love it.I grew up in London and then grew up again in Leeds when I went to university. I eventually returned to London to study for my masters degree and stayed put for the following years. I took up various temping jobs and eventually got my big break writing, editing and subbing for various women’s magazines and national papers.

Fiction and storytelling were still a HUGE passion of mine and I continued to write short stories and novels every spare moment that I got. In 2001 I had the idea for The Cupid Effect and my career as a published novelist began. And it’s been fantastic. In 2006, third novel, My Best Friend’s Girl was published. It was incredibly successful – selling nearly 90,000 copies within its first few weeks on sale. Six weeks later, it was selected for the Richard & Judy Summer Reads Book Club and the book went on to sell over 500,000 copies. Oh, there I go again, this is meant to be about me, not my novels.

Okay, back to me. I recently spent two years living in Sydney Australia, and now I’m back in England. But I can’t say for how long I’ll be in the UK for because I’ve been well and truly bitten by the travel bug
