Alex and Carrie meet at a support group and they help each other by responding to what they each want in life – Alex wants a child to love and Carrie wants someone by her side whilst she is dying.
But what do they really want from each other? That question forms the basis of the plot.
There are plenty of lies in this story. There are also difficult issues of terminal cancer, eating disorders and domestic violence. Both of the women have a murky past they want to keep hidden. But what exactly are they lying to each other about, and why?
The extent of the lies made both women a tad unlikeable. Our heart strings are pulled at the end for both of them but it didn’t do much to dilute my dislike, in particular of Alex.
There are plenty of twists in this story and plenty of menace too. A solid psychological thriller that will keep you guessing until the end.
I’ve wanted to read a book by this author for a while, so when the opportunity came up on NetGalley, I took the chance.
Thank you to the author, NetGalley and the publisher for a copy of this book. This is my honest review.
