Sadie Roper's life is not going the way she expected. Her husband has left her and her nasty mother has died, but not before putting a caveat in her will. Sadie's daughter, Robin, will inherit the house in London, but only if she attends Ashams, an all-girls private school where Sadie attended (yet hated). Sadie needs a job, but had left her job as a solicitor when she married Andrew Spence and moved to the US. Now that she is back in London, Sadie's friend, Zora, helps her get a job defending a young man accused of improper relations with an underage girl. The team is convinced she is a liar. Additionally, Sadie is considered an outcast and an interloper at the school because her daughter was admitted mid-term, and Sadie doesn't join in the activities of the moms. There is something sinister going on since acceptance into the upper level is very competitive. When Robin's grades outshine the others, Robin is put in danger.
The end is chilling.

There are many elements in this book that I enjoy in my thrillers…unreliable narrator, past flashbacks, multi timelines, a female MC that is ruling in a man’s career, frayed friendships and a shaky relationship.

Given all those things, I wanted to love this book so much and I read it to the very end hoping that it would be an exciting. However, the story was boring and very predictable.
Plus it didn’t keep my attention as it took me longer than normal to read this type of book.

If you are newer to the genre and enjoy the above elements in a story, give this one a go. For me though, it was a miss. 2.5 stars

Many thanks for my arc for my honest opinion.

This really was a good, twisty thriller. You didn't know who to trust, whose story to believe and who would become the victims in the end. The opening scene leaves you hanging through the entire novel while getting pieces of clues and glimpses of the past that brought everyone to this moment in time. Tessa and Sylvia have been friends for a long time, and through a lot but when Tessa continues to bring up the past and starts to act a little bizarre in her requests, Sylvie starts to wonder what her motive is and if she really knew her friend at all. Time is of the essence, but dredging up the past cannot fix what happened and will it change the perception of what really happened that night? Thank you to Source Books for the free novel.… (mais)

I just finished another book with this exact same twist, so as I was reading it, this twist was always in the back of my mind. Sylvie is a barrister in London and up for a position in the Court. Her boyfriend, Gareth, a caterer, lives in Scotland, where Sylvie and her friend, Tess, were raised.
Tess is diagnosed with a fatal disease and asks Sylvie to tell Tess's estranged husband, Marcus. She also wants Sylvie to participate in a renewal of vows ceremony, and also to find a woman that Tess feels they wronged. Sylvie is apprehensive about this.
Meanwhile there is a story of 2 bodies found impaled on a railing after a NYE party. These are parallel stories.
