A hen party gone wrong so many ways. Secrets and lies that go back decades will be exposed, creating hurt feelings, pain and so much more. When Holly gets together with several of her closest friends, someone does not make it past the house party. The destination is remote and the tensions between the women rises as each moment passes.
The points of view in this captivating story are all strikingly different - Holly, Suzanne and Claire most notably reveal so much about things that were kept hidden for quite a long time. The past is relevant when it comes to exposing the issues that slowly come to light.
With twist after twist it becomes more than clear that at least one of the women has something to hide. The veracity of the friendship of the women was truly tested in this engaging read by Victoria Jenkins. The drama was never ending and continued to escalate as her latest book came to a shocking ending.
The way this book was written is truly designed to pique one’s attention as the beginning already tells the reader that there will be a body. So it becomes an enjoyable ride as clues as to the killer’s identity start to come together. Like pieces of a puzzle, one by one, each scenario make things clearer and clearer. Very much a locked room setting, we know that at least one of the women is a killer and in true genius style, Ms. Jenkins creates another thrilling story.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
