Vengeance leads to anger in this thrilling book by Jill Childs. It started off with an apparently innocent meeting while on vacation. They are Lotte and Ros and they got together one night for drinks. This does not end their new acquaintance. In fact, while out having drink after drink, Ros reveals a secret from her past that Lotte plans on using to her full advantage. Waking up the next morning in a hotel room with a banger of a hangover, Ros does not realize that her nightmare is just beginning.
Now neighbors with Lotte, their daughters now in the same school, they are bound to be tied together for a long time. Will Lotte exploit Ros's secret? While the story seemed to be based on revenge, long-held secrets and anger, I found myself truly shocked as all of the events surrounding Lotte and Ros unfolded. This was especially the case as the story often reflected Lotte's past and that in itself was quite intriguing. Other than wishing the ending was fleshed out a bit more, this was another good read by Jill Childs.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
