Really good read. I read it all in one delicious sitting! I really needed to find out what was going on here! Sometimes in a book you coudn't really care about the characters but poor Esther is obviously a troubled soul, I need to find out she's going to be okay, right? Her husband and two children are dead as the result of a car crash. Esther's world has crashed too. She no longer cares about her appearance, has no friends apart from the lovely Amy and despises her sister Charlotte who she beli ...more

I was intrigued by this book title as I was curious as to what was happening at this woman's home. Well, that intrigue became full blown obsession. I thought so far through the book I had an idea of what was actually happening , because of reading other books by this author, part right, part wrong but it in no way detracted from the unfurling of this cleverly written plot. The range of emotions I went through reading this book went from one extreme to another. I just can't stop thinking about th ...more

Phenomenal, I have no words apart from, you really need to read this. Do you know who you are and who you can trust? If you think you do, then think again.
Each time I thought I could see where the story was going, I was way off. I read this in two sittings, which is rare for me. Just shows how fantastic this book really is.
I have a book hangover, nothing I feel like reading after this.
Brilliant!!

She has lost her husband and both children in a road traffic accident. Her sister Charlotte was also in the car with them and Esther blames her for the accident believing that Charlotte was having an affair with her husband. Esther keeps finding odd things around the house- torn up photographs of the children- something she wouldn’t ...more
