Book Summary:

Lucy has a lovely husband, a job she adores as a teacher, and a house on Mulberry Avenue. Life isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty close.

She’s also got Amber. Her newest friend and neighbor. They’ve got so much in common. Even if Amber’s life sometimes seems a lot more glamorous and exciting, she shares Lucy’s down-to-earth sense of humor. And Amber seems so interested in Lucy and her life. It’s like they never run out of things to talk about.

But then Amber starts acting strangely. She confides in Lucy that she’s getting threatening messages.

Amber is scared and the only person she can turn to is Lucy. So the two friends decide that Amber will stay at Lucy’s house until things calm down.

Lucy wants to protect her friend. But can she really trust Amber? Because sometimes other people are not all that they seem. Sometimes they have secrets. And they’d do anything, hurt anyone, to keep them.

My Review:

You never know just who you can trust. You’d think it would be your best friend or your husband. But looks can be deceiving. You never truly know what’s in someone’s heart.

Lucy found a friend who gave her joy and made her laugh. The two had loads of fun together.

Until they don’t anymore.

I enjoyed this book. Lucy is like any other woman who craves the friendship of another female. But she’s too good, too giving. And she gets burned big time.

You won’t see the end coming.

About The Author:

I was a journalist on women’s magazines and national newspapers before leaving it all behind for a career in TV. And I worked as  a producer with the BBC. I worked on garden makeovers, kitchen takeovers and daytime sofas. All the time I was making copious notes so that one day I might escape to the country and turn it all into a book.

After much deliberation I left my life in TV to write. It wasn’t easy and I don’t have a pad in Beverly Hills. But I’m lucky enough to now be a full time author and spend my days making stuff up. I imagine myself in far away places with strange sounding names with someone other than my husband. Sshhh. Don’t tell him!
