Four women (Alison, Julie, Sarah and Heather) become friends and begin having coffee together after the kids go to school.
Their kids are healthy. Their homes are beautiful.
But each one has a dirty little secret.
Their perfect lives start to unravel when Alison spots a bruise on Heather’s wrist.
Alison, Julie and Sarah become convinced that Heather, married to a renowned surgeon, is being abused by him. They try to intervene and get her to leave her husband. They desperately want to save her from this obviously cruel marriage.
What transpires is a situation where not everything is as it seems.
How far will they go to save Heather and her unborn child?
If you like books by Liane Moriarty, then you’re likely to love this book. It proves that you never know what lengths you’ll go to until you’re stretched to the limit. Then you might find that you’re capable of doing things you never thought you’d do.
These four women become so enmeshed in their dilemma that they weave a web of deceit they can’t break out of. They’re in too deep to turn back.
I truly enjoyed this book. The twists and turns in the plot had me continually guessing. It was an “edge of your seat” type book that I didn’t want to see end. Yet I was curious to find out who had the most sinister secret among the four women.
Sometimes you don’t know how deep you’re in until it’s too late to extricate yourself from a scenario that proves to be your downfall.
They say that everyone is capable of murder under the right circumstances. You have to hope that you never find out what those circumstances are.
