You shared a secret with the wrong person.
Janey Markham is thrilled to be moving with her family to Buckingham Crescent, the smartest address in a desirable suburban town.
Worried she’ll be excluded by the glossy local mothers, Janey is thrilled when she meets Tanya, the kind of woman she has always looked up to. Tanya takes Janey under her wing, and her teenage daughter Angel is amazing with Janey’s little boy. As Janey and Tanya grow closer, Janey feels she can finally leave her troubled past behind.
But then everything changes…
In a weak moment over a bottle of wine, Janey finds herself telling Tanya her most shocking secret. Why wouldn’t she trust her new friend?
The following day, Janey sees Angel, with a man old enough to be her father, pushing someone into a car. The next day a body is found and police appeal for witnesses – and share a picture of the same car…
When Janey tells Tanya she is going to the police, Tanya turns threatening. She’ll stop at nothing to defend Angel, even if her daughter is guilty. If Janey says anything, Tanya will make sure that her dark secret gets out.
Janey faces an impossible choice. Stay quiet about what she saw that terrible day. Or speak up, and destroy the family she has worked so hard to protect…
This book is very addictive, so make sure you have plenty of time when you decide to settle down with it, because once you start you are going to want to finish it as soon as possible. Forewarned is fore armed. 😉
When you move, you always feel a bit lost in the beginning. Everything that you knew you well, you had to leave behind and being accepted in the new community is very important.
Making new friends often also means opening up to them, but never about that horrible secret you are hiding! Maybe you should have declined that last glass of fizz…
Who is genuine and who could easily be nominated for actor or actress of the year?
