Throwback Thursday is a meme created by Renee at It’s Book Talk to share old favorite books rather than just the new shiny ones. This is a great idea to bring back to life some much-loved books. Please feel free to join in.
My choice for this week is:
July 28, 2016 Harper Collins
Beautiful, creative, a little wild… Edie was the kind of girl who immediately caused a stir when she walked into your life. And she had dreams back then—but it didn’t take long for her to learn that things don’t always turn out the way you want them to.
Now, at thirty-three, Edie is working as a waitress, pregnant and alone. And when she becomes overwhelmed by the needs of her new baby and sinks into a bleak despair, she thinks that there’s no one to turn to…
But someone’s been watching Edie, waiting for the chance to prove once again what a perfect friend she can be. It’s no coincidence that Heather shows up on Edie’s doorstep, just when Edie needs her the most. So much has passed between them—so much envy, longing, and betrayal. And Edie’s about to learn a new lesson: those who have hurt us deeply—or who we have hurt—never let us go, not entirely…
I read this novel a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it.
Thirty-three year old Edie is pregnant and alone. When the doorbell rings one evening, Edie is shocked to find her former best friend, Heather standing there. It’s been seventeen years and Edie has dreaded something like this, a reunion with someone that she had hoped she would never see again.
They became close friends very quickly when they were sixteen. But when Edie found a boyfriend things started to change. But Heather didn’t want things to change, she didn’t want to lose Edie.
However, not only do things change but everything goes horribly wrong. Betrayal and anger set things in motion that changes both of their lives completely, revealing secrets they both kept all of these years.
So who betrayed who?
What exactly happened all those years ago? And why has Heather chosen to find Edie now?
I thought this was a really good psychological thriller. Suspenseful, with a clever and unique plot. Lots of little twists throughout the book made it even more enjoyable. It shows the darker side of friendship. And shows that everything is not always what it seems.
I am about to read the author’s new novel “The Lies We Told“. It sounds really intriguing. I hope I enjoy it as much as I enjoyed this one!
Happy Throwback Thursday everyone!
