Description: How well do you really know your best friend?
Kat Grant and Alice Campbell have a friendship forged in shared confidences and long lunches lubricated by expensive wine. Though they’re very different women—the artsy socialite and the struggling suburbanite—they’re each other’s rocks. But even rocks crumble under pressure. Like when Kat’s financier husband, Howard, plunges to his death from the second-floor balcony of their South Florida mansion.
Howard was a jerk, a drunk, a bully and, police say, a murder victim. The questions begin piling up. Like why Kat has suddenly gone dark: no calls, no texts and no chance her wealthy family will let Alice see her. Why investigators are looking so hard in Alice’s direction. Who stands to get hurt next. And who is the cool liar—the masterful manipulator behind it all.
Wow! Just wow! I love a good mystery and I was definitely not disappointed with this one. The premise was fantastic. The characters were strong and interacted well. They were relatable and likeable. The scenarios were well thought out and were presented smoothly. Just when I thought that I had it totally figured out, I was thrown for a loop. Not many books do that for me so this was a very pleasant surprise.
I am rating this book Five Blue Books because it had me on the edge of my seat on more than one occasion. It was well written and I will be looking more into this author. Highly recommend!
