My review

I wanted to read Keep Your Friends Close as I enjoyed reading Just What Kind Of Mother Are You? I just could not put Keep your Friends Close down. Paula Daly has such an incredible ability to make skeleton’s come out of the closet. The story had me ultimately craving for more to find out what was going to happen next.
Keep Your Friends Close is seasoned with Natty and Sean Wainwright who are blissfully happy together with their two children, a lavish big house and owning their own hotel. Out the blue One of the Wainwrights daughter’s unfortunately is taken ill to a hospital while she is in France on a school trip. Natty asks her best Eve if she would help look after Sean her husband and Alice her younger daughter. For Natty her main concern is that she stays with her daughter in france until she is well to come home. As Natty and Eve have best of friends for may years sharing secrets and trust each other fully Eve is absolutely.the appropriate friend to help as Eve has watched Natty’s and Sean’s girls grow up. But how well does Natty know Eve after all these years being best friends? .When Natty returns home her life is shattered as Eve has stolen her husband. So much more destruction adapts for the Wainwright family.
I strongly nominate Paula Daly’s Keep your Friends Close and What Kind of Mother Are You? to every woman reader. I hope that all readers will totally love this story as much as I have.
