Some things can’t stay a secret for ever.

Gripping from start to finish slick plotting, sharp twists and a pitch-perfect understanding of the may unique ways in which female friends hurt one another. Dark, smart and compulsive.

Toxic friendships, an isolated house, a dark snowy wood. Everyone’s worst nightmare and the perfect ingredients for this tense, terrifying novel.

 MY REVIEW

 After ten years of Leonora not seeing her best friend Clare from school she receives an email from Florence who is organizing Clare’s hen do. But why now does Clare not want to see Nora, this is the question Leonora asks herself.
All of the dark, dark characters meet in a dark dark wood in a glass house. Everyone seems friendly and introduces themselves Leonora tells everyone that is called Nora for short and is a writer for crime fiction. Nina is a doctor training to be a surgeon, Melanie had just had a six month old baby. Tom Deauxma is a playwright, Clare works for a theatre company. Florence who is nicked named Flo seems to be a bit of mystery.With toxic friendships, there are many ways in which female friends hurt one another. Some hen parties are bad. This one is going to murder.
