About the Book:
Orla and Kate have been best friends forever. Together they’ve faced it all – be it Orla’s struggles as a new mother or Kate’s messy divorce. And whatever else happens in their lives, they can always look forward to their annual weekend away. This year, they’re off to Lisbon: the perfect flat, the perfect view, the perfect itinerary. And what better way to kick things off in style than with the perfect night out? But when Orla wakes up the next morning, Kate is gone. Brushed off by the police and with only a fuzzy memory of the night’s events, Orla is her friend’s only hope. As she frantically retraces their steps, Orla makes a series of shattering discoveries that threaten everything she holds dear. Because while Lisbon holds the secret of what happened that night, the truth may lie closer to home…

I really liked this book and didn’t see the end coming, it was definitely a shocker. It had a really different plot line, I know it sound like the usual stuff but trust is a little different. I was hooked from the first page. The only complaint that I have is that this book was so intriguing that I missed out on sleep a couple nights.

I love a good psychological thriller but can usually figure out the the big reveal...Not this time. I won’t say all the twists were a surprise, I figured out some things earlier on but the actual ending was not what I expected. You do have to suspend belief a little bit and I usually hate that but it worked here. (Hence the four stars instead of five.) I would definitely recommend this book and I will gladly watch out for more books written by Sarah Alderson. That's the best compliment I can give an author.

Thank you NetGalley, Avon Books UK and Sarah Alderson for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
