I loved it!! Omg I really did!!

Liv saw someone familiar on the beach and called out her name. SOPHIE!! But Sophie had died in an accident. How could it be her best friend? Could it?

The author Julia Roberts should write more of this genre – women’s fiction with tons of mystery. I enjoyed the familiarity of the initial half and the comfort it gave me as I settled into its pages.

Then the truths arrived, loud and banging, leaving both Sophie and me flabbergasted. Oh wow. The author was a cool, wicked woman. I was all piped up for a big confrontation when Ms. Roberts twisted the story upon itself. I love it when authors do that. That made me complete the book much faster.

Final impression – Fun and fast read with mystery and deception, emotions and friendship. Quite a niche for the author to have as she carved the story brilliantly.


Rating: 5 out of 5.

I was so sure I saw Sophie on the beach that day. But it couldn’t be her. Sophie’s dead…

Ever since we locked fingers and swore to be best friends at school, Sophie was there for me. When she married my brother, I followed her down the aisle as her bridesmaid, thrilled that we were becoming family. We laughed together and cried together. We shared everything. At least I thought we did.

And then she was gone. The terrible accident that took her life devastated me, and though everyone else has moved on, I can’t. She was so quiet, those last few months. I keep thinking there is something I don’t know…

Now I’m standing on the beach we visited when we were younger and there’s a woman with long blond hair a few metres away, playing with a dog in the sunshine. She turns, and I see Sophie. Heart racing, I struggle to my feet, but before I can reach her she’s vanished, leaving only footprints in the sand.

It can’t be Sophie… Can it? And do I want to know what she was running from, if the answer means I can no longer trust the people I love?

I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
