Quite formulaic it was barring a twist midway down the book.

4 mums with children around the same age were best friends, until Grace came back home from Australia. During an evening out, one of the mums, Anna, disappeared. Grace was heartbroken that her childhood friend was missing, and nobody seemed to bother. Someone was hiding something.

Heidi Perks was quite a prolific author until she got caught into the magic of writing about toxic friendship and altered dynamics, not knowing both were passé in 2021.

The story had half-developed characters, and some truths were well hidden. The author twisted the plotline well, but the writing was pretty repetitive. Both Grace and Anna went round and round in circles.

Due credit to the author got having tried to infiltrate the story with suspenseful crumbs. But ultimately, they had all been picked up in earlier books by other authors. So they too appeared jaded.

I could skip huge sections and get to the ending. I wished the author had something more happening in the end to make it exciting. But sadly enough, the ending too was a scene repeated in the earlier section of the book.

The world is a circle, Mars is too. This book written on a flat surface still turned out to be circle. Wonder of wonders… Sometimes I do sarcasm the best.

On to my next…

Anna Robinson hasn’t been seen since she went on a night out with her four closest friends.

She has a loving husband and a son she adores. Surely she wouldn’t abandon them and her perfect life. . .

But what has happened to her?

At the school gates, it’s not long before the rumours start. Anna’s oldest friend Grace is beside herself with worry – desperately searching for answers, and certain that someone is hiding the truth.

With each day that passes, Anna’s life is under increasing threat. And a the pressure mounts, it won’t be long before something cracks. . .

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.
