My review

This story is about six friends and neighbours where one commits suicide and the others are left shell-shocked. How can the friend who was the most bubbly and most joyful, who had a perfect zest for life, commit such an ultimate act?? What caused her so much pain that she thought death was a better way out?? And why didn’t they notice her pain?? 

This is one of the very good books that I have read this year just for the fact that the book does not pretend to be more than it is, and it has the right amount of friendship along with mystery

The author, E C Diskin has done a great job showing us a truth as to how much do we really know our best friends, and sometimes a brutal act of one can uncover the layers hidden inside. 

I especially liked the fact that even though there are mysteries within the mysteries, there is an underlying core of friendship which runs through the story. That made the book so much more interesting. There is warmth in the book that overshadowed the cold act and the book leaves us with a intense need,  to meet and connect with our girlfriends. 

A book which can remind us about the value of friendship, the kind which holds us upright during moments of strive, is a good book in my view and I thank Ms. Diskin for that. 

I can find my niggles in this book but I don’t want to because this book is read as a whole story, not analysed by its individual parts

I received an ARC from NetGalley and publisher Thomas and Mercer and this is my honest and unbiased opinion 

My rating : 5 stars 

About the Author 

E.C. Diskin is the author of the bestselling novels The Green Line and Broken Grace. She lives outside Chicago with her family. 

Book blurb 

When Shea Walker, a sunny, easygoing mom, is found dead in a bathtub with a stomach full of booze and pills, the shocking discovery shatters the complacency of her comfortable suburban community.

Kat Burrows, Shea’s longtime friend and former neighbor, is hit hardest. How could a woman she thought she knew so well come to such a sordid end? Compelled to uncover the truth of Shea’s final months, Kat delves beneath the orderly surface of her familiar world to discover a web of thwarted desire, shameful secrets, and shocking betrayal that suggests a scarier explanation for what happened to Shea.

          1. Well I don’t know about that. I generally like similar stuff. I comment on things which I understand or which I like

          2. That’s wonderful thing indeed. But I do comment even I don’t understand or like . I think I give value to being human than what they can produce or think.

          3. Value to being human to whom?? Yourself or them?? Each one of us has a talent to write on some topic. So our comments add to mutual understanding or we learn more. It’s always learning which adds value to us being human.

          4. It’s not about wise or crazy.. It is about respecting a human being. If anyone comments on my post, I comment back. That’s respect
