‘I understand better than you can imagine the need to hide inside a fabricated world because the truth of your reality is too awful to handle.’
She’ll do anything for you…My name is Alex, and my world has been shattered.
My husband has left me.
My children won’t speak to me.
My friend Carrie is the only person I have.
She’s the only one I can trust to keep all my secrets.
She’d never do anything to let me down.
This dark, gripping psychological thriller will have you holding your breath until the very last page. Fans of Behind Closed Doors, Sometimes I Lie, and The Girl on the Train will be captivated.
Oh my Barbara Copperthwaite…you have certainly climbed the ladder of awesomeness on our list of awesome authors! I can not even tell you how many times I swore I had these cast of characters pegged. Yup, I had it all figured out (like a dozen times)! The first time I thought I “figured it out” I thought to myself “well that was fast. Now how will I get through the rest of the book”?
But wait a minute… was I wrong! I seriously couldn’t put this book down. Every time I turned the page, something more exciting revealed itself! We absolutely LOVED the utter suspense, bat shit crazy characters, and the plot twists that thickened by the chapter! Can we give a book 10 ⭐️? We don’t do that often but this one totally deserved it!
The absolute best part of this book was being able to bounce ideas and theories off of my book bestie. We are intense readers of this genre and we often guess the major plot twist before the end of the book. Not this one! You know a book is great when you can’t wait to discuss it with others!
When an author combines a crazy cast of characters, a rollercoaster of plot twists, and a shocking twist at several points in the story… you most certainly have a recipe for a top thriller of the year!
If you can read this book and guess who the liars, cheaters and deceivers are… kudos to you, but I think you’re kidding yourself!
Now, of you’ll excuse me, I have to find a cure for this book hangover so I can begin my next read!
Barbara is the Amazon and USA Today bestselling author of psychological thrillers INVISIBLE, FLOWERS FOR THE DEAD, THE DARKEST LIES, and HER LAST SECRET. Her latest book is THE PERFECT FRIEND.
More importantly, she loves cakes, wildlife photography and, last but definitely not least, her two dogs, Scamp and Buddy (who force her to throw tennis balls for them for hours).
Having spent over twenty years as a national newspaper and magazine journalist, Barbara has interviewed the real victims of crime – and also those who have carried those crimes out. She is fascinated by creating realistic, complex characters, and taking them apart before the readers’ eyes in order to discover just how much it takes to push a person over a line.
When not writing feverishly, she is often found hiding behind a camera, taking wildlife photographs.
