Summary

She thought she'd got away with it. She was wrong.

Hannah Godley is an agony aunt on a London radio show Queen of Hearts. She's warm and empathetic; a good listener. Her catchphrase is: "be kind, always." But when a stranger phones in to tell a tragic story about her brother who killed himself after he was the victim of a terrible prank by two people, Hannah goes cold. Because she remembers Diane's brother well. In fact, all these years later, he still haunts her dreams. All because of that one bad thing she did when she was young....

Is Diane just a sad, lonely woman looking for a friend, or does she know what Hannah did and is looking for revenge? Because as Diane insinuates herself into her life and family, Hannah is going to discover that you can never truly escape that one bad thing you did - sooner or later, you're going to have to pay the price....

My type of book

Loved this book from start to finish, loved the build up which brought the book to ever her at the end

  • Overall
    3 out of 5 stars

Captivating (shame about the final chapters)

I very much enjoyed this book throughout until I got to the final few chapters... Oh no! Get ready to witness a very good story crumbling all to pieces. Then, there's no turning back. All the mistery and good drama that has been building up, at the end becomes just a ludicrous, nonsensical fantasy story.. No more realism, characters become caricatures. Those same characters that were quite believable during almost the entire book, at the most climatic point (literally last 5 or 6 chapters), they just start acting and talking silly garbage. No real people act like that! No, no, no! Really let down by those final chapters and ending..

Can see how it's going to go right away

I saw where this was going without even trying. That was a few chapters in. The rest of it was, what I dislike, an intelligent woman doing stupid things over and over. Then all of the sudden she'll say she knows, then doesn't see the predictable event.


It's one I should have skipped.
