Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

A hot Italian summer. Two seemingly happy couples. And one dark secret that, once spilled, could ruin them all....

Laura's marriage is at a crossroads.

When she discovers Villa Luna Rossa, a crumbling villa in the Italian countryside, she convinces her husband, Nick, to embark on a new life there.

But as the intense summer heat rises, Laura quickly realises that her issues with Nick haven't been left behind.

So it's a relief when their first guests arrive—a glamorous American couple.

Laura can't help but be drawn to these strangers.

As she gets closer to the couple, though, she realises that everyone at Villa Luna Rossa is hiding something. And as the summer draws to a close, no secret will be safe....

The irresistible new novel from R&J best-selling author of The Heatwave.

My new favourite narrator

Loved the narrator on this book. The book itself was also great, it kept you on edge throughout the whole book. Loved the setting too. Perfect summer book.

A wasted opportunity

Well-written and a promising setting and premise. However if you want to spend hours in the company of idle, vacuous people who do nothing but drink, bicker and think about sex - this is the book for you!
