Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The twisty new thriller from the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Rumour.

As a child, it was just a game. As an adult, it was a living nightmare.

When teenage friends Lizzie and Alice decide to head off for a walk in the countryside, they are blissfully unaware that this will be their final day together - and that only Lizzie will come back alive. 

Lizzie has no memory of what happened in the moments before Alice died - she only knows that it must have been a tragic accident. But as she tries to cope with her grief, she is shocked to find herself alienated from Alice’s friends and relatives. They are convinced she somehow had a part to play in her friend’s death. 

Twelve years later, unpacking boxes in the new home she shares with her fiancé, Lizzie is horrified to find traumatic memories and paranoia suddenly surfacing. Is the trauma of the accident finally catching up with her, or could someone be trying to threaten her newfound happiness?

Twelve years is a long time to wait when you’re planning the perfect revenge....

Lady Edith rises again

the story is good, a twist or 2, however if you thought Lady Edith from Downtown Abbey was a wet blanket, prepare yourself for this dishcloth.

Predictable

Very predictable and obvious. Main character was annoying and a bit of a wet blanket.

ok

Big fan of Lesley Kara’s other books, a tiny bit disappointed with this one. I wish I has bought the book and not the audible book because I wasn’t fussed with the narration at all. Otherwise a good read with some good twists.

Lesley Kara is on of my favourite authors and I always enjoy her books. I was not disappointed. However the Rumour will be always my best.
