This is a nasty mean-spirited little book, shallow, poorly written and shrill throughout. The characters were unlikable. The plot didn't really make sense. I can't see how it got published at all.

Psychological Brittish thriller about two women who become very good friends - they seem to know what the other is thinking - and how their relationship starts to unravel when secrets are revealed. Deeply psychological novel ; not all what you it seems is the truth. Very good first novel.
