Kate trusts Della, and Della trusts Kate.
Their downfall is each other.
When Kate moves to London after the disappearance of her sister, she’s in need of a friend. A chance meeting leads Kate to Della, a life coach who runs support groups for young women, dubbed by Kate as ‘the Janes.’
Della takes a special interest in Kate, and Kate soon finds herself entangled in Della’s life – her house, her family, and her husband. It’s only when she realises that she’s in too deep that Della’s veneer begins to crumble, and the warnings from ‘the Janes’ begin to come true.
Why is Della so keen to keep Kate by her side? What does Kate have that Della might want? And what really lies beneath the surface of their friendship?
This for me was a slow burner thriller, it started of as quite a slow story but got more intense the further I got through the book. I found it dark with twists and turns, some of which I guessed before they came, all the characters are compelling with their own stories to tell, We as readers are lead to explore loss, betrayal and motherhood which comes with an intensity. I found Della quite creepy and unsettling, I wouldn’t want to meet her. It is written well for a thriller.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review. Thank you Netgalley and Harper Collins for sending me a copy.
