Best friends share everything. But murder is different. Isn’t it?
Keeley and Jude are closer than blood. Inseparable since childhood, they share everything: clothes, secrets, booze – and blame. So when they wake up after a new year’s party to find Keeley’s boyfriend stabbed to death beside them, they agree to share something else: the story they’ll tell the police.
But who is that story really meant to protect? Is Jude risking her bright future to protect her friend? Is there more to sharp-eyed Keeley than she lets on? Or are they conspiring to let Keeley’s brother get away with the drugs he’s been selling in their small town?
As the murder investigation sends ripples through their community, the history of the girls’ claustrophobic relationship comes under scrutiny – and they start to realise they might not, always, have shared as much as they thought.
Can their friendship survive sharing everything?
This was a great thriller for a debut author, Hannah’s writing is very descriptive and the way she tells the story is like you are part of the story. Two best friends but after a party they wake up to find one of their boyfriend’s has been stabbed to death, they go to the police but tell them their story. What will happen as the murder investigation gets underway? will it all come out eventually? The bond between both girls I found was a little claustrophobic and I had a feeling of uneasy just a few chapters in. It is a very well laid out story that you wonder where it will lead to, It is set in a small town in Northern Ireland and Hannah has definitely set the scene. I feel as though reading more into the girls lives, it is like peeling an onion, each layer has to come off to discover something new. It was suspenseful and brilliant and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good psychological thriller.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
