This is my first Jane Fallon book and it certainly will not be my last. I found this story funny and dramatic. Every chapter I found I wanted more so gave in and read another chapter. The characters were on point and the one liners were hilarious. I wasn’t expecting twists that turn up in this story either. I look forward to my next Jane Fallon book.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
Rumours, secrets and lies. It’s all in a day’s work.
Tamsin and her best friend Michelle have been inseparable since they were teenagers. Even now they spend all their time together, along with Patrick, Michelle’s handsome husband.
So when Tamsin hears a rumour that Patrick is having an affair, she is furious. Unwilling to ignore it, Tamsin plots a scheme to catch Patrick in the act, using her assistant Bea as live-bait. It should be fool proof.
After all, Tamsin can trust Bea with anything. From her daily coffee order to fetching her dry-cleaning, writing reports and doing all the filing – Bea does everything with a smile on her face.
Except Tamsin never considered Bea might have her own agenda.
And if she does, then Tamsin really needs to watch her back . . .
I had never read any of Jane Fallon’s books before this one and to be honest never heard of her before. I choose this book as I had heard good things about it. It was alright but not really my cup of tea. I liked how the chapters were each person as you get a real perspective on how each person is dealing with the situation. But I didn’t really enjoy it as I think sometimes when you read a book and it seems a bit close to home it puts you off. I wasn’t keen On Tamsin either, I mean who lies to their best friend, I just didn’t get it. I did persist until the end but it wasn’t for me.
