  • Enjoyable read, you will keep turning the pages

    Three women Marisa, Claire and Elly. Three friends. All of them have secrets not just from each other but also from their husbands or partners. Marisa is unhappily married to Avery a narcissistic plastic surgeon who flirts with every attractive woman he sees and takes his wife Marisa or Ris as she is called by her friends for granted. She is lonely since her twin daughters have gone off to university in LA feeling empty nest syndrome. She wants to help her friends in any way she can and is there for them. So when a young woman Jody turns up at Marisa’s house she feels she has to help her. Jody reminds her of herself when she was younger. Claire is desperate to have a baby with her husband Dane but it’s not happening she is so insecure terrified she is going to lose her husband who she loves deeply but is hiding secrets from him that she fears will end her marriage. Is it Claire’s fault that she isn’t able to conceive a child? What secrets is she hiding? And does Dane have secrets from Claire as well? Elly no longer trusts men after finding out her now ex husband was already married and had 3 children with his other wife, living a double life. But who is her lover and who is she going to hurt most when the wife finds out which she will as Elly is going to tell her herself when the time is right. There are so many secrets between the women and their husbands in this book you will think you have guessed it and then the story goes in a different direction and you have to rethink. This is a very well written book which just keeps you guessing. The story is told through the three different female characters perspectives. I enjoyed reading it although it’s slightly different to my usual reading. I’m not sure that any of the women are really very likeable. Marisa is probably the more genuine in ways that she just wants to help people but I feel this is because she is so lonely in an unhappy marriage but she enjoys the money and security that that marriage brings. I did stay up until 4 in the morning to finish this though so that goes to show how good it is I just had to know the answers and the twist at the end which I had actually guessed a couple of chapters before the end. If you haven’t read anything by Nicola Marsh and you like a psychological thriller then this is a good place to start. Thank you to #netgalley #Bookouture #NicolaMarsh for letting me have an ARC of this book all opinions are mine and honest.

  • The Scandal....a great read....

    I’m not a great fan of character chapters but the way Nicola did it was unique and kept the interest going, not to mention the intrigue. The suspense was riveting right to the very end. I certainly did not see that coming! I will definitely read another Nicola Marsh book. This is a 4 star book.

  • A twisted web of deceit!

    This is my first Nicola Marsh book and I can't wait to read the next one! I loved this tangled web of friendship and lies, which kept teasing me into one line of thinking, only to make me realise I'd got it all wrong and something else entirely was happening. The writing style flows along at a brilliant pace and I stopped everything until I'd got to the end. Just one more chapter, I kept telling myself, then I had to read the next and the next. Phew! A cracking read :) Loved it.

  • The Scandal

    Wow I did not see that coming.....can't say I liked the three friends too much or the way they lived but I was intrigued by them. Quite a strange life they lived . As they say 'money does not buy happiness'. So true in this case. But the book was so well written you have to keep reading to the shocking end

  • The Scandal

    Another amazing mystery depicting relationships with unseen secrets and motives that belie the facades that they hide behind. Conflicted personalities are well written and revealed as events unfold. Totally engrossing!
