  • Cleverly Plotted, Beautifully Written!

    I have previously read several of Caroline England's novels, but this latest one takes her writing to a higher level entirely. An awesome read! This is the story of the friendship between Kate and Jo; they first met at eight years old when they were both sent to boarding school. The tale goes from then to the present day and we slowly learn how deep their relationship is, and the history they share together. We make the acquaintance of their family and friends and even find out their innermost secrets - and, boy, are they worth learning! This is a skilfully created novel, drawing the reader into a very interesting and spellbinding tale from the very beginning - I could barely manage to set it aside when my eyes were drooping in bed! Although the layers are peeled back slowly, there is always something going on to keep focus. With a whopping big surprise at the end of the book, it pays to keep your wits about you - the clues are there and I picked up on one quite late on and was delighted to be proved right! It is a glorious tale from first to last, and definitely propels this author higher in my estimation (and I already admired her previous work immensely). So very cleverly plotted as well as beautifully written, it is a very entertaining and satisfying read with everything tied up nice and neatly by the final words. Just as I like it, and there is no doubt in my mind that this one fully earns five sparkling, dancing stars!

  • Stunning & Awesome!

    Caroline England writes a hugely engrossing and entertaining novel that deals with some serious issues in the style of an Alice Feeney book. Widowed Jo Wragg is in her late thirties and desperately longs for a child. Plagued by jealousy, she dreams of living the life of her childhood friend, Kate Bayden-Jones, who is married to her dashingly handsome husband, Tom and together they have a beautiful daughter, Alice. As Jo becomes increasingly involved in Kate’s life, their friendship begins to deteriorate and both women reflect on the choices they have made for themselves and their families. Caroline England delivers an unstoppable and exuberant story of women's friendship with a toxic concoction of illicit relationships, secrets, jealousy and lies. It explores the friendship between Kate and Jo; they first met at eight years old when they were both sent to boarding school. The novel’s great strength is in the way Caroline England weaves past and present, returning to their boarding school days to show how both girls were shaped by the hardship they suffered there. The atmosphere of frozen winters at St Luke’s school is vividly portrayed and the final scene from the past delivers a mind-blowing twist that made me question everything that came before. Betray Her is a cracking story and a book that I revelled in all the way through. It brought no disappointments and everything was beautifully wrapped up in the fabulous finale. An awesome read which I'm very happy to recommend and also award five stars! I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Little, Brown Book Group via NetGalley at my own request. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
