From the bestselling author of LIES take a holiday you won't forget . . .

Seven days. Three families. One killer.

It was supposed to be the perfect holiday, dreamed up by Kate as the ideal way to turn 40: four best friends and their husbands and children in a luxurious villa under the blazing sunshine of Languedoc-Roussillon.

But there is trouble in paradise. Kate suspects that her husband is having an affair, and that the other woman is one of her best friends.

One of these women is willing to sacrifice years of friendship and destroy her family. But which one? As Kate closes in on the truth in the stifling Mediterranean heat, she realises too late that the stakes are far higher than she ever imagined.

Because someone in the villa is prepared to kill to keep their secret hidden.

Excellent
great holiday read!
Kate, her closest friends and their families head to France on holiday. Kate then reads some messages on her husband’s phone that make her believe he is having an affair. The messages also imply that the other woman is probably on holiday with them. Who could it be? As she tries to work out which of her friends could betray her like this, things take a turn for the worse.

I was barely able to put this down – the book really is a page-turner. From the opening chapters, the suspense really holds your attention. While the book is mainly told from Kate’s perspective, this is mixed in wither with chapters from the points of view of her friends and family. These little chapters are a really nice touch and add to the mystery.

If you enjoy thrillers, you’ll love this – go, grab a copy and put it in the suitcase ready for your next holiday!
