How far would you go for you best friend? For thirty years, best friends Stephanie and Philippa have been practically inseparable. There's nothing they would not do for one another. Until a few simple words change everything. 'I need you to say that I was with you.' Both women have always believed that friendship is built on mutual selflessness, compromise and trust. Are those beliefs now to be tested beyond endurance?

maybe a middle class housewife?
I love details and character development but oh my! this writer goes on and on with irrelavant detail,i googled this author and cannot believe this is one of the bestselling 'chick lit' authors in the uk, i mean is this what women want? is it? just rambling about everyone their thoughts their present their past on every page....... a conversation will start and will be interjected with a long monolgue about the person why is this necessary i dont get it!
I wouldnt mind some but its just getting on my nerves now this story could have been told in so much less time.
the performance wasnt the problem
oh my! too much to count
unless you like froth ,a snails pace story,annoying characters'an author obviously trying to just fill pages AVOID.
This book was excellent. Adele Parks is one of my favourite authors and I was not disappointed with this book. The characters are all fully developed with lots of detailed back story which only makes them all the more credible and three dimensional. The only thing I would say is that if you prefer a story where the tale grabs you excitedly from the outset then you may find it a little challenging because the main thrust of the story is not until a good halfway through. I did not find this a problem as I like well defined characters and of course I love Parks' prose and vivid descriptions. The narrator's voice took a little while to get used to but once I'd increased the pace to x 1.5 it was even more enjoyable. Well worth it!
Waiting for Michael Connolly's next book!
The reader was competent, characters were easy to differentiate by voice. The characters are defined well and the plot was easy to follow.
Kirsten - what a manipulative tart, but actually sad in her own way. What chance did a middle aged man stand. Having said she was my favourite character, I could happily give her a slap.
The start of the story, explains the friendship between the two main characters.
I wouldn't make a film of this book.
It is a bit frustrating in parts. No friend would grass up a mate so easily.
