Summary

It's always the husband...unless it's the best friend.

Kate, Aubrey and Jenny are inseparable at college - friends who promised they'd always be there for each other.

But 20 years later, their friendship is about to take a deadly turn.

Kate married the gorgeous party boy, Aubrey married up, and Jenny married the boy next door, but when one of the friends dies in shocking circumstances, will everyone assume that it's always the husband? Or could it be the best friend?

Wasn't what I expected

Without giving too much away.....I expected this to be about a rocky marriage but instead it's about friendship that formed in college years and how it influenced the characters in their adult years. It switches back between past and present in quite a clear way and keeps you guessing right till the end.

Some good parts but some bad

Not the best book I’ve read, the storyline was at points very unbelievable. It wasn’t a bad listen but it certainly wasn’t a great listen.

Annoying

The book tried to be clever and have surprise twists but it failed. The story was predictable and boring. The underdeveloped characters were so annoying and unlikable.

Hooked from page one

A refreshingly different thriller , well crafted story with all the twists you could want. I really could not put this book down
