Summary

What happens when your best friend gets what you've always wanted?

Krissie and Sarah - best friends for years - have always wanted different things from life. Krissie has no desire to settle down, whereas Sarah married a doctor in her early twenties and is dying to start a family. So when Krissie becomes pregnant after a fling and Sarah can't seem to conceive, things get a little tense.

Krissie and Sarah decide to go on holiday along with Sarah's husband in the hope of getting their friendship back on track. But what starts as a much-needed break soon becomes a nightmare of sexual tension, murder and mayhem...

Good story, awful narration!

Why Oh why not get a real Scot to narrate this instead of the excruciatingly awful "Scottish" accent attempted by the narrator?

Terrific

There were times I had some doubts about the behaviour of the characters - contrived to fit a gripping story - but Fitzgerald tells a great & moving story which is also beautifully told.
