Summary

Two best friends. One missed chance. And a night that changes everything.         

Eve, Justin, Susie and Ed have been friends since they were 18. Now in their 30s, the four are still as close as ever, Thursday pub quiz night is still sacred and Eve is still secretly in love with Ed.

Maybe Eve should have moved on by now, but she can’t stop thinking about what could have been. And she knows Ed sometimes thinks about it, too.

Then one night, in an instant, all their lives change forever. And, as Eve learns she didn’t know her friends as well as she thought, she also discovers she isn’t the only person keeping secrets....

Terrible narration

I believe there is a good story in there, but narration is so poor, I simply can’t continue. I have no idea what character is what, manic narration poorly delivered.

Loved it

I loved the detail of this book. It is full of depth and switches nicely between being horrendously sad but also happy and hopeful. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Well-written but not for me

Well-written and great narration but I’ve 7 hours left and I find it quite depressing so I returned it... 😔

I expected more from Mhairi

I wanted to love this, but I found myself rolling my eyes and struggling to get through the ending, it was just TOO cheesy and predictable. I wanted a surprise and apart from the one at the beginning that is all I got!

I would recommend this if you want an easy listen, the narrator is pretty good but the story is in fact quite...dull.

A NICE, EASY, ENJOYABLE READ THAT SIMPLY ENTERTAINS.

This is a decent story, with likeable characters, who navigate the problems life throws in adversity. Friendship, relationships & family dynamics are explored when a tragedy occurs. Life can be full of love & laughter...but painfully cruel & challenging too. This audiobook was nice, easy read that gripped you from the first chapter. Enjoyed it muchly.

Nice story if you want a mild story of love

I must say I'm a little disappointed with this book. I really like most of Mhairi McFarlane books so maybe just didn't reach the expectations I had. It's a story that has a mildly interesting story of love if you can hold on the first 16 chapters of 46, in which mainly the main female character drowns and whains a little too much in her depression in not such an introspective way. The love story and turns that develop during the story between her friends and new acquaintances are quite nice and real yet they lack a little of fluidity of the story. I don't know if it's because apart from the part of her friend's loss there really isn't more to the story or the main character. The idea was good though I can't take the impression is quite mild.
