Although i found the story hooked me in i cant say i really enjoyed it, fornd it tiresome the way of reading the characters in the same situations and have to admit that now about 3 weeks after finishing it can't actually remember what it was that Emma had done to cause all those things to happenRead moreLess
"Good read...careful of your new BFF's though!…"
I won this book in a free give-away from Mumsnet.com.
I loved reading the book every night after my two boys were put to bed. This book speaks to women who have had careers and then stayed at home with small children. I love the way Harriet Lane describes everyday situations, especially life with small children. Living in Dorset, her very believable descriptions of London made me want to spend another weekend there (but this time sans enfants!).
The author drip-fed the reader information about Nina’s intentions, too much of it to make it really intense. I was a little bored by the end, wondering when the real reason for Nina’s hatred would be revealed. Did I agree with the ending? No, but the build-up right up to the last page served to salvage the plot a little.
Domestic noirs are fast becoming more popular and this book has taken the female friendship to new levels. I haven’t read her first book, Alys, Always, but reading the reviews, it should be better than Her so will give it a read.Read moreLess
"Couldn't put the book down!…"
I got into the book straight away which is always a good thing.
I loved how it was from 2 very different perspectives. It had me guessing all the way through why things were happening and the reasons behind it all.
However after all the waiting it did come to quite an abrupt end but I still loved it and will happily give it 5*Read moreLess
"Good read but ending too sudden…"
Took some getting into but compelling once i got into it. Was disappointed with ending, it was like the author had run out of what to write next and just suddenly ended it, couldve gone on a lot moreRead moreLess

Gripping. I thought it started off a bit slow, I didn't get it. Then all of a sudden I just did. I loved the way we saw both perspectives of the story.
The ending, wow! I want to know what happens next! Brilliantly writtenRead moreLess
I have just received my copy of this book this morning, I read few pages already....I am already hooked. It is nicely written and I can't wait to see what happen next.Read moreLess
