Seven days. Three families. One killer.

It was supposed to be the perfect holiday, dreamed up by Kate as the ideal way to turn 40: four best friends and their husbands and children in a luxurious villa under the blazing sunshine of Languedoc-Roussillon. 

But there is trouble in paradise. Kate suspects that her husband is having an affair, and that the other woman is one of her best friends. 

One of these women is willing to sacrifice years of friendship and destroy her family. But which one? As Kate closes in on the truth in the stifling Mediterranean heat, she realises too late that the stakes are far higher than she ever imagined. 

Because someone in the villa is prepared to kill to keep their secret hidden.

Well this is definitely a book about a holiday,  for four friends.  Right from the start you sense something epic is going to happen on this trip. 

What frustrated me was that we were given so many clues and red herrings about the truth,  and it seemed like Kate was going round in circles about some suspicious messages found on husband Sean's phone, that the real juicy action took until around 85% to get going. 

It may be that reading this on holiday myself and not checking the blurb,  meant that I was expecting it to be a different sort of book to what it was.

I enjoyed the writing style,  and once I got used to getting insights into almost all the characters through dedicated chapters,  it became easier to follow. 

I would happily read another book from this author in the future. He certainly kept me guessing throughout,  and I couldn't have predicted half of it. 

Thank you to Zaffre for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
