If only she’d said no…
Katherine knew she’d had too many drinks, but they were only going a short distance. And as Eve pointed out, it was late, there was no traffic anyway…
Now, Katherine would do anything to turn back the clock. If anyone ever found out about the accident, it would ruin Katherine’s life. But no one needs to know because Eve was there too, and she’s going to help make it all go away.
Except something’s not quite right with Eve, and by the time Katherine realizes that…
It’s too late.
Arghh, when I started this I thought “oh no, how predictable, I know what’s going to happen here.”
So many red flags starting with a protagonist who can’t stop saying how brilliant she is and how clever and how everyone said so including her married boss, whom she is having an affair with (who of course is going to divorce his wife, not). Her mother is in an assisted living and sort of chokes on a bit of food . Why the woman is told her mother almost choked but didn’t is beyond me but this is the set up for her to meet Eve who has every women’s fiction sociopathic trait. The brilliant main character gets her a job for almost saving her mother then parties with her and allows this young woman to convince her she can drive drunk and on and on. The whole book is a spoiler. Its painful reading or listening. You know where its going , one misstep at a time.
Very disappointing for this Natalie Barelli fan.
