Many thanks to publisher Bookouture for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Oooh the master player was back, and the way she spun the game had me chuckling in delight. A slow burn suspense that just pulled me in from the first word, and I think I breathed well only after I finished the book.
3 women, best friends Kelly, Fiona, and Tia were being harassed by an unknown caller, either with incriminating photographs or incidents or tax evasion, until the truth came gushing out with a clean sweep.
Having read many of the book by author Shalini Boland, I knew I was in for a twisted read. And this book was so different. There was a camaraderie initially where I got sucked into the lives of these women. The suspense was slowly built up as the strange incidents notched up in pace. There was something mesmerizing about it.
The author threw me the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that were these chapters, challenging me to solve it. Crazy that I was, I went about looking at each between midnight to 3 am, until at exactly 75%, the light bulb switched on and I realized what was happening in the book. From then on, it was a ride that I was eagerly waiting for, crossing my fingers, hoping to be proved right.
Was I right? Nooooo, not completely. The author could still sideswipe me with a few strokes of her pen.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Tia never harmed anyone. So why does someone want to destroy her?
Tia is walking home with her children, along the lakeside of their quiet, safe town, when she realises something is wrong with her five-year-old daughter, Rosie. She seems troubled, not at all her usual happy self.
But when Tia finally coaxes Rosie to open up, she wishes she hadn’t. Because her sweet daughter asks a question Tia never thought she’d hear.
‘Mummy, why did you kill someone?’
Tia knows how rumours spread around her small town. She just can’t understand who would have shared such a horrible story. Or why.
It can’t have anything to do with what happened. Only her two best friends really remember that…
Tia thought she could trust Fiona and Kelly with her life. They’ve been through so much together. But when she’s sent photos of herself that could tear her whole world apart, she starts to wonder. Someone is determined to punish her. But who? And will her friends stand by her, or will the past destroy all of their lives?
