___________________________________

It all started with one little lie . . .

Jane and Marnie have been inseparable since they were eleven years old. They have a lot in common. In their early twenties they both fell in love and married handsome young men.

But Jane never liked Marnie's husband. He was always so loud and obnoxious, so much larger than life. Which is rather ironic now, of course.

Because if Jane had been honest - if she hadn't lied - then perhaps her best friend's husband might still be alive . . .

This is Jane's opportunity to tell the truth, the question is:
Do you believe her?

Too Slow & Not Very Thrilling!

This promised a lot and I was really keen to start it once I’d read the blurb. Unfortunately there are far FAR too many words in this book! It’s very much a stream of consciousness from the perspective of Jane the narrator and I found it to be far too much of a ramble! The pacing of the story is very odd with stop-start moments throughout. These are caused to a large extent by a number of unnecessary characters and small subplot lines that go nowhere and distract from the actual events. I found it very difficult to keep going at times. Worse even than all that though was the general lack of thrills in this so called thriller. The ‘twist’ at the end made no grammatical sense but even so was easy to spot coming. Disappointing.
