The heat is intense.
The secrets are stifling.
She just needs to escape . . .
Nine guests arrive at a remote villa in the south of France.
They know each other well. Or think they do.

Under the relentless sun, loyalties will be tested, secrets revealed, and tensions pushed to the point of no return.

Missing bits !
I quite enjoyed this book as it has a decent storyline....... however ...... there’s clearly something wrong with the editing as several times the story jumped suddenly without explanation - as if there were pages missing. Also some parts were repeated. It was like reading a book before it had been edited - like an early uncorrected version. Really quite annoying when you,be paid full price for it 🙁
