Dear Carys, Zoe and Andrea
Come and join me for my fortieth birthday adventure weekend, full of mysteries and surprises
the like of which you can’t imagine.
When Joanne’s friends reluctantly accept an invitation to her birthday party, it quickly becomes clear that there is more to this weekend than they are expecting.
One of them is hiding a secret.
And Joanne is planning to reveal it…
A weekend away in a cottage in the woods sounds like fun – until no one can hear your cries for help.
A party to die for.
Who will survive?

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We’ve all received a birthday party invitation that we’ve wished we could have got out of. Within a few pages of this slick thriller, it becomes very clear that Carys, Zoe and Andrea should have found some better excuses. The three women are invited to a charming-but-very-(huge red flag)-isolated cottage in the countryside by their friend, Joanne. Sue Fortin builds the suspense exquisitely as Joanne makes it very clear that the women are gathered for a more sinister reason than her 40th birthday celebrations.
A bloody good read
Kept me up late on a few mights. Very good indeed.
Unexpected twists and turns
A great book from start to finish, I couldn’t put it down once I started reading!
Engrossing! Keeps you guessing right until the last page!
Loved this book, I was guessing right up until the end. And was not expecting the ending that I read. Really enjoyed the book and will definitely be reading other books by this author :)
