Keep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly

Keep Your Friends CloseKeep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read What Kind of Mother are You? by this author and was blown away. Truly, I was hooked.

So when this book came up for me to read and review as a complimentary book I took it with both hands and started reading it almost right away.

I can honestly say that this book is just as good as the one I read before. It had the same gripping effect on me, I was truly quite moody when I had to put my Kindle down when I had things to do. It was like interrupting me in the middle of a movie!

I will be following, no, stalking, this author, she is one of my top favourites in the thriller department now. I love psychological thrillers that keep your brain clicking over.

What makes a good thriller like this to me is that each plot that comes forward, each event that happens, each character that is flawed, each 'normal' person in a book is portrayed, you are always held in doubt of if what you are thinking is right.

Paula Daly has a unique way of holding me in the palm of her hands as she writes, gasping with my tongue out to what is going to happen next.

The twist at the end of this book was.............yes! yes! just desserts!

Just loved it.

Would I recommend it? Yes, yes and yes.

**I was given this book as a complimentary advance read by Random House UK, Transworld Publishers via Net Galley**

What do you do when your best friend steals your life?

Natty and Sean Wainwright are happily married. Rock solid in fact. So when Natty's oldest friend, Eve Dalladay, appears - just as their daughter collapses on a school trip in France - Natty has no qualms about leaving Eve with Sean to help out at home.

Two weeks later and Natty finds Eve has slotted into family life too well. Natty's husband has fallen in love with Eve. He's sorry, he tells her, but their marriage is over.

With no option but to put a brave face on things for the sake of the children, Natty embarks on building a new life for herself.

And then she receives the note.

Eve has done this before, more than once, and with fatal consequences
