Melanie gets an email from her old college friend, who she hasn’t talked to in years. Mel is in England and Abi has relocated to Los Angeles. But Abi is coming home because she is getting a divorce and needs a change of scenery. Mel decides to invite Abi to stay with her family. Mel lost touch with Abi while in college because Mel got pregnant after a one night stand. Now happily married to Ben, they have two daughters and Mel’s 17-year-old son, Liam. Abi accepts the invite and is soon turning Mel’s world upside down. She is drinking more and just having a good time.
Abi ends up staying longer than a weekend and is soon a part of the family. Except Abi starts acting colder towards Mel. And has a secret boyfriend. When Mel finds out who the boyfriend is, she is shocked. What game is Abi playing? And could it have to do with a secret from Mel’s past?
This was a pretty good psychological thriller. It was a little bit predictable but the characters and story are worth giving this one a read.
