Beautiful, creative, a little wild… Edie was the kind of girl who immediately caused a stir when she walked into your life. And she had dreams back then—but it didn’t take long for her to learn that things don’t always turn out the way you want them to.
Now, at thirty-three, Edie is working as a waitress, pregnant and alone. And when she becomes overwhelmed by the needs of her new baby and sinks into a bleak despair, she thinks that there’s no one to turn to…
But someone’s been watching Edie, waiting for the chance to prove once again what a perfect friend she can be. It’s no coincidence that Heather shows up on Edie’s doorstep, just when Edie needs her the most. So much has passed between them—so much envy, longing, and betrayal. And Edie’s about to learn a new lesson: those who have hurt us deeply—or who we have hurt—never let us go, not entirely…

Yet another stellar thriller from 2016! This book was reminiscent of a Single White Female theme. I cannot imagine the type of obsession that one can foster such as was portrayed in this book but it was well portrayed and make me get goosebumps a few times!
Edie and Heather definitely have a very odd relationship and not one that seems comfortable or normal by any means. The book was told in both of their points of view and went back and forth from past to present. It was a bit tricky to get used to it in the beginning and to sort out who was who, but once I caught on the book remained fairly fast paced.
The book is quite suspenseful, and very unique. It addressed all kinds of themes, such as the aforementioned obsession, friendship and what kind of betrayal both can bring. The main point was that not everything is as it seems and although I could not identify with either character, probably mostly because I found them somewhat creepy, I still truly enjoyed this book and the shocking things that happened.
