About the Book


She’ll do anything for you…

My name is Alex, and my world has been shattered.
My husband has left me.
My children won’t speak to me.
My friend Carrie is the only person I have.
She’s the only one I can trust to keep all my secrets.
She’d never do anything to let me down.
Would she?

This dark, gripping psychological thriller will have you holding your breath until the very last page. Fans of Behind Closed DoorsSometimes I Lie, and The Girl on the Train will be captivated.



My Thoughts

5 Perfect Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

“I lie to myself all The time. But I never believe me.“


This book was quite the ride! Two unreliable narrators for the price of one, got to love that! Barbara Copperthwaite how in the world do you come up with this stuff, this was crazy! Also how long did it take you to learn to spell that last name? that last name is crazy long! Do you ever look at somebody’s last name and think… thank goodness I did not need to learn to spell that in kindergarten… my last name has a total of four letters so I was lucky! Nobody can pronounce it, but it’s easy to spell… but I digress….

Alex and Carrie met at a support group… Alex has reached rock bottom her husband and children want nothing to do with her, and she has developed adult anorexia… Carrie has terminal cancer… Alex and Carrie form a bond a tight friendship… they rely on each other… they need each other… and they trust each other implicitly… sounds lovely, right? The problem… both Alex and Carrie have a little problem with telling the truth…. this is the true brilliance of this book… I did not believe a single word that came out of either of these girls mouths…. and I thoroughly enjoyed trying to unravel the puzzle of what was true and what was a lie….

This was a book that had you second-guessing everything… finding suspicion in everything… there were twists and turns and just when you thought you had it all figured out… not so fast… BAM that final twist!

Absolutely recommend to fans of a twisty psychological thriller with two seriously unreliable narrators🤥🤥

About the Author

Barbara is the Amazon and USA Today bestselling author of psychological thrillers INVISIBLE, FLOWERS FOR THE DEAD, THE DARKEST LIES, and HER LAST SECRET. Her latest book is THE PERFECT FRIEND.

More importantly, she loves cakes, wildlife photography and, last but definitely not least, her two dogs, Scamp and Buddy (who force her to throw tennis balls for them for hours).

Having spent over twenty years as a national newspaper and magazine journalist, Barbara has interviewed the real victims of crime – and also those who have carried those crimes out. She is fascinated by creating realistic, complex characters, and taking them apart before the readers’ eyes in order to discover just how much it takes to push a person over a line.

When not writing feverishly, she is often found hiding behind a camera, taking wildlife photographs.
