Hello book buddies, have I got a treat for you!!
I’m so happy to bring you a review for this awesome book that will catch you by the seat of your pants, and keep you hooked until the very last page!
Why Did You Pick It Up Vicci?
I love a good thriller, especially ones that contain friends, or a group of friends, this book reminds me of a great TV series called Big Little Lies – some of you may have heard of it LOL
The story is not the same, but I love the friendships in that story too.

Amy Whey is a first time mum, living with her husband and her step daughter, who loving calls her Step-Monster.
She lives in a comfortable home in a quiet suburbia, and is a Diving Instructor, although with a new baby, she hasn’t got to dive as much as she wants for a while.
Her friends are all mums too, and she runs the neighbourhood Book-Club, and this is where our story starts.
Charlotte her best friend picks the books for the girls to read, and they meet in Amy’s basement to discuss (while having a glass of wine and a gossip)
Everything is going swimmingly, until the front door bell goes, Amy answers the door, and there stands the “new girl” glamorous Roux.
Roux is new in the neighbourhood, and has come to introduce herself and join the Book-Club, after breezing in the door (uninvited) Roux then takes over the Book-Club by basically getting everyone drunk as a skunk and playing a silly playground game Never Have I Ever, although drunk + secrets is never a good idea!
Amy is horrified at this and demands Roux leaves the party, but the fun has only just begun!!
A fantastic psychological thriller that will have you shouting WTF on many occasions, I thought my head was going to fall off as it was spun in so many different directions.
Great characters and a fantastic story, you’ll be up all night reading this one!

About The Book
It starts as a game at a book group one night. Never Have I Ever… done something I shouldn’t.
But Amy Whey has done something she shouldn’t. And Roux, the glamorous newcomer to Amy’s suburban neighbourhood, knows exactly what that is.
Roux promises she will go away. She will take herself and her son, who is already growing dangerously close to Amy’s teenage stepdaughter, and she will go. If Amy plays by her rules.
But Amy isn’t prepared to lose everything she’s built. She’s going to fight back, and in this escalating game of cat and mouse, there can be only one winner.
