Keep Your Friends Close
From breakout thriller writer Paula Daly, Keep Your Friends Close is a riveting and electrifying story of a husband and wife and the devious best friend who comes between them.
Natty and Sean Wainwright have a rock-solid marriage—with two daughters, a successful business, and a beautiful house, they are a model family. When their younger daughter falls ill on an overseas school trip, Natty rushes to her side. Luckily, Natty’s best friend from college, Eve Dalladay, is visiting and offers to stay with Sean to lend a hand in the Wainwright household. But Natty returns home to find that Eve has taken to family life a little too well: Sean has fallen in love with her. With no choice but to put on a brave face, Natty attempts to start anew—yet no matter how hard she tries to set herself upright, Eve is there to knock her down again. Then Natty receives a mysterious note that says Eve has done this before—more than once—and the consequences were fatal. On a mission to reveal Eve as a vindictive serial mistress, Natty must navigate through a treacherous maze of secrets and lies that threatens her life and the safety of her loved ones.
I read this author's first book, Just What Kind of Mother Are You?. It was fine. what drew me to this one was the book cover, the book summary, and again the fact that the prior novel was fine. I have to say this book was by far way better then the prior one. If you are wanting to know what this author is like then check out this book. I could not stop reading this book. Although to be honest, I thought that Sean was a douche and thus did not feel that sorry for Natty. I thought she could do way better than Sean.
This book had a little feel of Fatal Attraction with Eve being Glenn Close. However Glenn was way more evil then Eve. I was not expecting the twist with Natty's past. That just added an extra level to the story. By the end I was on Natty's die all the way. The ending was the perfect ending to this story.
