If he wakes




You can always trust your best friend… can’t you?

When Rachel discovers a Twitter message arranging a romantic liaison she assumes her husband is having an affair, and follows him. What she witnesses is so much worse: a hit and run using his car.


Meanwhile, Rachel’s friend and business partner Suzie is increasingly worried about her fiance, who’s not been in touch for days. When Suzie learns of huge debts racked up in her name she fears he has run out on her, but then the threatening calls start and she thinks something terrible has happened.


Rachel and Suzie are both about to learn shocking things about the men they love, worse than they could ever imagine… Can their friendship survive?

My Review


I don't often describe a book as 'a real pageturner' but in this case it's true - I was so engrossed towards the end that I was almost late for work. There were lots of twists and turns, some of which you see coming and some that come as a real surprise. For me though, I enjoyed the relationship between the two friends, Rachel and Suzie, as they both have their lives torn apart. It was interesting to see the two threads come together quite spectacularly at the end but I'm saying no more as I don't want to spoil it. A truly engrossing read with characters that leap off the page so that you are still thinking about them weeks later.

When reading all the reviews I just can not wait to read this for myself. I adore stories of hardship and how they unfold and hopefully have a good ending.
