March 2017 Debut of the Month. A wonderfully expressive, dramatic, and tense tale, striking at the heart of friendship and love. Four best friends who have known each other since school, have begun to drift apart after jobs, husbands and children changed their lives. Joni wants them to reconnect, however secrets and lies spill out into the open while on their annual holiday, the biggest secrets of all however remain just out of reach. Nicola Moriarty is an Australian author (and the sister of Liane Moriarty), this is her UK debut. The suspense simmers along quite nicely as information from an unknown source is revealed during the mayhem of the trip. At each switch of the story, my thoughts zigzagged to and fro, searching for answers. I could hardly catch my breath as the story skyrocketed towards it’s conclusion, ensuring ‘The Fifth Letter’ is a thoroughly entertaining and captivating read. ~ Liz Robinson
