Keep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly
  

Lovereading view...

A tale of a complicated relationship, a cunning predator and fatal repercussions. It is very good. Nat and Sean are solidly married but an old university friend of Nat’s upsets the equilibrium and now both women seem to become a little unbalanced as each subtly (sometimes blatantly) fights for ‘their’ man. It’s a much trodden path in fiction which Paula Daly strides along brilliantly. Highly enjoyable, as was her first, Just What Kind of Mother Are You? ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Shortlisted for the CWA Goldsboro Gold Dagger - Crime Novel of the Year 2014.

If you like Paula Daly you might also like to read books by Samantha Hayes, Liane Moriarty and Sanjida Kay.

Synopsis

Keep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly

Fiendishly addictive . (Guardian). Your best friend isn't who you think she is. You've been friends since university, when you became the people you are today. You don't see each other enough but when you do it's as if you've never been apart. She's one of the family. You would trust her with your life, your children, your husband. And when your daughter is rushed to hospital, you're grateful that she's stepping in at home, looking after things. But your best friend isn't who you think she is. You're about to find out just how wrong you were.
