When is a lie a lifeline? To Tori lies are everything.
ZOE wants to end her life. But she can’t just leave a note. She needs to say goodbye to boyfriend JAMES and best friend ALISON.
TORI is waiting in the wings to fill the space ZOE will leave behind, wanting to claim both James and Alison for herself.
But with ZOE still alive and Alison’s childhood friend RUBY now on the scene vying to fill the gap, TORI realises she has her work cut out.
Just what lengths is TORI willing to go to in order to claim Alison and James for herself?

I have read a previous book by this author and I really enjoyed her style of writing so I was delighted to be able to review this book. I do think to get the best out of this book you do need to have read the previous one – The Second Cup.
The story is well written and it is a tough storyline but I think the author has handled it with the care needed and it will raise the awareness of what is sadly considered a taboo topic for some. Sadly I didn’t feel any connection to the characters and that did affect my enjoyment of the story.
3.5 stars from me for this one rounded up to 4 stars for Goodreads and Amazon – looking forward to what she releases next!
