Four friends continue their high school friendship for twenty years. But this year is different; at a girl's getaway, a game of truth or dare goes dreadfully wrong when one member proposes each write a letter with something that the others don't know about them. 4 friends, but 5 letters appear, the fifth a vitriolic attack on un-named member of the group. Kept me reading, but failed to form any real connection with the characters.

Was a good book with a great plot but was somewhat spoilt by crass profanity and the author did also make an inconsistent error. She claimed Eden's house was a "single-storey red-brick home" on page 222 and then on page 299 Eden's husband Ben was bringing her back "downstairs" after her shower. If you are going to be a successful writer you need to keep your story consistent and factual.
It may be an innocuous mistake but an author can often lose credibility if they can't even keep something as basic as a house the right storey!

An interesting story-line, but too much drama and foul language.

Really light, easy read. If you're looking for a summer beach book...
