Publisher's Summary

Two best friends. One missed chance. And a night that changes everything.         

Eve, Justin, Susie and Ed have been friends since they were 18. Now in their 30s, the four are still as close as ever, Thursday pub quiz night is still sacred and Eve is still secretly in love with Ed.

Maybe Eve should have moved on by now, but she can’t stop thinking about what could have been. And she knows Ed sometimes thinks about it, too.

Then one night, in an instant, all their lives change forever. And, as Eve learns she didn’t know her friends as well as she thought, she also discovers she isn’t the only person keeping secrets....

Brilliantly written

Mhairi is so good with words. The first half of the book is heavy and hard to swallow, but worth it. A very well written and interesting story.

All heart

Beautiful story. Be warned though there is slightly big part about loosing a loved one which can be hard to deal with especially if you have been through it recently.

Loved the conclusion

I didn't think much of the main characters in the beginning and almost gave up and returned the book but one I pushed past that because I like this author and I loved the ending. It was a little predictable, but was nevertheless an enjoyable read.

Enjoyable read but not my favourite from Mhairi

I enjoy Mhairi's witty writing however I felt the main characters lacked the chemistry required to pull this storyline off. It fell flat for me but still entertaining enough to finish.

Dreary and miserable

If you want to be depressed for a few hours knock yourself out. No reality or joy.

Just wonderful!

I loved this story. The characters have such depth and the way Mhairi McFarlane writes makes you feel everything along side them. I couldn't stop listening & now the story has ended, my heart feels heavy that I'm no longer a part of their lives.

Nice story if you want a mild story of love

I must say I'm a little disappointed with this book. I really like most of Mhairi McFarlane books so maybe just didn't reach the expectations I had. It's a story that has a mildly interesting story of love if you can hold on the first 16 chapters of 46, in which mainly the main female character drowns and whains a little too much in her depression in not such an introspective way. The love story and turns that develop during the story between her friends and new acquaintances are quite nice and real yet they lack a little of fluidity of the story. I don't know if it's because apart from the part of her friend's loss there really isn't more to the story or the main character. The idea was good though I can't take the impression is quite mild.

Terrible narration

I believe there is a good story in there, but narration is so poor, I simply can’t continue. I have no idea what character is what, manic narration poorly delivered.

Beautifully written but far too depressing.

The blurb gives no indication of quite how upsetting parts of this book are. The writing is good, but I don't think I can finish it, it's too depressing.

Well-written but not for me

Well-written and great narration but I’ve 7 hours left and I find it quite depressing so I returned it... 😔

Loved it

I loved the detail of this book. It is full of depth and switches nicely between being horrendously sad but also happy and hopeful. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Not one of her best

Almost gave up on this but persevered and it gradually improved. Not one of her best though. The fathers dementia storyline for example seemed a bit far fetched and not very credible. Entertaining enough and it passed the time I’ll leave it at that.

Never fails

Am working my way through the Mhairi collection as each book as yet to fail!

Always superb writing, gritty storyline and hilarious laughs entwined. Big fan of lead characters always being northern.

Loving her work, keep them coming!

Tragically beautiful

This is a really lovely story, but it’s not what you think at all.
It’s so sad to begin with, but it takes you on a real journey. I couldn’t predict what was going to happen from the start like most easygoing chick lit, and even once you can see how it might play out, it still keeps you guessing a bit longer.
4 stars because it took me a while to get into the plot. It wasn’t until around chapter 24 that I finally stopped just plodding through because I felt I should stick with it, and actually began to enjoy listening to it.
I liked the narrator (probably because I’m northern). Plenty of reviews say they found the narration difficult but it didn’t ruin it for me. Dropped a star because occasionally I struggled to work out which character was speaking, and also the way she said ‘yes’ annoyed me a little.
If you stick with it, the end makes up for the sadness and slow start. I think it’s one I’d enjoy much more a second time round.

Loved this book.
It had: Humour, tragedy, drama, and love.
Maya Saroya’s narration was great, and very entertaining.
