Publisher's Summary

Three friends, 30 years of shared secrets, one impulsive gesture...and a terrible accident. When friendship goes bad, someone has to pay. 

For fans of Liane Moriarty and Robyn Harding.

It's New Year's Eve. Three 30-something women - Aimee, Melinda, and Lou - best friends for decades, let off sky lanterns filled with resolutions: for meaning, for freedom, for money. As the glowing paper bags float away, there's a bright flare in the distance. It could be a sign of luck - or the start of a complete nightmare that will upend their friendships, families, and careers. 

The day after their ceremony, the newspapers report a small plane crash - two victims pulled from the wreckage, one a young boy. Were they responsible? Aimee thinks they are, Melinda won't accept it, and Lou has problems of her own. It's a toxic recipe for guilt trips, shame, obsession, blackmail, and power games. 

They're not bad people. But desperate times call for desperate measures.

REALLY ENJOYABLE

I loved this book. I’m not sure if it’s because I just love the way Caroline Lee narrates, but this book had me from the getgo. I also love every single one of Liane Moriarty books and this read was definitely along the same lines. Didn’t want the book to end and I’ll probably listen again

Long and generic

I was not a fan of this book. So many old fashioned stereotypes and the assumption that women can either be mothers or successful.
