Publisher's Summary

A dark secret and a deadly score to settle.

In 1997 teenager Sophie White and her three girlfriends decide they want to lose their virginity before summer is over.

Roping in her childhood buddy Gareth and his mates, Sophie holds a party to get the deed over and done with, but the night doesn’t end as planned. 

Twenty years later, the group are brought back together when Gareth is killed in a car accident and Sophie begins receiving threatening messages. It seems the party wasn’t as innocent as everyone thought, and now someone wants payback.

A gripping, highly addictive game of cat and mouse where the past comes back with vengeance. Perfect for the fans of Kimberley Chambers, Emma Tallon and Jessie Keane.

Gripping, very very addictive!!

Firstly, I finished this book in 48 hours so prepare to be addicted! The story unfolds and very cleverly twists and turns and just as you think you know how it will play out, it changes and you’re sent off on another thought!

I found myself thinking back to certain characters and their entrances into the story to determine if I thought they were responsible! Ha ha I felt like Jessica Fletcher!

I love Gemma’s no-nonsense style and lack of flowery-ness. She gets to the point but in a very descriptive way so that you get a great vision in your head- and Georgia Maguire narrated the book perfectly. She has a voice that splits into characters so effortlessly.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I would highly recommend this to anyone who’s looking for a book to enthral and captivate you!!
