Publisher's Summary

They called them the Orchid Girls. Grace. Molly. Charlotte.

One of them is in love. One of them is a liar. One of them is dead.

On a jagged Dorset cliff, wind whipping their hair, waves crashing on the rocks below, three friends became two when Charlotte’s body was pulled out of the sea.

Fifteen years later Grace and Molly are worlds apart. Grace has a glittering career and a loving husband. Molly is a lonely, unemployed alcoholic. Grace has everything to lose. Molly has nothing.

They have moved on from the tragic accident that shadowed their childhood. But somewhere lies a photograph waiting to be unearthed - waiting to reveal a secret one of the Orchid Girls is desperate to keep hidden....

The Orchid Girls is a breathless, gripping and twisty story of love, obsession and dark, shocking secrets. For fans of K. L. Slater, The Wife Between Us and The Girl on the Train.

Muddy

This was an ok book, but, listening to it via audiobook was quite confusing. During the first part it was hard to tell who was saying what, maybe that was the author trying to build tempo. I don’t know. I was determined to finish this book, can’t really say I was glad I did. Does not live up to the previous reviews. Do not recommend.

The Orchid Girls

This Audio Book was very well narrated however very hard to keep my attention. The plot does not unfold until the very end and therefore it is as if you can skip the entire middle rambling portion. It lacked depth and clarity. A three star rating is really pushing it however the ending was excellent.

Couldn't get through it

I didn't care for the subject matter. As soon as it became clear I decided against finishing it. **Spoiler alert*** The two main characters are lesbian lovers.

They should have the decency to mention that in the synopsis to avoid wasting the readers time. Good thing they refunded my credit.

The Narration is good but it’s another ‘good grief’ story

I wouldn’t bother. It’s ok if you’re happy with a mediocre listen but it’s too long and the story is pretty dreadful. The narration’s ok though.

Good story but lacked realism.<br />

Had the potential to be a fantastic read but lacked realism in the way people in "Relationships" interact. In this day and age love scenes don't start with a look and a button being undone followed by "afterwards they looked into each others eyes and got dressed", I am not saying go into Graphic Detail but it was a bit like going up in a roller coaster, getting to the top and.... No big plunging "all arms in the air and screams" just a message to "Wait for your safety harness to be undone and leave quietly and in an orderly fashion to Your left. Shame, because the plot was very good.
