Publisher's Summary

Two friends go on holiday. Only one comes back.

If you loved The Holiday, get ready for your new obsession....

Orla and Kate have been best friends forever. Together they’ve faced it all - be it Orla’s struggles as a new mother or Kate’s messy divorce. And whatever else happens in their lives, they can always look forward to their annual weekend away.

This year, they’re off to Lisbon: the perfect flat, the perfect view, the perfect itinerary. And what better way to kick things off in style than with the perfect night out?

But when Orla wakes up the next morning, Kate is gone. Brushed off by the police and with only a fuzzy memory of the night’s events, Orla is her friend’s only hope. As she frantically retraces their steps, Orla makes a series of shattering discoveries that threaten everything she holds dear. Because while Lisbon holds the secret of what happened that night, the truth may lie closer to home....

A twisty holiday listen for fans of The Holiday and Date Night.

No no no

Ok I tried. I promise I did but once the girl got kidnapped and the other girl whinged and moaned and wondered what she should do I gave up and sent it back. Awful.

Don’t bother

I got this book because I liked Friends Like These by the same author, however I was not impressed by this one. It was pretty boring. If you skip this you you really aren’t missing anything.

Couldn’t stop listening 🤗😁

First of all the narrator was AMAZING!!!!👏🏽💯💯 she was SO good and made the story even better because of how well she done accents and male voices, brilliant and she deserves a huge well done!💯👏🏽😁 this is the kind of story line i LOVE so i was hooked from start to finish, well i did kind of lose a bit interest near the end but i did keep going as i had to know how it all worked out??? I do wish I hadn’t read the other review someone left as they spoiled it with what they said☹️ so if you haven’t read other comments then becareful as it spoils it slightly ☹️ but I REALLY enjoyed this so much and like i said i was REALLY REALLY hooked with this book and i def recommend this for sure! Loved the story line, narrator was AMAZING and I actually visualised what the place was like, the rooms, scenery everything! So well done to the author AND the narrator for being able to get you actually visualising everything... right down to what EVERY room was like🤔😁👍🏽👏🏽 thank you audible I SERIOUSLY couldn’t live without it now!! It’s BRILLIANT, i will ALWAYS be an audible member!!💯👍🏽 thank you to all for another FABULOUS book! 😁💯👏🏽❤️Xxxxxxxxxx

Too long

I quite enjoyed this book up to a point. However it went on too long with too many unlikely scenarios. Helpful taxi driver, weird landlord, incompetent police. I could go on but I wanted it to end long before it did. I was as exhausted as the ‘heroine’
