Secrets And Lies
The Wild Girls by Phoebe Morgan is a compulsive psychological suspense that I just could not put down and I read it in just one sitting.
The reader is aware from the start that something has happened in the past to destroy a close friendship of four girls. As the novel begins, the four friends are about to embark on a holiday to rekindle their friendship. It is a dream scenario but the nightmare is just beginning.
The novel is written from the point of view of the four individuals and has two time periods – ‘now’ and ‘before.’ As the story progresses the reader tries to join the dots – and we all know how good I am at that, I failed (again!)
As the action unfolds, the atmosphere becomes creepier. Suspicion and suspense are all around. The reader realises everyone is hiding something and all is not as it seems.
There are some deep obsessions within the tale. When love is an obsession it can easily become twisted. The lines blur between fact and fiction – whose version will you believe?
The Wild Girls was a truly marvellous read. Phoebe Morgan is the master of her craft and I cannot wait for more from her.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
