Description

"No list of thrillers is complete without Robyn Harding," proclaims Real Simple. Now the USA TODAY bestselling author of The Party delivers a riveting tale about the toxic relationship between two couples after a night of sexual shenanigans, and the manipulative teenager with an explosive secret at the center of it all.

Low Morrison is not your average teen. You could blame her hippie parents or her looming height or her dreary, isolated hometown on an island in the Pacific Northwest. But whatever the reason, Low just doesn't fit in—and neither does Freya, an ethereal beauty and once-famous social media influencer who now owns the local pottery studio.

After signing up for a class, Low quickly falls under Freya's spell. And Freya, buoyed by Low's adoration, is compelled to share her darkest secrets and deepest desires. Finally, both feel a sense of belonging...that is, until Jamie walks through the studio door. Desperate for a baby, she and her husband have moved to the island hoping that the healthy environment will result in a pregnancy. Freya and Jamie become fast friends, as do their husbands, leaving Low alone once again.

Then one night, after a boozy dinner party, Freya suggests swapping partners. It should have been a harmless fling between consenting adults, one night of debauchery that they would put behind them, but instead, it upends their lives. And provides Low the perfect opportunity to unleash her growing resentment.

Robyn Harding brings her acclaimed storytelling, lauded as "fast-paced, thrilling, gut-wrenching" by Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six, to this dark and suspenseful thriller for fans of Megan Miranda and Lisa Jewell.

    I love this genre so much and I have a lot of opinion about it. Unfortunately this book did not hit the right notes for me. It became a little bit boring towards the end, because I knew where it was heading already. Predictable.
  • (3/5)
    Sorry for any spoilers but what I don't get is why they convince a certain character something never happened, then gaslight that character into believing it was their fault and their idea. It makes no sense why they pretend the event didn't happen the day after and let them walk around feeling like a crazy person for no real reason or motive

    I saw a review that said they read it in a day and I didn't believe it till I read it within a day also. Very entertaining!

    Read it in a day, interesting enough if not a bit predictable.

    I really did enjoy this book, it kept my attention from beginning to end, although the end was pretty predictable, it was still enjoyable nonetheless.
  • (5/5)
    This book is beautifully read and i really enjoyed listening to it. The story draws you in immediately... transporting you into the world of the characters whose description is so vivid. the story touches on so many issues we are facing today concerning relationships and the stress of conforming to societal expectations.

    Such a great read. Definitely didn’t see the ending coming. I binged it all in a day. Give it a chance if you’re curious, you won’t be disappointed.

    This was a terrible book. I feel like the author was reaching too hard into minority identities and it felt clunky and unnatural. The whole story was just bad. My 16 queer daughter and I listened to it together, she hated it just as much a I did. Don't try so hard next time.

    Really this book.
    Characters were well thought through, the plot had plenty of action and emotional ups and downs to keep you hooked.

    Second book read and loved by this author, can’t wait for the next one ?
