My Review:

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Egmont Publishing and NetGalley*

 3/5 stars

 

June is devastated when she finds out that Delia, an old friend that she had drifted apart from, committed suicide.
Then Delia's ex-boyfriend tells June that Delia was murdered.
Is he right?
Who would want to kill Delia?


I have mixed feelings about this book.
On the one hand it was fast paced in places with twists and turns, some of which I saw coming but some I didn't.
June was likeable and I felt sorry for her but I didn't like Delia at all - she was self-destructive and selfish.
The plot was good until halfway through the book where it slowed down a lot. Not much seemed to happen after this point.
There were a lot of adult themes - swearing, sex, drugs and murder.
I'm a bit confused about the ending as it's quite abrupt.


Overall this was an enjoyable read.
