O Try me' 'Okay' And then she looks at me curiously 'So Were you glad deep down Were you glad to be rid of her Your perfect sister Were you secretly glad when she was killed'Katherine has moved away from her shattered family to start afresh in Sydney There she keeps her head down until she is befriende Let me start by saying that I haven’t been so impressed by a book in uite a while I was lucky enough to receive a copy for review and picked it up one day last week intending to read just a few chapters Two hours later I was totally engrossed in the story and couldn’t put it down This rarely happens to me but here James has written a psychological thriller that will grab you from page one Seriously the start of the book is excellent What an openerWhen we are introduced to Katherine she has suffered a great trauma in her life and so when the beautiful and popular Alice insists on befriending her she doesn’t resist despite her reservations and the warning signs right from the start that Alice may come with than a few problems of her own Having experienced a few toxic friendships myself I found the depiction and the dynamics of their friendship fascinating and very believable Of course this is not just a friendship gone wrong This case is extreme and there are very dark elements at work here Both girls have their secrets Alice made me uncomfortable right from the start of the book I guessed her darkest secret about half way through the book and when I did I knew she would stop at nothing to get revenge on Katherine She’s unpredictable and downright scary at times This is a friendship which never sits comfortably with the reader and an ominous feeling pervades from the start of the book Alice is very menacing unhinged and some of her actions from stalking to downright horror will give you chills I read an article about this book a while back in which it was said to contain elements of Single White Female and having read it I thoroughly agreeFor me the book revolves around the concept that one bad decision can change your life cost you the thing you love the most and define you forever if you let it Katherine has the courage to overcome this while Alice doesn’t with disastrous conseuences The writing is fast paced and addictive jumping between different points in Katherine’s life Sometimes I find this style hard to follow but that didn’t happen here I was so engaged with the characters and the relationships in the book that I just wanted to find out I connected with a lot of the relationships in the book and I have to say the story evoked uite an emotional response from me I loved Robbie and Katherine’s friendship and was pleased for her when Mick and Philippa entered her life and she finally saw Alice’s true coloursI generally review books without giving spoilers but I had to try extra hard here as I know most people won’t have read the book yet and I really wouldn‘t want to spoil the surprises for anyone Overall I thought this was an excellent read I felt sad when I finished the book because even though it’s brilliantly concluded I was still left wanting I can’t wait to read the next book from Rebecca James

Beautiful Malice'Truth or dare' She asks I hesitate 'Truth' I say finally 'I can imagine one of your dares and I don't fancy running down Oxford Street naked tonight' 'Truth' Alice says slowly drawing out the vowel sound as if she's savouring the word 'Are you sure Are you sure you can be completely honest' 'I think s After the murder of her younger sister Katherine Patterson starts a new life at a new school as she attempts to escape the media her parents’ depression and her own guilt There she meets Alice and uickly begins a friendship with the clearly narcissistic sociopath Eventually she also bonds with fellow victims of Alice’s rancorous personality finding love and peace despite her friend’s anticsFor the entire first half of this book I felt dragged through a world of mostly text book one dimensional characters With the second half offering slight surprises here and there I was only mildly interested enough to keep reading The deaths were dull and unimaginative The constant time jumping likely written to arouse suspense and curiosity left me in a state of annoyance and frustration as it completely disrupted the flow of what from my understanding was meant to be a thriller uite honestly the only thrill I got was in the anti climactic end as Katherine got her chance at what I stretch to call a happily ever after The only character who held an inkling of appeal to me was Robbie a young man who has lost his mother and who finds no support or comfort from his emotionally wrecked father One who is willing to succumb to the poison that is Alice so as to feel even an iota of happiness that she able to give him despite the destruction she brings to his heart and mindWon through the Goodreads first reads giveaway
