She’s your best friend. And your worst enemy…
Beth is a woman running from her demons. Moving to Glasgow to escape the tragedy that ended with the death of her ex-boyfriend, she’s trying to build a new life, to tentatively find new love. But her past is following her, and try as she might, she can’t shake the feeling that someone is watching her every move.
Victoria is unhappily married to Greg. On their wedding day he told her he would love her until they grew old, but now he’s becoming secretive, staying out for ‘business meetings’ and growing distant from his wife. After finding incriminating texts on his phone, Victoria contacts an old friend for support, the one person in her life that has never let her down yet.
Lydia knows she is the only one that can help Victoria. Jumping straight back into their friendship, despite the four-year absence from Victoria’s life, she vows to stop at nothing to help her get revenge. Good friends will do anything for each other, right?
But Lydia has made a new friend in Beth, and now, none of them are safe…
Three women. Three stories. One devastating secret.
An utterly gripping, dark psychological thriller with a twist that will make your jaw drop. Fans of B.A. Paris, The Wife Between Us and The Woman in the Window will be completely addicted.
From the opening of the book it drew me straight in. It promised something very dark and boy did the author deliver.
The story alternates between three women flicking between past and present. The author skilfully plays with her readers minds, feeding us bits of information and glimpses of what is to come but not just quite what and I sure was not ready for how it all comes together at the end.
Beth and Victoria are women that due to their past have issues in their present life. They are both trying to move on with their lives and overcome their past fears but as we all know, life sure does throw a curve ball and wow what a curve ball.
As the story moves a long, it just gets darker and almost eerie. I had a feeling of trepidation that I just couldn’t shift and didn’t no why. When all become clear, well you could have knocked me over with a feather. I even had to go back and read a part again as my brain couldn’t quite comprehend what I had just read as I just hadn’t seen what was before my eyes, coming.
What She Did is a dark, at times disturbing but riveting read that I couldn’t devour quick enough. It’s definitely one of those, just one more chapter kind of reads that you won’t be able to put down. The story line left me feeling like someone had walked over my grave as it certainly will give you chills. What a great novel by the author, really enjoyed it and has to be my personal favourite of her books.
My thanks to Hera Books and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
