Standalone Sunday

standalone-sunday

Standalone Sunday is a weekly meme hosted by  Megan @ bookslayerreads.

Standalone Sunday was created to let others know about all the standalone books you have loved, but maybe don’t get the attention they need. Megan created the banner as well and anyone joining in can use it too. She has a great blog, that’s definitely worth checking out.

My recommendation is for a book I randomly picked out at my local library back in January.

Goodreads Synopsis

What’s the worst thing your best friend could do to you?

Admittedly, it wasn’t murder. A moment’s carelessness, a tragic accident – and two children are dead. Yours.

Living in a small island community, you can’t escape the woman who destroyed your life. Each chance encounter is an agonizing reminder of what you’ve lost – your family, your future, your sanity.

How long before revenge becomes irresistible?

With no reason to go on living, why shouldn’t you turn your darkest thoughts into deeds?

So now, what’s the worst thing you can do to your best friend?

 

This gripped right from the beginning. It was one of those books that had me thinking about the plot and the characters when I wasn’t reading it, which is always a good sign. The setting in the Falkland Islands, in the South Atlantic was intriguing as I didn’t know much about it, apart from the Falklands War Conflict back in the early 1980s. The descriptions of the landscape were so vivid that I felt like I’d been living there whilst reading it.The story had such a good pace and was told from the point of view of the three main characters, this worked really well and wasn’t at all confusing. I absolutely loved this book and thoroughly recommend it if you love thrillers.
