Clementine and Erica have been friends since primary school but their relationship is complicated and at times tense. Their respective husbands Sam and Oliver are very different but certainly compliment their wives. Clementine and Sam are juggling careers as well as two young girls while Erica and Oliver seem to be happy with just each other.
An afternoon tea at Erica and Oliver’s house has been hijacked by their neighbour Vid and his wife Tiffany. Vid is outgoing and friendly and loves entertaining people so he invites them over for a BBQ. The story switches between the present day and the day of the BBQ, which occurred a few weeks prior. Slowly we learn of the incident that happens at the BBQ which changes everyone. But the story doesn’t just stop there as Moriarty cleverly explores the consequences. An engaging read you won’t be able to put down.
