Book of the Month: May

Keep Your Friends Close
Paula Daly
Natty and Sean Wainwright are happily married. Rock solid in fact. So when Natty's oldest friend, Eve Dalladay, appears - just as their daughter collapses on a school trip in France - Natty has no qualms about leaving Eve with Sean to help out at home.

Two weeks later and Natty finds Eve has slotted into family life too well. Natty's husband has fallen in love with Eve. He's sorry, he tells her, but their marriage is over.

With no option but to put a brave face on things for the sake of the children, Natty embarks on building a new life for herself.

And then she receives the note.

Eve has done this before, more than once, and with fatal consequences...

After reading and enjoying Paula Daly's debut novel, Just What Kind of Mother Are You? last year, I was eagerly awaiting the release of Keep Your Friends Close and it was definitely worth the wait. I loved the book and devoured it within a couple of days, hooked on Natty's tale as she tried to claw back the life stolen by Eve. I loved every page, particularly the ending as I thought it was brilliant. I'm very much looking forward to the future releases from Paula Daly!
My full review of Keep Your Friends Close will be on the blog soon.
