Reading about Natty is exhausting, with the cleaning, fussing and worrying she is her own worst enemy. She is letting her relationship with husband Sean slide along with everything else, in order to be perfect in her life and her business of running an hotel. Then Eve visits…. and I love love love a fabulous ‘book bitch’ and Eve fills this criteria beautifully.
Keep Your Friends Close is a book that you want to race through to see what happens next. It fills you full of anxiety and intrique and most of all anticipation. I loved it. The story evolves brilliantly and is full of ‘Oh my God.. whatever next’, and when that final twist is revealed it really is an Oh My God, so cleverly and deliciously concocted it is evil at it’s finest.
Paula Daly truly is a master of writing psychological thriller fiction. It is an exquisitely satisfying read and really gets deep into your psyche. I ended up thinking which of my friends would I not trust in the same situation. It is dark and compelling,and will keep you riveted to the last page.
