In the quiet village of Helesbury, Miranda Wallace prides herself on being the most popular member of her small social circle; the perfect friend, the best mum – the queen bee.

Until one day, Verity arrives. Cool and indifferent, Verity is everything Miranda isn’t, but she threatens to shatter Miranda’s picture-perfect life.

Suddenly plagued with insecurities, Miranda is certain Verity is hiding something. And Miranda knows all about secrets and the damage they can cause because she’s hiding some of her own.

So when Verity threatens to reveal the truth about Miranda and destroy the perfect life she’s built, Miranda knows she has to act to protect the people she loves – even if the results are deadly.

I received a copy of this book from Boldwood Books via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

My Thoughts…

I like the immersive quality of this story and the claustrophobic setting. Miranda has secrets, but her obsession with being popular draws her into village life until she earns the title of Queen Bee, which she loves. A newcomer threatens Miranda’s status and anonymity, and it’s hard to keep secrets in a village.

Miranda isn’t likeable. Her insecurities manifest irritatingly, but her story is suspenseful with surprising twists, and it’s an absorbing read. I like the relatable characters and imaginative scenarios that make this psychological suspense resonate.
