Author Jane Fallon
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review
Tamsin and Michelle have been inseparable since childhood. Even now they spend all their time together, along with Patrick, Michelle’s handsome husband.
Except Tamsin’s brilliant assistant Bea (without whom Tamsin’s life would fall apart) has heard a nasty rumour that Patrick is playing away. Determined to uncover the truth, Tamsin devises a honey-trap to test his resolve, using Bea as bait. But she never counted on Bea having her own agenda . . .
Struggling to untangle the web of deceit, Patrick seems to be constantly one step ahead. Can Tamsin reveal the truth to Michelle without ruining everyone’s life along the way?
What did I think?
This is the first book that I have read by Jane Fallon and I’m starting to kick myself for not discovering her sooner! I literally could not put Strictly Between Us down and had to fight off sleep so I could read as much as possible.
Fallon has written an incredibly difficult story that catches you off-guard and supporting characters you probably shouldn’t. Not only that, but she managed to completely blind-side me at one point because I genuinely did not expect her to take the book in the direction it went. While there isn’t too many twists in the book after the first half is out of the way, Fallon keeps you wanting more which is a huge feat to overcome because with few twists towards the end of the book is sometimes a risk.
Fallon has written moments that make you laugh out loud and sigh in despair. She is a talented writer, and like I said earlier I cannot believe I have only just discovered her! The emotions I felt while reading this were so ranged and something I really didn’t expect.
I genuinely loved ‘Strictly Between Us’ and felt that the story-line, whilst not the most original out there, is one to keep you wanting more throughout. I honestly recommend anyone to pre-order this book and get it in your life as soon as possible (you don’t have long to wait – only 5 days until it’s out!)
