The old Victorian pier was once a thing of beauty. It's also where twenty-one-year-old Sophie Collier vanished eighteen years ago. Francesca has spent the last twenty years haunted by the disappearance of her best friend. But when she receives a phone call from Sophie's brother saying that a body has been found, she knows she can't keep hiding from what happened. With her own secrets to keep, Francesca doesn't relish the idea of digging up the past or returning to Oldcliffe. But it is time to go back to where she grew up, and it looks like she isn't the only one there hiding truths.

Very easy read. Started off a tad slow. I couldn’t figure out how the author was going to tie everything together. I thought the end was perfect and I didn’t see it coming, it was one of those “OMG” moments. I really enjoyed this book.

I lost respect for this book early on. Read in some ways more like a tacky romance novel and the double narration got wearing after a while. I agree that the suspense is real, but felt the ending was flat. Don't bother.

Wow.... this was a real page-turner! Two girls who grow up as best friends, but there are secrets between them. Someone knows everything, but who? To be honest, I can't write too much about this novel for fear of giving it away, but I found it impossible to second-guess and figure out who did what to whom. Excellent read!
