Loved the book!! I couldn't wait to read this because I loved I Wanted to Tell You. The title was perfect because all four of the friends had a secret that they were keeping hidden. Jess's secret was a mystery until the end. but it was easy to figure out. I loved everything about the book- the characters, story and writing style. I enjoyed getting to know Jess, Emily, Amanda and Lolly. After twenty years, they were able to pick up right where they left off. Amanda and her occupation was quite a story. It's pretty hard to tell people the truth about what you do for a living without the judgement. I never put two and two together until Amanda meets the girls for drinks and catches up about work, children and husbands. For some reason I really loved Pete. He seemed like such a good guy. He made some mistakes in his younger years with his daughter and Amanda, but is trying to make it better. He has a great relationship with Amanda. He never judged her and joked about what he could get for a ten pound note. I felt the saddest for Lolly, but in the end I think she was the strongest one out of the bunch. I hated that the book ended. I needed another chapter or two. I definitely recommend the book. It's about friendships, relationships, marriage, family and and following your own dreams. I can't wait to read more from the author. I loved the cover of the book. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bookouture through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

3.5 Stars 3.5 Stars This book started a little slow for me, but by the halfway point I was captivated with this story and the fierce bond the women had with one another. I was equally captured by the conflict between them. I had so many questions, questions that were slowly answered throughout the novel and in just the right time. This book shows how even though we can have the fiercest of bonds with someone, guilt can bring us to doubt, to point fingers, to desperately want logical explanations to the extent to which we would throw someone under the bus to get them, no matter how much we love that person. The plot is full of rich characters. They are all over the place with their decisions and behaviour. These women have so many flaws and issues and secrets. Layer after layer is uncovered, and you never expect what lies underneath or why they do what they do. I also loved the ending, as each woman becomes a stronger version of herself and three of the four manage it without a man. I don’t know how Anna Mansell does it – the characters have so much going on, so much happening behind the scenes, and the plot is intricate, with surprise twists and the focus and mistrust constantly shifting. But everything makes sense and the pace is perfect. The story just flows along. You are drawn in chapter after chapter until you can’t put it down and end up finishing it in a day like I did.
