This is a short story! Not just a short story, but, all of 84 pages of nonsense! The story was silly, the characters even sillier. The best friend is a negative, nasty, insulting woman, with no redeeming social values. I got this book for free, years ago. Don't bother!

Years ago, when I was a Girl Scout, both as a girl and, later, as a troop leader, one of my very favorite campfire songs was "The Ash Grove". Since that song is pretty much the catalyst for everything that happens in this story, I was completely hooked from the beginning. Unfortunately, it took no time at all for me to recognize that Chloe is essentially a stalker and, perhaps worse, TSTL. Make no mistake, Ms. Hannah has crafted a terrific story full of questions and suspense and interesting characters. It's a good thing because, otherwise, I might have closed the book right when Chloe signed a note to a near-stranger "Lots of love". What woman in her right mind does that? If I hadn't closed it then, I would have when she muses about how he'd be so hurt at what someone else said about him. Yes, she's got the obsessive gene for sure. When Tom mentions diamonds in a joking manner, Chloe immediately jumps to a ridiculous assumption. What is wrong with this besotted woman? Wait...could it be that Chloe and Tom are two peas in the proverbial pod? And then it all goes upside down. One of Sophie Hannah's many talents is that she can keep me reading even when I'm sure I no longer want to. Mind you, I still think Chloe is more than a little off the rails but, still and all, I'm not the least bit sorry I continued on, if only because I had the chance to once again see Simon Waterhouse and Charlie Zailer, soon to be starring in their own book, Woman with a Secret, coming in August.
