I have read Rebecca Reid’s first novel, ‘Perfect Liars’ and it is as good as, ‘Truth Hurts’ and a great read. This story had everything for me and the ending was exactly ‘up-my-street’.
Poppy, a nanny to a rich, rather obnoxious couple with three children, is fired whilst they are all on holiday in Ibiza. She is made to leave in the middle of the night and takes the couple’s car and a pair of expensive shoes. Sitting at a cafe spending her last few Euros on a couple of beers she meets Drew. He’s a few years older, appears wealthy and offers her a bed for the night, with no strings. Is this all too good to be true?
The couple have a whirlwind romance, fall in love and marry within a month. There is a before and after narrative and we soon learn that they both have secrets from the past but they make a pact not to discuss anything prior to their meeting and to live in the present.
Once the holiday is over Drew and Poppy return to England and a stunning house, which Drew has bought as a wedding gift. Secrets begin to surface one by one and Poppy arranges for her best friend, Gina, to come and live with them to help with the house decorating etc.
Many thanks to NetGalley, Random House UK, Transworld Publishers, Corgi and Rebecca Reid for my ARC in return for my honest review.
This is a must read, especially if you like a twisted, dark ending. Highly recommended.
