Goodreads:  How well do you really know your best friend?

Kat Grant and Alice Campbell have a friendship forged in shared confidences and long lunches lubricated by expensive wine. Though they’re very different women—the artsy socialite and the struggling suburbanite—they’re each other’s rocks. But even rocks crumble under pressure. Like when Kat’s financier husband, Howard, plunges to his death from the second-floor balcony of their South Florida mansion.

Howard was a jerk, a drunk, a bully and, police say, a murder victim. The questions begin piling up. Like why Kat has suddenly gone dark: no calls, no texts and no chance her wealthy family will let Alice see her. Why investigators are looking so hard in Alice’s direction. Who stands to get hurt next. And who is the cool liar—the masterful manipulator behind it all.

Kritters Thoughts:   Do you have a best friend?  Do you tell them EVERYTHING?  Do you always tell them the truth?  Kat and Alice have been best friends for a few years and when a police officer ends up on the front door or Alice's home, she is left wondering if she really knew all that went on with her best friend Kat.  

I absolutely adored this book.  It was the perfect mixture of mystery/thriller and women's fiction.  The plot worked so well and the book was put together so well, I loved how it switched back from the current investigation to the past where the relationship was coming together.  And the characters.  I don't want to give too much away, but the way they developed and the journey they went on was amazing.  It just did everything right!  

This was my first Margot Hunt read and because of how much I loved this one, it will most definitely not be my last!  If you are hesitant to read the mystery/thriller genre, I would challenge you to read this one, it had just the right amount of eeriness mixed with great plot and characters.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
