Four suburban mothers and friends conspire to cover up a deadly crime in this heart-stopping novel of suspense in the tradition of Lisa Scottoline and Lisa Unger.
Alison, Julie, Sarah, Heather. Four friends living the suburban ideal. Their jobs are steady, their kids are healthy. They’re as beautiful as their houses. But each of them has a dirty little secret, and hidden behind the veneer of their perfect lives is a crime and a mystery that will consume them all.
Everything starts to unravel when Alison spots a nasty bruise on Heather’s wrist. She shares her suspicions with Julie and Sarah, compelling all three to investigate what looks like an increasingly violent marriage. As mysterious injuries and erratic behavior mount, Heather can no longer deny the abuse, but she refuses to leave her husband. Desperate to save her, Alison and the others dread the phone call telling them that she’s been killed. But when that call finally comes, it’s not Heather who’s dead. In a moment they’ll come to regret, the women must decide what lengths they’ll go to in order to help a friend.
Just Between Us is a thrilling glimpse into the underbelly of suburbia, where not all neighbors can be trusted, and even the closest friends keep dangerous secrets. You never really know what goes on in another person’s mind, or in their marriage.
Man, this book was intense! You could really feel the tension and the suspense all the way from beginning to end with this read! I was excited when the publishers granted my wish for this title but was even more excited with the results.
This book takes you on a wild ride of 4 different ladies’ thoughts and psyches and the result was quite chilling! This book will make you question what people really do think about you, when they say another thing!
The reason I am not giving this book 5 Stars is because at times it was very hard for me, personally, to keep up with everything. This story is told from all four of the women’s narratives and maybe I am just a bit slow (hehe) but I had difficulty keeping up at times.
Overall, this was one fantastic read that I would recommend to someone who is looking for a great psychological drama novel!
