The Friend Kindle Edition
The chilling psychological thriller from the #1 bestselling author of I Am Watching You.
On a train with her husband, miles from home and their four-year-old son, Ben, Sophie receives a chilling phone call. Two boys are in hospital after a tragic accident. One of them is Ben.
She thought she could trust Emma, her new friend, to look after her little boy. After all, Emma’s a kindred spirit—someone Sophie was sure she could bare her soul to, despite the village rumours. But Sophie can’t shake the feeling that she’s made an unforgivable mistake and now her whole family is in danger.
Because how well does she know Emma, really? Should she have trusted her at all?
Time is running out. Powerless to help her child, still hours from home, Sophie is about to discover the truth. And her life will never be the same.

As I read these two books, especially “The Last Kiss Good Night” you could have left out or at least not given names to insignificant characters, it would be better satisfying ending. If characters in your book aren’t that important don’t give them a name, instead just say it was a person doing this or just give them a title. You bring in so many character names I didn’t know if it was going to be significant character or not, and further complicated by way you constantly jump around between too many story lines.
You are trying to create mystery and interest by method writing and you don’t need it. Just the way you write is interesting enough. Drop the method writing. You have the ability to write good like Earnest Hemingway. Remember KISS, “keep it simple stupid”. Keep it meaningful and it will be successful and enjoyable to read. Just write well without method. Remember, how you write is all you need. Forget the method of execution. If you haven’t read a good book by Earnest Hemingway read one of his good books and learn from it. In simple straight forward words Hemingway could touch your soul and shock your senses. His words, so simple, were powerful. His good books are memorable and satisfying. None difficult to follow and I never needed a flow chart to keep track of his story.
Each of these two books endings were frustrating and unsatisfying. I liked your ability to write but not your method of execution. You work too hard to create interest when your straight forward writing is what I liked. You had enough of that that carried me to the end of each book but your mythology ruined it for me. Don’t try to write a mystery or lots of twist and turns, especially with too many character stories meshed into one. This is why these two books failed for me.

The main characters were well written , came complete with flaws. Some had more than others. There were minor characters that I thought were unnecessary, the private detective, Matt, and possibly friend ,Helen.
The plot relies on a seemingly never ending train journey with flashbacks to earlier parts of the story. Mostly this works but there are so many past stories that it can be confusing. I like the author’s writing and will continue to read her work.
