ABOUT NEVER HAVE I EVER
It starts as a game at a book group one night. Never Have I Ever... done something I shouldn't. But Amy Whey has done something she shouldn't. And Roux, the glamorous newcomer to Amy's suburban neighbourhood, knows exactly what that is.
Roux promises she will go away. She will take herself and her son, who is already growing dangerously close to Amy's teenage stepdaughter, and she will go. If Amy plays by her rules.
But Amy isn't prepared to lose everything she's built. She's going to fight back, and in this escalating game of cat and mouse, there can be only one winner.
I had an advance sneak-peek of Never Have I Ever in April so was already excited to read the book. And desperately wanted to be invited to Charlotte's book club. And everything commands curiosity: what is Amy's secret?
And I was not disappointed.
From the get-go I was Team Amy, and what a team to be a part of! The intricate past was so beautifully woven with the present and it was a difficult book to put down. A story about the past catching up with you. And the importance of appearances. Roux played her hand like a Bond baddie, and the game of cat and mouse was thrilling. The drama and dilemma left a cliffhanger at the end of each chapter.
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
