Tis the season of easy-beach reads. Apart from the whole reading on a beach bit. My marathon is on Sunday, so I am currently exercising a lot less and have a lot more free time. I’ve missed reading, a lot. So decided it was a perfect time to pick up some new books. The Girlfriend was the perfect easy thriller.
Throughout the book, I wasn’t sure who to trust, Cherry the girlfriend or Laura the mother. The plot itself was just a bit too far-fetched, nobody would lie to the extent Laura did. Nor would anyone be quite as manipulative as Cherry seemingly was. However, I admired Cherry’s determination for all that she wanted to better herself. It was definitely a read in one sitting kind of book, so perfect for a beach read. I am now terrified of sub-terrine swimming pools and dens with glass roofs!
