From the bestselling author of The Good Neighbor comes a gripping thriller about an engagement party gone fatally awry.

Imagine your closest friend utterly betraying you. Years later, when she seeks forgiveness, you invite her to your engagement party as a gesture of reconciliation. But seething hostilities rise to the surface, ruining everyone’s evening. After an awful night, your friend’s battered, lifeless body is found at the bottom of a rocky cliff.

Newly engaged Marissa Parlette is living this nightmare. She should be celebrating her upcoming wedding, but she can’t shake the image of her friend lying dead on the beach. Did she fall? Was she pushed? Or did she take a purposeful step into darkness? Desperate for answers, Marissa digs deep into the events of the party. But what she remembers happening after nightfall now carries sinister implications: the ugly sniping, the clandestine meetings, the drunken flirtations. The more she investigates, the more she questions everything she thought she knew about her friends, the man she once trusted, and even herself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gripping thriller This book was the first I have read by author A.J. Banner and I was impressed. This was a fabulous book from beginning to end, and it had me turning the pages over and over to read on as I was wanting to find out what would happen next the entire way throughout this book. The story follows Marissa Parlette and her recent engagement to fiance Nathan Black. They are hosting a dinner party at Nathan’s house. In attendance are married couple Jensen and Lauren, Nathan’s daughter Anna from a previous marriage, and Nathan’s brother Keith and his wife Hedra. It is at this dinner party that Marissa and Noah will announce their recent engagement to everyone. Lauren used to be Marissa’s best friend. They practically grew up together and lived together while attending College. But something happened all those years ago that threatened and weakened their friendship, but what happened? We learn much later in the story what happened all those years ago. At the party, Lauren drinks way too much and is visibly drunk. She appears to be flirting with Nathan, much to the annoyance of Marissa and Jensen. Suddenly Lauren says she has to leave and pick up her daughter who is out with friends. What should have been a joyous occasion turns into a nightmare, as Lauren’s lifeless body is found at the bottom of a cliff. But what happened? Was she pushed? Did she accidentally fall to her death? Or did she purposely walk off of the edge, taking her own life? The story unfolds as we continue reading on, and everyone is a suspect. Who is innocent? Who has something to hide? Everyone has their fair share of secrets and betrayals. This was a wonderful book and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it from beginning to end. it had a lot of twists, turns and surprised that keeps the reader interested and engaged in the book the whole way through. I enjoyed the various betrayals and secrets that were brought to light that makes you question each character in the book. You wonder just who is responsible, and what each person is hiding. Nothing is as it seems and no one appears to be who they appear to be. I was really impressed with this book and I will definitely be on the lookout for A.J. Banner’s other books. If you haven’t read this book yet, make sure to add it to your to-be-read list. You won’t be disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Twisty Mystery This was a book that surprised me entirely - the synopsis of the story had caught my attention, but I certainly didn't anticipate the amount of twists and turns that were going to be thrown at me. Synopsis: Marissa and Lauren were the best of friends in childhood, until Lauren betrays Marissa horrifically, ending their relationship. Years later, their paths have crossed again and they are on the path of forgiveness, until the night of Marissa's engagement Lauren ends up dead. This book was a quick, easy read for me - the perfect fit for a hot summer day, reading in the sun. I love books where you have a selection of characters who are all seemingly flawed, and you can clearly trust not one single one of them. There were so many terrific red herrings in this book, that I couldn't help but be completely surprised with each new twist. And that doesn't come close to my surprise at the end - the final twists are beyond crazy. Without question, this book is the perfect fit for readers who love a mix of mystery and character/domestic drama - you might find yourself like me, completely shocked when things start going right off the rails!
