Watching Edie by Camilla Way

The Description

A brilliantly written, incredibly unnerving psychological thriller about friendship, deception and betrayal that will have you captivated from the first to the last page.

 
“Who's good? Who's evil? Those questions are at the heart of WATCHING EDIE, a taut, tricky suspense novel that drops secrets in all the right places. As she explores the heart of a dark female friendship, Camilla Way twists her way to an original ending that rings with truth.”
Julia Heaberlin, author of BLACK-EYED SUSANS

“WATCHING EDIE has a clever plot, a fateful friendship, a callous betrayal, and an ending that is as twisty as it is inevitable—it’s all there!”
Alexandra Burt, international bestselling author of LITTLE GIRL GONE

‘Wonderful -- one of those novels that sucks you in and doesn't let go for a moment.
Way brings a powerful new voice to the psychological thriller genre that promises much for the future.’
Alex Marwood, bestselling author of THE WICKED GIRLS and THE KILLER NEXT DOOR

Beautiful, creative, a little wild – Edie caused a stir when she walked into Heather’s life. Back when they both had dreams for the future. Before it all went horribly, terrifyingly wrong…

Years later Edie is pregnant and alone, desperately trying to rebuild her life. But someone’s been watching her, waiting for the chance to prove what a perfect friend she can be.

It’s no coincidence that Heather shows up just when Edie needs her the most.

A dark secret lies between them and Edie’s about to learn that those who have hurt us deeply—or who we have hurt—never let us go…
 
My Review
 
I loved, loved, loved this book. I thought it was extremely well written. The story is absolutely absorbing, horrifying, and heart rendering. The characters, especially the two main ones, are superb, very well developed, and extremely believable. The relationship between the two kept me gripped. I can assure you there is enough tension in this book to send your blood pressure soaring.
 
It is very cleverly written from two different perspectives, then and now. Then being from the socially inept, overweight Heather's view point, and now being from popular and good looking Edie's. Both girls belong to dysfunctional families and because of this they are drawn together, however, both their friendship, and they, begin to unwind when Edie finds a boyfriend, Connor.
 
Camilla Way had a knack of messing with my emotions like no other, I didn’t know who to believe in, and then came the ending.
 
If you want a book that will grip you from beginning to end, that will have you sitting on the edge of your chair and shouting out nooo, then this is the book for you. It could leave you feeling a little unsettled, but that’s the sign of a great psychological thriller.  
 
An immensely satisfying read.
 
This is my favourite book of 2016 so far.
