Nora hasn’t seen Clare for ten years. Not since Nora walked out of school one day and never went back.

In a dark, dark wood there was a dark, dark house

Until, out of the blue, an invitation to Clare’s bachelorette party arrives. Is this a chance for Nora to finally put her past behind her?

And in the dark, dark house there was a dark, dark room

But something goes wrong. Very wrong.

And in the dark, dark room…

Some things can’t stay secret forever.
I was slightly disappointed because, to me, it was rather predictable. You are still drawn into the story and  compelled to keep reading. It was hard to rate because of this. You want to know why Clare has been invited back into her friends' lives after all these years especially for such an intimate party.  The story has a lot of flashbacks but the end does not disappoint with a "AHHHHH No it makes sense!"  feeling of closure.
