One Little Mistake has been on my Netgalley list for far too long, so I thought it was about time I read it. OH MY! What a tense and often uncomfortable read this is. In a good way, of course.
Vicky seems to have it all, a loving husband, three healthy children, a nice home, money, a good job….. but she doesn’t seem to fully appreciate any of them. I didn’t warm to Vicky until right at the end. She came across as spoilt and a bit self-centred to me. She puts her marriage at risk as well as her baby and lies to cover up it all up. Her biggest mistake, however, is confiding in her so called best friend, Amber. I didn’t warm to Amber either. She had a really rough upbringing and feels that those she trusted failed her, which has obviously affected her mental health and life as a whole, but this doesn’t condone her behaviour towards Vicky and her husband. I am amazed Vicky wasn’t more wary of her sooner, but then Amber is a very manipulative character. I can totally understand why she would envy Vicky though, given her past.
This story builds in tension quite early on and doesn’t let up. I was totally hooked. Having said that, at times I wasn’t sure I wanted to carry on reading as I knew something awful was going to happen. I had to know though!
I will be adding Emma Curtis’s upcoming release to my wish list.
Many thanks to the author and publisher for my review copy via Netgalley.
**When I Find You, the eagerly anticipated next thriller from Emma Curtis, is available to pre-order NOW!**
