"Four lifelong friends on a luxurious vacation come face-to-face with an explosive secret. It was supposed to be the perfect vacation, dreamed up by Kate as the ideal way to turn 40: four best friends and their husbands and children, spending a week in a luxurious villa under the blazing sunshine of Provence. But there is trouble in paradise. Kate suspects that her husband is having an affair-and that the other woman is one of her best friends. One of these women is willing to sacrifice years of friendship and destroy her family. But which one? As Kate closes in on the truth in the stifling Mediterranean heat, she realizes-too late-that the stakes are far higher than she ever imagined. And someone in the villa may be prepared to kill to keep their lies hidden"-- Provided by publisher.

A perfectly fine but most likely forgettable mystery. Props for only having two likable characters in this locked-room cast of 12.

A vacation in the south of France sounds pretty nice right now. But, then again, I don't know that I would want to spend it with these twelve people. . . Kate (she also gets my vote for favorite character) is our main narrator with others contributing. She sees texts on her husband's phone that hint at an affair with one of her best friends and fellow vacationers. At that point, I am ready to ride this crazy train all the way to the end. This story is filled to the brim with relationship baggage, parenting mistakes, sibling rivalry, and secrets around every corner of the villa. Add in that dangerous drop-off just below the vineyard and you have a recipe for disaster. As the week goes on, the situation becomes ever more complicated into a tangled mess. Can it all be untangled? Who will be damaged in the process? Will there be justice? This is a smashingly good summer read. My favorite from T.M. Logan to date.
