Jane Hughes resembles any of us. Carefree, adventurous, searching for an escape. She blindly trusts her friends- Daisy, Leanne and Al, not just with her everyday dilemmas, but with her secrets. The ones you wouldn’t want the world to find out about.But is her friendship strong enough to sustain through manipulations and petty games?

This edge-of-the-seat thriller represents all that can go wrong in a perfectly planned holiday. With each chapter, this book tickles your curiosity. By the time one reaches the end, one would have lived a major part of book in their subconscious mind

Set in the mountains of Nepal (well, mostly), this book reflects a part of the author’s personal experience and I think that’s what makes it so authentic, breathtaking and heart-wrenching.

The language is simple and understandable making it suitable for any of us to pick this book up. To be honest, this book has events that will send shivers down your spine.

And the one thing that I am a sucker for- Plot! The plot is delightfully composed with turns I never thought existed. On a personal level, I loved it. This was such a refreshing read.

On a personal level, I loved it. This was such a refreshing read. This book has a perfect balance of everything a decent mystery novel should have. My search for the perfect mystery is a neverending one, but this one surely did a decent job

My Rating: 4.2/5
