The premise of a dark hidden secret and a promise to keep that secret between three schoolgirls instantly grabbed my attention I needed to find out what had happened and how this secret and the promise they made had impacted all of their lives.The writing simmered with unease as I followed Beth s story Now a married mum, it was evident on the page that her past and the shared secret still had an impact on her life today.Throughout the story we catch glimpses of what happened in the past between Beth, Sally and Carol But it s not until the very end that the truth is revealed and it did shock me It is this secret that binds the story together and which made me race through the pages in my need to discover the truth.I loved Beth She s a likeable character and was very real to me I found her relationship with Sally fascinating, learning how the two girls had bonded over this shared secret and whose relationship continued to grow through into adulthood Beth s struggle to keep the secret at all costs, and to reconnect with Carol were completely understandable.We then have the additional storyline involving Matthew, the private investigator, who helps Beth and Sally in their search for Carol, knowing that there is far to the story I loved the interaction between these three characters and the fact that Matthew had his own secret.The Promise is an unsettling and entertaining read Packed with tension, dark secrets and a truth that will shock The author tackles a sensitive subject with empathy and understanding.If you love psychological thrillers with characters that you deeply care for and a griping plot, then you ll enjoy this book.With thanks to the publisher for the Advanced Reader Copy for review purposes flag 2 likesLike see review Nov 08,

The sad thing about this book is that by the time it really starts to get going two thirds in, I had already lost interest in the characters and the story This book could use some serious editing and maybe could have been published as a interesting novella Or you could just skip the first two thirds of the book to get to the payoff 2.5 rounded up flag 1 likeLike see review Oct 16, 2018 Jennifer
