My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Actual rating 3.5 stars. This book had a good story line, great characters, and a good plot twist. However it was hard to get into, it felt sort of dry, also timing of the story confused me a bit. I had to go back a few times to see if I had missed or skipped a date in the header etc (but hadn’t). Without spoiling this book also was a bit predictable sometimes, but the main plot twist did surprise me in the end. Some parts also seemed unrealistic like falling in love so quickly but then again that’s young love isn’t it? Overall it was a mildly suspenseful cute little BFF story!

God what a really great read! This is my first book by the author and it was intense. The storyline for Cate and Patti was incredible and when you thought you had a grip on what was going on- there was a curve ball thrown right at ya. There’s a lot of twists and surprise and it really kept me on the edge of my seat. Cate and Pattis friendship was an important facet and I am so glad I got to experience it. Im ready for another one!!

This book definitely pulled me in immediately and I simply couldn’t put it down. I may have stayed up later than planned just so I could finish but it was so worth it. This author knows how to keep a readers completely captured. The characters are complex and relatable, I felt a connection easily. I found myself trying to both read faster to know what happens and wanting to savor this story I was drawn into. The friendship displayed in this story is definitely one that reminds me of my own experiences in the real world maybe not exactly but the bond is the same. If I could read this book for the first time again I definitely would but as I can’t I’ll just add it to my read again list. Well written and paced nicely with characters you won’t forget for a while. Five stars and highly recommended.

Well okay! I read this book on 2 hours it was that good.
I must say that it was so fast paced that I was like wait no that can’t be it..yup mystery solved.
It’s murder mystery meets friendship 101.
The friends you make in high school are usually the ones you never forget.
This author is so detailed in her words and the descriptions of the characters and the plot that you feel like part of the story.
I loved it!
I would recommend this to everyone as a high school graduation gift, light but mysterious and overall engaging. Added to my collection.
This was an easy five stars.

Prom night is supposed to be one of the best nights of one’s life. Cati and Patti were ride or die friends, and what they planned to be a special night turned into their life long nightmare. Cate Silver killed a man and Patti helped “hide” the incident for 20 long years. After this night, the girls didn’t know how to deal with life and drifted apart, each dealing with their own monsters. However, once again, 20 years later, they needed each other because the cold case was being reopened. As ride or die friends do, no matter how long it’s been, they support each other and come up with a plan on how they will survive.

This was such a great friendship book. I know it sounds kind of weird due to the fact that someone dies, but sometimes friendship goes beyond what is acceptable. The author did such a great job in the description of the characters that you felt that you really knew each one and how they would respond in these different situations. It made me think of my best friend the whole time. Each person needs a ride or die friendship that will be there, support you, and do whatever to ensure your safety because that is how much they love you. However, I think that this book also provides a great lesson for young people – the truth will always set you free and may bring unexpected outcomes.

Cate and Patty have the type of friendship that everyone longs for. You instantly get swept up in this wonderful story. It takes place over the span of 20 years and shows the ups and downs of how friendships evolve over the years. This is a book of mystery, secrets, first loves and shows the importance of family. Even does a good deal of showing that family isn’t always by blood. This whole story resonated with me on so many levels. I highly recommend this story. Will definitely be checking out more books by this talented author.

First time reading a book by this author & I have fallen in love with her writing. This book is a story about life long friends and a tragic event on prom night that sets in motion a life on the run for Cate. The story has twists & turns that I never saw coming & kept me turning the pages late into the evening!!

When Cate returns to deal with her father, she decides to stop running. Patti, her best friend since high school, is there to stand by her & provide support. This is a true story of friendship & forgiveness, love & loss. I could relate to Cate & Patti & their relationship. Look forward to reading more by this author.
