Livy is attending a party with her husband Will, given by his boss. Livy’s best friend, Julia, tries to reach her, texts her, and leaves messages, but Livy can’t answer her phone, because she is too busy checking out the woman her husband had a fling with a few years ago. The next day, Livy and her two children arrive at Julia’s apartment for a planned luncheon, but there is no answer. Using her key, Livy enters and finds her friend dead on the couch. The coroner rules the death a suicide, but Livy can’t buy that. Neither can Julia’s boyfriend and the two of them try to trace what happened in the two days before Julia’s death. Set in England, “You Can trust Me” by Sophie McKenzie is a mastery of clues and suspects. Interspersed with the story are musings or writings from the killer. This brings the tension to a fever pitch. This book is addictive. I couldn’t stop reading until I found out who the killer was.
I was sent a free print copy of the book by NightOwlReviews.com in return for my honest review of the book.
