Joni, Deb, Eden, Trina have been best friends since high school, sharing a bond that has seen them through their teenage years and into adulthood. But now time and circumstance are starting to pull them apart as careers, husbands, and babies get in the way. As their yearly vacation becomes less of a priority, at least for three of the women, how can Joni find a way to draw the four of them back together? During a laughter- and wine-filled night, the women dare one another to write anonymous letters, spilling their deepest, darkest secrets. But the fun game turns devastating, exposing cracks in their lives and the friendship they share. Each letter is a dark confession revealing shocking information. A troubled marriage? A substance abuse problem? A secret pregnancy? A heartbreaking diagnosis? Late on one of their last nights together, after the other three have gone to bed, Joni notices something in the fireplace, a burnt, crumpled, nearly destroyed sheet of paper that holds the most shattering revelation of all. It is a fifth letter, a hate-filled rant that exposed a vicious, deeply hidden grudge that has festered for years. But who wrote it? Which one of them has seethed with resentment all these years? What should Joni do?--Page 4 of cover

I thought this book was hyped up more because of who the author’s sister is. I found the story line far fetched and nothing interesting to get into. Very dull

Four friends continue their high school friendship for twenty years. But this year is different; at a girl's getaway, a game of truth or dare goes dreadfully wrong when one member proposes each write a letter with something that the others don't know about them. 4 friends, but 5 letters appear, the fifth a vitriolic attack on un-named member of the group. Kept me reading, but failed to form any real connection with the characters.

Was a good book with a great plot but was somewhat spoilt by crass profanity and the author did also make an inconsistent error. She claimed Eden's house was a "single-storey red-brick home" on page 222 and then on page 299 Eden's husband Ben was bringing her back "downstairs" after her shower. If you are going to be a successful writer you need to keep your story consistent and factual.
It may be an innocuous mistake but an author can often lose credibility if they can't even keep something as basic as a house the right storey!

An interesting story-line, but too much drama and foul language.

Really light, easy read. If you're looking for a summer beach book...
