Soon Natalie is spending long, intoxicating days with Lara at the pool - and intimate evenings at her home. Natalie's real life begins to feel very far away.But is the new friendship everything it seems? Why is Natalie haunted by memories from another summer years ago? And, without realising, has she been swept dangerously out of her depth?About the AuthorSince graduating from University College London, Louise Candlish has had various jobs in publishing and journalism, most recently working as a copywriter for a new media agency.
