It was their darkest secret. Three schoolgirls made a promise – to take the horrible truth of what they did to the grave.
Thirty years later, Beth and Sally have tried to put the trauma behind them. Though Carol has distanced herself from her former friends, the three are adamant that the truth must never come to light, even if the memory still haunts them.
But when some shocking news threatens to unearth their dark secret, Beth enlists the help of private investigator Matthew Hill to help her and Sally reconnect with estranged Carol – before the terrible act they committed as teenagers is revealed.
Beth wishes she could take back the vow they made.
But somebody is watching and will stop at nothing to ensure the secret stays buried. Now, with her beloved family in peril, can Beth still keep the promise?
A promise made 30 years ago between 3 girls shapes and influences their lives up until now, this secret is about to come out and turn their world upside down.
It took me quite some time to get into this book, the first half doesn’t give away a lot except for the fact there is a secret, but no hints towards what secret. But when you pass into the 2nd half it feels like a roller coaster, a steamroller which hits you with twist after twist. The amount of twists started to feel a bit unreal to me but ‘life is stranger than fiction‘ right?
It is worth it to keep on reading, The Promise will reward you in the end and leave you with a good feeling.
