Beautiful, creative, a little wild… Edie was the kind of girl who immediately caused a stir when she walked into your life. And she had dreams back then—but it didn’t take long for her to learn that things don’t always turn out the way you want them to.

Now, at thirty-three, Edie is working as a waitress, pregnant and alone. And when she becomes overwhelmed by the needs of her new baby and sinks into a bleak despair, she thinks that there’s no one to turn to…

But someone’s been watching Edie, waiting for the chance to prove once again what a perfect friend she can be. It’s no coincidence that Heather shows up on Edie’s doorstep, just when Edie needs her the most. So much has passed between them—so much envy, longing, and betrayal. And Edie’s about to learn a new lesson: those who have hurt us deeply—or who we have hurt—never let us go, not entirely…

The big question in ‘Watching Edie‘ is who is good and who is bad?, maybe a better question is is there a clear line between good and bad?.
Is it Edie or her youth friend Heather? Both have a history, both shared and on their own. Heather visiting her old friend opens up old wounds; the story switches between Edie’s nowadays story and Heather’s memories.

‘Watching Edie‘ is a slow paced psychological thriller which takes it time to build up towards the unexpected plot. Well written, highly entertaining and recommended to read curled up on the coach while a storm rages outside.
