Watching Edie Hardcover – August 2, 2016 by Camilla Way

From the Publisher.For fans of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train: A dazzling work of psychological suspense that weaves together the past and present of two women’s twisted friendship.
 
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…

 

 

 

 

Worth Getting in Bed For? Yes. Edie and Heather become friends and both characters are well drawn. You can get a real feel for them as well as other characters as the story progresses. Things are not always what they seem and friendships are sometimes one-sided. Through each chapter, the suspense is built using alternating Before and After storytelling. You know something horrible is coming but you will keep turning the pages to finally get there.
