When Krissie joins her best friend, Sarah, on a walking holiday in the Scottish Highlands, it seems like the peaceful balm they both need. But peace turns to betrayal when Krissie seduces Sarah's husband, Kyle - and it isn't long before betrayal turns to murder . . .
Childhood friends Krissie Donald & Sarah Morgan are like chalk and cheese. A free-spirited maneater, Krissie prefers explosive sexual liasions to relationships. Sarah, by contrast, has snagged an eligible doctor and is desperate to start a family...
Krissie and Sarah's relationship starts to go awry when Krissie becomes pregnant after a holiday one night stand in Tenerife. For Sarah, who's been trying to conceive for what seems like forever, Krissie's pregnancy can't help but seem a little unfair.
Things between Krissie and Sarah go from bad to worse during a holiday in the Scottish Highlands with Sarah's husband, Kyle. What starts out as an enjoyable and much-needed break soon becomes a nightmarish combination of sexual tension, murder and mayhem.
Fast-paced and brilliantly told, with wickedly observed characters and a spectacular denouement, Dead Lovely is a compulsive read from start to finish.
