Friends Don't Lie

Riveting, thought-provoking, and impeccably written. I loved it’ Carol Mason

‘A real page turner’

How well do you know your friends?

Everyone knows Melissa Silk and her two best friends: a walking poster for friendship and community. People might hate them if they weren’t so infectiously likeable.

But when a fatal accident causes their perfect world to shatter, Melissa can’t move on.

Everyone urges Melissa not to let obsession and paranoia pull their friendship group apart. But she knows that something about the accident doesn’t quite add up.

What if learning the truth means losing everything she cherishes?

Because friends don’t lie.

Or do they?

This is a gripping novel of friendship and heartache, perfect for fans of Susan Lewis, Amanda Prowse and Kate Hewitt.

Riveting, thought-provoking, and impeccably written, Friends Don't Lie is an all-too-convincing reminder that even the most deeply-rooted relationships aren't always as trustworthy as they seem. I loved it
Carol Mason
Six friends, three families: a lifetime of shared memories; absolute trust. But when tragedy strikes a fault line appears through which secrets bubble up like lava and, like lava, these secrets threaten to destroy everything in their path. Cath Weeks writes with an assured hand about family and community and the cracks beneath our feet. Her characters are vivid and her plotting is deft. I could taste the air of Milford: the dust of its streets and the tang of salt in the air. The truth of why four went out to sea and only three came home took my breath away. This is an absolute must-read
Claire Dyer
A gripping and emotionally charged tale of lifelong friendships placed under extreme pressure. Compelling and thought provoking, it had me holding my breath for the characters, and it kept me guessing all the way through to the wonderfully satisfying ending
Emma Rous, author of <i>The Au Pair</i>
Writing without melodrama or artificially generated excitement, the tremendous tension that Weeks achieves arises naturally from the story and its players
