Bec’s sister, Kate, used to be a model but after losing her arm now works in academia. She makes Bec think she sees a lot of men but in reality Adam, the new guy she is seeing, is the first guy she’s slept with in ages.
Although the beginning starts a bit disjointedly, this debut novel becomes a captivating read as the tension is ramped up. Since making a mistake applies to a number of the characters, it makes for a great selection for a robust book club discussion.
