    This is a well-written, creepy take on the story of a woman scorned. Semi-happily married Natty is called away from her family and her family's business (a boutique hotel that she and her husband own and operate) when one of her teenage daughters has a medical emergency while on a class trip out of the country. Luckily, Natty's best friend, Eve, is visiting and promises to watch after Natty's husband and other daughter. Unfortunately while Natty is away, Eve moves in Natty's husband and takes advantage of her best-friend insider information to steal him away. When Natty returns home she realizes what has happened and her nightmare begins. Originally feeling betrayed, sad and angry, Natty quickly moves into investigation mode when she gets an anonymous note that this isn't the first time Eve has stolen a husband. When Eve finds out Natty is getting close to discovering her deep secrets, Eve lashes out to make Natty even more miserable. I won this book via First Reads and I found it to be a quick read because I didn't want to put it down. Although the idea isn't an original one, the way this tale was told unfolds well and keeps the reader guessing. And the ending certainly did not disappoint.

    Natty Wainwright is living a good life with her husband, Sean, and their daughters, Alice and Felicity. They have worked hard on their hotel business to create an affluent lifestyle. But when Eve, Natty's old friend from university, reappears in their lives everything goes wrong as Eve steals Natty's life from under her.This is a really accomplished psychological thriller. Mostly told by Natty, the story proceeds at a very fast pace and I couldn't stop reading. The characterisations are great, even down to the supporting cast and it's a cleverly pulled together plot leading up to a fabulous ending which I loved.I must get hold of Paula Daly's first book now as this one was great!Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for allowing me to review this book.

    I read this author's first book, Just What Kind of Mother Are You?. It was fine. what drew me to this one was the book cover, the book summary, and again the fact that the prior novel was fine. I have to say this book was by far way better then the prior one. If you are wanting to know what this author is like then check out this book. I could not stop reading this book. Although to be honest, I thought that Sean was a douche and thus did not feel that sorry for Natty. I thought she could do way better than Sean. This book had a little feel of Fatal Attraction with Eve being Glenn Close. However Glenn was way more evil then Eve. I was not expecting the twist with Natty's past. That just added an extra level to the story. By the end I was on Natty's die all the way. The ending was the perfect ending to this story.

    I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this was in some ways a sequel to "Just What Kind of Mother Are You", being set in the same location and featuring the same detectives. I hope Joanne Aspinall will appear in further novels.Natty travels to France to be with her younger daughter who has developed appendicitis while on a school trip and her university friend Eve, who happens to be visiting, offers to stay on for a few days and help Sean, Natty's husband out. When Natty returns 10 days later, Sean announces that he is in love with Eve and therefore breaking up with Natty. Things go from bad to worse and secrets about Natty's past are revealed. It also becomes clear early on that Eve is acting intentionally and has a bit of a history of such behaviour.I found this novel a page turner, although certain elements are, when you stand back and think about it, a little melodramatic. Sean did seem to fall prey to Eve very easily; the response of the children, Alice and Felicity, was more realistic. The ending was unexpected and darker than I would have anticipated. I liked the way Felicity saw through Eve and Sean's mother Penny was splendidly awful.

    Really good read, with different points of view odd and yet believable characters, places and situations the whole story skips along and even the ending fits the tale - a writer I'd read again without a doubt

    This is the second book by Paula Daly and I liked it even more than I liked the first one!
  • (5/5)
    I really enjoyed this audiobook. I did not know that there would be cross over characters from a previous novel. It was a pleasant surprise. And, so was the ending.
  • (3/5)
    The book definitely kept my interest but I feel like the ending was rushed and didn't really leave me with a feeling of satisfaction.

    Keep Your Friends Close – Seriously Twisted Seriously BrilliantKeep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly is one seriously twisted seriously brilliant psychological thriller that hits all the right buttons so close to the real world it is frightening. There are more twists and turns than on your average mountain path with just as much danger that keeps you on edge throughout the book. Paula Daly hits a nerve early in the book with an seriously ill child on a school trip, every parents nightmare, from there the darkness continues a pace even at the end.Natty Wainwright and her husband have very busy lives running a popular hotel on the banks of Lake Windermere, in the Lake District along with bringing up their two children, Alice and Felicity both teenagers. Natty loves and devotes every waking hour to the girls and when they are at school every other hour to helping in the running of the hotel. Natty is looking forward to the arrival of her friend from University now working over in America, Dr Eve Dalladay and catch up with all the gossip. After she arrives Natty receives a call that all parents dread, Felicity, on a school trip in France is in hospital and she is seriously ill, it is decided Natty will go out to France. Eve volunteers to help Sean out with Alice while she is away, as it ill not be too long before she is home.While Natty is with Felicity, Eve makes a move on Sean all part of a plan to have some fun and she sets about snaring Sean, and she knows no boundaries. When Natty gets back she finds she is now relegated to being the ex-wife and Natty cannot believe how her world is falling apart. Whereas Eve sets about her plan to make Natty look like a parnoid ex-wife who will go to any lengths to be a danger to herself and others.Natty is alone bewildered and angry while being psychologically tortured by someone who she thought of as a friend she feels as if she is having a break down. Natty is determined to find the truth about Eve but what she does not realise is there may be collateral damage along the way. The reader is taken along with Natty on her fight for her family and her future and the way it is written you feel what Natty feels and the anger that Eve can stir within the reader is unbelievable. This psychological thriller will make you seriously worried for Natty and willing for the best for her but you cannot help yourself.Paul Daly really knows how to write a psychological thriller and how to Keep Your Friends Close and she knows how to speak that fear all parents have about their families. What stands out for me is that not only is this book seriously twisted at times it is also seriously brilliant to read that will envelop the reader. Some how Paula Daly knows how to get under the skin of the reader, she is uttlery twisted and does psychological torture well, I like her!
