The Vacation!

The Vacation by T.M. Logan
Print & e-book, 384 pages
Published July 21st 2020 by St. Martin's Press

In The Vacation, a captivating thriller from T. M. Logan, the bestselling author of Lies and 29 Seconds, four lifelong friends on a luxurious vacation come face-to-face with an explosive secret.

It was supposed to be the perfect vacation, dreamed up by Kate as the ideal way to turn 40: four best friends and their husbands and children, spending a week in a luxurious villa under the blazing sunshine of Provence.

But there is trouble in paradise.

Kate suspects that her husband is having an affair—and that the other woman is one of her best friends. One of these women is willing to sacrifice years of friendship and destroy her family. But which one?

As Kate closes in on the truth in the stifling Mediterranean heat, she realizes—too late—that the stakes are far higher than she ever imagined. And someone in the villa may be prepared to kill to keep their lies hidden.

My thoughts about The Vacation ~~ 

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"We drove north, away from the coast."

Four best friend and their families housed together for a week in a beautiful place that includes a pool. Sounds like the perfect vacation, right? What could go wrong? 

Well, just about everything, it seems. Combine a bunch of secrets and lies, plenty of tension, squabbling adults, a few bratty kids, some teenage angst for good measure and you have a week that is anything but the perfect vacation.

It starts out relaxing and peaceful enough and then things start to ratchet up. With each turn of the page, the reader gets drawn into the drama. This story took twists and turns that I wasn't anticipating—but then, that's to be expected with books by this amazing and creative author. 

The Vacation is an exciting thriller that kept me on the edge of my seat. And an ending that I thought about long after I closed the cover.

I received The Vacation from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion.
