One Small Mistake
A gripping page-turner, with shades of BA Paris and Erin Kelly’s He Said/ She Said, which explores the idea of how far you would go to fulfil your dream and live up to your perfect sister, and how well you know your best friend.
How far will you go to get what you want? In her late twenties, and without a career, a husband or a mortgage, Elodie Fray isn’t living up to her parents’ expectations. She’s given everything up to achieve her dream of being an author. But a year on and with no publishing triumph, the validation and approval she craves seem out of reach. Then, after one drunken night and one terrible misunderstanding, everyone thinks she has a book deal. Desperate to dig herself out of a hole, Elodie agrees to go to extreme lengths to join the ranks of best-selling authors and is swept up in the perfect true-crime plot. But, when things go hideously wrong, Elodie learns the time old adage: be careful what you wish for…
How far will you go to find your missing sister? Unlike Elodie, Adaline Archer has the life she’s always wanted: beautiful house, beautiful car and beautiful husband. But she is living a lie. With the sudden disappearance of her sister, Ada questions everything, including the man who’s been charged with her sister’s abduction. The papers say it’s him, but the more she digs into her sister’s life, the less convinced she is. Ada will do anything to discover the truth, even if it kills her. Even if it kills them both.
As Elodie and Adaline’s stories converge, will they be able to save each other, and themselves, in time?
