As teenagers, Poppy Carlisle and Serena Gorringe were the only witnesses to a high-profile murder. Amid heated public debate, the two seemingly glamorous teens were dubbed “The Ice Cream Girls” by the press and were dealt with by the courts—Poppy headed to prison after being convicted for murder, and Serena was set free.

Twenty years later, after having led very different lives, Poppy is released from prison and keen to set the record straight about what really happened. The only problem is she has no one to turn to and no clue where to begin her hunt for Serena.

Meanwhile, Serena is married with children and wants no one in her present to find out about her past. Constantly looking over her shoulder, Serena knows she should come clean to her husband; however, she can’t seem to find the words.

With Poppy determined to salvage what’s left of her reputation, Serena may not have a choice in reopening a can of worms that may threaten both their lives—again.

    " I really enjoyed this book and didn't want to have to put it down or for it to end. The storyline really drew me in and kept my attention I've had this for a while now as my son bought I for me for Mothers Day last year but I had only just got round to it. The style is very different from The Chocolate Run but I thought it was a better read then that as the storyline was much more interesting. Best one so far for me. "
