Today I am taking part in the books on tour and reviewing The Ex Between Us by Nicola Marsh, published by Bookouture.


You can always trust your friends. Can’t you?

Abi is starting a new chapter of her life. Her son is leaving for college, she has her dream job and she is finally ready to find love again after her relationship with her ex Cal has ended.

Jo has been by Abi’s side for years. They’ve navigated all of life’s ups and downs together. Even when Abi betrayed Jo with Cal all those years ago, she forgave her and the three remain close.

So when Abi starts dating again, Jo and Cal begin to spend more time together. But soon Jo receives threatening messages telling her to stay away from him. And when Abi comes to her terrified, clutching a note that says “I want your life,” it becomes clear that someone wants to cause the friends harm.

Because in Jo and Abi’s close-knit circle someone has been living a lie for years and it’s about to come to light. But when it does, who will make it out alive?

An utterly addictive psychological thriller which is packed with twist after twist from the USA Today bestselling author of My Sister’s Husband. Perfect for fans of K.L. Slater, The Wife Between Us and Gone Girl.

“The best of friends keep the deadliest secrets”

Nicola Marsh slays with this book and has outdone herself once again. She amazes me how each book she writes becomes my new favourite!

Marsh weaves a wicked and twisty plot that had me hanging off every word. I loved being pulled into the story where I became embroiled in the drama of it all, which had me rubbing my hands with glee. Marsh never disappoints in bringing to the table a tale that just consumes you and keeps you on the edge of your seat.

I enjoyed the alternating perspectives from Jo and Abi and their version of past events that set the scene for what unfolds in the present. I didn’t know who I could trust and was kept second guessing myself as I was lead down a path full of juicy secrets, lies and deceit! And that ending…WOW!! Talk about mic drop!

The Ex Between Us is everything I could have wanted and more and just reiterates why Marsh is my favourite Aussie author! A brilliant read from start to finish, I can’t recommend this one highly enough. It is definitely one of my best reads of the year!
