The Birthday Girl by Sue Fortin

‘The Birthday Girl’ is the first book I have read by Sue Fortin – and I have to say that I loved it!
I have read some of the other reviews, and yes, I agree that the beginning is a little far-fetched; but isn’t that what fiction is all about, pushing boundaries?? And yes, the girls are all rather unpleasant to each other and I wouldn’t want that sort of friendship personally, but doesn’t that contribute to the uneasy atmosphere of a thriller?
As far as readability goes I couldn’t put it down! The ending was neat, all ends were tied up and it wasn’t all happily ever after!
Easily a five star read for me and I will be reading more Sue Fortin in the future!
