Publisher's Summary

'From the first time I saw them together I knew it felt wrong. I didn't like the way he touched her or the self-conscious way he played with Molly and Luke. Joanne saw none of it of course. So I did it to prove to her that she was wrong. I did it for us.'
Emily's instincts tell her that best friend Joanne's new boyfriend is bad news. Emily fears for Joanne. Fears for Joanne's children. But Joanne won't listen because she's in love. So Emily watches and waits...and then she makes a choice. But Emily has a past, and secrets, too. And is she really as good a friend to Joanne as she claims?

"Unpredictable, challenging and compelling." (Sophie Hannah, author of Did You See Melody?)

" I Did It For Us held me from the off. It's compelling, slickly plotted and brilliantly written." (Amanda Jennings, author of In Her Wake)

Kept me guessing but a little disconnected

This was a decent story and for the most part my interest held. The beginning is compelling but it is not what the book is about, it’s more background story so I was confused for a while when it transitioned in a different direction.
It’s one of those books where almost all of the action unfolds at the end, rather than hinted at throughout. Some things that ended up as minor parts of the story were initially so well detailed while some very significant things were barley delved into. Additionally, because side stories were not resolved, the events didn’t tie in strong enough. It did keep me guessing all the way through but mostly because I wasn’t sure which aspects were important. But as a whole, it was entertaining enough, I’m not sure I would enthusiastically recommend it to someone but it wasn’t a waste of credit.

A satisfying read

I’m easily bored by bad storytelling. This book kept me interested, and had a couple of twists I didn’t see coming. The narrator was quite good, and it was a satisfying read.

Excellent thriller with a twist.

Thoroughly enjoyable story that had you gripped to the end. A theme that tugged at emotions. Very enjoyable and well performed.

An enjoyable thriller

With a twist...

Something different from the Gary Goodhew author, still based around Cambridge and the outer reaches. Good story, good twist but I do love a Gary Goodhew novel!
