I’m going to start by saying that quite simply Brandy Scott is one to watch. This is a smacker of a debut, with a fabulous cast of characters and a rollercoaster plot line that keeps you guessing until the end.
Meet three friends: Melina, Aimee and Lou. They have known each other since forever, but how well do they really know each other, and how do the repercussions of one decision test the very core of their friendship.
Brandy Scott has created a wonderful world in Not Bad People, a seemingly perfect tight-knit community but it doesn’t take long the cracks forms and erupt as one accident shocks everyone. Discussing themes of parenthood, friendship and the balancing act of modern life all within a plot line that twists and turns at every level, this is definitely a novel to pick up now. It leads you, secrets and lies hiding just out of view, but keep going – even when the tension slightly drops just before the end – as you race towards a conclusion that leaves you gasping. All I can say is this is a goodie.
