The Playdate introduces us to three women. Callie is a single mother, desperate to get back into the work field after having her daughter, Rea, who has a fragile heart. Her best friend Suzie lives next door. Suzie has three boys and an absentee, often cold shouldered husband. Then there is Debs. An older woman, you know from her reactions and behaviors that something is not quite right with her. Each of these women have a secret.
The book was pretty boring for most of the first half. I almost gave up on it. then it started to gain some momentum and then finally I couldn't put it down. Some things I had figured out but others, oh man, I did not expect one of the smaller twists.
This book is not the best thriller ever but it's certainly not the worst that I have read.
