The Scandal is the first book of Nicola Marsh's that I have read. What a great story this was!! Basically told the story of 3 friends who live in the Hampton's area where the rich and famous live, Marisa is the picture perfect wealthy wife of a successful businessman, Claire who is a police officer and Ella who is single. They all have issues - Marisa is tired of being the perfect trophy wife who caters to her businessman husband's every whim, Claire has been trying to start a family, and Ella is trying to right the wrongs that have happened to her in her life. All of these women come together when a situation arises that threatens to derail one or all of them.
This book had it all. There was infidelity, domestic abuse, murder, sex, betrayal, female friendship etc etc - I just couldn't put it down!
I would highly recommend it to readers of thrillers, domestic noir or even just suspense. Nicola is an accomplished writer who is able to turn her skills into several genres. I am so happy to discover her!
