Review: The Fifth Letter - Nicola Moriarty

The Fifth Letter

Review: The Fifth Letter - Nicola Moriarty - January 2017

Every year Joni, Deb, Trina and Eden get together and spend a holiday together. The four of them have been best friends since they were in high school. Now years later, with families and relationships and jobs, the four of them find it hard to schedule time together. So Joni being the organizer of the group, gets them together for a week away.  As a game, the four of them who don't talk to one another as much as they should decide to write a letter confessing their darkest and deepest secrets. The letters will also be anonymous. During the night after all four have typed up their letters, three of them fell asleep, and one of them got up to type another letter. This letter was the darkest of them all and disturbing. As they share the letters, the rest of them try and guess whose dark secrets are being revealed but Joni finds the fifth letter in the fireplace - which of the women does it belong too and now Joni must figure out the owner of the letter with the help of a fellow priest before one of the friends does something dangerous and deadly - like act on her impulses and darkest and deepest desires.
I originally thought this book was going to be quite a standard chick-lit type novel but was surprised and found the book more enjoyable with the mystery aspect added and I loved the twist with the priest near the end, that made me smile. The other thing that The Fifth Letter showed me was that we don't know our friends even our closest ones as much as we think we do. There will always be some deep dark secret or desire that we don't and often never will know.
