The Fifth Letter by Nicola Moriarty

Into the Wild

Read The Fifth Letter Online Free - A fun vacation game turns destructive, exposing dark secrets, deeply buried grudges, and a shocking betrayal in Nicola Moriarity’s intriguing debut.

Four friends . . .

Joni, Deb, Eden, and Trina have been best friends since high school, sharing a bond that has seen them through their teenage years and into adulthood. But now, time and circumstance is starting to pull them apart as careers, husbands, and babies get in the way. As their yearly vacation becomes less of a priority—at least for three of the women—how can Joni find a way to draw the four of them back together?

Four secrets . . .

During a laughter and wine-filled night, the women dare one another to write anonymous letters, spilling their deepest, darkest secrets. But the fun game turns devastating, exposing cracks in their lives and the friendships they share. Each letter is a dark confession revealing shocking information. A troubled marriage? A substance abuse problem? A secret pregnancy? A heartbreaking diagnosis?

Five letters . . .

Late on one of their last nights together, after the other three have gone to bed, Joni notices something in the fireplace—a burnt, crumpled, nearly destroyed, sheet of paper that holds the most shattering revelation of all. It is a fifth letter—a hate-filled rant that exposes a vicious, deeply hidden grudge that has festered for decades. But who wrote it? Which one of them has seethed with resentment all these years? What should Joni do?

Best friends are supposed to keep your darkest secrets. But the revelations Joni, Deb, Eden and Trina have shared will ripple through their lives with unforeseen consequences . . . and things will never be the same.

When it comes to my reading experience with this book, there’s no other word to describe it but “lazy”. I confess: I started this (mystery) book knowing that all the questions will be answered eventually and that, with time, I’ll find out who wrote the fifth letter and which from four letters belo...

3.5 stars “It’s chilling isn’t it? The idea that within a close group of four women, one of them could hate another one so much that she thinks about hurting them.” Four friends. One holiday trip. Five letters. Who is lying? The premise is simple enough: four women who have been friends since high...

There is an old saying "With friends like these you don't need enemies" which fits this book perfectly. I would hate to be friends with any of the four women depicted but is sure is fun to read about them! Joni, Eden, Deb and Trina are four thirty something women who have been besties since high...

I'm a huge fan of Liane Moriarty's work, so I found it thrilling to see her sister, Nicola, has ventured into women's fiction. Even though I knew Nicola would have her own voice and style, I was hoping it would be reminiscent of her sister's, and it was. Double the Moriarty books?! I'm game! The...

A very entertaining read that I got lost in over a few hours. Great women's fiction! Pure escapism via a book. This is a great beach/bed/sofa/armchair/anywhere read! Great to get stuck with. Four best friends come together for a holiday to connect with each other after busy lives have kept them a...

I was lucky to receive an email from NetGalley offering first approval for 200 members if you were interested in receiving a digital ARC for read and review. As I am trying to read more adult fiction in preparation for returning to education as an adult student, I decided to give this a try. The...

This book was incredibly disappointing. Very unrealistic premise from the get-go (the way their friendship is explained is a bit ludicrous to be honest) and the dialogue even more so. I would read large passages of dialogue thinking it was exposition until I saw the end-quote. People just don't t...

I bought my own paperback. This is my first book that I have read by Nicola Moriarty. I totally loved every page of The Fifth Letter. I thought the idea was amazing, fresh and different. Four best friends since the first day of school. Best friends, they liked to say, for ever. Now in their thirt...

Zo, dat is echt een quick read. Je merkt dat deze Moriarty geinspireerd is door de boeken van haar zus, een van mijn favoriete schrijvers, Liane Moriarty. Dat zou dus een slap aftreksel kunnen zijn, maar dat is het niet. Dit is GOED. Zodra ik eenmaal begonnen was, bleef ik lezen. En wat is het een...
