Description

Soon to be a major motion picture from Lionsgate starring Anna Kendrick, Blake Lively and Henry Golding, and directed by Paul Feig

"Riveting and brilliantly structured, A Simple Favor is an edge-of-your seat domestic thriller about a missing wife and mother that relies on a rotating cast of unreliable narrators to ingeniously examine the cost of competitive mom-friends, the toll of ordinary marital discontent and the fallacy of the picture-perfect, suburban family."—Kimberly McCreight, New York Times bestselling author

She’s your best friend.

She knows all your secrets.

That’s why she’s so dangerous.

A single mother's life is turned upside down when her best friend vanishes in this chilling debut thriller in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train.

It starts with a simple favor—an ordinary kindness mothers do for one another. When her best friend, Emily, asks Stephanie to pick up her son Nicky after school, she happily says yes. Nicky and her son, Miles, are classmates and best friends, and the five-year-olds love being together—just like she and Emily. A widow and stay-at-home mommy blogger living in woodsy suburban Connecticut, Stephanie was lonely until she met Emily, a sophisticated PR executive whose job in Manhattan demands so much of her time.

But Emily doesn’t come back. She doesn’t answer calls or return texts. Stephanie knows something is terribly wrong—Emily would never leave Nicky, no matter what the police say. Terrified, she reaches out to her blog readers for help. She also reaches out to Emily’s husband, the handsome, reticent Sean, offering emotional support. It’s the least she can do for her best friend. Then, she and Sean receive shocking news. Emily is dead. The nightmare of her disappearance is over.

Or is it? Because soon, Stephanie will begin to see that nothing—not friendship, love, or even an ordinary favor—is as simple as it seems.

A Simple Favor is a remarkable tale of psychological suspense—a clever and twisting free-fall of a ride filled with betrayals and reversals, twists and turns, secrets and revelations, love and loyalty, murder and revenge. Darcey Bell masterfully ratchets up the tension in a taut, unsettling, and completely absorbing story that holds you in its grip until the final page.

    Wonderful reading, great plot. Couldn’t stop reading, finished in 48 hours. Didn’t enjoy the movie very much though, the book is definitely better! Highly recommend.
  • Poor ending

    The book was such a great read until the ending. This could also be due to me stopping midway to go see the movie. I knew the movie ending would be a little different than the book but I felt like the whole book had this huge build up and the ending just fell flat. Maybe the author was leaving it open for a sequel but I wouldn’t be interested to read another good book with a flat line ending...
  • Uh... where’s the ending?!

    This book was an attention-grabber right from the beginning. It did take a little getting use to, as it’s written like a journal, almost. There were some details that really didn’t need to be added, as they didn’t affect the storyline at all and seemed to be unnecessary. But the story itself was good. The only thing it was missing was an ending. There was no ending. At all. The author DID do a great job of making the personalities of the three characters seem authentically different, it really seemed like it was three people and not just one person writing three parts. I bought this book because I wanted to read it before watching the movie, but now that I’ve finished the book, I don’t necessarily want to watch the movie. Mainly because of the lack of a closure.
  • Good title/

    The beginning of the book is captivating, but begins to be predictable. The ending leaves a lot to be desired. The first 2/3 is good.
  • Not a tough read

    Although it was a nice easy read the weird and desperate plot twist leave you few cheated. “It was her twin” jumped the shark!

    I had so much confusion with the book. I did not like Stephanie. She was so absurd and naive. The movie fixed a lot of things I wish the book did better. But the overall story was intriguing and i read straight through.

    Absolutely horrible. Hated all the characters. I found it very disturbing. The ending just left us hanging after wasting our time reading this awful book. No clue how this became a move, don’t waste your time reading this, it was just plan bad.
