SYNOPSIS/BOOK BLURB & purchase links

My life was perfect until she came along. Norah.

Younger, prettier and about to marry my own ex-husband, they are a walking cliché.

I hate her. I hate them both.

She’s taken everything from me – my husband, my life, my home – but I refuse to allow her to take Cassie, my beautiful daughter. That’s a step too far.

Now I’ve discovered that Norah plans to have a baby of her own and that causes me no end of problems. She could destroy everything and reveal my deepest, darkest secrets.

That can never be allowed to happen.

No matter what it costs…

A brand new psychological thriller that will keep you guessing till the end! Perfect for fans of Sue Watson, Nina Manning, Shalini Boland

Wowsers what an utterly chilling and spine tingling thriller. Just epic, awesome and down right amazing! can you tell I loved it?

Anyway on to the book. These ladies are excellent writers and make the perfect thriller writing combo. They’ve created a superb plot that just flows at the right pace. One minute you’re reading about a family and all the usual ups and downs of divorce, new step parent, teenage angst and a bitter ex wife. Alice was blindsided by husband wanting, for her a sudden divorce and now here he is about to marry his much younger and beautiful cliché wife to be Norah. Then Alice finds out they are trying for IVF and Alice loses the plot and begins to act in a very odd manner. Why is Alice so flustered by the news?

Every single character is wonderfully crafted with good bits and bad bits, like us all, which really makes them all believable and you start to think, “crikey there by the grace of God go I” How easy it would be to get caught up in the dreadful situation Alice finds herself. The pace picks up steadily and boy by the end you’re left reeling from the final reveal! Its truly outstanding and you never see it coming. Brilliant book that I urge everyone to read.
