Everyone brings baggage to a new relationship.

When Alex met Natalie she changed his life. After the tragic death of his first wife, which left him a single parent to teenage daughter Jade, he’s determined to build a happy family.

But his new-found happiness is shattered when the family home is gutted by fire and his loyalties are unexpectedly tested. Jade insists she saw a man in the house on the night of the fire; Natalie denies any knowledge of such an intruder.

Alex is faced with an impossible choice: to believe his wife or his daughter? And as Natalie’s story unravels, Alex realises that his wife has a past he had no idea about, a past that might yet catch up with her.

But this time, the past could be deadly . . .

Engrossing, original and hugely enjoyable.

Emma Curtis, author of THE NIGHT YOU LEFT

A mesmerising, beautifully-written domestic thriller that really stands out from the crowd. I flew through it.

Mark Edwards, author of FOLLOW YOU HOME

A menacing new thriller . . . Expect to be gripped!

That's Life!

Beautifully written and well-crafted, the characters of Natalie, Rachel, Sadie and Alex stayed with me long after I finished reading and I resented anything that stopped me from getting back to them. I read it in two days, though I would have read it in one if I could!

Sandie Jones, author of THE OTHER WOMAN

A fabulous read.
