Description

‘Whoa!!! I stayed up till 6am reading this book! I needed to know the ending! This book was TWISTED. In the best and worst way… Jaw-dropping.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

You’d be lost without her…

She’s the shoulder you cry on when the father of your children disappears.
She’s the person you turn to when he comes back, begging for forgiveness.
She’s by your side when you discover his guilty secrets.
She helps rock your babies to sleep when they cry.
She’s your friend when you have no one else.
She’s the woman upstairs, whose feet you hear treading above as you drift off at night, thankful you aren’t alone.

But what if you’re about to lose everything because of her?

One of the most twisted, shocking, heart-stopping psychological thrillers you’ll ever read! Fans of K.L. Slater, The Wife Between Us and The Girl on the Train, prepare to be kept up way past your bedtime as you race through this addictive page-turner.

    This is a gripping book but it does contain distressing scenes of child neglect and abuse and also that of babies. Having children myself I was glad to just get to the end of it.
  • Fabulous read

    Oh my this book left me breathless at times. I figured out very early on in the book what was goofing on, however at times I found myself wanting to get hold of Katie and shake her to see sense. For a book to give me that it’s got to be good. Katie finds out she’s pregnant. To add to the shock it’s twins. Her situation means that her business man partner Ian has to step up to the plate.. He finds then a home. A large family house in London. However, on arriving at the property this is where her problems being. In the cafe opposite she meets Paula who befriends here and by chance she’s a doula. When Ian goes missing, Paula steps in to help Paula. But who is the friend and who is the foe? An absolutely fantastic read xxxxx
