Perfect families, perfect houses, perfect lives.

Single mum Jane has just moved to town with her little boy - and a secret she's been carrying for five years.

On the first day on the school run she meets Celeste, so beautiful she makes the world stop and stare.

And then there's Madeline - a tour de force who remembers everything and forgives no one.

The three women become friends, while always keeping their secrets under wraps.

But then a minor incident involving their children spirals out of control . . .

It was always going to end in tears, but how did it end in murder?

  • Fantastic

    By Mrs Howells
    Thoroughly enjoyed reading this! I normally enjoy holding physical books in my hand but this time I was glad I bought it to read on my phone as I picked it up everywhere and any time I was bored. Kept me guessing all the way through and I guessed wrong! Recommend it and will be buying this for my sister too.
  • A good read!

    It normally takes me months to read a book. Not this one - it was effortless to read. Great story, great characters and so well written. I found myself reading every chance I could get and read it in a week!

    Hard to get into? God I was away from page 1. I love all Liane's books. She's my favourite author by miles. I owe my boss an apology because I've been sneakily reading this all week instead of working. Couldn't put it down.
  • Good one
