Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Charts bestseller.

She’s a total stranger. But she knows who you are...

Suzi did a bad thing. She’s paying for it now, pregnant, scared, and living in an isolated cottage with her jealous husband, Nick.

When Nora moves into the only house nearby, Suzi is delighted to have a friend. So much so that she’s almost tempted to tell Nora her terrible secret. But there’s more to Nora than meets the eye. It’s impossible - does she already know what Suzi did?

Meanwhile, Elle spends her days in her perfect home, fixated on keeping up appearances. But when her husband betrays her, it unravels a secret going all the way back to her childhood. She’ll do whatever it takes to hold on to him, even if that means murder. After all, she’s done it before...

Caught up in their own secrets and lies, these strangers will soon realise they have more in common than they could ever have imagined. When a shocking event brings them together, their lives will never be the same again.

Unexpected twist

If you think this is just about a mistreated wife and an affair - think again. Yes this is at the heart of the story but with a twist.

It is also an exploration of the power of women to connect and support each other where circumstances warrant it.

Loved it

Karen Cass performance was fantastic! The book wonderful and I couldn’t put it down. Whilst the twists were obvious to me the journey was delicious. Highly recommend.

Ugh

Tedious, soap opera. None of the characters are likeable and the story is annoying -I just wanted it to get good (still waiting)

Decent thriller

A good listen. It did get a bit confusing with changing names all the time, and all the male voices sounded the same however, I couldn't stop listening towards the end as it got better and better.

Entertaining

Whilst this book did keep me engaged, the domestic thriller angle, jilted wife seeking revenge isn't an original concept. The plot twists were entertaining but not overly exciting or unpredictable. Suzie's character is difficult to connect with, being a self centred idiot most of the time.
Karen Cass gives a great performance to the point that one could almost believe it's narrated by two different women.
