I’m no angel. I did things I should never have done. But your ex-wife didn’t leave you because of me. She didn’t abandon her little girl because of a couple of love notes in your jeans pocket. She left because she’s twisted. And she’s not finished yet. You have to believe me. If you don’t, there’s no knowing what she’ll do next…

Becoming a stepmother is the best thing that ever happened to me. My favorite part of every day is picking Charlie up from school, watching her little rucksack bounce behind her as she skips over for a hug. After a few rocky months of panic attacks when her mother deserted her, Charlie is flourishing. But the day Charlie’s mother Bronwyn returns without warning—showering Charlie with gifts and making promises she can’t keep—fear ripples through me.

When I raise my concerns, no one wants to listen. Everyone loves Bronwyn, and I sound like the jealous new wife. But they don’t know her like I do. They don’t know the dangerous lengths she will go to get what she wants.

But nothing is more important to me than Charlie’s safety.

And they don’t know just how far I will go to protect that little girl…

A completely gripping and totally addictive psychological thriller that will send shivers down your spine. Fans of The Girl on the Train, The Wife Between Us or The Other Wife will devour this twisty page-turner in one sitting!
