What would you do if your best friend stole your life? A new psychological thriller from the author of Just What Kind of Mother Are You?
Natty and Sean Wainwright are happily married. Rock solid in fact. So when Natty's oldest friend, Eve Dalladay, appears – just as their daughter collapses on a school trip in France – Natty has no qualms about leaving Eve with Sean to help out at home.
Two weeks later and Natty finds Eve has slotted into family life too well. Natty's husband has fallen in love with Eve. He's sorry, he tells her, but their marriage is over.
With no option but to put a brave face on things for the sake of the children, Natty embarks on building a new life for herself.
And then she receives the note.
Eve has done this before, more than once, and with fatal consequences...

...and your enemies closer, so the saying goes. A deliciously nasty story of a marriage wrecked by a best friend turned predator.
Natty and Sean run a boutique hotel in the Lake District. She is a Type A personality with an obsession with fastidiousness and efficiency and runs her family like a sergeant major. He is all laid back charm and boyish good looks and wishes his wife made more time for sex. So when Natty is called away urgently and her best friend Eve offers to stay and look after the kids, you know what's going to happen. Except that there are plenty more twists to the tale ahead.
Crisp as new bed sheets, taut as a fresh facelift, this is a satisfyingly twisted story of malice and havoc.
