Summary

In this compelling thriller from best-selling author of Wall of Silence, she thought she was the perfect mother - until the new neighbours moved in.

Emma and Dele’s dreams came true nine years ago when they adopted their daughter, Isla. It felt like fate, like they were meant to find each other, and now they’re living the life they always wanted. But then one day a new family moves into Forest Grove - and Emma can’t shake the chilling feeling that the wife looks just like Isla’s birth mother.

Emma tells herself that this sophisticated stranger can’t possibly be the troubled woman she remembers from the adoption. But as they get to know each other and it becomes clear that Tatjana has a special interest in Isla, her suspicions grow.

When small things start to go wrong and her parenting abilities are brought into question, Emma feels undermined, turning to her sister Harriet for support. But things only spiral further when secrets from her past suddenly resurface.

With rumours swirling, Emma begins to doubt herself. Could Tatjana be Isla’s birth mother? And, with everything that’s happening, is Emma the right person to be raising her daughter at all?

Good story worth reading. Awful lead character

This was a great story but slipped a bit towards the end. Just couldn't feel any sympathy for Emma. She was so wishy washy. Seemed to spend most of her time feeling sorry for herself and in tears.

A lot of promise…

Whilst this book had a lot of promise, it never really fully delivered. For me, the storyline was improbable and characters not fully developed. Having said that, it’s a fun quick read. Perfect beach reading!

Good Listen

Enjoyed this book, was worth a listen. Good story and relatable characters.

A Straight forward story that was easy to follow.

A little predictable though, but still enjoyable

Terrible Ending

This book leads and builds up to something you want to believe and in the last 30 minutes or so, it DROPS THE ENTIRE BALL. it could've been WAAAY better than what was given. I liked the storyline but they need to redo the ending.

Good read

The story was well written and kept me captivated all the way. I felt both main characters sounded to simular. it might of came across better if the killer was thinking instead talking to his daughter the whole time.
