Summary

A gripping story about new friendships, motherhood and heart-breaking secrets....

New mums. Old Secrets....

The gripping new novel from the author of The Stylist.         

Aisha Moore is eight months pregnant. She’s thrilled, and a little scared. Not least because her husband Jason hasn’t quite wrapped his head around the fact.

Lucy is having her first child too. She has finally got her wish – although the circumstances aren’t quite what she had hoped. Oscar will be a great dad though, won’t he?

When the two women join the same baby group, they quickly become friends and before long they’re confiding in each other.

Only there’s one thing Lucy hasn’t told Aisha. And while a baby may turn your life upside-down, a secret this big will change everything.

Poorly written, narration terrible.

I worked the storyline out in minutes. I quite enjoyed the context of the plot but the writing was poor and leaving nothing to the imahination. The woman who narrated Aishas chapters was the the worst I've ever heard, lacked any intonation or even fluency. I nearly gave up on this because the narrator spoiled it so much but I listened to the end because I didnt want to waste my money, also because I hoped there would be a fascinating plot twist ( there wasn't).

Book was good Author was annoying

Enjoyed this book in itself but the author kept pausing mid word which was really annoying and distracting.
