Summary

The gripping new thriller from the Sunday Times top 20 best seller.

Her life was perfect. Until the video. 

Scarlett’s golden life suddenly unravels when someone sends a shocking video of her to everyone she knows. The only people who claim they haven’t seen it are the friends in her new mothers’ group: Cora, Emma and Asha.

Scarlett is forced to delve into her past to discover who is out to get her. But as her circle of trust gathers around her, she has to ask - are her friends as innocent as they seem?

A gripping listen about motherhood, secrets and lies, perfect for fans of Heidi Perks and B.A. Paris.

Critic reviews

"The Baby Group is a thought-provoking and utterly gripping story with twists and turns I couldn’t anticipate - no matter how hard I tried." (Nicola Rayner)

 "A rival to Gone Girl for its addictive, twisted plot." (Stylist)

"[A] successful foray into Girl on the Train territory, replete with jealousy, stalking, gaslighting and control-freakery." (The Guardian)

I worried it might never end

Another life falling apart narrative, and not well executed at that. The motivation of the persecutors is feeble and utterly uninteresting. Worst of all is the painfully long drawn out ending. I just wanted it to end from about midpoint. Don’t waste time on this one.

Gripping stuff and beautifully narrated

I was so hooked to this book that I finished it within a day! The storyline is great, with its twists and turns building up and such an interesting take on how your past can catch up with you – and how everyone's present is never as perfect as it seems.

There's also a great little extra story at the end that Caroline reads herself, she has a lovely voice!

Great

Loved the story and narration, the only thing that I didn’t like was how the sex work was portrayed as the worst thing in the world. It wouldn’t be for me but if someone was a sex worker they shouldn’t be considered a ‘bad’ person.
