Review quote

"This book is Fatal Attraction with a twist and will grip you from beginning to end" Prima "Gasp in recognition at this cracking tale, narrated by a woman scorned... Sister, we've all been there..." Grazia "If you thought Fatal Attraction was the last word on the fury of a woman scorned, think again...acutely observed, wickedly funny and deftly plotted, with a satisfyingly smart twist at the end." Mail on Sunday "This is a brilliantly chilling read. All about obsession and delusion and the madness that love can induce. It had me up until 3am, gasping to the end" -- Jo Whiley "Will keep you guessing about its characters fates until the very end" Candis Magazineshow more
