For her closest neighbour, Clara, the incident triggers memories she thought she'd put behind her. As the town's scrutiny turns in on her, her own suspicions about what really happened that night quickly grow. Meanwhile, the neighbourhood's newest addition, Izzy, is determined not to jump to any conclusions.But across the lawns, appearances can be deceiving, and the most beautiful houses can hide the ugliest secrets. A truly gripping domestic thriller of friendship, manipulation and betrayal that fans of Desperate Housewives, The Family Next Door and Liane Moriarty's HBO hit Big Little Lies have been waiting for.***************What readers are saying 'Twisty and engrossing, this is one thriller you don't want to miss!''I was gripped and glued to the page' 'I was drawn into the story from the first page and felt like these women were MY friends' 'What a clever page-turner with some great character dynamics and a few twisties that sucked me in and kept me guessing through to the end'
