On My Life

an unputdownable, moving, twisty thriller

By Angela Clarke

  • Paperback
  • £7.99

When a pregnant woman is imprisoned on suspicion of murder, she must fight to prove her innocence from behind bars...

Framed. Imprisoned. Pregnant.

Jenna thought she had the perfect life: a loving fiancé, a great job, a beautiful home. Then she finds her stepdaughter murdered; her partner missing.

And the police think she did it...

Locked up to await trial, surrounded by prisoners who'd hurt her if they knew what she's accused of, certain someone close to her has framed her, Jenna knows what she needs to do:

Clear her name
Save her baby
Find the killer

But can she do it in time?
