You’re living with a stranger. It’s your daughter.

Following a whirlwind romance, Rose and Chris’s marriage has been unshakeable for twenty years. But when Katie turns up on their doorstep, blonde, wide-eyed and beautiful, their perfect life threatens to crumble to pieces. Because Katie says she’s Chris’s long-lost daughter, the product of a forgotten summer fling.

Kind-hearted Rose invites Katie to stay, despite Chris’s protests. The poor girl has only just lost her mother – they can’t leave her out on the street. But soon after Katie moves in, strange things start happening. Someone crashes into a neighbour’s fence. An unexplained fire starts in the couple’s kitchen. And a family friend coming to visit disappears on the way to the house. Chris insists Katie has to go. But it’s Chris who won’t explain where he was at the time their friend went missing… 

The couple’s dream life seems to be turning into a nightmare. With dark secrets about Chris’s history with Katie’s mother coming to light, Rose no longer knows who to trust. Soon, she isn’t sure whether she’s invited a dangerous stranger into her home, or whether she’s been living with one all along…

A chilling thriller that will make you question everything you think you know about your loved ones. Fans of The Woman in the WindowThen She Was Gone and The Perfect Child won’t be able to put this book down.



Wow this book had me shook! I didn’t know what to believe, who to believe.. So full of secrets, lies, deception, betrayal, and revenge. This book will have you hooked as you read page after page.

Imagine having a happy life. You are married and have a teen daughter and your life is good. Suddenly by chance you meet a young woman who claims to be your daughter from a fling many years ago. What would you do?

I enjoyed this book as slowly everything is revealed bit by bit. We learn the truth, the lies, the deception, and boy is it juicy! If you love a good thriller then look no futher than this novel!

With a shocking ending that will leave you wanting more, this book will be a hit!


MY RATING: 4/5 stars
