Publisher's summary

A perfect mother. A loving daughter. A secret that could destroy them both.

When I walk into my small family home after a long day at work, I find my mother in the living room, playing happily with my precious baby son, and my heart begins to race.

I’ve imagined this moment a thousand times. Who wouldn’t want their mother to meet their first grandchild? But I haven’t seen my mother for years, and there’s a good reason….

My son’s laughter and my husband’s tired eyes convince me to let her stay–give her another chance–and soon I start to soften. She’s so good with my little boy, and we appreciate the extra pair of hands.

But then one terrible night, I have to make a call no mother wants to make. As I clutch my boy going limp in my arms, waiting for the ambulance, I have to ask if I was wrong to trust my mother, or if I’ve misunderstood everything entirely…

Fans of The Girl on the Train, Gone Girl, and The Wife will absolutely love this gripping and addictive thriller. Her First Child will have you hooked from the start!

Critic reviews

"WOW, WOW and once again WOW!... Crackin’.... Utterly gripping.... Will keep you flipping the pages at a pace.... I felt I was right there with every situation, fully immersed in the drama. I loved this book.... 5 stars just doesn't do it justice. BRILLIANT!" (@nikiprestonbookreviewer, five stars)

"Ohhhhh I loved this. It genuinely kept me on edge and certainly kept me guessing.... Seriously, get in your cosy chair, hot drink, get those feet up and read this book!!" (@bookstagramshaz, five stars)
