Publisher's Summary

A gripping psychological thriller with a stunning twist

‘She hasn’t told you, has she?’ He squeezed his eyes shut. She watched the muscles of his jaw tense. ‘I’m not your father.’

He was there for her first steps. He helped with her homework, and took her for ice cream at weekends. And then, two days before her ninth birthday, Martha’s father walked out. She never knew what went wrong, but she and her mother, Fran, never saw or heard from him again. 

Fifteen years later, Martha and Fran live in a remote, pretty cottage in Cornwall. Fran paints illustrations for children’s books, while Martha trains as an animal nurse at the local vet’s surgery. 

But then Martha sees a strange message on her mother’s phone - from her father. Desperate for answers, she tracks him down. 

Except when they come face-to-face, she isn’t ready for the brutal truth. 

He isn’t her father. 

Her mother has been telling lies. 

And not just about who her real father is....

A gripping psychological thriller for fans of Paula Hawkins, Shalini Boland, and C. L. Taylor.

A story to get lost in

This was a happy book for me because it took me away from the reality of fires and smoke and loss of power. Very good involved story with an excellent narrator.

light reading

The story line was pretty good, although, I wanted a bit more of Beth's back story. The plot twist were light and didn't drag on and the ending gives closure.

Too tedious in parts

This book is a bit tedious at times but have to finish it to find out the ending. Could be a good storyline if it hadn’t been dragged out so much. If a book grips me I listen all day and night when I have spare time but not this one. Just my opinion but others might like this book as the storyline is good.
