‘Wow!!! What an absolute cracker of a book!!!… I just loved everything about it… An absolutely addictive page turner that kept my heart in my throat on the edge of the seat… A compelling, page turning, mind blowing psychological thriller.’ Bookworm86 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
You thought you’d always be safe there… you were wrong.
Carly had thought they’d always live there. The beautiful Cornish cliffside house they’d taken on as a wreck, that Mark had obsessively re-designed and renovated – a project that had made him famous. It was where they’d raised their children, where they’d sat cosily on the sofa watching storms raging over the sea below. It was where they’d promised to keep each other’s secrets…
Until now. Because Mark has fallen in love. With someone he definitely shouldn’t have. Someone who isn’t Carly. And suddenly their family home doesn’t feel like so much of a safe haven.
Carly thinks forever should mean forever though: it’s her home and she’ll stay there. Even the dark family secrets it contains feel like they belong to her. But someone disagrees. And, as threats start to arrive at her front door, it becomes clear, someone will stop at nothing. Because someone wants to demolish every last thing that makes Carly feel safe. Forever.
An utterly unputdownable psychological thriller about what lies are hidden in the most beautiful homes. Perfect for fans of Date Night, Gone Girl and The Woman in the Window.

I enjoyed this book but the end doesn’t live up to the build up.
Excessive use of the word “giggling” when describing characters you’re supposed to like, making me get annoyed with them.
Sue Watson has done it again. Just brilliant! Sue has this knack of writing thrillers where I just think, one more chapter, and before I know it, I have read most of the book in one sitting so I just continue! Never mind the housework, I need to finish the book!
Carly and Mark appear to have the perfect marriage to everyone, especially in the world of television, where their “Forever Home” has become a famous tv series. Now the US want to continue the series, which means a massive financial deal for them.
Unfortunately, Mark is not all he seems and he falls in love with another woman. This is where secrets and lies threaten to be exposed. Without going into the storyline too much, can I just suggest you read it. I am sure you won’t be disappointed. If you have read Sue’s books before, you will know why I recommend this. If you haven’t, then give it a go.
The characters are all very believable, which is another thing Sue does really well. Carly is an absolute gem but I am not sure how she has put up with Mark for 25 years. I certainly wouldn’t. As for his new lover, she was the most annoying character and I found myself instantly disliking her and getting frustrated with both her and Mark.
The story dealt well with family relationships, not just romantic ones, but parent / child relationships and friendships too. Who can be trusted? Who has been keeping secrets for many years? Can you really trust those closest to you?
There was a surprise ending, which I most certainly hadn’t seen coming, but I was really pleased with.
Thank you to netgalley, Bookouture and the author for an arc.
