When I first set eyes on Westhill House with its breath-taking views of the sea I knew it was the perfect place for a fresh start.
The place may be falling apart, but it can be fixed with some tender loving care. And as Jack and I work to repair this beautiful building, maybe we can repair our relationship too. Maybe we can make Westhill House a refuge from all the tragedies that came before.
Lori has come to Westhill House for shelter too. She says it used to be a place where women went for safety. How can I turn her away, when violence waits for her outside these high walls?
But the longer Lori stays, the more time Jack spends away. And the more she helps me restore the house, the more secrets start to be revealed.
Like the children’s drawings under the wallpaper in the back bedroom.
The hidden papers underneath the floorboards in the turret room.
But why does Lori know so much about Westhill House, if she’s never been here before?
What does she really need protection from?
And now I’ve invited her into my dream house, is there any escape for either of us?
A gripping, spine-chilling read brimming with secrets and lies. If you loved The Girl on the Train, The Wife Between Us or The Woman in the Window then this dark, twisting psychological thriller from Amazon chart bestseller Jess Ryder is guaranteed to have you gripped.

It was a good book, no doubt. I never expected the ending.. But with that being said, it was very tedious to read. This book drags on forever.
