The Life She Wants: Paula worries that her marriage to Tommy is hanging by a thread. Lately, it seems like he’s pulling away from her, and he keeps avoiding a much-needed conversation about finally having children. When Tommy suggests a cruise getaway for the two of them, Paula is thrilled. Until the couple meets beautiful Anna. From the moment Anna appears in their lives, things start to go wrong for Paula. She finds herself trapped in a sauna. Her hair is destroyed at the salon. Money goes missing from her cabin. At first, Paula thinks she’s paranoid in suspecting Anna is turning her dream holiday into a nightmare. But soon, it becomes clear that Paula may not be the only woman fighting for Tommy’s affections… How far will each woman go to get what they want?
The Eight-Year Lie: Jessica returns home one day to find her husband, Patrick, dead. The police have questions, and Jessica knows that once they hear the answers her fate may well be sealed. Eight years ago, Jessica was living another life and on the day she loses her husband, a ghost from the past reappears. Louise was her friend once, but that was then. Now, they are strangers. Except Louise seems very familiar – so familiar that it’s like peering into a mirror. Why would she go out of her way to look just like Jessica? Unless more than one person has been keeping deadly secrets…
The Other Son: Sara and her family needed a fresh start after a tragedy ruined many lives. They have found peace since arriving at their new home in the Kielder Forest National Park twelve months ago. That is, unless you count the dark cloud that has settled over them. Sara tries to pretend everything is normal, but in reality she is haunted by a devastating truth about one of her children. Travis has a reputation as a counsellor skilled at helping troubled teens. He sees Sara’s fragility, and believes that he can fix her and her eldest son. Both mother and son barely speak, but Travis thinks that if he could get close to Sara she would see that he can protect her and her family. But Sara doesn’t need protection and she will go to extreme lengths for her most precious boy…
These gripping tales of desire, revenge and family secrets are perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, Shalini Boland and K.L. Slater.
