The Parents : An utterly gripping psychological suspense thriller, Paperback / softback Book

The Parents : An utterly gripping psychological suspense thriller Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The other parents all seem so perfect. But it's not long before I realise: I should have never made friends with them...

I knew it wouldn't be easy for my kids to adjust when we moved to a tiny village where they didn't know a soul. But after the death of my husband, we needed a fresh start.

Suddenly, we're outsiders. I know the only way we'll be accepted is if I throw myself into my new life, so when my son joins a local club, I volunteer to help along with the other parents.

Before moving here, I didn't know people like this really existed; their lives seem too perfect to be real. Although my own life couldn't be more different, they welcome me into the fold. For the first time since my husband died, I feel like I made the right decision for my family...

That is until I overhear something that tells me these other parents aren't as perfect as they seem. Something that turns my world upside down again.

My secret has already ruined my life once. I thought the truth had died with my husband... I should have known that it wouldn't be buried for long.

A completely addictive page-turner about the secrets and lies hiding beneath seemingly perfect lives. Fans of Big Little Lies, Lisa Jewell and Louise Candlish will be absolutely hooked by this pacey read with a jaw-dropping twist you just won't see coming.
