Lizzie lives in the Lake District with her partner, Jonty, and his teenage son, Sam. Though she's only ten years older than her stepson, their set-up works. They are a family.
Then Sam becomes sullen and withdrawn, and Lizzie suspects something sinister is going on.
But no one will believe her.
They think Lizzie is to blame.
Are they right?
This is a brilliantly atmospheric domestic thriller about dark rumours wreaking havoc on a happy family. Perfect for readers of The Family Next Door and The Other Woman.

I honestly couldn't put this down. An original storyline with the main theme of grooming though not the obvious older male, young girl. Well worth a read.
an enjoyable read thanks to Head of Zeus via NetGalley. Something different with likeable and very unlikable characters that draw you into their story and lives.
I loved this novel. It was easy for the reader to put themselves into the situation of the main character and to feel the frustration of not being believed or understood. It also had a sensible ending rather than an overly dramatic one, which made the story plausible and realistic. Highly recommended. I will buy this for several friends for Christmas, because I want to discuss it with someone else! Thank you to the author, publisher and NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
