'Creepy and unsettling - a tense, toxic read that will wrong-foot you at every turn' CHARLOTTE DUCKWORTH
Two people can keep a secret . . . if one of them is dead.
Sisters Jo and Caroline are used to hiding things from each other. They've never been close - taking it in turns to feel on the outside of their family unit, playing an endless game of favourites.
Jo envies Caroline's life - things have always come so easy to her. Then a family inheritance falls entirely to Jo, and suddenly now Caroline wants what Jo has. Needs it, even.
But just how far will she go to get it?
You'll be riveted by the new psychological suspense from Nikki Smith - a gripping gut-punch of a novel . . .

Sister rivalry. Dark secrets and hidden truths. All those little nuances in family life, the subtle power struggles, the who is loved more, observed so cleverly. What a fantastic book even better than All in her head which I loved. Accomplished writing draws you deep into their world and the twists keep you hooked. Even in families who knows what goes on behind closed doors. Highly Recommended.
You’ll be riveted by the new psychological suspense from Nikki Smith – a gripping gut-punch of a novel . . . Firstly a big thank you to the publishers for my copy to review on netgalley. I absolutely loved her debut last year and she seems to have a theme of writing about topics that have impacted me personally. I whizzed through this last night in one go . Her writing has the ability to draw you in and capture your imagination pretty quickly. This focuses on the bonds between the family and the secrets we keep for ourselves and others. Nikki writes with talent and sensitivity around difficult topics and again very accurately from personal experience. Incredibly gripping and tense psychological thriller. Thought provoking and you will question what would i have done? I look forward to reading more from this author and wish her every success with this book. Published 8th march in ebook and 1st april in hardback.
This book was amazing! I was gripped from the first few pages! Loved how we seen the story from two characters perspectives. I was kept in suspense and guessing right to the end. Looking forward to more titles from this author. Brilliant read, I was sorry when I finished it!
What a gripping page turner! Somewhat dark with a sense on menace from the start. Full of tension as we meet Jo and Caroline and witness the simmering rivalry between the two sisters. Then the mother too. Does she love Caroline more than Jo? Both of these woman are flawed and are living with secrets, but I remember from this author's first book, All In Her Head, that nothing is ever as it first appears. The book touches on some difficult issues, but she does it with a sensitivity that makes everything that bit more relatable. Giving voice to both women and the clever use of alternating their chapters meant I raced through this book. When I was with Jo, I was worried what was happening to Caroline and vice versa. Some authors talk about how difficult it can be to write their second book, but this author makes it seem effortless. I really love her voice and am looking forward to what comes next. Thank you so much to Orion and to NetGalley for the chance to read this advanced copy.
