Who do you trust when everything is a lie?

Wanted: full-time, live-in help for expectant mother. Must be organised, friendly and willing to do anything.

Rachel Rodrigues, known as RR, shares her life on social media with her thousands of fans. From her beautiful house with its polished wood floors to her carefully planned exercise regime to her stylish clothes, everything is designed to inspire others.

Now she’s having a baby. She’s already put together her birth plan and her special playlist, and chosen a lovely light cream paint for the nursery.

Rachel thinks wide-eyed, innocent Abbie is the perfect person to help her with her new arrival.

Abbie, Rachel’s devoted follower, thinks Rachel’s life is perfect.

They’re both wrong.

But how far will they each go to hide the truth?

From the bestselling author of Her Husband’s Lover, this is a truly gripping story about how far people will go to find a family. Filled with tension and twists to keep you glued to every page, it is perfect for fans of Ruth Ware, Shari LaPena and The Girl on the Train.

Julia Crouch:
Julia started off as a theatre director and playwright. While her children were growing up, she swerved into graphic design. After writing and illustrating two children’s books for an MA, she discovered that her great love was writing prose. The picture books were deemed too dark for publication, so, to save the children, she turned instead to writing for adults. Her first book, Cuckoo, was published in 2011, and she has been writing what she calls her Domestic Noir novels ever since. She also writes for TV and teaches on the Crime Writing MA at the University of East Anglia. She has three grown up children and lives in Brighton with her husband and two cats, Keith and Sandra.
