The perfect daughter…
Jess Harper has spent her whole life trying to make her mum, Abigail happy and proud. And everything Jess does, from the clothes she wears, the job she has, the men she dates, are all approved by Abigail first.
The perfect boyfriend…
So when Jess announces that she has a new man in her life – plumber Adam – Abigail is less than impressed. ‘A plumber? Really, Jessica….’ Adam encourages Jess to break free from her mum’s manipulation, can’t she see what’s happening?
The perfect mother….
But Abigail is only doing these things to keep Jess safe, to protect her from getting hurt again…isn’t she?
Or the perfect liar?
Jess, caught in the middle, doesn’t know who to believe or trust. And then Adam vanishes without trace.
Now Jess is the police’s prime suspect and they want to know if Jess really is as perfect as she seems….
A gripping new psychological thriller for fans of Sue Watson, Shalini Boland and S.E.Lynes
Jess’ life is pretty routine – she goes to work, then visits her Mother for dinner and then goes home, and does it all again the next day. Until she meets Adam……Her Mother is less than impressed that she’s dating a ‘plumber’ and. doesn’t like the changes she sees in Jess. And then Adam goes missing…..and Jess ends up as the prime suspect. But is she responsible? She doesn’t know who to trust or believe anymore….not even herself…..
This definitely bought our a range of emotions in me! Most of the time throughout the book I was feeling pretty angry at a certain character…..I absolutely loved Jess and hated the way she felt about herself. Like her friend Karen, I just wanted her to see the best in herself but it’s just not ingrained in her. She’s had a lot of things happen in her life, but she still tries to be upbeat and see the best in others (just not in herself!). Some of the characters you will love, one most certainly you will hate, and others will confuse you……
The story definitely kept me turning the pages. Although I was feeling pretty angry, I wanted to continue and see what happened…..There were a few mysteries that needed to be solved and a certain someone who I really wanted to see get their comeuppance……And the twists in this were brilliant. Some I had expected but there were also one or two that completely caught me off guard…..
So if you’re looking for a new psychological thriller that will get your emotions going and bring you some fab twists, then check this out!
