Synopsis:

The perfect wife. A fairytale family. Don’t believe your eyes…
Jeanie and Matthew are a happily married couple who both have teenage children from previous relationships.

No one said it would be easy to raise a blended family under one roof but Jeanie and Matthew are strong. They will make it work.

And whilst Jeanie’s step-daughter Scarlett rejects her, Jeanie will just have to try harder to win her over.

But Jeanie has a past. A terrible secret she thought she’d buried a long time ago. And now, it’s coming to the surface, threatening to destroy her new marriage.

Someone is playing a terrifying game on Jeanie and she must put a stop to it once and for all.

After all, a fairytale needs a happy ending … doesn’t it?

A compelling, dark and twisty psychological thriller that will grip fans of Behind Closed Doors, Between You and Me and The Teacher.

Review:

I love love loved this story of family drama, loosely based on Snow White. There are so many secrets and shady characters and twists and turns. I love when a book can keep you guessing, and change your guess multiple times throughout. And can we talk for one second about the amazing female thriller writers that come out of the UK? Another author to add to my list of books to look out for.

Trigger alert: there is some violence toward animals.

Thank you, Netgalley, for a copy of his book in exchange for an honest review.

4 out of 5 stars.
