Haviing read and reviewed Befriended and Tell Me Why by this author, I am looking forward to reading this one.


Lena Farnham has it all: a job she loves, a wonderful husband, a huge house, and a baby about to arrive. She’s the happiest she’s ever been, and she can’t believe how lucky she is.

Unfortunately, Lena’s luck is about to run out.

Someone is following her, and not only that – they’re leaving frightening messages, and threatening her perfect life. Even worse? Her husband Sean doesn’t believe any of it.

When the baby finally arrives, however, Lena’s follower is the least of her worries. Everything in her life is about to change, but why? What did she do to deserve this? And what isn’t Sean telling her?

Lena embarks on a journey to uncover the lies, deceit, and betrayal from the one person she loves and trusts the most… her husband.

Even the most perfect people can have dark pasts – and even darker secrets.


With my arms laden with emporium bags, I walk through the middling crowd of Friday shoppers when, all of a sudden, a strange, creeping sensation runs up my spine, and in an instant I remember the shadow lurking in the trees of my garden earlier. It’s the same feeling I’d had then – when I was sure I was being watched. Suddenly, I panic. I can feel eyes boring into my back. I walk briskly through the crowd to mingle in, and then turn sharply to look over my shoulder. The shadow darts behind a pillar. Are they following me? What should I do? I hear my thudding heartbeat as I walk towards the car park, footsteps pounding on the tarmac behind me – but I don’t dare look. I freeze on the spot. The pounding stops and I take a deep breath as I turn around. There’s no one there. Was someone actually following me? As I walk towards my car I try to clear my mind, try to think more clearly. It was probably no one. Not everything has to be sinister, I remind myself. Maybe it was just my overactive imagination.
