She thinks your life is perfect. She thinks you don’t deserve it.

Your job
Amy is more than happy to offer the daughter of an old friend work experience at her London magazine. Josie is young and ambitious. She just needs a foot in the door.

Your home
When Josie arrives, she swiftly makes herself indispensable at work and at home. And when childcare falls through before a long-awaited university reunion in Provence, it begins to look as if Josie may be staying longer than Amy had bargained for.

Your husband
In the heat of Provence, Josie’s presence starts to unsettle Amy, especially around her husband. As cracks begin to appear in Amy’s perfect life, she cannot shake the feeling that the family friend may not be a friend at all…

 

All I can say is WOW!!

Tasmina Perry has written a stylish, gripping and creepy read that I highly recommend.

Amy has the perfect life, a wonderful handsome husband, a fabulous glamourous job in the world magazine editing and trusty friends. She has long left behind her humble roots and has made a success of her life.

Revenge, obsession and accusations arise when Amy meets up with an old best friend Karen, and offers to give Karen’s daughter a chance to work at the magazine in the form of unpaid work experience.

This is a chilling novel.

As Amy’s life starts to unravel, the tension mounts and the suspense is thrilling.

Each page gives a insight into the magazine world and I absolutely loved it. It is a novel of pure escapism, but all the while, it is a stomach churning twisty read. It is a little predictable and I did guess correctly along the way, but the story sneaks up on the reader, and I for one truly enjoyed it.
