Publisher's Summary

The Hero
Libby Hall never really wanted to be noticed. But after she saves the children in her care from a fire, she finds herself headline news. And horrified by the attention. It all reminds her of what happened nine years ago. The last time she saw her best friend alive.

The Swap
Which is why the house swap is such a godsend. Libby and her husband, Jamie, exchange their flat in Bath for a beautiful, secluded house in Cornwall. It's a chance to heal their marriage - to stop its secrets tearing them apart.

The Hideaway
But this stylish Cornish home isn't the getaway they'd hoped for. They make odd, even disturbing discoveries in the house. It's so isolated - yet Libby doesn't feel entirely alone. As if she's being watched.

Is Libby being paranoid?
What is her husband hiding?
And as the secrets and lies come tumbling out, is the past about to catch up with them?

Critic Reviews

"Grippingly claustrophobic and unpredictable on every page: perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train." ( Marie Claire)
"Brilliant. Twisty, exciting yet so very real." (Gillian McAllister, The Sunday Times, best-selling author of Everything but the Truth)

Excellent

Loved it. Engrossed from beginning to end with all the twists and turns. Very cleverly written. The narrator's performance was the icing on the cake AND the cherry on top.

Truly awful

This has to be the worst book I have bought since signing up to Audible. The convoluted plot is completely ridiculous and has more holes than a rusty bucket. To make matters worse, the narration was dreadful, with the story delivered in the style of an aggressive teen who would prefer to be somewhere else, doing something else. The accents were appalling and no effort was made to differentiate between the two female protagonists, making it worse again. I will not be buying a book that involves this author or narrator again.

Cliched and predictable

The writing was full of cliches and was very disappointing. I think this must be aimed at the chic lit genre. Returned after 2 chapters for refund.

Not Bad

The story is ok, bit slow. The narrator was ok but she needs to be able to do Male and female sounding voices, as sometimes I didnt know who was who
but over all not a bad story
