Publisher's Summary

The brilliant new psychological thriller from bestseller Valerie Keogh.

She’s in your home....

Leigh Simons can’t say for sure what made her do it. A moment of madness, perhaps, but when the young, loud and gorgeous waitress at her favorite coffee shop reveals she is homeless, Leigh offers her the empty room in her house.

In your head....

Gina is the perfect lodger; Leigh, lonely and frustrated with her life, becomes infatuated with the woman—her boldness, her zeal. If only Leigh could be more like Gina....

And missing without trace.

So when Leigh returns from a work trip she’s shocked to find Gina missing. Where could the young woman have gone...and why?

Leigh fears that something terrible has happened—why else would Gina leave her?

But as she sets out to find her missing lodger, what Leigh discovers changes everything she knows about Gina...and her own life, too.

Don't miss the brand new thriller by Valerie Keogh. Perfect for fans of Sue Watson, Shalini Boland and K.L. Slater.

SKIP IT

Boring made worse by the narration. Story was OK, narration was distracting. A definite pass my opinion. Hard to get through.

a Page Turner with loads of twists

An exciting read with many unforeseen twists & surprizes. No good deed goes unpunished is very apt here.

Disappointing ending

Ending was definitely anti climatic and fell way short. Left with a lot of loose threads.

If you need a book to read

If you need a book to read and read it it’s really not the best book I really am not sure why even finished it but I found it kind of boring and couldn’t wait to get to the end

painfully bad

This is a terrible, poorly written book. The plot is thin, the characters are completely one dimensional, and the writing is amateur.

Disappointing story …

Unfortunately not a good listen it was long winded and not at all believable! I had such high hopes and contagious listen hoping for more but alas weak ending
