The Truth About Her

The addictive and utterly gripping psychological thriller

When Callie rents a beach cottage in Whitstable, she doesn't expect for its owner to be glamorous influencer Vanessa Lowe.

Vanessa has it all. A beautiful home, a loyal husband, three perfect children, and a growing number of adoring online fans.

Callie has long admired her world from afar. But when Vanessa invites her in, the closer Callie looks, the more she suspects that there's more to Vanessa than meets the eye.

So when Vanessa's son disappears, Callie must question everything she knows. Is Vanessa a mother in despair? Or is she a woman who'll do whatever it takes to cover up the cracks...

  • A creepy, twisty page turner where nothing is as it seems. The Truth About Her is immersive and atmospheric, an incredible novel. I couldn't put it down. Highly recommended
