They all have opinions. They all have secrets. ' Funny, moving, insightful and so sharp on the politics of the school gate and beyond. Couldn' t put it down. ' Laura Marshall, bestselling author of Friend Request In a small town like West Burntridge, it should be impossible to keep a secret. Rachel Saunders knows gossip is the price you pay for a rural lifestyle and outstanding schools. The latest town scandal is her divorce - and the fact that her new girlfriend has moved into the family home. Laura Spence lives in a poky bedsit on the wrong side of town. She and her son Max don' t really belong, and his violent tantrums are threatening to expose the very thing she' s trying to hide. When the local school introduces a new inclusive curriculum, Rachel and Laura find themselves on opposite sides of a fearsome debate. But the problem with having your nose in everyone else' s business is that you often miss what is happening in your own home.

I loved it' Erin Kelly ' The characters are so untrustworthy you wont know what to believe, but you won' t put it down till you' ve found out.

' Nancy Tucker, author of The First Day of Spring' An astute and gripping page-turner that takes many hot topics and examines them from every angle . . . A story with a lot of heart, a fantastic cast and it is unlike anything else I' ve read. Genuinely original and utterly compelling. ' NJ Mackay, author of Found HerPraise for Exquisite' Addictive, terrifying and beautifully written, Exquisite is up there with the best psychological thrillers I' ve ever read. Fucking awesome' Chris Whitaker' Sarah Stovell writes beautifully' Essie Fox' Beautifully written and perfectly twisted, I was sucked deeply into the intertwined worlds of Alice and Bo and found myself reading through my fingers, compelled yet terrified at what the outcome might be. . .
