Your Life for Mine

 

Meet Beth Turner.

 

From the outside she looks like any other thirty-three-year-old woman, with a gorgeous house and beautiful daughter.

 

But Beth has a secret that has haunted her past for as long as she can remember. A secret that only those closest to her know. Aged seven, she almost drowned on a family holiday… and a stranger died saving her life. Survivors guilt has been the defining characteristic of her life ever since.

 

So, when Beth receives a threatening text message from an anonymous number on the way to her surprise birthday party, she knows her time is up.

 

Enjoy your birthday, Beth. It’ll be your last.

 

As she arrives at her house, there’s only one thing she knows for certain. Someone at the party wants her dead.

The Secret Sister

 

Can you trust a sister who is a stranger?

 

Ella Matthews has it all. A beautiful house, a charming husband and a precious baby daughter – her life has pretty much turned out exactly as she planned.

 

But when Ella’s mother tragically dies, her perfect life starts to crack. Her mother had been harbouring a life-long secret. Ella has a sister – an older sister – called Colleen.

 

Excited by the thought of no longer being an only child, Ella can’t wait to find her. But Colleen has a whirlwind past of her own. Desperate to escape her troubles, she is ready to go to any length to start afresh.

 

As their paths collide, someone is keeping secrets… and when Colleen mysteriously disappears without notice, Ella can’t help but question if she should have started looking for her at all…

'Intense, quick-paced, has well developed characters

& a plot that’s full of twists. Once I started reading, I could not put it down!!’ 5 stars, Netgalley Reviewer
