She has never approved of you. But it’s when her body is found the secrets truly begin to come out …
From the moment Lucy met her husband’s mother, Diana, she used to be kept at arm’s length. Diana used to be exquisitely polite, and perfectly friendly, but Lucy knew that she used to be not what Diana envisioned. Even so, Lucy wanted so much to please her new better half’s mother.
That used to be five years ago.
Now, Diana has been found dead, a suicide note near her body. Diana claims that she no longer wanted to live as a result of a battle with cancer.
But the autopsy finds no cancer.
The autopsy does find traces of poison and suffocation.
Everyone in the Circle of relatives is hiding something. But what? And where will the secrets stop?
With Lucy’s secrets getting deeper and her relationship with her better half’s mother growing more complex as the pages turn, this new novel from Sally Hepworth is sure to add to her growing legion of fans.
