BE DRAWN INTO THE EMOTIONALLY GRIPPING FAMILY DRAMA PACKED WITH LONG-BURIED SECRETS

'I couldn't stop reading until the early hours. Totally gripping'
5***** READER REVIEW

'I just thought you should know who you're married to . . .'
______

Romy and Michael had it all. 30 years of marriage, two wonderful sons and a beautiful home.

Until a letter arrives containing a shocking accusation, and everything falls apart.

Fleeing to an idyllic countryside village to find time to think, Romy finds herself drawn to Finch, a handsome stranger with a tragic past. Is this a chance to start again?

But then the phone rings:

Michael is in hospital. He says he needs her help . . .

From the No. 1 bestselling author of Thursdays in the Park, The Lie will captivate fans of Susan Lewis, Amanda Prowse, and Ali Mercer's His Secret Family.

**Hilary Boyd's addictive new family drama, THE AFFAIR, is available to pre-order now**
