He gave her everything. But can she trust him?

'Get ready for a creepy, twisty ride' Heat

Lauren can't wait to leave London for a fresh start in the countryside with her new partner Paul and his two young children.

She never thought she'd be so lucky. A dream glass house in the woods, a ready-made family, a second chance. But as dark rumours swirl about their new home, Lauren begins to question their happily-ever-after. When they met, she was at her most vulnerable. She would trust Paul with her life. But should she?

With all the ingredients needed to be turned into a cracking ITV thriller, get ready for a creepy, twisty ride - Heat

What She Left Behind is a masterpiece in the suspense thriller genre. Sly, tense, and heartbreaking in equal measure. I absolutely loved it - L V Matthews

A claustrophobic and very clever domestic noir thriller with a great sense of setting, believable characters and an excellent twist - I raced through this - Catherine Cooper
