Waterstones Says

A dream of a perfect family turns into a nightmare of deception and fear in this clever thriller exploring marital friction and dangerous obsessions. Gripping, chillingly plausible and fraught with suspense, Happy Ever After is a deeply satisfying piece of domestic noir.

She made one terrible mistake... and someone isn't going to let her forget it.

Naomi seems to have everything. A beautiful daughter, a gorgeous house, a perfect life.

Behind the scenes, though, she and her husband are drifting from one another and struggling to conceive their second child.

Then Naomi meets a parent at her daughter's nursery. Sean understands her, or so she thinks. Looking for a connection, for a friend, Naomi makes a terrible mistake.

Weeks later, when Naomi attempts to contact Sean, he has disappeared without a trace. But it becomes clear that someone else knows her secret. Someone who wants to make sure she never forgets what she did.

A twisting, addictive thriller about desire and deceit, perfect for fans of Apple Tree Yard, Blood Orange and Our House.
