MEDIA REVIEWS
Fans of BBC drama The Replacement will lap up this taut and suspenseful tale * Heat *
I was blown away. The Girlfriend is the most marvellous psychological thriller . . . I couldn't put it down and kept sneaking upstairs to read another few pages . . . Michelle Frances is a writer we're going to hear a great deal about. Please read this genuinely exciting novel -- Jilly Cooper
The Girlfriend is a taut psychological thriller, the evil chillingly drawn. Every character is layered and beautifully twisted. Makes me consider running background checks on any potential spouses my children bring home! -- Karen Rose
Impressively compelling debut; the tension positively oozes from the pages . . . Keeps the reader on a knife-edge throughout * The Press Association *
A juicy thriller and utterly compulsive reading -- Jenny Blackhurst, author of How I Lost You
Brilliantly twisty, a sharp, sinister and addictive read * Sunday Mirror *
