But can I trust you?
Olivia is the domestic goddess who has won millions of followers by sharing her picture-perfect life online. And now she's releasing her tell-all autobiography.
For professional ghostwriter Nicky it's the biggest job of her career. But as she delves deeper into Olivia's life, cracks begin to appear in the glamorous facade. From the strained relationship with her handsome husband, to murky details of a tragic family death in her childhood, the truth belies Olivia's perfect public image.
But why is Olivia so desperate to leave an old tragedy well alone? And how far will she go to keep Nicky from the truth?
If you like Clare Mackintosh, Fiona Barton, Teresa Driscoll, Jenny Blackhurst, Rachel Abbott, Laura Marshall, Joy Ellis, Cara Hunter, Mel Sherratt or Lisa Jewell then you will be utterly gripped by this psychological thriller with a massive twist you won't see coming.
