Well, that’s going to make it considerably easier to fit her name into my blog header! A new publisher and a new identity for one of my favourite authors – and a new book on its way. And today, a lovely cover to reveal. The Perfect Betrayal by Lauren North will be published by Transworld/Penguin as an e-book on 14th March 2019, and yes, it’s available for pre-order. The paperback will follow later. I’m really rather excited about this one…
‘I thought she was our friend. I thought she was trying to help us.’
After the sudden death of her husband, Tess Clarke is drowning in grief. All she has left is her son, Jamie, and she’ll do anything to protect him – but she’s struggling to cope.
When grief counsellor Shelley knocks on their door, everything changes. Shelley is beautiful, confident and takes control when Tess can’t bear to face the outside world.
But when questions arise over her husband’s death and strange things start to happen, Tess begins to suspect that Shelley may have an ulterior motive. Tess knows she must do everything she can to keep Jamie safe – but who can she trust?
Lauren’s editor, Tash Barsby wrote: “Lauren writes with such emotional depth and intelligence, deftly building to a heart-stopping ending with a twist that knocked me for six”. I suspect this book will find its way onto many people’s must read lists – it’s certainly on mine.
