Every decision has a consequence...

The break-up of Olivia's marriage is hard on all involved, but especially her nine-year-old daughter, Ellie. They attempt to build a new life, and focus on the future. But Olivia is crushingly lonely, so when her new neighbour, Michael, extends the hand of friendship, it's all she can do to stop herself clutching at it and never letting go.

Olivia has no idea how the course of her life will be altered by that choice.

Before long, Michael and Oliva are a couple. There are some difficulties making it work – after all, both parties have emotional baggage. Doesn't everyone keep some secrets? If only Ellie could adjust, and Michael's erratic sister, Chloe, didn't keep bringing drama to their door.

But Olivia doesn't listen to the warning signs before it's far, far too late. By the time she realises something is badly wrong with the man she's involved with, she cannot escape. The only way out is for the truth to explode like a bomb, shattering their lives, and ensuring no one caught in the middle will ever be the same again...

A compelling psychological thriller with an unforgettable ending from #1 bestseller Kathryn Croft. Perfect for readers who love Samantha Hayes, Alison James and S. E. Lynes.

*** Previously published under the title Behind Closed Doors. ***
