Book Description:


My husband’s dead. She’s at my door. She owns my home…

The doorbell rings, just days after my beloved husband’s sudden death. I don’t recognise the woman on our doorstep, with her buttery blonde highlights, a diamond bracelet identical to my own and a bouncing baby boy in her arms.

As I show her inside, I notice her eyes grow wide as she takes in our spacious hallway, and the big squashy sofas that we all used to pile on. She glances at the silver-framed family photos and my little daughter hiding behind my skirts.

She looks at me, her blue eyes serious. ‘I’m sorry’ she says. ‘I know this will be hard to hear. But I am your husband’s girlfriend. And this is his son.’

My world implodes. And then she tells me that she owns our home – and that she’s not going anywhere…

An utterly gripping psychological thriller from the number one bestselling author of The Marriage. If you like Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and Lisa Jewell then you will be hooked by The Girlfriend.

My Review:

What starts out as a shocking discovery ends up with a wild ride you will not see coming!  Can you imagine finding out about your husband and his secret family and then finding out they own everything you thought was yours?  Jennifer’s husband dies unexpectedly, and she finds out her husband has a mistress and a baby and they are claiming they own your house.  And move in.  What a wacky scenario that I could have never thought of.  While the story is quite entertaining, I had many moments thinking what the heck!?!

Told in the present and the past and with chapters from a few characters POVs, the story unraveled in a twisty way.  I’ve read a lot of domestic thrillers, but this one is definitely unique and will keep you guessing.

Author Bio:


For many years, Kim sent her work out to literary agents but never made it off the slush pile. At the age of 40 she went back to Nottingham Trent University and now has an MA in Creative Writing.

Before graduating, she received five offers of representation from London literary agents which was, as Kim says, ‘a fairytale … at the end of a very long road!’

Kim is a full-time writer and lives in Nottingham with her husband, Mac.
