New novel due out in May 2013

I’m delighted that my second novel of psychological suspense will be published by Quercus Books in May.

untitledTHE BAD MOTHER features recently divorced Tessa Parker who runs a successful B&B in an English seaside  town. A long-lost aunt makes a surprise visit from Australia and lets slip a family secret that unsettles Tessa’s fragile world. In shock, and feeling betrayed by her whole family, she confides in her ex-husband just as he reveals he has a new woman in his life. Struck unexpectedly by jealousy, and balancing her own turmoil against the demands of parenting, Tessa tries to trace her birth father, with devastating results. Questioning her own identity, she fails to see how this is also a crucial moment in her children’s lives; fails to see how, if she gets things wrong, the consequences could be fatal.
