‘A beautiful and extraordinary debut novel. . . full of intelligence and utterly gripping’ Claire Kendal, author of The Book of You

It started with a lie . . .

Skye has finally met someone she can trust. A holiday romance, of all things. But you know when something real comes along, when it’s meant to be. Don’t you? A week after returning home, and Johnny has disappeared. He hasn’t called or returned her messages.

Then, with the easiest of lies, Skye finds a way back in to Johnny’s life – and to the people in it. When she makes an unlikely friend, they realise that Johnny is telling lies of his own. So will the two women find a way to bring him down – or each other?

It ended with the truth.

‘I was hooked … I couldn’t read fast enough to see how it would all end’ Goodreads reviewer

‘A beautifully written book. The author is very skilled, and writes clever description, but in a way that feels very natural … her prose is wonderful’ Goodreads reviewer


This is a beautiful and extraordinary debut novel, deeply immersive, intricate and original. Full of intelligence and utterly gripping, it is an all too real story of something that can happen to any person who is consumed by unrequited love, with a heroine who commands our sympathy and intense attention despite - no, because of - her driving impulse to seek understanding by looking where she shouldn't.
Claire Kendal, author of THE BOOK OF YOU
