Her name was Rose. You watched her die. And her death has created a vacancy.

When Emily lets a stranger step out in front of her, she never imagines that split second will change her life. But after Emily watches a car plough into the young mother – killing her instantly – she finds herself unable to move on.

And then she makes a decision she can never take back.

Because Rose had everything Emily had ever dreamed of. A beautiful, loving family, a great job and a stunning home. And now Rose’s husband misses his wife, and their son needs a mother. Why couldn’t Emily fill that space?

But as Emily is about to discover, no one’s life is perfect … and not everything is as it seems.



As soon as I saw the blurb for this one I was intrigued and then after seeing that fantastic cover I knew it was a book I would definitely need to get my hands on!

I love a good psychological thriller and settled myself in to read a few chapters of this book and I found myself reading in to the early hours – I had to finish to see where the author was taking us!  It has some fantastic characters that are really well developed.

It was an engaging read from the first to last page and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  I did feel quite emotional at times when reading the book and there were a few twists I didn’t expect – four stars from me – a really enjoyable story that had me on tenterhooks!
