She wants to forget her past. He wants to control her present. And her future.
When university lecturer Nicola meets Hugh, she knows immediately that getting over her father’s suicide and being dumped by her former long-term partner are events she can now recover from.
But to the exclusion of all others, Hugh swiftly assumes control over Nicola’s life. Even when caution is urged by everyone around her, it doesn’t stop Nicola rushing headlong into a marriage that grants Hugh access to her money, her home, her heart, and then her mind.
Will anyone be able to drag Nicola out of her husband’s shadow before she fades into it completely?

Superb narration, compelling story
I don’t know if enjoyed the story because I wanted to shout at Nicola for being so naïve and to her friends and family for being so accepting of such out of character behaviour! I think I’m too much of a fan of Silent Witness to buy some of the forensic plot details, but there were some good twists and I binged to the end, which is always a good sign of a cracking psychological thriller. Naomi Madelin’s performance is excellent. She maintained a very convincing Yorkshire accent throughout, acted the story perfectly and her character differentiation was very clear. Recommended.
did he deserve that?
Spoiler alert. This is a difficult book to write a review on without there being spoilers so, if you don’t want to know what happens don’t read on. Did Gary deserve what happened? This is a frustrating book if only because it’s so darned predictable and yet, despite things being glaringly obvious to the reader Nicola, an intelligent woman holding down a responsible job, can’t see it. Gary os obnoxious and there’s some stereotyping in this book. Council house equates to bad person which is utterly wrong as I can testify to myself. Anyway, does anyone deserve to do time for a crime they did not commit just because money talks? Well, you be the judge of that and make no mistake about it, money talked here in the end.

Maria Frankland delivers yet again, this was a gripping addictive domestic thriller with plenty of twists &turns. Love is blind....definitely in this case!
Right from the start this book had my blood boiling - I hated one character and was super frustrated by another. The manipulation & menace were non stop - The gas lighting was out of control 🔥
I enjoyed this book as I've enjoyed all Maria's books that I've read!!
