What if someone threatened your happily ever after? A brilliantly suspenseful domestic noir about family, motherhood, and choosing the right people to trust. Perfect for readers of Amanda Prowse and Sabine Durrant. Eve and Neil live in the beautiful Cumbrian town of Tarnside. After trying, and failing, to have a baby, they are in the final stages of adopting four-year-old Milly. They just have to pass the 'settling in' period ? three months of living together as a family under watchful eyes ? and then they can make it official. For Eve, her years of heartbreak are nearly at an end. But her happiness is fragile. Any hint of trouble and the adoption could collapse. All it would take to smash Eve's new family to pieces is one misunderstanding, one rumour, one accusation.
