The addictive Number One bestselling thriller, perfect for fans of Into the Water.

A girl. A boy. His mother. And the lie she'll wish she'd never told.

The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances is a gripping and chilling debut psychological thriller, based on the fall-out following an unforgiveable lie. It looks at the potentially charged relationship between girlfriend, boyfriend and his mother, which most women can identify with, and locates it in an extreme but believable setting.

Laura has it all. A successful career, a long marriage to a rich husband, and a twenty-three year-old son, Daniel, who is kind, handsome, and talented. Then Daniel meets Cherry. Cherry is young, beautiful and smart but she hasn't had the same opportunities as Daniel. And she wants Laura's life.

Cherry comes to the family wide-eyed and wants to be welcomed with open arms, but Laura suspects she's not all that she seems.

When tragedy strikes, an unforgiveable lie is told. It is an act of desperation, but the fall-out will change their lives forever.

    Fantastic read, not much of a book reader myself but couldn't wait to finish this one. Read it in around 3 days as was wanting to know what came next, would highly recommend.

    I quite liked this but it just took too long to get going. I wasn't overly keen on the ending either, I saw it coming. Still worth a read though :)

    Love psychological thrillers but having read so many now not many live up to 'the hype'. Really got into it at the start and then plot plateaud for too long

    This is the first book I've ever read till the end as I'm not a fan or reading. I read this book in less than 2 weeks as I couldn't stop reading. I love people's drama, and this book is just that. Full of drama, hate, love, violence. I had to read some parts over to understand what was happening but the whole story was amazing. I recommend this to anyone, any age with any type of reading interest.
