Description

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.

    The most self-absorbed, long-winded book I've ever read, well attempted to read anyway. I'm not one to give up on a book but I admit defeat with this one.
  • Disappointing

    After the reviews I was so looking forward to reading this on holiday but I found it predictable and the ending disappointing. I can see the easy read might make it good summer read for some but i just didn't find it gripping enough.
  • A thrilling read

    Couldn't put this down as I constantly wanted to know who was going to do what nasty thing next. So good but ending felt rushed. I would have kept the ending just padded it out a bit. I turned over the last page and got a "oh is that it?" feeling.
  • A good read

    Easy reading but a totally pointless story from start to finish and the ending was terrible. I have no idea why the book is number one.
  • Brilliant book, brilliant story behind it.

    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 :)
