‘Everyone has secrets. And now, one of mine is yours…’
Best friends Hollie and Niamh tell each other everything. Behind the village of Abingworth’s closed doors, every family has its secrets – and their doors might hide the worst ones of all.
One day Hollie tells Niamh about a devastating discovery, swears her to secrecy, then vanishes. The villagers claim to know nothing. But when Hollie’s body is found, the police know one of their numbers isn’t just a liar, but a killer…
What did Hollie tell Niamh before she died? And who would kill to keep it hidden?
Having previously worked as cabin crew, a flying instructor and a wedding florist, Debbie turned to writing during her busiest summer of weddings. After self-publishing three women’s commercial fiction novels, she wrote The Bones of You, her first psychological thriller. It was a Sunday Times bestseller and picked for the Richard and Judy book club. Three more have been published by Pan Macmillan: The Beauty of The End, The Death of Her and Her Sister’s Lie.
Her fifth, The Vow, was published by Avon in 2020 and was a #1 ebook bestseller. It is followed by The Secret.
Alongside her thrillers, Debbie has returned to writing women’s fiction novels and The Life You Left Behind will be published in February 2022 by Boldwood.
Debbie writes full time, inspired by the peacefulness of the countryside she lives in with her partner Martin and Bean the rescued cat.
This was an excellent story that you can really get stuck into as you constantly want to know what is going to happen next. Characters work well and keep the story alive for you, I didn’t guess the ending but what a great finish. Debbie’s books are all really good so I would always recommend them.
