A great cover reveal just in for Rona Halsall’s upcoming psychological thriller Her Mother’s Lies. The ebook is due for release on the 23rd of October published by Bookouture.
I really enjoyed Rona’s last book The Honeymoon. A new author to me then, I was looking forward to her next book and now have this to look forward to. Let’s see what Rona has in store for us with Her Mother’s Lie.
About the Book
‘She hasn’t told you, has she?’ He squeezed his eyes shut. She watched the muscles of his jaw tense, then his eyes blinked open and he took a deep breath… ‘I’m not your father.’
He was there for her first steps, for her first day of school. He helped her with her homework, and took her for ice cream at the weekends. And then, two days before her ninth birthday, Martha’s father walked out. She never knew what went wrong, but she and her mother Fran never saw or heard from him again.
Fifteen years later, frustrated in a life which consists of caring for an increasingly-ill Fran, and heartbroken after the death of a beloved friend, Martha decides she needs some answers, and she knows it’s time to track down the father who left them behind.
Except when she comes face-to-face with him for the first time in fifteen years, he tells her a brutal truth.
He isn’t her father.
Her mother has been telling lies.
And not just about who her real father is…
Sounds great doesn’t it.
Her Mother’s Lies is available to preorder now
