    Paperback
    'Fans of Liane Moriarty will adore Jessica Strawser' Kate Moretti Ever wonder what your friends really think of you? Drinks in hand, a group of neighbourhood women gather around a fire pit to enjoy a rare child-less Saturday night. Giddy with freedom, they drink too much, share secrets they wish, perhaps, they hadn't, and enjoy getting to know each other better. The single newcomer. The imperfect mom. The new-born parents. The military wife. The almost divorcee. Come Monday Morning, one of them is gone. Everyone knows something about everyone else in the small town of Yellow Springs, but no one can make sense of the disappearance. Kristin was a sociable mother, school administrator, and doctor's wife who didn't seem all that bothered by her impending divorce. When the investigation launches, it turns up more questions than answers - with her soon-to-be-ex-husband, Paul at the centre. For her closest neighbour, Clara, the incident triggers memories she thought she'd put behind her. As the town's scrutiny turns in on her, her own suspicions about what really happened that night quickly grow. Meanwhile, the neighbourhood's newest addition, Izzy, is determined not to jump to any conclusions. But across the lawns, appearances can be deceiving, and the most beautiful houses can hide the ugliest secrets. A truly gripping domestic thriller of friendship, manipulation and betrayal that fans of Desperate Housewives, The Family Next Door and Liane Moriarty's HBO hit Big Little Lies have been waiting for. *************** What readers are saying 'Twisty and engrossing, this is one thriller you don't want to miss!' 'I was gripped and glued to the page' 'I was drawn into the story from the first page and felt like these women were MY friends' 'What a clever page-turner with some great character dynamics and a few twisties that sucked me in and kept me guessing through to the end'

    Hardback
    Molly and Liza have always been close in a way that people envy. Even after Molly married Daniel, both considered Liza an honorary member of their family. But after Liza moved away, things grew more strained than anyone wanted to admit - in the friendship and the marriage. When Daniel goes away on business, Molly and Liza plan to reconnect with a nice long video chat over wine after the kids are in bed. But when Molly leaves the room to check on a crying baby, a man in a mask enters, throwing Liza into a panic - then her screen goes black. When Liza finally hears from Molly, her message is icy and terse, insisting everything is fine. Liza is still convinced something is wrong, that her friend is in danger. But after an all-night drive to help her ends in a brutal confrontation, Liza is sure their friendship is over - completely unaware that she's about to have a near miss of her own. And Molly, refusing to deal with what's happened, won't turn to Daniel, either. But none of them can go on pretending. Not after this. Forget You Know Me exposes the wounds of people who've grown apart, against their will. Best friends, separated by miles. Spouses, hardened by neglect. A mother, isolated by pain. The man in the mask will change things for them all. But who was he? And will he be back?

    Jessica Strawser

    Product Code: AXYFA
    Hardback
    Violet and Finn were "meant to be," said everyone, always. They ended up together by the hands of fate aligning things just so. Three years into their marriage, they have a wonderful little boy, and as the three of them embark on their first vacation as a family, Violet can't help thinking that she can't believe her luck. Life is good. So no one is more surprised than she when Finn leaves her at the beach - just packs up the hotel room and disappears. And takes their son with him. Violet is suddenly in her own worst nightmare, and faced with the knowledge that the man she's shared her life with, she never really knew at all. Caitlin and Finn have been best friends since way back when, but when Finn shows up on Caitlin's doorstep with the son he's wanted for kidnapping, demands that she hide them from the authorities, and threatens to reveal a secret that could destroy her own family if she doesn't, Caitlin faces an impossible choice. Told through alternating viewpoints of Violet, Finn and Caitlin, Almost Missed You is a powerful story of a mother's love, a husband's betrayal, connections that maybe should have been missed, secrets that perhaps shouldn't have been kept, and spaces between what's meant to be and what might have been.
