The author of the bestselling novel The Party—lauded as “tense and riveting” by New York Times bestselling author Megan Miranda —returns with a chilling new domestic drama about two women whose deep friendship is threatened by dark, long-buried secrets.
Frances Metcalfe is struggling to stay afloat.
A stay-at-home mom whose troubled son is her full-time job, she thought that the day he got accepted into the elite Forrester Academy would be the day she started living her life. Overweight, insecure, and lonely, she is desperate to fit into Forrester’s world. But after a disturbing incident at the school leads the other children and their families to ostracize the Metcalfes, she feels more alone than ever before.
Until she meets Kate Randolph.
Kate is everything Frances is not: beautiful, wealthy, powerful, and confident. And for some reason, she’s not interested in being friends with any of the other Forrester moms—only Frances. As the two bond over their disdain of the Forrester snobs and the fierce love they have for their sons, a startling secret threatens to tear them apart.
Because one of these women is not who she seems. Her real name is Amber Kunik. And she’s a murderer.
In her masterful follow-up to The Party, Robyn Harding spins a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal, asking the question: Can people ever change? And even if they can, is it possible to forgive the past?
What a fabulously twisty read! The more psychological thrillers I read, the more I question everybody I meet! I look at people after they introduce themselves to me and I think “yes right, if that’s your real name…” lol
Harding’s book, “Her Pretty Face” will definitely send you on a tail soon of predictions! I love how she weaved this story together in such a creepy way that until the very last pages, you will be shocked! Each chapter ended in a twisty, suspense-filled cliffhanger!
The chapters alternate between perspectives. DAISY, FRANCES, DJ tell the majority of the story. How it all comes together is revealed slowly and suspensefully! You will never guess who did what and who is trustworthy or not!
Get ready to turn pages furiously and ignore everything as you race to the end!
LOVED THIS BOOK!!! 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ twisty stars!
