Announcing Bury Your Secrets!

I’m absolutely over the moon to be able to reveal the details of my latest novel, Bury Your Secrets, and to announce that it will be released on Kindle and in paperback on Monday 1st August.

Those of you that are members of my Readers’ Club will have been following the development of this gripping psychological thriller — a first for me — for a while now, but the time has come to unveil it to the wider public. Read on for the blurb and a sneak peek at the wonderful cover art put together by Tim Barber at Dissect Designs.

One Saturday afternoon, three friends head north for a long weekend. On Monday, they will return home, having buried a body in the woods.

For Hazel, reeling from the discovery of her long-term partner’s infidelity, a getaway to a remote coastal village with her best friends, Mickie and Claire, seems like the ideal remedy. And when a local man, Aidan, takes a shine to her, Hazel wonders if she’s ready to move on.

Within hours, however, Aidan is dead, leaving Hazel and her friends with a dreadful choice: to come clean or mount a cover-up. Determined to protect Hazel at all costs, the friends forge a desperate pact.

But secrets have a habit of catching up with you - and of testing the bonds of friendship to their limits. And Hazel is about to find out that, no matter how much she might wish otherwise, you can’t bury the truth forever.

A gripping standalone psychological thriller from the McIlvanney Prize-nominated author of the Anna Scavolini mysteries, Bury Your Secrets is perfect for fans of Ruth Ware’s The Lying Game, Andrea Bartz’s We Were Never Here and Luca Veste’s The Six.

Bury Your Secrets paperback and ebook covers

Bury Your Secrets is available to pre-order on Kindle today, with the paperback edition available to order closer to the release date. As we get closer to the launch, I’ll be sharing more details, including an early sneak peek at the prologue and opening chapter — and, like The Shadow Men, there will be a full book tour to coincide with the release date, once more organised by Kelly Lacey at Love Books Tours.
