A mother. A son. His girlfriend. And the lie they'll wish had never been told.

Laura has it all. A successful career, a long marriage to a rich husband, and a twenty-three year-old son, Daniel, who is kind, handsome, and talented. Then Daniel meets Cherry. Cherry is young, beautiful and smart but hasn't led Laura's golden life. And she wants it.

When tragedy strikes, a decision is made and a lie is told. A lie so terrible it changes their lives forever...

The Girlfriend is a taut and wickedly twisted debut psychological thriller--a novel of subtle sabotage, retaliation, jealousy and fear, which pivots on an unforgivable lie, and examines the mother-son-daughter-in-law relationship in a chilling new light.

This book has great pacing and lures the reader right into to a quirky, gripping story about an ambitious girl who finds herself at odds with her successful boyfriend's controlling mother. This novel has a steady undertone of wry humor even as the characters start to commit unforgivable acts. The solid pacing and plot coupled with funny, flawed characters makes it worth the read!
