Moving to the quiet Cotswolds village of Willowcombe is just the fresh start that Lucy needs. With its picture-perfect cottages and tranquil, leafy lanes, it’s miles away from her old life in London – and her past mistakes. When Alice arrives in the village a few months later and moves into the cottage next door, Lucy and her friends welcome her in. Alice suggests starting a book club; the perfect way to get to know each other in a small community. But the neighbours of Willowcombe have no idea what kind of woman they’re letting into their homes – and their lives. Alice hasn’t moved to the village for peace and quiet: she’s here for revenge. And she knows their secrets.

She came for revenge.
