| ABOUT THE BOOK |
The summer burns with secrets…
It is too hot to sleep. To work. To be questioned time and again by the police.
At the beginning of a stifling, sultry summer, everything shifts irrevocably when Lily doesn’t come home one afternoon.
Rachel is Lily’s teacher. Her daughter Mia is Lily’s best friend. The girls are fifteen – almost women, still children.
As Rachel becomes increasingly fixated on Lily’s absence, she finds herself breaking fragile trusts and confronting impossible choices she never thought she’d face.
It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.
Intrigued? I know I am!
Here’s what other people are saying about Heatstroke.
‘Pulls you into its sweaty interior and keeps you gripped’
‘I couldn’t tear myself away’
‘A scorching tale of obsession, betrayal and the wounds that mothers and daughters inflict on each other in the name of love’
Yep! That definitely sold it to me. Now, let’s take a look at that cover!
I don’t know about you but that definitely screams hot summers and sleepless nights to me.
Heatstroke will be published on May 28th, 2020 but you can already preorder it right now!
