The Rival

Anything you can do, she can do better…


Living in her new home in the countryside, HELENA is a career woman without a job and a mother without a baby. She blames ASHLEY for destroying her life. But is what happened really Ashley’s fault?


When Helena hires Ashley to work for her, she’s startled but impressed by her fierce ambition. They form a dream team and Helena is proud – maybe this is the protégé she’s always wanted to have? But soon Helena realises that nothing will stand in the way of Ashley’s drive to get to the top. And when Helena discovers she is pregnant, she quickly realises how vulnerable her position is, with devastating consequences.

The Rival is an addictive psychological suspense novel about ambition, female rivalry, mental health and motherhood and how far you’d go to get what you want.


THE RIVAL will be published by Quercus in August 2018. Pre-order on Amazon.
