The Girlfriend by K.L. Slater
Release date: 27 October 2022
Back cover blurb: My husband’s dead. She’s at my door. She owns my home… The doorbell rings, just days after my beloved husband’s sudden death. I don’t recognise the woman on our doorstep, with her buttery blonde highlights, a diamond bracelet identical to my own and a bouncing baby boy in her arms. As I show her inside, I notice her eyes grow wide as she takes in our spacious hallway, and the big squashy sofas that we all used to pile on. She glances at the silver-framed family photos and my little daughter hiding behind my skirts. She looks at me, her blue eyes serious. ‘I’m sorry’ she says. ‘I know this will be hard to hear. But I am your husband’s girlfriend. And this is his son.’ My world implodes. And then she tells me that she owns our home – and that she’s not going anywhere…An utterly gripping psychological thriller from the number one bestselling author of The Marriage. If you like Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and Lisa Jewell then you will be hooked by The Girlfriend.
Jennifer's husband Cole isn't perfect, but he tries. He works hard, has a successful business. and keeps their family safe. They are happy.
Or so she thought...
When Cole is killed in a car accident, Jennifer is beside herself with grief, and worried about her children.
But her nightmare is just beginning.
When a woman with a baby turns up on her doorstep saying that she is Cole's girlfriend and the baby is their Son, Jennifer is distraught. But what comes next is even more shocking.
Through some business arrangement that Jennifer has no knowledge of, her late husband's girlfriend actually owns her house.
Faced with homelessness Jennifer makes a decision that will come back to haunt her, but at the time, it is the only rational thing she can think of.
This is one of those that I don't want to share too much about, or give anything away...
It's a fast paced novel with lots of surprises! The Girlfriend is another great novel by K.L. Slater. and I can't for the next.
