As part of her recovery from a devastating car accident, Grace embarks on a surprise cruise booked by her husband, Cameron. The accident still haunts her and she is a little anxious to be leaving her family. But she’s excited to fulfil a life-long dream – cruising around the Mediterranean with some friends – even if her husband’s secretary, Chantelle is tagging along for the trip.  Maybe this is a chance to start a fresh with this woman. But Chantelle appears to be everywhere Grace turns, and her instincts can’t all be wrong.  

Something is off. Not only does Chantelle resemble Grace, it soon becomes clear that she is desperate for Cameron’s attention, but what lengths would she go to get it? Were Cameron’s motives for sending Grace away on this cruise as admirable as she first thought and is her husband’s relationship with Chantelle as platonic as he claims?  

Grace’s journey of self-discovery suddenly begins to feel rather sinister. Her friends are distant, Chantelle is incessantly playing with her mind, and Grace feels more lost and alone than ever. Then, she discovers that her husband has told the children she’s died. Grace’s world is shattered. Everything she knows has been a lie and the truth has devastating consequences for everyone… 

Fans of T.M. Logan, C.L. Taylor and K.L. Slater won’t be able to put this one down.

Black Notice by Lotte Petri 

Format: Ebook 
ISBN: 9788726325508 

In a sleepy seaside town outside Copenhagen, a strange light at the bottom of the harbour has the police call in a military diver. Deep down in the dark water sits a car, with the dead body of a young woman in the driver’s seat. The dead woman seems to have been the victim of a sadistic surgery. 
On some jagged cliffs in the south of Norway, a dog walker finds a part of a corpse wearing a wetsuit. In their search for the identity of the victim, local police send out a black notice through Interpol, and before long another girl in a similar wetsuit is found dead all the way down in the Netherlands. 
But when a woman bearing a scar similar to the others is found lifeless and icy cold in a forest lake, she could be the most important witness for the police — if only they are able to bring her back from the dead.
