About the book

We all know that family relationships are never straightforward, and we can't choose our children's partners. We just have to hope we like them…

Laura has it all – a successful career, a long marriage to a rich husband, and a 23-year-old son, Daniel, who is kind, handsome and talented. Then Daniel meets Cherry. Cherry is young, beautiful and smart but she hasn't had the same opportunities as Daniel. And she wants Laura's life.

Obsessed with crime and thrillers? The Girlfriend is the final book in our cracking Mumsnet and Thin Blue Spine's Crime and Thriller book club. See what other thrillers we read.
