THE BOOK

She will do anything to protect her.

Even if it means murder.

Welcome to Kensington Grove, the safest place to call home….

Jodie Madison can’t think of a better place for a fresh start than the exclusive, gated community of The Grove. But from the moment she passes through the wrought iron gates, she starts to suspect she’s made a mistake.

Despite her vow to keep apart from the other residents, Jodie can’t help but feel drawn to her unnerving neighbour Norah Williams and terminally ill daughter, Lacey. Jodie knows she should stay away, but something draws her in.

When a murder shocks The Grove, Jodie vows to do everything in her power to save Lacey from her mother. But as more secrets emerge from Norah’s shadowy past, Jodie is faced with the unthinkable – Norah’s not so different to herself, and neither woman is innocent.

The past won’t stay hidden forever. And The Grove will be an unforgiving witness.

REVIEWS

THE GIRL BEYOND THE GATE

“This book is an absolutely fantastic debut. I have devoured this giving anyone who attempted to disturb me a death stare. I have loved everything about this wonderful book. Interesting characters and setting. Drama and suspense throughout. This book has converted me as a fan of this author and I cannot wait to read more.”

– NetGalley Reviewer

“Very twisty, definitely didn’t see the ending coming. I enjoyed this quick read and you will too. I think the characters could have. been drawn out more as they were interesting to me I think more of Jodie’s past life could have been foreshadowed and explained. If you like twisty themes, creepy neighborhoods, British community and secret pasts then #TheGirlBeyondTheGate is for you!”
