The perfect wife. A fairytale family. Don’t believe your eyes… 

Jeanie and Matthew are a happily married couple who both have teenage children from previous relationships.

No one said it would be easy to raise a blended family under one roof but Jeanie and Matthew are strong. They will make it work.

And whilst Jeanie’s step-daughter Scarlett rejects her, Jeanie will just have to try harder to win her over.
But Jeanie has a past. A terrible secret she thought she’d buried a long time ago. And now, it’s coming to the surface, threatening to destroy her new marriage. 

Someone is playing a terrifying game on Jeanie and she must put a stop to it once and for all. 

After all, a fairytale needs a happy ending…doesn’t it.

There was loads of twists and turns in this book, it was fabulous for keeping you guessing. I didn't see most of it coming at all. 

Really enjoyed the story at least what I could understand of it, the references periodically to fairy tales didn't really do much for me, but I could sort of understand why they were there. 

If you ever marry a man and become a stepmother - all I can say is don't marry into a family like the one the Jeannie did. Makes life a lot creepier than it needed to be.

Great story including tips on how to be a good step mother, and plenty of surprising turns and information to come out that will keep you reading until the last page. 

Thank you to Netgalley and Bookouture for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
