Will Sarah’s determination to be the perfect Instamum mean she loses everything?

Sarah and Tom’s baby daughter has died, and they’re in danger of losing their way: Sarah wants another baby, and Tom is terrified of reliving the heartache. Unable to see how they can move on with their lives, in desperation Sarah reconnects with her old life online – and her obsession with the family life she longs for begins to threaten everything she’s ever had or wanted. Ellie and her daughter were happy before Paige’s father, Steve, absent since her birth, comes back into their lives and sweeps them both off their feet – but is Ellie’s desire for the ideal family blinding her to a darker truth? And how long will it take Steve to discover the secret that connects Ellie and Sarah to one another?

BAD INFLUENCE is about striving for perfection when you already have everything you need – and risking it all in the process, confronting issues of baby loss and emotional abuse that will be instantly recognisable to many readers.

Perfect Mishap


Dottie Harris has a knack for stumbling into chaotic situations, gin & tonic in hand!

When Dottie and Henry Harris move to their new house, Dottie’s only desire is to make friends in the neighbourhood. But Dottie, just home from delivering her third child, is struggling to adjust to village life. Recently promoted Henry travels a lot, and the neighbours aren’t very welcoming (although that could be because when Dottie first met them, she had dyed her children green).

So when Dottie accidentally hears her neighbours’ conversations over her baby monitor, she can’t help but use the information in her quest to build new friendships.

Of course, eavesdropping never ends well, and when Dottie discovers that two of her neighbours are having an affair, she’s horrified. Worse still, the locals are convinced she’s the one who’s doing the cheating. It’s up to Dottie to clear her name and expose the real cheat—in her signature haphazard way!
