Her Pretty Face

Her Pretty Face

The bestselling author of The Party returns with a chilling new domestic drama

Frances Metcalfe is struggling to stay afloat.

A stay-at-home mom whose troubled son is her full-time job, she thought that the day he got accepted into the elite Forrester Academy would be the day she started living her life. Overweight, insecure, and lonely, she is desperate to fit into Forrester’s world. But after a disturbing incident at the school leads the other children and their families to ostracize the Metcalfes, she feels more alone than ever before.

Until she meets Kate Randolph.

Kate is everything Frances is not: beautiful, wealthy, powerful, and confident. And for some reason, she’s not interested in being friends with any of the other Forrester moms—only Frances. As the two bond over their disdain of the Forrester snobs and the fierce love they have for their sons, a startling secret threatens to tear them apart…because one of these women is not who she seems. Her real name is Amber Kunik. And she’s a murderer.

In her masterful second novel, Robyn Harding spins a web of lies, deceit, and betrayal.

Can people ever change? And even if they can, is it possible to forgive the past?

'Creepy and compelling'Kirkus Reviews

'Like Big Little Lies, Robyn Harding's Her Pretty Face peels back the surface of placid suburbia and reveals the secrets, the deceptions, the resentments, and the chaos underneath. This is a smart, darkly witty, and perfectly constructed thriller about friendship, betrayal, and survival. You won't want to miss a single, suspenseful page.' David Bell, USA Today bestselling author of Somebody’s Daughter
 
'Robyn Harding has once again proven herself to be a master of domestic suspense, weaving a complex tale of friendship, parenthood, and long-hidden secrets that forces us to consider whether we can ever truly leave our pasts behind. In the compulsively readable Her Pretty Face, everyone is hiding something, and the only question is whether anyone will survive unscathed as the action reaches its dramatic conclusion.' Kathleen Barber, author of Are You Sleeping

'Robyn Harding’s Her Pretty Face is a fierce and blazing one-sitting read that will make you question even your closest friendships. With prose elegantly woven between sinister, humorous, brutally honest, and downright horrifying, Harding crafts an all-too-believable narrative that preys upon every parent’s greatest vulnerability: their children. Her Pretty Face will undoubtedly spike paranoia levels in school car lines everywhere.' Carter Wilson, USA Today bestselling author of Mister Tender’s Girl and The Comfort of Black
