Fiona Neill - The ​Good Girl
Scratch ​the surface of any family hard enough and you'll draw blood . . . No one can believe it when straight A student Romy Field finds herself at the centre of a scandal, least of all her mother Ailsa - who is also the head of her new school. Ailsa is quick to hold Romy's new boyfriend and his parents responsible for what has happened. But as mother and daughter reveal their very different version of events, a much darker truth emerges. It soon becomes apparent that Romy isn't the only member of her family harbouring secrets and her disgrace becomes the catalyst for the unravelling of all those around her. It takes a split second to make a decision that can alter the course of your life. And a lifetime to undo the consequences. Bestselling author Fiona Neill is back with The Good Girl - a dark, compelling and controversial novel of one family's darkest secrets.

Fiona Neill - The ​Betrayals

Fiona Neill - The ​Secret Life of a Slummy Mummy
A ​smart, laugh-out-loud debut novel about a deeply flawed but endearing stay-at-home mom, a book for anyone who took Bridget Jones to heart a decade ago-and now has kids. Lucy Sweeney has three sons, a husband on a short fuse, and a tendency toward domestic disaster. It has been years since the dirty laundry pile was less than three feet high, months since she remembered to have sex, and weeks since her toddler started using the trash can as a toilet. Lucy is living in a constant state of emergency, caught between perfectionist Yummy Mummy No. 1 and competitive Alpha Mum, making it hard for her to remember exactly why she exchanged her career and sanity for less than blissful domesticity. When she begins a flirtation with Sexy Domesticated Dad, a father from the school car-pool lane, the string of white lies to cover up the trail of chaos and illicit desire starts to unravel and disaster looms. Slummy Mummy: The Secret Life of Lucy Sweeney is a hilarious novel about the dilemmas of modern marriage and motherhood for those who never discovered their inner domestic goddess. Pitch-perfect and satisfyingly smart, it does for the stay-at-home mother what Allison Pearson's blockbuster bestseller I Don't Know How She Does It did for the working mom: It offers a lovable, flawed character who resonates, entertains, and undoubtedly has it worse than you do.

Fiona Neill - Árulások
Te ​mit tennél, ha a nő, aki tönkretette a házasságodat, levelet írna, amelyben könyörögve kér, hogy találkozz vele? Egyikük sem fogja elfelejteni a norfolki tengerparton eltöltött hetet. Rosie és Lisa, a gyerekkori barátnők családja mindig is elválaszthatatlan volt. Ám azon a nyáron Lisa összejött Rosie férjével, Nick-kel. Most, nyolc év hallgatás után, Lisa levelet küld Rosie-nak, és a segítségéért könyörög. A levél, amely Rosie lányának, Daisynek a kezébe kerül, sötét titkokat tár fel, és a lány bizonytalan valóságérzéke kezd meginogni. Tizenéves fia, Max önmagát okolja mindenért, ami azon a hosszú, forró nyáron történt. Nicknek pedig a saját emlékei alapján kell szembenéznie az eseményekkel. Ennek a sztorinak négy nézőpontja van. És mind a négy narrátornak megvannak a maga küzdelmei, titkai, dilemmái, félelmei és választásai. Kivételesen megkapó családregény emlékezetről, tévedésekről, hibáztatásról, bűnösségről, bizalomról valamint apróbb és hatalmas árulásokról. "Az Árulások végtelenül megragadó, döbbenetesen erőteljes és kellemesen megtévesztő." Nicola Moriarty Az ötödik levél szerzője
