Façade by Helen Matthews

A drowned child. Estranged sisters. A once-perfect home. Silence echoes louder than truth. When seventeen-year-old Rachel’s baby brother drowns and her older sister, Imogen, escapes to live abroad with Simon, her musician boyfriend, Rachel must face the family’s grief and disintegration alone. Twenty years later, Rachel is a successful businesswoman, with a daughter of her own, supporting her parents and their elegant Georgian home, The Old Rectory, that shackles them to the past. Simon’s sudden death in Ibiza brings Imogen back, impoverished and resentful. Her family owes her, and she will stop at nothing to reclaim what she believes is rightly hers. The rift between the sisters seems permanent. While Imogen has lived a nomadic life, filled with intrigue, in Spain and Tunisia, Rachel’s has appeared stable and successful but, behind the veneer, cracks are appearing. Now, she is vulnerable. As the wall of silence and secrecy crumbles, danger stalks Rachel’s family. She must re-examine her baby brother’s death, find out what happened in Tunisia, and fight to hold onto everything she’s achieved -or risk losing it all. Façade is a gripping tale of loss, guilt and danger. Now available in Amazon Kindle and paperback formats. ~~~ Praise for Façade: “This book didn’t slow down for me. It sped up. I was hooked for good. The twists and turns kept on coming. Wow - that final twist was the one.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ~ Sharon Rimmelzwaan, Beyond the Books “Wow .... starts off in an amazing way that immediately pulls you into the plot. The story is atmospheric and tense and I loved it.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ~ Rajiv’s Reviews “Addictive...I would pick it up only intending to read for an odd half hour but would become so wrapped up in the story I read for much longer. I resented having to put this book down.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ~ Amanda Oughton, gingerbookgeek “Façade isn't your normal family mystery thriller. I felt it's much darker ... It will keep you guessing. You won't want to put it down.” ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ~ Rachel Bustin, Lifestyle Blogger
