The Move

by Felicity Everett

The Move Synopsis

New house. Fresh start. Same husband. Can you paint over the cracks in a marriage? 'Felicity has the reader gripped when she explores unhealthy relationships based on insecurity and delusion. She writes with a raw realism' Adele Parks, Sunday Times No.1 bestselling author, in Platinum Karen has packed up her life and is making The Move. She's on her way to the idyllic country cottage which her husband has painstakingly renovated for her. They're escaping the London bustle and the daily grind. And they're escaping their past. A fresh start in a beautiful, peaceful village. It will be different here, right? But something is awry. The landscape, breathtaking by day, is eerie by night. The longed-for peace and solitude is stifling. And the house, so artfully put together by her husband, has a strange vibe. Now that Karen is cut off from her old friends and family, she can't help wondering if her husband has plans of his own, and that history might be repeating itself. From the author of the bestselling The People at Number 9 comes a dark and redemptive tale of a rural dream gone wrong... Praise for The Move: 'Felicity has the reader gripped when she explores unhealthy relationships based on insecurity and delusion. She writes with a raw realism' Adele Parks, Sunday Times No.1 bestselling author, in Platinum 'A dark and foreboding tale of a rural dream gone wrong; of what can happen when we try to paint over the cracks' Sunday Post 'Dark and gripping, this tale is perfect for snuggling up with by the fire with a glass or two of wine' Closer 'Tense and tightly plotted' Woman 'I loved the author's writing style, the complexities of the plot, and how she was able to use imagery to make the landscape seem more beautiful or ominous to the reader' Emma's Biblio Treasures Praise for Felicity Everett: 'An exciting, dark novel about friendship; brutally truthful and raw' Adele Parks 'This was clever, relentless and utterly recognisable. I absolutely loved it!' Katie Fforde 'Excruciating yet unputdownable, this is domestic noir at its most gripping' Woman & Home

I absolutely loved it!' Katie Fforde 'Very occasionally, a novel that's not in the crime genre grips me as much as the best thrillers do. The People at Number 9 held me in its vice-like grip from first page to last. It's a fascinating analysis of an unhealthy friendship based on insecurity and delusion, and the characters are so vividly drawn that I sympathised with them and despaired of them in equal measure' Sophie Hannah 'Excruciating yet unputdownable, this is domestic noir at its most gripping' Woman & Home 'Beady insights into female friendship. Irresistible, excruciating and unputdownable' Fanny Blake 'Incisively witty, painfully true... draws the reader in with the voyeuristic joy of gossiping about our friends and neighbours, with a shocking sting in the tail to catch us all out' Samantha King
