Stella and Connie have never met and never will. So why is Stella stalking Connie’s every move on social media?
Stella lives with her mother, a smothering narcissist. Her world has shrunk since the terrible accident that left her a shut-in. Her days are broken up by deliveries from a courier that she always returns and by the irresistible urge to watch the life of a stranger – beautiful Connie – unfold on social media. But why is she so drawn to a woman she has never met? And what caused the accident she doesn’t want to speak about?
Connie is an expat living in Dubai with her partner, Mark, and their two children. On the face of it she wants for nothing and yet she fears that her husband is turning into a stranger. When she finds herself drawn into the lives of the local domestic helpers, she discovers that there are dark secrets in this glittering city.
Two women with nothing in common except a twist of fate. What happens when their lives collide?***************PRAISE FOR THE IMAGE OF HER’A triumph’ Fiona Mitchell’A fascinating, gripping book’ Sophie van Llewyn’An eye-opener, and an evocative glimpse into two lives’ Promoting Crime Fiction’Compelling characters and a plot that just won’t let you stop reading’ Frances Quinn’A gripping story about friendship, self-worth and the versions of ourselves we show the world’ Woman’s Own
