About Caroline England
Born Yorkshire lass, Caroline studied Law at the University of Manchester and stayed over the border. Caroline was a divorce and professional indemnity lawyer and instigated her jottings when she deserted the law to bring up her three lovely daughters. Caroline has had short stories and poems published in a variety of literary publications and anthologies.
Her debut novel, Beneath the Skin, known also as The Wife's Secret, was published by Avon HarperCollins on 5 October 2017. Her second novel, My Husband's Lies, followed on 17 May 2018 and became a Kindle top ten bestseller. Her two-book deal with Piatkus of Little, Brown Book Group, includes a "dark" psychological thriller called Betray Her, centred around a toxic friendship and a destructive love triangle. It will publish in March 2019.
Nothing is ever what it seems, which is exactly what Caroline England does best when she's writing. Lots of secrets and lies and as the title implies betrayal.
Friends since boarding school, Jo Wragg from new wealth parents, befriends Kate Bayden-Jones who has not got Jo's working-class heritage. The narrative goes back and forth from schooldays, to around the time when Jo was at university to the present time. The relationship between Jo and Kate is not what it seems and is full of infidelity, illicit sexual liaisons and lack of trust. It's the sort of friendship that really was too good to be true, and you just know it's going to end badly. Could fault it, so no less than the maximum amount of stars for a mind-blowing reading experience.
