Victim. Murderer. Serial Killer. What next? The third darkly comic thriller in the highly addictive Sweetpea series featuring serial killer Rhiannon Lewis. ‘Think Bridget Jones meets Killing Eve – only with better jokes’ Daily Mail Can a serial killer ever lose their taste for murder? Since confessing to her bloody murder spree Rhiannon Lewis, the now-notorious Sweetpea killer, has been feeling out-of-sorts. Having fled the UK on a cruise ship to start her new life, Rhiannon should be feeling happy.

Maybe Rhiannon is realising that there’s more to life than death… The third book in the critically-acclaimed series following Sweetpea and In Bloom featuring everyone’s favourite truly original girl-next-door serial killer Rhiannon Lewis.Show more
‘Brilliantly-written characters, original and engaging. It’s so good!’ BA Paris JOANNE HAYNES HAS A SECRET. THAT IS NOT HER REAL NAME. And there’s more. Her flat isn’t hers. Her cats aren't hers. Even her hair isn’t really hers. Nor is she any of the other women she pretends to be. Not the bestselling romance novelist who gets her morning snack from the doughnut van on the seafront. Nor the pregnant woman in the dental surgery. Nor the chemo patient in the supermarket for whom the cashier feels ever so sorry. They're all just alibis. In fact, the only thing that’s real about Joanne is that nobody can know who she really is. But someone has got too close. It looks like her alibis have begun to run out…. Your favourite authors are loving The Alibi Girl ‘Heart-wrenching, impossible to predict and completely absorbing’ John Marrs ‘The master of dark, sexy psychological suspense’ Suzy K Quinn ‘A dark, addictive read’ Phoebe MorganShow more
Shortlisted for the CrimeFest Last Laugh Award 2018 'Makes Hannibal Lecter look like Mary Poppins... this is going to give me a serious book hangover' John Marrs, author of The One If only they knew the real truth. It should be my face on those front pages. My headlines. I did those things, not him. I just want to stand on that doorstep and scream it: IT WAS ME. ME. ME. ME. ME! Rhiannon Lewis has successfully fooled the world and framed her cheating fiancé Craig for the depraved and bloody killing spree she committed. She should be ecstatic that she's free. Except for one small problem. She's pregnant with her ex lover's child. The ex-lover she only recently chopped up and buried in her in-laws garden. And as much as Rhiannon wants to continue making her way through her kill lists, a small voice inside is trying to make her stop. But can a killer's urges ever really be curbed? Amazon reviewers love In Bloom: 'Dark, twisted, hysterical and heart breaking all in one. Outstanding.' 'Sick, twisted and disturbing, and so deliciously, darkly funny!' 'Brilliant characters, spot-on dialogue and a great plot. I just can't fault it.'Show more
Shortlisted for the CrimeFest Last Laugh Award 2018 'If you like your thrillers darkly comic and outrageous this ticks all the boxes' The Sun The last person who called me 'Sweetpea' ended up dead... I haven't killed anyone for three years and I thought that when it happened again I'd feel bad. Like an alcoholic taking a sip of whisky. But no. Nothing. I had a blissful night's sleep. Didn't wake up at all. And for once, no bad dream either. This morning I feel balanced. Almost sane, for once. Rhiannon is your average girl next door, settled with her boyfriend and little dog...but she's got a killer secret. Although her childhood was haunted by a famous crime, Rhinannon's life is normal now that her celebrity has dwindled. By day her job as an editorial assistant is demeaning and unsatisfying. By evening she dutifully listens to her friend's plans for marriage and babies whilst secretly making a list. A kill list. From the man on the Lidl checkout who always mishandles her apples, to the driver who cuts her off on her way to work, to the people who have got it coming, Rhiannon's ready to get her revenge. Because the girl everyone overlooks might be able to get away with murder...Show more
