Having left her job as a news reporter after struggling to combine it with motherhood, Tash is determined to make it as a freelance journalist.
When a young nanny, Sophie Blake, is found dead at a beauty spot near Tash’s home under suspicious circumstances, she is certain that this could be the story to launch her career.
As Tom and Tash work increasingly long hours, she desperately needs her son to settle in at the local playgroup. The wealthy mothers at the gates are remarkably friendly, and Tash finds herself ushered into their seductive world of stunning houses, expensive coffees and lavish playdates.
Then, suddenly, a former friend of Sophie is found dead. The more Tash investigates, the more she finds that the answers lead her uncomfortably close to the playgroup mothers.
Are they really her friends? Or is there another reason she was so easily accepted into their exclusive world? Has Tash been watching them?
