"Sally Hepworth writes compelling, compassionate novels with characters you come to know and love. She is one of my favourite Australian writers." (Liane Moriarty)

You may get to choose your partner, but you don't get to choose your mother-in-law.

From the moment Lucy met Diana, she was kept at arm's length. Even after marrying Oliver, Lucy knew they'd never be close.

But who could fault Diana? A pillar of the community, an advocate for social justice, the matriarch of a loving family.

That was ten years ago. Now, Diana has been found dead. There is a suicide note, but the autopsy reveals foul play. And everyone in this family is hiding something...

A thrilling page-turner about that trickiest of relationships.


PRAISE FOR THE MOTHER-IN-LAW

'A masterful depiction of how much is said in the silences...a winner for fans of Liane Moriarty,' Booklist (starried review)

'Deliciously entertaining, packed with wit and suspense and also delivers sharp insights about family dynamics and love.' People Magazine

'A mesmerising domestic mystery.' Kirkus
