Sally Hepworth in conversation with Katherine Center

Sally Hepworth is the New York Times bestselling author of nine novels, including The Good Sister and The Soulmate. Drawing on the good, the bad and the downright odd of human behaviour, Sally writes incisively about family, relationships and identity. Her domestic thriller novels are laced with quirky humour, sass and a darkly charming tone. They are available worldwide in English and have been translated into twenty languages. Sally lives in Melbourne, Australia, with her family and one adorable dog.

Katherine Center is the New York Times bestselling author of laugh-and-cry novels about love and family, including How to Walk AwayThings You Save in a Fire, and Happiness for Beginners. The movie adaptation of her novel The Lost Husband hit #1 on Netflix, and her books have made many best-of lists. She's been compared to both Jane Austen and Nora Ephron. The Dallas Morning News calls her stories "satisfying in the most soul-nourishing way," and BookPage calls her "the reigning queen of comfort reads." Katherine lives in Houston with her husband and two kids. Visit her website and join her mailing list!

“One of the best thrillers of the year”—The New York Times

"The book is many things: a crime story, a psychological study, a blueprint for how and when to mete out information in a thriller. But most of all it is an inquiry into the mysteries of marriage and commitment, and into what we owe our spouses and one another." --The New York Times Book Review

The glorious novel from the beloved author whose bright, hopelessly romantic New York Times bestsellers have been called “My perfect 10 of a book” (Emily Henry) and cheered for their “speedy pacing and sexual tension for miles” (People).

Love may be blind. But what if . . . what you see isn't what you get?
