Four suburban mothers and friends conspire to cover up a deadly crime in Just Between Us, a heart-stopping novel of suspense by Rebecca Drake.

Behind every closed door is a woman you may never truly know. . .

Alison, Julie, Sarah, Heather. Four friends living the suburban ideal. Their jobs are steady, their kids thriving. But each of them is keeping a dangerous secret—and hidden behind the veneer of their perfect lives is a mystery that will consume them all.

“Compulsively readable.”—O, The Oprah Magazine

When Alison spots a nasty bruise on Heather’s wrist, she shares her suspicions with Julie and Sarah, compelling all three to investigate into their friend’s marriage. As mysterious injuries and erratic behavior mount, Heather can no longer deny the abuse—but she refuses to leave her husband. Desperate to save her, Alison and the others dread the phone call telling them that Heather is dead.

“Twisty and compelling.” —Associated Press

But the shocking call they get changes everything. In a moment they’ll come to regret, the women must decide what lengths they’ll go to in order to save a friend…and themselves.

“Tense, bombshell-laden, and action-packed.” —Publishers Weekly
