'Elegant, clever and totally convincing'
Sunday Mirror on What She Never Told Me
Your mother. The one person you trust. What if you're wrong?
Widowed Nan is on her way to her beloved son's wedding. She should be excited, but she is dreading her return to Paradise Place - a small area of Notting Hill that she hasn't dared set foot on for decades. Nan had arrived there as a young girl in the late seventies, desperate for freedom and a career as an artist. But, drawn into a dark obsession that spun out of control, Nan was forced to flee.
And while the only thing seemingly connecting her son's wedding and her old secret life is Paradise Place, Nan quickly gets the impression that someone is watching her every move . . . someone she thought was dead.

Kate McQuaile writes fascinatingly flawed characters and domestic noir beautifully. The topic may be dark but the writing is so lyrical, you won't want to stop reading - Jo Spain
Broken Flowers is both twisty and empathetic. I love how Kate McQuaile's two unreliable narrators each vie for sympathy, and how, in a battle for psychological survival, no one tells the whole truth, even to themselves - Isabelle Grey
A gripping family tale, moving easily from seventies London to the present day, chock full of twists and turns - Andrea Carter
Broken Flowers is a dark, propulsive novel that had me hooked from the first line. No one does twisted families like Kate McQuaile - Jack Jordan
