Leave the Lights On
Their new 'smart home' is Joe's dream. A remote cottage where everything - from the lighting to the locks - is controlled through an app. It's the perfect blend of old-world charm and modern convenience. What better place for them to escape after all Lauren's trauma?
Lauren desperately wants Joe to be happy after all she's put him through, so she doesn't tell him how much she hates being so dependent on technology. How vulnerable it makes them.
Then 'the incidents' begin.
Joe thinks Lauren is the victim of her own fevered imagination. But Lauren can't be sure. She doesn't believe in ghosts, but she also knows the past rarely stays buried. And she is haunted by one question:
Is their past finally catching up with them?

But when the police arrive to tell her that Rob has been found dead on his boat, things quickly fall apart. Mia is terrified she'll be suspected, however the police are keeping all options open. They know Mia had reason to hate her ex-husband, but she's not the only one. Plenty of people wanted Rob Creavy dead, not least his new wife, Rachel.
What they don't know is that Mia has a secret, one she's desperate to protect.
But someone else knows. Someone with very dark secrets of their own .
