The jawdropping and twisty new thriller from the author of The Perfect Father

Four pregnant women. Three nights of pampering at an exclusive yoga retreat. One too many deadly secrets . . .

On a remote farm in the deepest Devonshire countryside, four pregnant women arrive at an exclusive yoga retreat for a five-star weekend of prenatal pampering. The location is idyllic.

And secrets can be deadly . . .

Reviews

Duckworth's best yet
Rebecca Fleet
A perfect domestic suspense, wonderfully sinister and compelling with a pounding sense of upcoming doom. A real page-turner
Caroline Hulse
A completely addictive read where no-one can be trusted and nothing is as it seems. I loved every page
Sophie Flynn
Duckworth has triumphed in fusing the unassuming serene with the abject sinister in her propulsive novel, The Sanctuary. With every chapter, there is layered tension and intrigue. I ripped through it
LV Matthews
I sped through this sinister locked-room mystery which is both gripping and compulsive with twists galore. More please Charlotte!
Emily Freud
A superbly plotted thriller - I could not put it down
Celia Rees
A writer at the top of her thriller game. Suspense, intrigue and a setting to die for
Louise Mumford
A fast-paced, twisty thriller about pregnancy and pampering in an isolated retreat where nothing is quite as it seems. I thoroughly enjoyed it
