Rani’s life is far from idyllic – with two small children and a partner in a tiny rented flat that has never felt like home, she has always wished for a different life.
Then, Natalie moves into the large house across the road – and Rani can’t help but be drawn to her. To her life of luxury, to her perfect husband, her perfect house.
But not all is as it seems behind closed doors, and as Rani gets closer to Natalie, she discovers everyone has secrets – and some will stay with you for a lifetime . . .

A darkly compelling, emotive debut about two women who find themselves sucked into each other’s worlds – with devastating consequences. Perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty and Sally Hepworth.

An emotive, darkly gripping debut. HER is a devastating look at what happens when you start to scrape away at the 'perfect' life - with some sucker-punch twists right at the end!
Louise Mumford
A remarkable debut thriller . . . intriguing secrets are woven into the narrative, pushing this twisty story to an explosive end you won't see coming. Set against a backdrop of monied, status-driven London, and with taut tension throughout, this is a must read for 2023.
Heather Darwent
I read the entire book in one day: the suspense of what would happen next made it completely unputdownable. The book expertly touches on important topics of race and discrimination, something I haven't read in many books and really makes you think. A terrifically suspenseful thriller that I think will be on everyone's reading lot for 2023!
Paula Johnston
What a book! A well-paced, dark, psychological thriller with a cast of beautifully drawn and believable characters, it exposes the true nature of people, who they are and what they think, while celebrating the importance of friendship in even the darkest of times. A highly accomplished debut
S.V. Leonard
I devoured this in one sitting. Compelling and intriguing - you won't be able to put it down either
Sarah Lawton
A searing exploration of two women, how their lives collide and the power of female friendship. The characters and settings are so richly drawn you feel like you've met them and been there in real life, with some stunning descriptions to boot. Completely compelling, I was even reading it while I brushed my teeth because I didn't want to leave Rani and Natalie's world!
Stephanie Sowden
Utterly addictive. HER is your new girl crush
Emma Bamford
A refreshing take on female friendship and a twisty psychological ride with a shock ending - what a read
Cate Green
A page-turning debut looking at friendship, secrets and being careful what you wish for. Tense and compelling - can't wait to see what Mira does next!
Catherine Cooper
Dark and utterly compelling, Shah explores topical and poignant themes with a steady hand. I tore through this incredible thriller with a pounding heart, desperate to uncover the secrets hidden between the pages. HER is a taut, simmering debut that hooked its claws into me and refused to let go.
Vikki Patis
HER is a highly original, fresh take on the psychological thriller genre, which I devoured in two days. With two engaging, flawed protagonists, who I was rooting for from the start, and a twisty-turny plot that takes the usual tropes and turns them on their head, what's not to like? Mira Shah is one to watch.
Jennie Godfrey
A tension that doesn't let up and a rollercoaster of an ending that thwacks you over and over with its twists, but my favourite thing about HER was that at its heart - whatever the genre - it is a story that puts the focus in on female friendship and the way that we relate to and bond with other women
Caroline Corcoran
A brilliant novel about friendship, about self-discovery and self-worth, all wrapped within a fabulously layered domestic suspense. I raced through it.
LV Matthews
By turning the 'frenemy' trope on its head, Mira V Shah has brought something fresh and exciting to the domestic suspense genre. I can't wait to see what she does next.
Sophie Flynn
A superbly accomplished debut. The writing is precise and evocative, and the story snakes along, wrapping more tightly around your body until it has you in a death grip with the finale. Shah is one to watch
Louise Beech
Reading HER is like spending time with a beautiful addictive friend whom you can't stay away from, but can't quite trust. A gripping story of inequality, abuse, grief and female solidarity, HER enthrals all the way to its shocking conclusion.
Cate Ray
A tense and gripping read that asks: who can you really trust? The story is as vividly evocative as it is darkly compelling; I loved it.
Louisa Reid
Taut and compelling, HER takes you on a ride of a lifetime. With twists that you won't see coming and Shah's razor-sharp prose that is sure to keep you turning the pages, HER is a debut that everyone will be talking about. Unputdownable
Awais Khan
A compelling and pacy read, with an intricately twisty plot and a great exploration of the complexities of womanhood and female friendship and the many ways we hide the truth from others and ourselves.
Philippa East
Drew me in from the start and kept me in its thrall all the way through. The growing sense of menace and mystery, and the developing relationship between the two very different, very well-drawn female characters really had me hooked. Then the twists started coming and I absolutely couldn't put it down. I loved it!
Helen Cooper
An extraordinary debut . . . a psychological thriller with creeping tension exploring a twisted and toxic relationship of two women. Engaging and brilliantly page turning.
Jacqui Rose
A taut psychological thriller that simmers with a sense of menace. Sharp and suspenseful, Her delicately weaves complex themes into a gripping premise.
Kia Abdullah
Dark and unsettling with two intriguing main characters, an evocative setting, and a non-stop storyline, Her is so, so good. I loved it!
Andrea Mara
I absolutely loved this taut and twisty tale of two very different women. Mira handles her characters with skill and care, constantly surprising the reader at every turn, as Rani and Natalie's friendship develops. A fresh new voice in the psychological thriller market.
Ronali Collings
Beautifully written, twisty and completely unpredictable - I could never have guessed that ending. Looking forward to seeing what Mira writes next.
Charlotte Duckworth
With beautifully drawn characters that really get under your skin and a gasp-out-loud twist, this was a hugely enjoyable read
Hannah King
Gripping and emotionally astute - I enjoyed it very much
Laura Marshall
Beautifully highlights the ups and downs of friendship but also gripping in terms of writing style and pace.
