Description of the book

An unmissable thriller of 2023 from the Sunday Times Number One bestselling author of One Last Secret and Both Of You…Lost. Missing. Murdered?
And both her husbands are suspects…

Kylie Gillingham’s disappearance has gripped the nation: the woman with a shocking secret – married to two men at the same time – is missing, presumed dead. And both her husbands are suspects.

DC Clements knows the dark side of human nature and that love can make people do treacherous things; you can’t presume anything when it comes to crimes of the heart. While Kylie’s two husbands remain prime suspects, her sons won’t accept that she is dead. Until a body is found, this scandalous and sad case remains wide open.

Stacie Jones lives a quiet life in a small village, nursed by her father as she recovers from illness, shielded from any disquieting news of the outside world. But their reclusive life is about to be shattered.

How are these families linked, and can any of them ever rebuild their lives in the wake of tragedy?

This explosive thriller from Number One bestseller Adele Parks examines what it is to be a family and the dangerous lengths that people will go to for those they love.

What others think

Reviews of Just Between Us –

I was so happy to have a sequel. There were too many unanswered questions at the end of the first one. I loved this and I was completely satisfied with the outcome.


Disappointing unfortunately. The storyline was just rubbish and made no sense to me. The characters were all extremely annoying and unlikeable and the plot was so far fetched, I just couldn’t connect with any of it. There are far better thrillers out there. Really wouldn’t recommend it. 13 hours of my life I’m not getting back.


Really liked this book shame I didn’t know it was a sequel


I love this narrator! If I could listen to most books by this narrator I really would. I hadn’t realised there was a first book to read beforehand but it didn’t impact the story and will now go back to listen to the first one!
