Description

From the bestselling author of Our Little Secret comes a suspenseful new thriller featuring two estranged sisters desperate to keep their deepest and darkest secret where it belongs—in the past.

When I open the door, I see a face more than anything, the paleness of it stark against the dark hair. Long hair, familiar. Blue, damaged eyes. Immediately, I feel my knees might give out, like I might fall to the ground. I cover my mouth with both hands and stare.

It’s her. It’s Ruth Van Ness. My sister.

Alexandra Van Ness has the perfect life. She lives in an idyllic resort town tucked away in the Rocky Mountains, shares a designer loft with her handsome boyfriend, Chase, and has her dream job working in child protection. Every day, Alex goes above and beyond to save children at risk.

But when her long-lost sister, Ruth, unexpectedly shows up at her door asking for help, Alex’s perfect life is upended. Growing up, Ruth was always the troublemaker, pulling Alex into her messes, and this time will be no different. Their relationship is fraught with hurts and regrets from their childhood that bind them to silence, but they can’t outrun them forever.

Alex lets Ruth stay under one condition: we will never, ever, talk about the past. But when a local child is in danger, Alex becomes very involved and the secrets from long ago come back to haunt her with terrible consequences for everyone.

A gripping look at the inescapable bond between sisters—and the devastating cost of a single mistake—Hurry Home will keep readers guessing who is telling the truth and who is lying until the very last page.

Editorial Reviews

“In Roz Nay’s tightly woven debut, Our Little Secret, we meet Angela—a wily woman with a twisted love story, who is in quite a heap of trouble. As the story unfolds and the mystery deepens, the breadcrumbs Nay expertly leaves behind reveal a dark truth you won’t see coming. Ruth Ware fans will love this compulsive, impossible-to-put-down novel!
KARMA BROWN, bestselling author of Come Away with Me and The Choices We Make


“A taut, beautifully written story of sisters, motherhood, and the kind of secrets that turn a person into a monster. You won’t know who to trust in this sinister tale of childhood gone wrong. I devoured it.”
ROBYN HARDING, bestselling author of The Party and The Arrangement


“A clever and addictive read that had me enthralled from the first chapter all the way to the shocking twist that left me breathless. I stayed in bed one lazy afternoon and polished it off, then stared up at my ceiling, stunned that it was over and still half in love with the characters. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a debut this good. Roz Nay is going to be a name we hear a lot of in the future.”
CHEVY STEVENS, bestselling author of Still Missing


“A stunning debut. . . . Our Little Secret is a deliciously twisted novel about a love triangle. It’s so suspenseful your heart will be pounding as you hurry to the end. Roz Nay has proven she can write the thriller you haven't read before.”
LIZ FENTON and LISA STEINKE, authors of The Good Widow


A gripping and unsettling story, that left me guessing until the very end.” 
B. A. PARIS, author of Behind Closed Doors


“In Roz Nay’s twisty Hurry Home, nothing—and no one—is what it seems. Part nuanced exploration of how tragedy can shatter a family and part nail-biting psychological thriller, this book will keep you guessing until the end!”
KATHLEEN BARBER, author of Truth Be Told


“Compelling and unsettling, Hurry Home is a twisted tale of sisterhood and deftly explores how we may be done with the past, but it’s almost never done torturing us.”
VANESSA LILLIE, Amazon bestselling author of Little Voices


“Roz Nay’s remarkable storytelling is only matched by her astonishing ability to make readers care deeply about her flawed, very real characters. In Hurry Home, Nay weaves a taut, stunning, suspenseful, gripping tale about two sisters forever connected through their lies and losses. Captivating and brilliant twists and turns, expert plotting and pacing, and an emotional, incredibly satisfying ending—it’s a must-read page turner.”
SAMANTHA M. BAILEY, author of Woman on the Edge


“In Hurry Home, Roz Nay expertly creates real and deeply flawed characters who pull you in and hold you close, only to make you question and shift your allegiances as the story unfolds. This tale about two sisters who love—and love to hate—is as dark as it is twisty, emotional and suspenseful. It’s one that should be at the top of your ‘to read’ list right now.”
HANNAH MARY MCKINNON, bestselling author of Her Secret Son and The Neighbors


“When two sisters are reunited after a horrific family tragedy, each with a different version of the events that drove them apart, the line between truth and fiction begins to vanish. Pitch-perfect and flawlessly constructed, Hurry Home is never what it seems, telling a new story with each turn of the page. A breath-stealing, edge-of-your seat thriller!”
WENDY WALKER, national bestselling author of The Night Before


“Bound to draw comparisons to Ruth Ware and Sophie Hannah, Roz Nay’s crackling debut begins on the scene of a woman being interrogated by police for hours on end, and from there, unfurls a memorably twisted love story.”
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY


“Fans of Paula Hawkins and Ruth Ware will devour this twisty psychological thriller; Nay has expertly crafted a narrative that has the potential to veer in several directions, keeping the readers enthralled and guessing until the end.”
LIBRARY JOURNAL (Starred Review)


One of the best grip-lit titles of the year. . . . The writing, it must be said, is supremely seductive. Nay draws the reader in with compelling characters, deliciously dark themes, clever turns of phrase and heightened levels of suspense. What’s more, the intimate bond that Angela shares with charismatic, sun-kissed swim captain HP is nothing short of mesmerizing. Nay’s psychological thriller will have readers clamoring for more.”
TORONTO STAR


A guaranteed good read. . . . You’re likely to read it in one breathless sitting.”
THE GLOBE AND MAIL


Keeps readers enthralled with prose that’s at once lyrical and incisive.”
SHELF AWARENESS


A cracking read. Flicking back and forth from first love to a police cell, Our Little Secret builds to a deliciously dark conclusion.”
RUTH WARE, bestselling author of Woman in Cabin 10


“Nay expertly spins an insidious clever web, perfectly capturing the soaring heights and crushing lows of first love and how the loss of that love can make even the sanest people a little crazy. Carve out some time for this riveting, one-sitting read.”
KIRKUS REVIEWS


“In her debut novel, Roz Nay lures readers down a dark and tangled path that explores the aftereffects of lost first loves. Our Little Secret is a gripping addition to the psych thriller world.”
