Heidi is a working mom and wife who is always a good person. When she takes in a young single mom she finds on the street, it just seems to be another good deed. As Willow and her infant daughter settle in - against the wishes of Heidi's husband and daughter - things take a darker turn. Fans of Girl on the Train and Gone Girl will love this one. Kubica keeps the suspense going in each chapter and every time you think you've figured out the secret, something new pops up to make you doubt yourself.— From Andi
"Thrilling and illuminating... Pretty Baby] raises the ante on the genre and announces the welcome second coming of a talent well worth watching." --LA Times Heidi Wood has always been a charitable woman. Still, her husband and daughter are horrified when Heidi returns home one day with a young woman named Willow and her four-month-old baby in tow. Disheveled and apparently homeless, this girl could be a criminal--or worse. Nevertheless, Heidi invites Willow and the baby to take refuge in their home, despite her family's objections. As clues into Willow's past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she's willing to go to help a stranger. What starts as an act of kindness quickly spirals into an unrelenting web of lies and a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.
