Elizabeth Heathcote’s Undertow is a heart-pounding psychological thriller that’s perfect for fans of Disclaimer and Apple Tree Yard. Carmen is happily married to Tom, but she knows she’ll always live in the shadow of another woman - not Tom’s polite, determinedly respectable ex-wife Laura, but the lover that ended his first marriage: Zena. Zena who was shockingly beautiful. Zena who drowned swimming late one night. Carmen can overlook her husband's dead mistress . . . until she starts to suspect that he might have been the person who killed her.

What happens when love, marriage and children don't come in the expected order? The dazzling, delightful new novel First Comes Love that's quintessential Emily Giffin, from the Number One New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed.
