Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Dexter

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Rhiannon Lewis was your average, every day, typical 27-year-old British woman, holding down a dull office job, socialising with her friends and settling down with her loving boyfriend.

But you’d be wrong.

The job, the friends, the boyfriend are all part of the façade which help Rhiannon hide what she really is – the haunter of chat rooms, the baiter of paedophiles, the stalker of the men who only come out at night.

In this fiercely funny and incredibly dark debut thriller, dubbed “the lovechild of Bridget Jones and Dexter Morgan,” Sweetpea hijacks the Bridget Jones trope and buries it in the woods. Sweetpea is anything but average. Anything but every day.

But typically C.J. Skuse.

Best known for her addictively dark and funny YA novels, with Sweetpea C. J. is now poised to take the grown-up fiction market by storm in 2017.
