When Detective Natalie Ward is called to the home of fourteen-year-old Roxy Curtis she can't help but empathise with Roxy's distraught mother Cathy. Roxy hasn't come home, last seen heading next door for a sleepover with her best friend Ellie. As the mother of two teenagers herself, Natalie knows that this is every parent's worst nightmare.
But when Roxy's body is found in the basement of a beautiful Victorian mansion on the other side of town, Natalie's darkest fears are confirmed. What was Roxy doing there? The people who knew her best should know-but Cathy seems evasive, and Ellie refuses to talk. Natalie is determined to find out what secrets they are keeping.....
Then Roxy's mother Cathy disappears.
When her body is found two days later, Natalie is forced to face the fact that Roxy's loved ones are in real danger. Things take a more sinister turn when Ellie Vanishes, her mobile phone switched off. Is Ellie hiding something about the night Roxy died that could put her in terrible danger? And can Natalie work it out before another innocent life is taken?
Gripping, fast-paced and nail-bitingly tense, this book will keep you flying through the pages long into the night. Perfect for fans of Angela Marsons, Rachel Abbott and Karin Slaughter.

The Sleepover is book 4 in the Natalie Ward series.
I loved the first three books in this series and this one did not disappoint either. The Natalie Ward series is just getting better and better.
The book, as the others, gets you hooked from the very first page and whilst each can easily be read as a standalone book we learn a little more about Natalie, her family and colleagues as the series progresses.
There's a fire in a house and a body is found in the back. Who's is it? and what were they doing there?
This book has lots of great strong characters that jump from the page. You can see how they all interlink and it keeps you wondering who has committed this crime. Every time I thought I knew I was proved wrong!
The Sleepover is easy to read and keeps you guessing and gripped from start to finish.
Loved it and can't wait for book 5.
If I could give more than 5* I would.
