‘Wonderful – suspense and surprises, real characters and a scary, ominous backbeat’

‘I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough’

It starts as a game at a book group one night. Never Have I Ever… done something I shouldn’t.

But Amy Whey has done something she shouldn’t. And Roux, the glamorous newcomer to Amy’s suburban neighbourhood, knows exactly what that is.

Roux promises she will go away – if Amy plays by her rules.

But Amy isn’t prepared to lose everything. She’s going to fight back, and in this escalating game of cat and mouse, there can be only one winner.

‘Wow – what a book! I devoured it in one day’

The new edge-of-your-seat domestic thriller from Joshilyn Jackson – Mother May I – is out in May 2021 and available to pre-order now.

Publisher Review

Brilliant... horribly credible, and Jackson's dialogue and scene-painting are impeccable as each chapter addictively advances the battle of wits * Sunday Times, Thriller of the Month * Wonderful - suspense and surprises, real characters and a scary, ominous backbeat. This feels like the book Jackson was born to write -- Lee Child A smart, original thriller with real, compelling characters and a chilling reveal. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough -- Clare Mackintosh Jackson writes the kind of book that will set even the most blameless on edge, leaving us to wonder who might know our imperfect histories. Once I started, I couldn't put this one down -- Christina Dalcher, author of Vox Full of masterful suspense, this is one hell of a thriller * Heat * Our old friend, the psychological thriller, absolutely immaculately done, to be read in one breathless sitting -- India Knight * Sunday Times Magazine * A heart-pounding tale of cat and mouse with twists you won't see coming. Just when you think you couldn't be more shocked, Jackson delivers a mind-blowing ending. Riveting! -- Liv Constantine A riveting read that will get you wondering who you can trust -- Nina Pottell * Prima Magazine * This book will make you gasp with shock. A summer must-read! * Woman * Jackson raises the stakes again and again in this skilfully plotted novel -- Laura Wilson * Guardian * Wow - what a book! I devoured it in one day, and it's a book that will stay with me for a long time. It is such a compelling story, but for me even more important than the brilliant and original plot was the strength and clarity of the characters -- Rachel Abbott The more Roux and Amy became obsessed with each other, the more obsessed I became with the book ... By the time of the explosive, entirely unexpected climax, I was clinging to the edge of my seat -- Sara Gruen Nail-biting suspense ... Jackson builds on her talent for creating imperfect, capable and multi-layered characters to write smart suspense, driven by the intelligence and determination of the instigator and her prey * Booklist * One of those thrillers with such a distinct style and such rich writing you simultaneously want to turn the pages but also just want to slow down and soak it up. Amazing -- Amy Lloyd Dark, twisty and brilliantly plotted. Never Have I Ever is a compelling game of cat and mouse. Couldn't put it down -- Alice Clark-Platts Well-developed, memorable characters and an action-packed plot * Publisher's Weekly * Chock-full of dramatic reveals and twisty turns... Be warned: It's a stay-up-all-night kind of book. Compulsively readable * Kirkus Reviews * [Jackson's] prowess at writing affecting, character-driven fiction is on full display, and readers will devour the twisty, consuming story * Library Journal * A tale of moral suspense in addition to a psychological thriller. Its several plot twists are surprising and effective ... Many books claim to be the perfect beach read. This one doesn't, but it certainly fits the bill * Wall Street Journal *
