Masterful and clever ... Nikki Smith is the queen of misdirection ... a spectacular debut.
Lauren North (author of The Perfect Betrayal)
I thought this was wonderfully written and that Nikki captured perfectly those very early and confusing days of motherhood. The conflicting emotions and the never-quite-sure what is really going on was expertly handled and really quite haunting. Overall, a cleverly written, haunting and compelling book. It drew me in and had me immediately gripped.
Karen Hamilton
All In Her Head is tense and very moving
Harriet Tyce (author of Blood Orange)
A modern, clever, daring story that grips from the thrilling opening scene to the final page. Loved it.
Amanda Reynolds
What a stunning debut this is - chilling, emotional and full of surprises, impossible to put down.
Clare Empson
An intense, haunting tale in which nothing is quite what it seems... Brilliantly written with plenty of surprises along the way - a hugely impressive debut.
TM Logan
Bloody hell this book is powerful and tense and a bit terrifying. It had my head spinning. Nikki Smith is a major new talent and I can't wait to read her next one.
Laura Pearson
An intense psychological thriller, full of twists and turns, yet at the same time, a convincing and emotional portraite of motherhood ... an excellent debut.
Jenny Quintana
A tense, compelling and haunting debut which had me gripped from the first page.

A twist that will make you feel like you've been hit by an express train
Jake Kerridge, Daily Express
A tense and powerful read about how a seemingly perfect life can fall apart in an instant.
Natasha Harding, The Sun
Smith expertly takes the narrative in another direction that makes you sit up and reassess everything you thought you knew. A confident and thought provoking debut.
As soon as you've finished, you'll be dying to start again to try and spot the clues you missed. Clever and haunting, the psychological element is masterfully interwoven with the different perspectives and time jumps.
Woman's Weekly
A tense psychological thriller
