Praise for One Step Behind
“The lives of two troubled women intertwine in this unsettling psychological thriller….A nice see-sawing of emotions and motives will keep most readers guessing to the end. North remains a writer to watch.”—Publishers Weekly
A great psychological thriller with twists and turns that keep the reader engaged to the very end.”—Red Carpet Crash
Praise for The Perfect Son

“[A] perfect summer thriller…. The author’s ability to create a sense of escalating unease is one of her most notable achievements…. The twist in The Perfect Son is a big one.”–The Columbus Dispatch

“[An] emotionally harrowing debut…an intimate, unbalancing mix of grief, paranoia, gaslighting, maternal protectiveness, and profound compassion.”–Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Taking a page from The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn, The Perfect Son is a perfect psychological thriller…this tour de force novel is shocking.”–Fresh Fiction

“A powerful, unpredictable debut thriller about a mother’s attempt to reassemble her life from the shards of tragedy. Lauren North’s skillful narrative casts everyone as a suspect and keeps the reader guessing until the final emotion-packed pages.”–David Bell, USA Today bestselling author of The Request

“A fast-paced psychological thriller.”–Book Riot

“A heartrending evocation of grief that packs a devious punch. It left me reeling.”–Lesley Kara, international bestselling author of The Rumor
