"Seraphina has once again proven she's a master of domestic suspense. No one weaves a twisty, dark tale quite like her...I highly recommend this propulsive thriller." - Amber Garza, author of When I Was You on The Vanishing Hour

"Seraphina doesn't let up this time. In her heart-racing new thriller, she hangs you off a cliff, hits you with red herrings and suspects at every turn, and takes your breath away with her final startling twist." - Katie Tallo, International bestselling author of Dark August and Poison Lilies on The Vanishing Hour

"Welcome to the 'burbs...except you won't find much peace and quiet here. Brighton Hills is packed with secrets, lies, grief, and deceit, all of which make ON A QUIET STREET a brilliant and twisty tale. You'll be wondering who did what and to whom, who's telling the truth or feeding you lies, and you'll shift your allegiances faster than a tennis match. A fast-paced, highly-enjoyable and compulsive read that may well make you look at your entire neighborhood a little differently..." -- Hannah Mary McKinnon, internationally bestselling author of Never Coming Home

"A twisty thriller in the vein of The Girl on the Train."--Bustle

"A writer to watch."--Publishers Weekly

"Get this book when it comes out, read it, then ask everyone you know to make it into a movie! In case you can't tell, I am EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK!" -- Imogen Church, audiobook narrator

"Seraphina Nova Glass's twisty...thriller plunges the reader into a dark, compelling world of lies, adultery and murder. Bold, racy and masterfully plotted, Such a Good Wife kept me guessing from the very first page to the scorching, jaw-dropping conclusion." -- Rose Carlyle, #1 internationally bestselling author of The Girl in the Mirror

"In Such a Good Wife, Seraphina Nova Glass weaves a deliciously dark tale starring Melanie, a loving and overworked mother and wife having an affair with the handsome Luke...until he turns up dead. If you think you've figured out the culprit, think again. A sly and pulse-pounding murder mystery set in steamy Louisiana." -- Kimberly Belle, internationally bestselling author of Stranger in the Lake

"Glass weaves a taut web of suspicion, murder and revenge in this chilling tale. Sinister characters and blind ends increasingly heighten the tension until the harrowing final climax. Add Someone's Listening to your must read list!" -- Liv Constantine, internationally bestselling author of The Last Mrs. Parrish

"Unputdownable. I found myself suspecting everyone at some point. Twisty, original and a must-read--highly suspenseful and cleverly written." -- Karen Hamilton, bestselling author of The Perfect Girlfriend, on Someone's Listening
