Hallie Ephron is the New York Times bestselling author of Never Tell a Lie, Come and Find Me, There Was an Old Woman, and Night Night, Sleep Tight. For twelve years she was the crime fiction reviewer for the Boston Globe. The daughter of Hollywood screenwriters, she grew up in Beverly Hills, and lives near Boston, Massachusetts.


"The story line in "You'll Never Know, Dear" unspools with a strong psychological component and a sense of real people involved in relatable situations....An accessible, easy read that deftly integrates the mystery genre with women's fiction, it's made compelling by the depth and resonance of the relationships." -- Nickolas Butler, internationally bestselling author of Shotgun Lovesongs and The Hearts of Men

"The story zigs and then zags, leading the reader to be convinced of someone's innocence, duplicity or guilt and then forced to re-evaluate...After reading "You'll Never Know, Dear," I tracked down 2015's "Night Night, Sleep Tight"....and plan to dive into her other books." -- Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"[A] character-driven page-turner...[an] engaging portrait of three generations of bickering, bull-headed, but loving women challenged to become their bravest and best selves." -- Publishers Weekly

"Hallie Ephron is the queen of secrets--and the star of suburban noir." -- Hank Phillippi Ryan, award-winning author of Say No More

Praise for Hallie Ephron: "Ephron's novels are gripping because her characters are just real and nuanced enough to identify with. Ultimately, it's compassion that makes us stay up late reading, and, nose in book, miss our subway stop the next morning." -- Boston Globe

"Ephron understands that the fears we inflict upon ourselves can be more crippling than a man with a gun." -- Mystery Scene

"Would have been a great vehicle for Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, including all the slightly creepy dolls." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Strong characters and vivid sense of place." -- Booklist

"I LOVED this book! Great characters, great sense of place, great suspense. And the doll-making background was fascinating." -- Deborah Crombie, New York Times best selling author of Garden of Lamentations

"A poignant portrayal of how tragedies often have a trickle-down effect...Though Ephron's work is often classified as women's fiction, it should appeal to anybody who enjoys intelligent, stylistic suspense. After all, questions of family, fidelity, and forgiveness are universal." --
