Mistake I Made

We all think we know who we are.

What we’re capable of.

Roz is a single mother, a physiotherapist, a sister, a friend. She is also desperate.

Her business has gone under, she’s crippled by debt and she’s just had to explain to her son why someone’s taken all their furniture away.

But now a stranger has made her an offer. For one night with her, he’ll pay her enough to bring her back from the edge.

Roz has a choice to make.


Paula Daly has fast become one of my favourite authors. Her plots are gripping and the Lake District settings are glorious. Just perfect. (Also, you know it’s a good book when you’re reading the left hand page and you have to physically cover the right hand page to stop yourself jumping ahead!) – Jill Mansell

‘Her controversial story will leave you questioning your own morals.’ – Essentials

‘Daly has a real gift for mixing insightful writing on domestic life with a suspenseful premise.’ –Booklist

Thouroughly enjoyable – a big-hearted, empathetic novel about ordinary lives and the tremors that can rock them. It’s also very funny.’ – Guardian
