Guest Post – Don’t you Dare
by A J Waines
Two people. One dead body
Who’s going to crack first?
I loved writing Don’t you Dare. It’s a true psychological thriller, but as in all my books, there’s a crime and a mystery involved too! Not all is what it seems.
As a former psychotherapist, I’ve always been interested in people’s motives for the choices they make. In this book, a mistake, then a misunderstanding leave a mother and daughter trapped in a terrible dilemma that will affect their lives forever. Neither of them plans to commit a crime, but something awful takes place that sends their lives spiralling out of control.
In Don’t you Dare, I wanted a dreadful crime to be committed by the lead character, but for a very good reason, and for this reason to be kept hidden from the other person involved (and the reader!). The tension in the book comes from the different ways in which Beth, twenty-three, and her mother, Rachel, handle the aftermath of what they’ve done.
I always love stories involving lies and secrets and this novel has plenty of them, with a big twist at the end! Don’t you Dare also explores what happens when two people are forced to share a chilling secret and one of them loses their nerve. It’s the kind of situation that almost anyone could find themselves in! It’s a nail-biting ride and perfect for fans of Ruth Ware, C.L Taylor and Clare Mackintosh!
Don’t you Dare is AJ Waines’ seventh thriller and will be published on May 8 by Bloodhound Books. You can find her books HERE.
