Louise Jensen has signed a three-book deal with HQ, an imprint of HarperCollins. Published in 20 languages, Louise has sold over a million copies. The first book under contract, The Family, will be published in October 2019 in paperback, e-book and audio.
The Family follows a mother and daughter, Laura and Tilly, who, when all seems lost, turn to a group of apparently well-meaning strangers for help. But as they settle into their new community, sinister things begin to happen and Tilly becomes enthralled by the ‘head’ of their new family, Alex. It becomes clear to Laura that she needs to get her daughter away from Alex but she may have already left it too late.
Louise said: ‘I’m incredibly excited to be in the expert hands of Lisa Milton and have received such a warm welcome from the dynamic and creative HQ team. The Family is full of twists and I can’t wait to share it with readers.’
