about

Annie Phillips is thrilled to leave her past behind and begin a shiny new life on Belvedere Island, as a nanny for the picture-perfect Cohen family. In no time at all, she falls in love with the Cohens, especially with Libby, the beautiful young matriarch of the family. Life is better than she ever imagined. She even finds romance with the boy next door.

All too soon cracks appear in Annie's seemingly perfect world. She's blamed for mistakes she doesn't remember making. Her bedroom door comes unhinged, and she feels like she's always being watched. Libby, who once felt like a big sister, is suddenly cold and unforgiving. As she struggles to keep up with the demands of her new life, Annie's fear gives way to frightening hallucinations. Is she tumbling into madness, or is something sinister at play?

The Ruining is a complex ride through first love, chilling manipulation, and the terrifying depths of insanity.

Editorial Reviews

"A compelling psychological thriller presents a vulnerable girl on the brink of madness. Collomore builds the suspense from Annie’s viewpoint until readers will be flipping through the pages. . . . Gripping stuff."—Kirkus, starred review

"Collomore's novel builds at a pitch-perfect pace, and readers will feel appropriately uncomfortable as it all unfolds. Gripping, unputdownable stuff."—Booklist
