'I started reading and couldn't stop ... a must-read that will tap into every mother's primal fears' Sophie Hannah 'A well-paced psychological thriller with more than a hint of Minette Walters about it' Sunday Express 'A thought provoking, taut and suspenseful thriller that you won't forget in a hurry.' Easy Living 'Millar is a genius at capturing the complicated emotions of parenthood, and her taut, suspenseful plot makes this an unputdownable read' MARIE CLAIRE 'This compelling and impressive debut is told from the point of view of all three women, and the reader's sympathy shifts constantly as the story becomes more creepy and unsettling when layers of intrigue and manipulation are slowly revealed' GUARDIAN 'Millar exposes brilliantly the dilemma of working mums and clearly has a lot of sympathy for a situation that seems loaded against them ... perceptive and well-written, The Playdate is utterly compelling and a sure-fire winner' RED 'British author Millar's engrossing debut offers an unsettling, realistic view of friendships, gossip, and loneliness...
