A quest for petty revenge becomes a search for the truth… The Grass Widow, a suspenseful tale of adultery, murder and intrigue in a domestic setting, is the debut novel by Vanessa Edwards.


Ditched by her married lover Hugh on the day she was made redundant, Leonie plans to make life difficult for him. As she inveigles her way into his house as a cleaner, her fellow cleaners also have hidden agendas. At the centre of this web is the gardener Simon: handsome, ruthless and plausible, with a shady past and lofty ambitions.


Vanessa Edwards grew up writing stories and poems. After reading Philosophy (and writing stories and poems) at UCL, she was a lawyer and legal translator. She took early retirement and turned to her lifelong dream of writing.
