General Note:
"Originally published as Haven't they grown in the United Kingdom in January 2020 by Hodder & Stoughton"--Title page verso.
Summary, etc.:
"All Beth has to do is drive her son to his soccer game, watch him play, and then return home. Just because she knows her ex-best friend lives near the field, that doesn't mean she has to drive past her house and try to catch a glimpse of her. Why would Beth do that and risk dredging up painful memories? She hasn't seen Flora for twelve years. She doesn't want to see her today--or ever again. But she can't resist. She parks outside the open gates of Newnham House, watches from across the road as Flora arrives and calls to her children Thomas and Emily to get out of the car. Except ... There's something terribly wrong. Flora looks the same, only older. Twelve years ago, Thomas and Emily were five and three years old. Today, they look precisely as they did then. They are Thomas and Emily without a doubt, but they haven't changed at all. They are no taller, no older. Why haven't they grown? How is it possible that they haven't grown up?"--Amazon.com.
Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2020 January #1
    Hannah never fails to surprise and entertain, whether with her police procedurals, her Agatha Christie mysteries, or her stand-alones. This one falls into the latter category, with its quotidian setting in which something is terribly wrong. On a whim, Beth Leeson stops by the home of her former best friend, Flora Braid, whom she hasn't seen in 12 years. There she watches Flora letting her children, Thomas and Emily, out of the car. But the children seem to be the same ages they were 12 years ago, not the teenagers they should be now. Later, Beth runs into Flora in town, and Flora runs from her. Beth must confront the guilt she feels for the way their friendship ended, but she isn't about to let go of the Braid family mystery until she gets to the bottom of it, a quest that eventually involves her traveling to Florida and facing mortal danger. Long-buried family secrets corrode the closest of family relationships, and a man's desire for physical human perfection leads to his taking unimaginable actions. A tightly wound tale of love gone awry. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
