What I Thought
I knew I was going to enjoy this as soon as I started reading but I didn’t expect that! What a fantastic story, at first it seems like your average who done it until we learn more about the neighbours.. not everything is as perfect as it seems. It reminded me a bit of Desperate Housewives which I loved and Jane made me think of Bree, absolutely perfect as far as everyone can see, the perfect doctors wife in her perfect home with her perfect kids, part of the perfect yummy mummies PTA group. You just know nothing is ever that perfect! Then theres Rachel next door who doesn’t want to get involved and likes to keep her and her family to herself until her daughter Clare goes missing and more bad news follows.
I thought I had this so pinned down I was like ah yeah I know what happened here but Phoebe really got one over on me for sure. I stayed up reading until 2am because I just couldn’t put it down, I needed to know what was going on and what really happened and by the end of it I was like damn!! Holy crap I didn’t expect that.
A very well written psychological thriller it kept me on my toes, really engaging I highly recommend it.
