It's been 10 long months since Anna Fox last left her home. Ten months during which she has haunted the rooms of her old New York house like a ghost, lost in her memories, too terrified to step outside. Anna's lifeline to the real world is her window, where she sits day after day, watching her neighbours. When the Russells move in, Anna is instantly drawn to them. A picture-perfect family of three, they are an echo of the life that was once hers.

this was a book that I looked forward to listening to whilst in the car, I found myself looking forward to getting in the car, just so I could listen to it! I thought I had it figured it out many times but all the way up until the end, I was wrong every time! although I did figure out one of the main things kind of early on, but I presume most readers (listeners) would too. Very satisfied with the purchase. I Did get sick of the narrator's voice though.

It is the last season of high school life for Nadia Turner, a rebellious, grief-stricken, 17-year-old beauty. Mourning her own mother's recent suicide, she takes up with the local pastor's son. Luke Sheppard is 21, a former football star whose injury has reduced him to waiting tables at a diner. They are young; it's not serious. But the pregnancy that results from this teen romance - and the subsequent cover-up - will have an impact that goes far beyond their youth.

What if they hadn't gone? That's the question Clementine can't stop asking herself. It was just a backyard barbeque. They didn't know their hosts that well. They were friends of friends. They could so easily have said no. But she and her husband, Sam, said yes, and now they can never change what they did and didn't do that beautiful winter's day.

Was really disappointed with the ending. Was a big anti climax. a lot of story lines lead no where and seemed pointless.

seeing as this book was always recommended highly on the store page and had 4 and a half stars I thought it would be much more thrilling. I felt like I was waiting for a massive shocking twist moment the whole way through the book. Bit disappointing to be honest.
