Publisher's Summary

She made her bed. You’ll lie in it.

Rebecca only wanted to help out - to be kind. Richard seemed so alone after his wife, Nicole, died, and Rebecca wanted to make sure he knew he had someone on whom to rely.

But now, she’s in Nicole’s immaculate house. Drinking from her favourite crystal wine glass. Keeping shoes in her orderly closet. Comforting her sweet and grieving stepdaughter. It feels like Rebecca is living another woman’s life.

And as she gets to know the neighbours, Rebecca hears stories that make her wonder: Was free-spirited Nicole happy in this perfect life, or did she feel trapped? Did she feel, as Rebecca is beginning to, that something wasn’t quite right?

The story everyone’s talking about! If you loved The Girl on the Train, The Wife Between Us and The Girl Before, you’ll be totally gripped and unable to put down this twisty pause-resisting psychological thriller.

Not the best.,.

I don’t know if I’m just a genius that has lived all these years unaware of my brilliance or I’ve “read” too many psychological thrillers or maybe I just got lucky but, I figured out the plot and who-done-it, somewhere in the first third of the book.

I kept listening in the hopes that I was wrong... but I wasn’t. The “shocking twist” was disappointing for me.

“Shocking” twist aside, the over all story pace was slow and the end wasn’t terribly satisfying.

Blah

Present Day-Past Day, if they were to say this one more time, I wanted to slit my own wrist. I like psychological dramas, this is more of a lifetime movie. I would save my credit.

How to get through this book:

Listen whilst telling yourself this far fetched plot could happen in a world without Police or media.
