I should never have become friends with the couple upstairs…
The first time I step inside this cosy apartment with its sash windows, just minutes from the sea, I think it would be the perfect place for me and my partner Zac to start again. A chance to leave our troubled past behind.
Chris and Vanessa the couple upstairs, are so welcoming: smiles, flowers, a home-baked cake. It’s strange how he does all the talking, and she seems so shy, but I’m just thrilled to have new friends nearby.
But everything starts to go wrong… my business engine to crumble, I can’t ignore the whispers at our housewarming party and loud arguments from upstairs keep me awake at night. I can’t sleep, can’t think straight and I feel like someone is watching me in my own home.
And then Zac comes home one afternoon, his face clenched with fury, and says he knows what’s going on. He knows about my secret…
He won’t listen to me. He storms out and I’m left in tears, completely devastated.
Why has my life fallen apart since we moved here? Am I going mad? Or is someone trying to destroy us?
If only I’d known what I know now.
If only I hadn’t trusted the couple upstairs.
First of all I would like to thank NetGalley and the Publisher for my requested copy of this Ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Seriously guys … this is not a book you want to miss out on. If you love a good thriller then this is the book for you. It was incredibly fast paced throughout – honestly didn’t have a moment to catch my breath. The descriptive writing was on point and the characters were simply brilliant.
I’ve never met a sneakier couple than the Jackson’s. These two left my head spinning. Just goes to show, you can’t really trust anyone, you will never know when something is just an act to reel you in until your in too deep and it’s only you in trouble of getting burned (almost quite literally in this case)
I think In the beginning I really felt for Vanessa – and she seemed to be becoming my favourite character – but as Nina and Zac started to run into problems with their relationship I couldn’t help but want to be with Nina, especially since I was having my own issues and it seemed like what she was going through. I was going through. It was quite bizarre.
It wasn’t long until I realised just who might be behind all the issues in Nina and Zac’s life. I mean part of me thought I had to be wrong but it was there, my gut instinct and you always have to trust that right?
And then we find out the who, the what and the why and my mind was completely blown. I could not stop until the book was finished.
This was an AMAZING read that you DO NOT want to miss out on.
