A small community. A deadly secret.
Until recently, Isobel has always loved The Close. A quiet road of large houses tucked away in the beautiful English countryside, it seemed like the perfect place to live.
Then, six months ago, a young man was killed in a mysterious hit and run incident. The police investigated but no one was charged. It’s left a bad feeling in this little community, a feeling that someone knows more than they are saying.
So, when new neighbour Linette arrives, Isobel thinks it’s the perfect chance to make a fresh start, to repair relationships and rebuild her community.
But someone else has a very different plan, and bad things start to happen. When there’s another death, Isobel realises her home, her marriage and her family all are in terrible danger.
She’s certain that what’s happening is connected to the hit and run. But how?
Why really happened on the night of the fatal accident? And above all, who is Linette and why does she really want?
Holy Moly!! What an incredible book this was. I think we can all agree that neighbours are so overrated and if you have a good set then not only are you extremely lucky but you are also living in the minority.
Well, if you think you have bad neighbours WAIT until you read about these guys at The Close.
Isobel is literally the only character I liked, well I also liked her husband for a short time until he started acting strange, but I really connected with Isobel and I felt sorry for her so much. I could feel the pain she was going through and I just wanted to hug her and tell her everything is going to be ok.
But… when I first thought that I really didn’t expect that it actually really wasn’t going to be.
Just when you think things can’t possibly get any worse on such a small street of houses, they do – A LOT worse.
Trust me, you will not know who to trust on this street and you will suddenly become thankful for the neighbours you do have.
