MY REVIEW

5 stars *****

THE GIRL NEXT DOOR was my chosen holiday read; I certainly made the right call!
The premise pulled me in right away; Jane and her apparently perfect life in a quiet town. But all is not what it seems …
Once I began reading, the strong writing and vivid, well-developed characters got me quickly invested in the story. In addition, the twisty, clever plotting kept me turning the pages until way past bedtime.
I raced through, finding this a pacy and gripping book, with a chilling conclusion that I did not anticipate!
Highly recommended for fans of well-written, pacy psychological thrillers.
