My Review:

A tantalizing book made even more interesting by the great characters and amazing plotline – this alone deserves acclaim!

A sleepy, quaint town, where nothing interesting ever happens, until Clare Edwards is found, dead – by the locally gossiped about weirdo – you know the one, every town has one. Nathan, he once worked for the school but got sacked after he allegedly followed a girl home.

Who killed her ? So many suspects ….. is it one of the local boys, all wanting Clare’s attention, but ignored by her?

Or Jack – The local doctor and husband of Jane, Clare’s neighbors and parents of Harry – one of the hot teenage boys vying for Clare’s attention – they say 90% of the time the victim knows their murderer. The neighbors haven’t seen anything, or have they? do they know more than they are letting on? Would Jane tell, even if she did know and risk losing her marriage, family, reputation and the beautiful home that shes built up?

She’s put up with a lot, has Jane, has it all got too much, after her needing hospital treatment at the hands of Jack.

Is it time she told her secret? She could talk to DS Madelaine Shaw, she’d help her – wouldn’t she?

What about Clare’s Mum – Rachel, poor frail Rachel. And Ian – Clare’s stepdad, he soon took over Rachel and Clare’s lives when her real Dad died, no sign of him in their house excists, no photos – has Ian killed her in a fit of rage? He was in the army – hes strong, big, it wouldnt take much to hurt Clare, even by accident.

who is it, someone knows……..

If you want to know the answers, you will have to read The Girl Next Door, I would highly recommend you do, this psychological page-turner truly ticks all the boxes with characters who pull you in and make you believe in them. The story is flooded with believable twists that will make you wonder if you’re actually reading a factual – not fictional book. Phoebe Morgan hits the top spot with this one, 5 Stars from me. I really loved this book, it’s gritty, compelling and sensational.
