A house with a secret. A woman with nothing to lose.

When Maggie sees the beautiful Venetian blinds moving in the Caldwells’ front window, she freezes. Her favorite neighbours Cady and Josh are away, so who is in their house?

The pretty young woman who answers the door tells a convincing story. She’s Sarah. The house-sitter. Just here for a month. An old friend of Cady’s who needed a place to stay. She’s pleasant and warm, and Maggie wanders back to her house thinking she might have made a new friend. Yet she can’t help but wonder why Cady never mentioned Sarah.

What Maggie doesn’t know is that on the other side of the door, Sarah is starting to panic. No one was meant to see her at 214 Palmer Street…

An unputdownable psychological thriller from number one bestseller Karen McQuestion, which will make you question what secrets your own neighbors are hiding… For fans of The Girl on the Train, The Woman in the Window and Gone Girl.

Why (have I chosen to read it)?

This author is new to me, but I enjoy books from this publisher, so when I came across this psychological thriller it seemed to fit in exactly with the type of book I wanted to read next. 

While (I am reading it)

Spring is arriving fast, and so I have done my final “walk up the mountain” for this season.  I follow signed paths, and like to go up early in the morning before most skiers are around.  The local slopes are open for another week, but now I’m looking forward to the summer paths opening up.

To see all the thrillers I have reviewed, take a look at my webpage dedicated to the thrillers and crime genre.


All the best, Emma
