It all happens so quickly. One day you’re living the dream, commuting to work by riverbus with your charismatic neighbour Kit in the seat beside you. The next, Kit hasn’t turned up for the boat and his wife Melia has reported him missing.
When you get off at your stop, the police are waiting. Another passenger saw you and Kit arguing on the boat home the night before and the police say that you had a reason to want him dead. You protest. You and Kit are friends – ask Melia, she’ll vouch for you. And who exactly is this other passenger pointing the finger? What do they know about your lives?
No, whatever danger followed you home last night, you are innocent, totally innocent.
I am a big fan of Louise Candlish’s books, they are all brilliant including this one. It’s about Jamie and his friend Kit, when Kit goes missing the police want to know what happened the night a witness saw him and Jamie having a tussle, now the police want to speak to Jamie, does Jamie know where Kit is or are more secrets going to unravel as we are this story take a few dramatic turns. You never know who is really watching you. A dramatic gripping thriller that will leave you shocked to the core.

MEET THE NEIGHBOURS YOU’LL LOVE TO HATE
Until Darren and Jodie move in, Lowland Way is a suburban paradise. Beautiful homes. Friendly neighbours. Kids playing out in the street. But Darren and Jodie don’t follow the rules and soon disputes over loud music and parking rights escalate to threats of violence.
Then, early one Sunday, a horrific crime shocks the street. As the police go house-to-house, the residents close ranks and everyone’s story is the same: They did it.
But there’s a problem. The police don’t agree. And the door they’re knocking on next is yours.
I am a big fan of Louise’s books, I have loved every single one of them, but this one was slightly different and didn’t hold my attention as much. I loved the storyline, it was original and quirky but it just lacked something, when reading the end I just felt a bit deflated and had hoped for a better ending.

FOR BETTER, FOR WORSE.
When Fi Lawson arrives home to find strangers moving into her house, she is plunged into terror and confusion. She and her husband Bram have owned their home on Trinity Avenue for years and have no intention of selling. How can this other family possibly think the house is theirs? And why has Bram disappeared when she needs him most?
FOR RICHER, FOR POORER.
Bram has made a catastrophic mistake and now he is paying. Unable to see his wife, his children or his home, he has nothing left but to settle scores. As the nightmare takes grip, both Bram and Fi try to make sense of the events that led to a devastating crime. What has he hidden from her – and what has she hidden from him? And will either survive the chilling truth – that there are far worse things you can lose than your house?
TILL DEATH US DO PART.
I have enjoyed all of Louise’s books so far and I loved how this story was bought together by two points of view. I think the plot line is different but it really works. There is a twist at the end which made it complete. I liked the way that places near to where I live where mentioned it makes me feel part of the story. I did find it a little confusing at times but in the end a good read.

In the heady swelter of a London summer, the Elm Hill lido opens.
For teacher Natalie Steele, the school holiday typically means weeks of carefully planned activities with her husband Ed and their daughter Molly. But not this year.
Despite Molly’s extreme phobia of the water, Natalie is drawn to the lido and its dazzling social scene, led by the glamorous Lara Channing. Soon Natalie is spending long, intoxicating days with Lara at the pool – and intimate evenings at her home. Natalie’s real life begins to feel very far away.
But is the new friendship everything it seems? Why is Natalie haunted by memories from another summer years ago? And, without realising, has she been swept dangerously out of her depth?

An outstanding book you will want to get your hands on.

My name is Amber Fraser. I’ve just moved in at Number 40, Lime Park Road. You’ll come to think of me as a loving wife, a thoughtful neighbour and a trusted friend.
This is a lie.
When Christy and Joe Davenport are handed the keys to Number 40 on picture-perfect Lime Park Road, Christy knows it should be a dream come true. How strange though that the house was on the market for such a low price. That the previous owners, the Frasers, had renovated the entire property yet moved out within a year. That none of the neighbours will talk to Christy.
As her curiosity begins to give way to obsession, Christy finds herself drawn deeper into the mystery of the house’s previous occupants – and the dark and shocking secret that tore the street apart . .
I am a big fan of Louise Candlish’s books. Thank you to lovereading for sending me a copy of this book. I thoroughly recommend reading one of Louise’s books as they are brilliant. I found this one thought provoking, the story has twists and turns that you would never have imagined. You can tell that this has been very well researched into to, and you discover hidden depths throughout the story. I love how the story was set out, going from Amber’s story to Christy’s story. A real page turner as you don’t know what you will discover on the next page. This story kept me hooked from beginning till the end.

On a perfect summer’s day in Paris, tourists on the river watch in shock as a small boy falls into the Seine and disappears below the surface. As his mother stands frozen, a stranger takes a breath and leaps….
I hadn’t read any of Louise Candlish books before, I really enjoyed this one as it was easy to make sense of, I liked the way the book was written as it jumps from future to the past so you can understand the family history. Joanna has a daughter called Holly who has post natal depression after having her son Mikey, Joanna takes them away to Paris and events take a dramatic turn and their paths cross with James and Alexa. This turn then alters their lives for ever.
This book is definitely a page turner and its true what it says on the front cover , I couldn’t put it down wondering what was going to happen next. The trip into Joanna’s past kept me intrigued. I wasn’t expecting the twist that happened near the end either it made me think why hadn’t i ever read a Louise Candlish book before. I will definitely be recommending this book.
