The House Next Door opening line: “Hurry,” I heard someone say.
Laura is frustrated. Her life is an endless round of being a mother, running errands and listening to her husband complain. Like he has it so bad? All he has to do each day is go to work! Then a single dad moves in next door and Laura is flattered by his attention. But is his attention something she really wants?
The House Next Door
Married mother of four Laura Sherman was thrilled when her new neighbour invited her on some errands. But a few quick tasks became a long lunch – and now things could go too far with a man who isn’t what he seems…
The House Next Door is the first of the three books contained in this title. However, the blurb is wrong! There are only three children, and I wonder if the person who wrote it even read the short story? That aside, it made for a good read, with a bit of an obvious twist to the story. But maybe that has to do with the podcast I am currently listening to.
The Killer’s Wife
Six girls have gone missing. Detective McGrath knows the only way to find them is to get close to the suspect’s wife… maybe too close.
I so hope that there is a continuation to this story as I have been left hanging wanting to know what happens to Andrew after he solves the murders.
The Sanderson family has been forced into hiding after one of them stumbled upon a criminal plot. Or so they think. No one will answer their questions. And the terrifying truth may come too late…
Having read the previous two short stories in less than a day, I was reluctant to put this book down. The Witnesses was the perfect keep you on the edge of your seat short story. Well contained and very well written.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Random House South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This post is in line with my blogging policy.
