A number one best seller, perfect for fans of Her by Harriet Lane and In a Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware.
Two suburban women. Two dark secrets. The almost perfect murder.
Everybody needs good neighbours....
Melissa and Hester have lived next door to each other for years. When Melissa's daughter was younger, Hester was almost like a grandmother to her. But recently they haven't been so close.
Hester has plans to change all that. It's obvious to her that despite Melissa's outwardly glamorous and successful life, she needs Hester's help.
But taking help from Hester might not be such a good idea for a woman with as many secrets as Melissa.

Biting, Beguiling, Will make you smile AND shudder
Dark humor, Brit style
Hester's fussy, judgemental, prim ideas and how she uses them to justify her actions.
Hester sees Melissa looking at the floor, and hopes it isn't a spider, because that might require more of a demand on her adoration than she can sustain. What follows makes that thought a hoot.
Spot on delivery and character development by both readers.
Did laugh out loud in several spots. Also cringed and yelled no...no...no!!!!!
Wonderfully written, suspenseful and full of a dark humor unique to the Brits. Great, enjoyable read.
