Publisher's Summary

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.

I have over 550 audible books in my library and British authors are some of my favorites. The storyline is suspenseful and intriguing with good character development. However, the last 30 minutes does not live up to the rest of the novel. I don't understand why writers can't produce a satisfying ending. If you are looking for an entertaining novel with mid-level depth than this may be for you.

Probably the most enjoyable psychological themed novel I've read. Crazy isn't overdone but eases the reader into how someone with a lose grip on reality justifies and rationalizes their behavior.
