Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for giving me the chance to review The Neighbour by Gemma Rogers
For myself and Lauren, my 10-year-old daughter No3 Beech Close was to be our refuge after two years of hell nursing my sick mother.
In need of a fresh start and wanting to distance ourselves from the bad memories of my mother’s house we moved to Beech Close, a small cul-de-sac of six houses situated around a picture-perfect green.
It seemed perfect but I had underestimated the secrets that this tightknit community shared.Within hours of moving in my next-door neighbour Valerie made it abundantly clear we were not welcome.
I soon discovered that Valerie hadn’t welcomed the previous occupant either and she’d since disappeared without a trace.
Had I put myself and my daughter in danger moving to Beech Close?
Which neighbours, if any could I trust?
And how far would they go to keep their secret
Well what can I say, Gemma Rogers has absolutely smashed it again with her latest release.
The Neighbour was a gripping read from the start, there were plenty of unexpected twist and fear gripping moments.
I loved the relationship between Shelley and her daughter Lauren, I liked how it showed that generation trauma can end.
The Neighbour was an excellent read that I would highly recommend.
