Publisher's Summary

When Joe and Christy Davenport step behind the Oxford-blue-painted door of their 'forever' home, they believe their dreams have come true. Yet the boxes aren't even unpacked before a series of events leads Christy to become obsessed with the previous occupant, the glamorous, enigmatic Amber Fraser, whose departure from Lime Park Road is shrouded in mystery.

What happened to her? And why are Joe and Christy's attempts at friendship with neighbours met with an unnerving silence?

Kept me guessing.

Great story, kept me guessing right to the end. Feel like I have some unanswered questions though.

Loved this brilliant book

I really enjoyed everything about this book what a great author. The characters were so well defined and the narration excellent. There were no real twists or dark threads just a story about relationships and obsession. I would recommend this as a great holiday listen. I am enjoying all of this authors books.

Characters that I struggled to understand

Christie really annoyed me. I still don't really understand why she cared quite so much. Slightly anti climactic and too many characters. It was enjoyable though to an extent and it kept me interested.

Great story

Read this following on being captivated by House by the same author . The writing was as good but the story did not live up to my expectations. A bit predictable although some twists and turns.
