Publisher's Summary

Forty-year-old nurse Terry Painter enjoys a solitary existence. Her tranquil life takes a turn, however, when young, vibrant Alison Simms rents the cottage behind her, bringing friendship and excitement.

But after the initial euphoric wave, Terry soon finds that the friendship that once brightened her days now has her fearing for her life! Can she reclaim her life before Alison's past catches up to them?

Critic Reviews

"An ending worthy of Hitchcock....The brutal denouement will shake readers lulled by the tale's cozy trappings, but those familiar with Patricia Highsmith's particular brand of sinister storytelling will recognize the mayhem Fielding so cunningly unleashes." ( Publishers Weekly)
"The author keeps the tension high and the pages turning, creating a chillingly paranoid atmosphere." ( Booklist)

"Okay" Fielding ...

I'd rate this book as just "Okay." Much, much longer than needed to tell this story. Have patience!

Horrid

It started off great, got verrry boring for most of it, then became the worst book I've ever read in my life and I've read doozies. After this, I honestly won't ever read another Joy Fielding book ever again. They keep getting worse and this one is so horrible it defies explanation. Fielding appears to have forgotten that people want to ENJOY books, not have really horrid and terrible experiences reading them. I wish I could get my money and time back. This book was just horrid.

This mystery kept me spellbound from beginning to end. Very compelling. You just don't know what will happen next.
