Summary

A brilliantly creepy and utterly mesmerising novel about the neighbours from hell, from the author of the best-selling Lie with Me

One woman's secret is her neighbour's opportunity.

Ailsa Tilson moves with her husband and children to Trinity Fields in search of the new. 

New project - a house to renovate. New people - no links to the past. New friends - especially her next-door neighbour, the lonely Verity, who needs her help. 

Verity has lived in Trinity Fields all her life. She's always resisted change. Her home and belongings are a shield, a defence to keep the outside world at bay. But something about the Tilsons piques her interest. 

Just as her ivy creeps through the shared garden fence, so Verity will work her way into the Tilson family. 

And once they realise how formidable she can be, it might well be too late.

"Deliciously sly yet also profoundly moving - a twisty game of cat and mouse that keeps the reader guessing at every step." (JP Delaney)

"'Pitch-perfect. I absolutely loved it." (Lucy Dawson)

Waste of time and Credit

Definitely not "a brilliantly creepy utterly mesmerising novel" as described. I found this very hard to listen to because it was so boring., nothing was really happening, but I carried on as I didn't have another book to listen to and there was hope that it might improve. It didnt. The story was just random and hit and miss, it didnt flow. towards the end few chapters it was just noisey nonsense droning on in my ears. description of the book sounded promising, totally misleading. should have been more like this: Aisla a posh lady moves into a house with her arrogant idiot of a husband and her kids. Verity (a loner) lives next door. They sort of become friends, the husband becomes more annoying and arrogant, he moans because there are smells coming from Verity's house! Aisla then pops round to see Verity and is shocked to find the house rammed with junk, Verity is a complete serious hoarder and a bit of a tramp, Aisla offers to help her clear it, blah, blah, boring, nothing, more arrogant husband, my ears died.

Hard going

I bought this book mainly because I have always enjoyed narration by Juliet Stevenson but it was slow and boring. I tried to stay with it but finally gave up on chapter 15 !

Excellent

Beautifully narrated. A psychological thriller in the true sense of the description. It starts slowly and the whole story has a languid feel to it as we delve into the protagonist ‘s life and past. Her involvement with the family who move in next door is expertly written and the characters are well rounded and believable. Loved it.
