Summary

The letter is addressed to me. No stamp, swirly handwriting in black ink. I pull out a piece of paper, stiffening when I read the message. Hands trembling, the note slides to the floor: Your husband is having an affair. 

Six words written in neat block letters. Six words slipped through her letterbox, destroying her marriage, exposing Ella’s perfect life as perfect lies. 

But Ella has a plan: Alice is the answer to her problems. A lodger to help keep her afloat, a friend to keep the loneliness at bay. 

Only Alice has her own reasons for wanting to live at 46 Heath Street....

Not the crime thriller I was expecting.

I enjoyed this book but if you are looking for a gripping crime thriller this isn't it. Glad I bought it in the sale and didn't use a credit to buy it.

Enjoyable

Good to listen to. Good plot , narrated well and a little twist. One of those "Oh yes, why didn't I see that coming " ?

Pathetic Needy Main Character

This book was simply awful. The main character was so gullible and over the top needy. The other characters were unlikable and didn’t build up enough of a story. This was at best a mystery but not really, anyone with half a brain can see how this book will end.

I do not recommend this if you love thrillers and good mysteries.

Old diary + family secrets collide with the present

This book has a lot more depth and dimension than the summary indicates. It’s more on the side of “The Letter” or any of those books that are guided by flashbacks and old letters, diaries or journals. With that said, it was entertaining, I wasn’t blown away by the character development and it is not as polished as most similar books out there — but I was pleasantly surprised as the plot revealed to be more than just a married couple with fidelity issues.
