The New Neighbors


The Girl Before meets The Couple Next Door in a Hitchcockian thriller about a couple who moves into their dream neighborhood only to discover nothing is as it seems...
The perfect couple. The perfect house. The perfect crime.

Londoners Jack and Syd found their dream home: lots of space, a great location, and a friendly owner who wanted a young couple to have it.

Everything is exactly what they hoped for when they move in--except Jack makes a disturbing discovery in the attic, and Syd begins to wonder about the girl next door. And they each keep the other in the dark.

A mistake.

Because someone has just been killed outside their back door, and now the police are watching them.

This is their chance to prove they're innocent--or to get away with murder.

Whose story do you believe?




My Review

If you enjoy psychological thrillers then you will enjoy this book. Mr. Lelic does not bring the bold in your face chills but a more subtle approach. One that slowly will have you questioning everything you know or thought you knew about Jack and Syd.

The alternating voices of Jack and Syd was nice. It helped to bring me closer to them. Additionally, it kept their voices strong and prominent in the story. Plus; as the saying goes "There is two sides two each story". In this case Jack and Syd's stories.

The secondary characters were lacking. So, kudos again to Mr. Lelic for keeping the story intriguing enough that I kept reading it to the very end. Which, the ending was fine but a little weak. Overall, this is a book worth your time. "Beware your neighbors".
