STAR RATINGS GUIDE

Refreshingly Different

THE BIRDICT

🧡 This was not your average “gotcha” thriller. In fact, I guessed a lot of the plot somewhere around the 60% mark. But I don’t care. The characters were interesting, the premise intriguing and I wanted to see it through. I’d much rather it that way round than a completely unrealistic plot for the sake of a forced surprise.

💚 Read this for the love-to-hate characters, for the tense dynamics and the hope of comeuppance for those who deserve it.

Big thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture Audio for providing me with an ALC in return for an honest review.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Thoroughly enjoyable, natural performance by Stacey Glemboski. She had her work cut out for her with so many similar female characters to voice, but she differentiated them well.

🎧 You need to have your wits about you when listening to this. There are lots of characters to keep track of and several narrative voices. Other than that, it flows well and I happily had it on throughout the course of my day.

I didn’t like the ending, I wanted Kirk to live. It just felt like he and Sarah had a lot of things unsaid. I did enjoy Sarah and Phil’s friendship. I was dreading the moment when he turned out to be embroiled in something sinister and was oh so grateful when it never materialised.

THE BLURB

A house with a secret. A woman with nothing to lose.

When Maggie sees the beautiful Venetian blinds moving in the Caldwells’ front window, she freezes. Her favorite neighbours Cady and Josh are away, so who is in their house?

The pretty young woman who answers the door tells a convincing story. She’s Sarah. The house-sitter. Just here for a month. An old friend of Cady’s who needed a place to stay. She’s pleasant and warm, and Maggie wanders back to her house thinking she might have made a new friend. Yet she can’t help but wonder why Cady never mentioned Sarah.

What Maggie doesn’t know is that on the other side of the door, Sarah is starting to panic. No one was meant to see her at 214 Palmer Street…
