“One little lie just became deadly…
Perfect mother. Perfect wife. Jane Goodwin has spent years building her picture-perfect life in the quiet town of Ashdon.
So when the girl next door, sixteen-year-old Clare Edwards, is found murdered, Jane knows she must first protect her family.
Every marriage has a few white lies and hers is no exception. Jane’s worked hard to cover up her dark secret from all those years ago – and she’ll do anything to keep it hidden…”
My rating: 2*
‘The Girl Next Door’ is a twisty, turny, psychological thriller, it is told from the point of view of a few different characters and is filled with domestic tension.
While it is a well written and fast, easy enough read, it was quite obvious from very early on who the murderer was. I suppose the interest for the reader lies in the question of ‘why?’
