It had been a while since I had sat down and read a book. So, when World Book Day came along, I decided I was long overdue a new book or two. Plus, once I'm in the mood to read, nothing can come between me and a book. These are two books that made me switch my phone off and shun all social media, so as not to be disturbed...

Every day she catches the same train, that stops at the same signal each time, which overlooks a row of back gardens. She names the couple in one particular house 'Jess and Jason' and in her mind this couple are the embodiment of happiness. But then one day she sees Jess in the arms of another man. 

It 's not long until Rachel becomes involved in the lives that she had watched from afar. This is where the story starts. From here on in, the narrative is shared between three characters, which for me, added to the intrigue. It is a story that is enthralled with mystery and will keep you guessing right up until the end...

'Gripping, enthralling - a top-notch thriller and a compulsive read'
S J WATSON, bestselling author of Before I Go To Sleep

One woman's fear is a another woman's weapon...
''When I look back on my relationship with Kathy I marvel at how naive she was, how little she knew.
But then, she always thought she had everything: the job; the baby; the friends; and him. She thought she was safe. She thought that nothing could touch her perfect world.
She should never have trusted me.'

Once I finish a book I am always quick to buy another. I had high hopes I had another captivating book in my hands with this one, but alas, I was left disappointed.

This book is about a woman hell bent on having the life she believes belongs to her. Kathy is oblivious that her co-worker has a deep, dangerous obsession. As the story unfolds the narrative alternates between Kathy and Heja - characters that I just could not warm to. Sadly, the ending also fell short for me as I was holding out for a big twist or turn of events. It was a quick read, so I quickly got over it and I'm ready to start another new story...
