The perfect neighbors tell the perfect lies…

A top 10 Amazon Kindle bestseller. A dark and twisty psychological thriller from a rising star in the genre, perfect for fans of THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR. When Helen moves into an exciting new neighborhood, she finds herself in a web of evil with no escape.

Behind the shutters lies a devastating secret…

When Helen moves abroad with her loving husband Gary, she can’t wait to meet her fellow expat teachers from the local International School. But her new start is about to become her worst nightmare…

As soon as the charming family across the way welcome Helen into their home, she begins to suspect that all is not as it seems. Then Gary starts to behave strangely and a child goes missing, vanished without a trace.

When violence and tragedy strike, cracks appear in the community, and Helen realises her perfect neighbors are capable of almost anything…

An excellent read with fascinating characters. Just when you think you have it all figured out, everything changes. One of the best mysteries I've read in a long time.

I cannot decide if my two stars has to do more with where the story took place or if the book was not intriguing enough to hold my interest (or both). The story is slow, but then suddenly jumps to some vague point in the future where the reader can easily figure out where we are, but it is odd indeed. Helen is a wonderful woman, a bit naive and dim, but likeable. The mystery is who is this woman being written on the side, and the reader does not find out until the last 1/4 of the book. I got through it, but I wouldn't recommend it as a keep me rooted in the nook reading it.

Helen, leaves her life in England to start a new beginning in Germany with her husband, who is a teacher. Helen tries to make friends and fit in with the other people who live on her street. Her neighbours have lots of secrets and they will do anything to keep those secrets hidden. Helen soon finds out that her perfect neighbours can't be trusted at all. Good read with lots of twists and turns and lots of characters.
