Back of the book :
Welcome to Willow Close, where everyone is a suspect . . .
On the day Nina and Conrad Best move into their new home in picture-perfect Willow Close, a body is discovered.
Hurrying inside with their belongings, they see horrified neighbours gather around the police cordon – one of the residents has been attacked and brutally killed in the woods.
When police start to interview the residents of the Close, they soon discover each neighbour harbours their own secrets. Because everyone on the Close is far from what they seem.
Nina and Conrad thought they’d found their dream home.
But have they moved into a nightmare . . . ?
What I think :
Nina and Conrad move into their dream home on Willow close, but almost immediately a young girl is found dead in the bushes almost next to their house. It seems that poor Chloe, who is only thirteen has been murdered.
Then the police turn up and start interviewing the neighbours, secrets and lies seem to start to spill out and the police don’t know what is the truth and what isn’t.
What sort of street have they moved into ?
Will the police ever find out what happened to poor little Chloe ?
I really love Lesley’s books and have read every single one of them of them quite possibly a couple of times.
I love her characters and the hard hitting storylines that Lesley writes about so well, however I felt that this book wasn’t quite the same as her usual style of writing. I don’t know if she’s trying something different or this is going to be a permanent change.
Whilst for the most part I enjoyed the story, I felt that there was so many different characters and it was really easy to get a bit confused although I did think that this book was an easy read and I look forward to her next book.
I give this book 8/10 (5 stars)
