‘I loved this book!!!... So gripping that I read it in one sitting. I just couldn't put it down.’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars
The letter is addressed to me. No stamp, swirly handwriting in black ink. I pull out a piece of paper, stiffening when I read the message. Hands trembling, the note slides to the floor: Your husband is having an affair.
Six words written in neat block letters. Six words slipped through her letterbox, destroying her marriage, exposing Ella’s perfect life as perfect lies.
But Ella has a plan: Alice is the answer to her problems. A lodger, to help keep her afloat, a friend, to keep the loneliness at bay.
Only Alice has her own reasons for wanting to live at 46 Heath Street…
If you loved The Wife Between Us, The Girl on The Train and The Secret Mother, you will be totally hooked by this twisty and gripping read about family secrets, marriage betrayal and the dark side of love.

Ella and Chris have been happily married when all of a sudden Chris wants a divorce. Ella is crushed but her yoga pal, Alice, comes to her rescue and moves in with her to help with expenses. Alice is a great friend, but is she really??? Strange things start to happen which will keep you guessing until the very end. This book grabbed me from the first few pages. It is a captivating page turner with lots of twist and turns with an ending I did not see coming. Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC of this very addictive read in exchange for an honest review.
A story of women who resided at 46 Heath Street over the years with a few twists that were predictable. I appreciate NetGalley and the publisher for the advance copy of this psychological thriller/mystery.
Very clever mystery/thriller that had me hooked from the fist page! Ella is living the life she so hoped for as a child. She has a wonderful husband, lives in the beautiful family home at 46 Heath Street. One day a letter is sent through the mail that upends all she holds dear. Her husband is having an affair with an unknown woman and a new friend arrives to help out. Is anything what it seems? Who are these "new" people in their lives and what will become of 46 Heath Street? The house holds all the secrets...and answers.
Oh my, it took me three days to slog thru this bore-fest. It is a short book at 262 pages, and I read quite fast, but I was looking for anything to do other than read this book...even the dishes. It's another book that failed to live up to the hype of 'a twisty and absolutely gripping psychological thriller'. (Which it says right on the cover) I gave it two stars because I did enjoy Nancy's diary entries and oh how I wish the whole book was based on that. The writing is not terrible, and the general idea is good, but the execution was a big fail. The characters are not well developed and I felt nothing for them. I would describe the women in this book as meek and weak and I wanted to kick start them with a punch to the throat. We've all read this type of book and there are no surprises here. It's your typical psychological thriller, where the main character is docile and you scoff at the unrealistic situations that keep occurring. I found all of the characters one-dimensional. This one just didn't do it for me. Way too repetitive and the ceaseless, constant whining of the protagonist just got on my last nerve. A disappointing read.
