Is Your House As Safe As You Think?
Natalie spent most of her childhood feeling afraid. So when she moved into her cosy little flat in St Ives and met her three friendly neighbours, she knew at once it was somewhere she’d feel safe.
Before long, Natalie’s neighbours have become the family she never had.Kind, motherly Morwenna, serious, reliable Nigel, and sweet, anxious Daniel. They collect each other’s mail, water each other’s plants, and share each others lives.
But as Natalie knows all too well, the people who are closest to you can also be the most dangerous. And this house is not as safe as she thinks…
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this creepy, slow burning story. Simpson takes her time telling this twisty tale and setting the scene, for me this really built up the suspense and swept me along as I quickly turned the (virtual) pages.
I found the whole premise spine chilling; not feeling safe in my own home would fill me with utter dread and sheer panic. Simpson cleverly wheedles into the dark crevices of your mind as you read more and more about the lives of Natalie’s new neighbours. Misgivings and doubt are everywhere.
Whilst its been a couple of months since I read this, I can still distinctly remember the feeling of palpable dread as I finished this in the early hours of the morning and lying awake unable to sleep for a long while thereafter.
Sarah Simpson is a new author (for me) and this is my type of thriller; sharp, intelligent, and oozing suspense.
