Londoners Jack and Syd moved into the house a year ago. It seemed like their dream home: tons of space, the perfect location, and a friendly owner who wanted a young couple to have it.
So when they made a grisly discovery in the attic, Jack and Syd chose to ignore it. That was a mistake.
Because someone has just been murdered. Right outside their back door.
And now the police are watching them...
This is the first book I have read by this author. I really liked the sound of it, and was quite pleased when I was approved on Netgalley to read to it. So thank you to the publishers for that.
Syd and Jack have been trying to buy a house in London, and they finally seem to have found what may just be their forever home. They couldn’t believe they got it after the amount of interest there seemed to be at the open day.
But here they are finally on their moving in day. The house needs so much work doing it, and also the last owners belongings need getting rid of, but that can be done over time, they are just eager to get in there.
It doesn’t seem long before mysterious things begin to happen. Jack is hearing noised in the middle of the night, is there something going on, or is it just a case of learning then noises of a new home?
Then a body is found in an alley way behind their home, it turns out to be someone they know. We soon start to see a strain on Jack and syd and is their relationship going to suffer with things that are out of their control.
This is one of those stories, that I feel if I say to much about it, it would give to much away so I’m going to stop mentioning what was going on, and say what I though about the book.
For me it was a good and enjoyable read for the most part. I don’t know what it was but I just felt like something was missing. As I said I don’t know what. Maybe it was the way the story was told from different points of view. I’m really not sure. It was a decent read, but it didn’t have me gasping and wanting more at any stage. I have seen some great reviews for this book, and I think many will like it, as I said I did enjoy the story but it didn’t grip me. So for me it’s a 3.5*
