Summary

The Girl on the Train meets The Family Next Door in this gripping psychological suspense, perfect for fans of K. L. Slater and Claire Mackintosh.

She sees much more than you think....

Five years ago, Laurel Lovejoy had it all. The high-powered city job, the loving husband, the perfect daughter. Now, she is 40 and alone, and working for a courier service. But she has discovered that being a delivery driver comes with a superpower: it makes her invisible. People accept her presence without question. They go about their lives, unaware of just how much she sees - how much she knows.

Laurel is particularly fascinated by the residents of Paradise Found, an exclusive gated cul-de-sac. She sometimes even finds her way there when she's not working, using her days off to soak up as much information about the inhabitants and their lives as she can. Everyone needs a hobby.

Then one day, Laurel sees something in one of the houses - something that blows her whole world apart, and will have devastating consequences for everyone involved....

The Courier will keep you up all night....

Good Listen

Enjoyed this although it got frustrating at times when I couldn't understand why she wouldn't have just gone to the police when she thought she found her daughter, but it all made sense in the end

A fairly basic, derivative story

I must admit I was expecting more from this – more subtlety,, more nuanced descriptions and more twists. In the end it was quite a formulaic mystery/thriller and not particularly well written one at that. The plot was full of inaccuracies and implausible awkward encounters and
the big twist was fairly predictable. It was well read though

The Girl in the Delivery Van

Wow, that was something. There is a lot of frustrating clutter, and the first half is almost identical to The Girl on the Train. The ending is awful. There is nothing spectacular about it, but might be worth a discounted price.
