A beautiful house. A new beginning. The almost perfect neighbours…

When newlyweds Jane and Alex Clarke move into an idyllic house on the quaint Bristol Lane, they are excited for a new beginning in what will be their ‘forever home’.

And when an elderly neighbour welcomes them, she soon becomes a friend. But she grows a little too interested in the couple next door as she sits watching them, day in, day out, from the rocking chair in her window.

Alex says it will be fine. After all, she’s a lonely widow who just wants some company. But when she invites Jane into her home, who knows what she’ll find there…

A dark and gripping domestic thriller, perfect for fans of Shari Lapena and Paula Hawkins.

Window Shopping In a House of Horrors

Frustratingly one dimensional with little entertainment value. For the first 3/4 of the book, I felt like I was looking in the windows of boutiques with stuff I wanted to get a better look at, but the stores were all locked. I wanted to get inside that other house, hear from her, get a different perspective. I just can’t get into books that all take place in one room, in one person’s head. It got really old hearing an old person drone on about being old 👵 😅. I’m no spring chicken, but my gosh, this was just depressing. Sorry- wish I could say more good things about this, but I do enjoy Katherine Fenton. If anyone could’ve made this better, which they couldn’t, it would have been her.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
