I found this book while searching for thrillers. The dillma ,Behind closed doors are other books she wrote. This is also a murder mystery. Since the language is simple anyone can read it.
The book starts by showing Alice who translets books for a living. She has a past that haunts her. She falls in love with Leo and is happy and finds that life becomes normal for her. They move to London and it seems that things are normal.
Unfortunately, the neighbours are not friendly and do not open up to them. Secrets it seems are hidden from them. She finds that the secret is in her house. The secrets are shown layer by layer.
There are 12 houses in the neighborhooood Alice wants to invite the neighbours but leo is not keen on it.
Nina a therapist who had lived in that house has a secret. But people are trying to bury it. Alice is obsessed with her. I wonder why ? Leo had told her that she was murdered.
The Characters :
Alice is the main character . She is a normal person. The other characters in the neighbourhood are exciting. There is a lot of drama due to this.
The writing is slow but the mystery is told in each chapter. The plot has twists which is good.
The pace of the book is good at the end. I consider it a psychological thriller. But i would have like more of the romance.
