Book review - The Perfect Neighbours by Rachel Sargeant

Book review of The Perfect Neighbours by Rachel Sargeant

The perfect neighbours tell the perfect lies…

A dark and twisty psychological thriller from a rising star in the genre. When Helen moves into an exciting new neighbourhood, she finds herself in a web of evil with no escape.

Behind the shutters lies a devastating secret…

When Helen moves abroad with her loving husband Gary, she can’t wait to meet her fellow expat teachers from the local International School. But her new start is about to become her worst nightmare…
As soon as the charming family across the way welcome Helen into their home, she begins to suspect that all is not as it seems. Then Gary starts to behave strangely and a child goes missing, vanished without a trace.
When violence and tragedy strike, cracks appear in the community, and Helen realises her perfect neighbours are capable of almost anything…

My review  

 This book had me gripped from the outset. I loved the idea of an expat community. Moving abroad has always been appealing to me, though hopefully I wouldn't end up with the same neighbours Helen did! The intense community was stifling from the moment Helen arrived into their community and I felt her pain at trying, but not really wanting to, fit in. Everything seems a little odd from the moment she arrives and the dream of living and working abroad cracks pretty soon when things begin to happen one after the other. Helen is strong but yet is unable to know who she can trust out of the group of neighbours. This story delightfully pulls you in and I couldn't put it down until I found out what happened. With twists and turns and truths emerging until the very last pages, this is a thriller to keep you on your toes. I really enjoyed this read and would love to read more from this author.
