A house with a secret. A woman with nothing to lose.When Maggie sees the beautiful Venetian blinds moving in the Caldwells’ front window, she freezes. Her favorite neighbours Cady and Josh are away, so who is in their house?The pretty young woman who answers the door tells a convincing story. She’s Sarah. The house-sitter. Just here for a month. An old friend of Cady’s who needed a place to stay. She’s pleasant and warm, and Maggie wanders back to her house thinking she might have made a new friend. Yet she can’t help but wonder why Cady never mentioned Sarah.What Maggie doesn’t know is that on the other side of the door, Sarah is starting to panic. No one was meant to see her at 214 Palmer Street…
Nosy neighbours… I guess everybody knows them, probably has them too. I, for one, confess I sometimes (or often as my son would claim) am part of that group too. But it does not have to be a bad thing, does it? It also mean people look out for you and when they hear or something that is not quite right, they want to investigate, to help.
When you are up to something you really should not be doing, you wish they would mind their own business. What you are planning to do, are determined to do is a must. You want to unravel the mystery in order to see for yourself whether the person you love and trust with all your heart is who they claim to be. Are they really innocent or are they hiding something big?
Time to find out, but you did not realise it would come to this…
Maybe you should have let sleeping dogs lie…
It was a good story and I enjoyed the book although I thought some things were a bit predictable. 4 stars
