The People Next Door by Tony Parsons

4 Stars from me

What should have been the perfect life for Lana and Roman soon appears to show a few cracks.

This psychological thriller definitely messed with my mind and at places in the story I was virtually screaming at Lana!

The story and the depth of character development was everything that I would expect from Tony Parsons. I got to know all of the residents of the perfect leafy close… and all of their increasingly concerning habits!

Once life begins to unravel for Lana, things between her and Roman soon become rocky and she begins to lose sight of so much about herself, their relationship and why she ever though that the quiet, private, village life was ever for her.

More than that though, just what IS going on with her neighbours and, what exactly are her husband’s plans?

The People Next Door, is gripping, disconcerting and a must for psychological thriller fans!

Blurb: Lana and Roman Wade have fled the city for a little corner of paradise, exchanging their flat with its unhappy memories for a small honey-coloured house among the rolling green hills of Oxfordshire. Their new home, set in a residential Close known as The Gardens, is their dream and their new neighbours are charming.

So why is Lana feeling so uneasy?

Lana and Roman may seem like an attractive, popular couple. But they are also a couple with a secret; a secret buried in the life they have left behind, a secret they have shared with no-one.

But their new neighbours – these charming, affluent men and women in the Gardens – have secrets of their own. Terrible secrets; unimaginable secrets that include the apparently happy family who lived – and tragically died – in Lana and Roman’s new home.

As Lana struggles to adjust to her new life in Paradise, she becomes convinced that her new neighbours are hiding something from her, something connected with the deaths of the family who lived in her house before she did, something that could put her own life in danger…
