The Woman Next Door by Cass Green

The Woman Next Door

Two suburban women. Two dark secrets. The almost perfect murder. Everybody needs good neighbours… Melissa and Hester have lived next door to each other for years. When Melissa’s daughter was younger, Hester was almost like a grandmother to her. But recently they haven’t been so close. Hester has plans to change all that. It’s obvious to her that despite Melissa’s outwardly glamorous and successful life, she needs Hester’s help. But taking help from Hester might not be such a good idea for a woman with as many secrets as Melissa…

I really enjoyed this book. The twin narratives work well and give great insights into both of the lead characters. The story is well plotted and paced, with twists and turns a-go-go and a creeping, insidious sense of menace and madness; despite this, it’s also really funny in places!

I found Melissa and Hester both to be sympathetic figures, and I could totally envisage the cuteness of Bertie! I’ll certainly look out for more from Cass Green.

Thank you to NetGalley, HarperCollins UK, HarperFiction and Cass Green for the ARC of The Woman Next Door.
