MoMo’s Book Diary highly recommends this as one of the best crime thriller books I have read this year!
Mel Sherratt’s crime thriller “The Girls Next Door” is a thrilling mystery full of suspense which I was lucky enough to read in one day (as a back-seat passenger on a six-hour journey).
I had not read any of this author’s books previously and found myself captivated by her style of writing. The characters, mostly part of the story from the beginning, are introduced lots of names and relationships to get to grips with but the author leads you through perfectly.
I especially loved feisty Detective Eden Berrisford and look forward to more of her story in future books.
Sincere thanks to author, Mel Sherratt, and publisher, Bookouture, for opportunity to read this fantastic book via Netgalley prior to its release date. I am already recommending it to everyone!
One warm spring evening, five teenagers meet in a local park. Only four will come out alive.
Six months after the stabbing of sixteen-year-old Deanna Barker, someone is coming after the teenagers of Stockleigh, as a spate of vicious assaults rocks this small community. Revenge for Deanna? Or something more?
Detective Eden Berrisford is locked into a race against time to catch the twisted individual behind the attacks – but when her own niece, Jess Mountford, goes missing, the case gets personal.
With the kidnapper threatening Jess’s life, can Eden bring back her niece to safety? Or will the people of Stockleigh be forced to mourn another daughter…?
