Do you ever really know your neighbours?
Hannah Abbott is afraid of the world. Plagued by anxiety, she lives an isolated, uneventful life in suburban Yorkshire. She rarely leaves her house, and her only friend is Edith, her elderly neighbour. But when the Mason family moves in across the street, Hannah’s quiet life is changed forever.
They seem perfect, with their pretty teenage daughter, April, and their public displays of affection. But one day, Hannah sees April place an unsettling sign in the window, and has to make a choice.
Laura Mason is sick of pretending everything is okay. To everyone else she has a beautiful family, a good job, and a loving husband. But behind closed doors, nothing is what it seems.
A family broken by lies.
A woman traumatized by a dark past.
A child caught in the crossfire.
Who will save April?
A gripping psychological thriller by the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Silent Child.
The story alternates between Hannah, who has lived in the area a while and her new neighbour Laura. It was good to see both point of views from both women and I was actually quite torn in what to believe.
Hannah living opposite the new family, can’t help but see and hear the going on’s of her new neighbours. I mean come on, I am sure we are all a bit nosy at times, even if we don’t mean to be. April, the couples daughter, like Hannah, really intrigued me and I couldn’t wait to read more to see where the story was heading.
I don’t want to say to much about the story itself as the story heads into a direction I never envisioned. The author really had me hood winked into thinking I knew exactly what was going to happen to then turning everything upside down so I was taken by surprise.
Saving April is a tense and enthralling read that left me with goosebumps. It really is quite chilling and very unexpected. It’s one I seemed to get through in no time as the author totally had my attention. Another great read from the author.
