Description

A number one best seller, perfect for fans of Her by Harriet Lane and In a Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware.

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.

Biting, Beguiling, Will make you smile AND shudder

Plenty to love about this book. Melissa, beautiful wife to a doctor with TV fame and mom to a teenage daughter with issues, has a darker past she'd really like to keep secret. Hester, in her sixties, is widowed, lonely, and wishes she could reconnect to her neighbors, who she was once so close to. What went wrong? Hester couldn't be happier when she is accidentally invited to a party at Melissa's, but then witnesses an event that brings her too close to Melissa's darkest secrets. Hester is nothing if not helpful, and Melissa had better be gracious about it, or else...
Good narration, plenty of suspense, cringeworthy characters and overall a great mystery. Recommended!

Very good story

The story starts off just ok: two neighbors, one more needy than the other. Then something happens that brings them closer than one of them wants. And then...twists as their backgrounds are revealed. Kept me hooked from beginning to end. The reader is outstanding.

Dark humor, Brit style

What made the experience of listening to The Woman Next Door the most enjoyable?

Hester's fussy, judgemental, prim ideas and how she uses them to justify her actions.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Woman Next Door?

Hester sees Melissa looking at the floor, and hopes it isn't a spider, because that might require more of a demand on her adoration than she can sustain. What follows makes that thought a hoot.

What about Anna Bentinck and Bea Holland ’s performance did you like?

Spot on delivery and character development by both readers.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Did laugh out loud in several spots. Also cringed and yelled no...no...no!!!!!

Any additional comments?

Wonderfully written, suspenseful and full of a dark humor unique to the Brits. Great, enjoyable read.

Entertaining!

I have over 550 audible books in my library and British authors are some of my favorites. The storyline is suspenseful and intriguing with good character development. However, the last 30 minutes does not live up to the rest of the novel. I don't understand why writers can't produce a satisfying ending. If you are looking for an entertaining novel with mid-level depth than this may be for you.

Exquisitely Insane

This book was absolutely phenomenal. I am always looking for mysteries, especially set in England for some reason. Perhaps from all the cozy mysteries I watched in my youth. I am so impressed with the author and her ability to bring the characters to life. They are so layered and so real. I am very interested in how her brain works and how she was able to come up with them. Once this was over, long after all of it was wrapped up, an involuntary chill ran through my body. I don't think I've ever felt like that after a book. That was simply due to how impressed I was with these characters. Thank you Cass Green! The narration is unbelievable. Especially Anna Bentinck! To my surprise, I had already listened to her on another audio book. Her voice was unrecognizable and I was convinced that was her normal voice, but apparently she changed it to fit the character... and boy did it fit the character! Perfection on her part. I absolutely loved this book. I ended up reading this due to Alex Marwood giving her thumbs-up. If you enjoy her books, you should enjoy this one as well.

Terrific!

Probably the most enjoyable psychological themed novel I've read. Crazy isn't overdone but eases the reader into how someone with a lose grip on reality justifies and rationalizes their behavior.

Whoa...

This was a tough one for me because the protagonist’s holier than thou, judgmental, superior attitude hit very close to home, as I have a female relative who I would swear is the model for the character. I found it an interesting character study from the perspective of a sociopath... living amongst us. Not great, but different and it held my interest.

A struggle to finish.

The narrator was great, but from the beginning the story was slow moving, and ultimately lacked substance.

Just OK

I struggled to finish this book honestly. It was very slow at the beginning and I found it hard to finish. When it finally ended I couldn't believe I had wasted so much time listening.

The codependent neighbor from HELL ~ Loved IT!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES ~ It was deliciously engrossing from beginning to end.

What other book might you compare The Woman Next Door to and why?

"Gone Girl"

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I loved how Cass Green included all the "nagging" and judgmental thoughts going through the minds of the characters. - Everyone has these thoughts in one way or another, and maybe that is why I found myself laughing out loud despite how mean these women's thoughts could be.

A really fun and entertaining read about murder.
