GOOD HOUSEKEEPING

'I really loved it. The Whispers is a big-hearted psychological thriller about the dark corners that lurk in even the closest of friendships. Heidi Perks reads like Liane Moriarty at her Big Little Lies best as she brilliantly mines the jealously, spite and rage that lurk behind the polite smiles at every school gates. Highly recommended' TONY PARSONS

The Whispers

I did not enjoy this book unfortunately, quite frankly I found it boring and couldn’t wait for it to end. I never give up on a book, so hoping it would improve I persevered and then with sheer determination I finally got to the end. A story with little interest, about a group of mothers who meet seemingly endlessly at the school gates. To be fair there were a couple of “exciting moments” but overall I found this a poor read.
