I should never have become friends with the couple upstairs…
The first time I step inside this cosy apartment with its sash windows, just minutes from the sea, I think it would be the perfect place for me and my partner Zac to start again. A chance to leave our troubled past behind.
Chris and Vanessa, the couple upstairs, are so welcoming: smiles, flowers, a home-baked cake. It’s strange how he does all the talking, and she seems so shy, but I’m just thrilled to have new friends nearby.
But everything starts to go wrong… my business begins to crumble, I can’t ignore the whispers at our housewarming party and loud arguments from upstairs keep me awake at night. I can’t sleep, I can’t think straight and I feel like someone is watching me in my own home.
And then Zac comes home one afternoon, his face clenched with fury, and says he knows what’s going on. He knows about my secret…
He won’t listen to me. He storms out and I’m left in tears, completely devastated.
Why has my life fallen apart since we moved here? Am I going mad? Or is someone trying to destroy us?
If only I’d known what I know now.
If only I hadn’t trusted the couple upstairs.

Another cracker of a read by the fabulous Shalini Boland. I have read almost every single book by this author and she sure does not disappoint. I have loved every book I read by her and all of them have kept me guessing the whole time. I can’t wait to read her next book.
I want to start off by saying how great this author is. Her books keep you in suspense and you never know what twist is at the next corner. I never thought I would fall in love with an author as much as I have with her. I can’t wait to read her books and I will not stop until I’m done with the book. My whole world ends when I read one of her books. Now on to the actual book. I really liked this one. It was definitely one of my favorites by her. The whole book was based on revenge and who doesn’t love a story about that. I know there are a few people that I would love to get back at. This book was very relatable and that’s one of the reasons I loved it so much. I also loved that twist of an ending. I couldn’t believe who was the mastermind behind everything. Never would have guessed it and why. The why is always the most important for me. The ending wrapped up nicely and there were no loose ends which I loved. I can’t wait to read more by Shalini Boland.
Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
