Everyone is going to the housewarming party.

All the same people who lived on the street the day Abi vanished…

Will her mother finally learn the truth?


Ava only left her daughter in the pushchair for five minutes. The buckle was fastened, and she was sure it was safe. But when she came downstairs, the door was open and Abi was gone – she walked down the road, past the Lovegoods’ house, and was never seen again.


A year later, the Lovegoods are planning their long-anticipated housewarming party. Ava doesn’t want to go. She can’t bear to look down that end of the road, to see the place where Abi vanished, and she doesn’t want to spend time with people who don’t share her grief. Her husband Matt persuades her: he’s worried about her. A night out might do her good.


But as her friends and neighbours chat, and the drink and gossip flows, Ava learns something new about the day she has re-lived a thousand times. A throwaway comment which could change everything.


Ava thought she knew every last detail of that day.


She’s about to find out she was wrong…


Brilliantly dark and moving suspense fiction for fans of Gillian Flynn, Claire McGowan and Lisa Jewell, The Housewarming will have your pulse racing and your heart in your mouth from start to finish.

Enjoyed!!!!!

My Review:
Wow!!!!! I was speechless by the end of this book. All I kept thinking was if one person just owned up to their mistake all the events leading up to the horrible tragedy wouldn’t have gotten as far as it did. It reminded me how selfish people can be and that you only have yourself that you can trust one hundred percent. This is not my first rodeo with this author and it definitely won’t be my last. I’ve enjoyed all her books especially this one. This one topped the cake for me. I had every emotion while reading this book. When a character cried, I cried. When a character laughed, I laughed. I really immersed myself in this book and identified with each and every character even the very unlikeable ones. You never know what you would do in that same exact situation and it’s hard to judge them based solely on their one regrettable action. I do have to say that I loved that ending. I was shocked to the core to find out what truly happened to poor Abi. I never saw it coming. I did have a feeling throughout the whole book about a specific character and to find out I was right was so satisfying. Thank you SE Lynes for writing such a great book.

In conclusion, the plot, the characters and all the twists in this book made this book an enjoyable read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
