The Mistress Next Door
An utterly gripping thriller full of shocking twists
I know what you did. You destroyed my life. Now I’m going to take everything from you, starting with your husband. I’m your worst nightmare, and I’m closer than you think.
Moving to Prospect Close has been everything I’d hoped for. In the city, Oliver and I barely saw each other, irritable at home and rushing around after the kids. But here, the neighbours have been so friendly and welcoming, and we’re now at barbeques and playdates every weekend, all together, as a family. It’s the type of life I always dreamed of. One that’s a million miles from… before. Not that Oliver would know anything about that.
But recently Oliver has been behaving strangely – staying out late, working weekends and absent even when home. I don’t want to question our idyllic life, but when I find a receipt for a hotel room, including champagne, in his coat pocket, what else can I assume other than he’s cheating?
Or could it be even worse than that…? What if the past isn’t just haunting me, it’s coming back to destroy me?
Because yesterday I received an anonymous note. One that changes everything. It seems that someone in Prospect Close knows my secret. Someone who’s willing to do whatever it takes to get their revenge, including stealing my husband. Unless I can find them first…
An astonishing, compelling page-turner with a jaw-dropping twist, if you love Lisa Jewell, K. L. Slater andJackie Kabler, you’ll love The Mistress Next Door.

I know what you did.
Harriet thought she had the perfect husband until she realizes that he is cheating on her. Now she wants to figure out with who. Not only does she have her hands full with trying to figure things out with her marriage, she has had to deal with a lot in such a short amount of time and is receiving ominous letters.
The story was a bit slow at the beginning but the hints of Harriet's past and the mystery of the affair and threats she was receiving were enough to keep me hanging on. I felt like some things were connected. It was definitely a page turner towards the end and I couldn't wait to see the big reveal.
The narrator, Lesley Sanderson gave a great performance and she truly kept me listening and engaged throughout the book. Her voice is clear and concise. Lesley's narration really brought the story and characters to life.
At times, I was wondering if Harriet was a bit naïve when it came to her husband. She gave him a lot of leeway in things when he would up and disappear for hours.
Special thanks to Netgalley and Bookouture Audio for the ALC.
Enjoyed!!!!! Deep dark secrets, lies, affairs and so much more within a small tight knit community. What more could you want from a book? I know these are all my favorite things I look for in a great read. I want to start off by saying that this one does start off slower but hang in there and you will definitely not regret it. It picked up to an ending that left me shocked and speechless. The only negative thing and the main reason I’m docking it by one heart is at the very beginning they throw a lot of names at you all at once. It took me half the book to finally remember who each person was and who they were related to. Normally this wouldn’t throw me off but at the beginning of the book the author had a big event that happened and it was hard to catch up with all the names after that. With all this being said, this is not my first rodeo with this author and it certainly will not be my last. She always writes a book that leaves you wowed and stunned by the end. This one was no different. I couldn’t believe what was happening and why it even did. I can’t wait to read more from this author and hopefully the wait isn’t too long.
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 4 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️
