The Life She Wants – Publishing Date 29.11.21

This is just a short post today to say congratulations to Mel Sherratt & Bookouture on the release of ‘The Life She Wants’. I was lucky to be able to read an E-ARC copy received through NetGalley from the publisher. This is another great book from Mel Sherratt.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

From behind the curtains, Sarah spotted the man coming out of the house, followed by the woman. It would be strange seeing people in the property. She wondered how much it would change their lives. For now, she would bide her time and hopefully get to know them better. She needed to gain their trust.

When I met Richard, I fell for him instantly. He was able to give me everything I had always wanted, the dream house, security and above all, love like Iโ€™d never known. We lived a quiet life in the middle of nowhere; we didnโ€™t need anyone else.

So, when the empty house next door is sold, I am wary. Will our neighbours invade the perfect life Richard has built for us? As soon as I meet Juliette and Danny, I am reassured. Overwhelmed by grief after the death of their young daughter, they have moved in search of a quiet life and a chance to start again. Over dinner one evening, we hit it off instantly and I know they are just the neighbours we need.

All is well until Juliette spots a young girl in our garden. Richard convinces her that she is seeing things, that itโ€™s the grief taking over. But Juliette wonโ€™t let it go. She is sure she saw a child. She believes that Richard is threatening her. She starts to think that Iโ€™m not safe.

I need to convince Juliette that sheโ€™s imagining it. I need to keep Richard happy. If I am to protect everything I have built for myself, she must never find out the truth.

That my perfect life is built on the deadliest lie.

A heart-stopping psychological thriller with a truly brilliant twist, perfect for fans of Lisa Jewell, T.M. Logan and K.L. Slater.

Goodreads Rating: 4.14
