I got this book from NetGallley in exchange for an honest review. When I first read the synopsis for this book I was excited as I thought it sounded really interesting and really good. 

This book is a slow starter but it is worth sticking with it as once it gets started it is a great read, with a good plot, easy to follow, fantastic characters and amazing twists you don't see coming. I really enjoyed this book I have never read any of Louise Jensen's books before, I shall be looking into her other books as I enjoyed this one so much. 

I have chosen to give this book four out of five stars as I will definatly be recomending it especially to my book club. This book has also made its way into my favorites category on my kindle.

Even after sixteen years the past catches up with you.

Sixteen years ago Rose's little brother Billy was killed and Rose can't stop blaming herself for his death. Sixteen years later Rose is working in her local library, living in her childhood home. She thinks she knows her neighbours, she has lived next to them her whole life, visted them over and over. But how well can you really know someone?

When her neighbour's wife dies, Rose steps in to help him out, collecting his shopping, stopping by to visit him. One day when Rose pops by she finds her neighbour collapsed on the floor. After phoning for an ambulance, he gets taken to hospital, leaving with a message to Rose telling her not to go upstairs. Deciding to do somthing nice for his return Rose sets out to tidy his house for him, ignoring his warning to not go upstairs. 

Soon Rose is thrown back sixteen years as secrets arise and Rose is left wondering if she really knew her neighbour at all. Who killed BIlly sixteen years ago and can Rose finally forgive herself. 

i got this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. When I read the blurb for this book I thought it sounded really good however, i found I was about thirty chapters in and nothing had happened yet, this book was extreemly slow and I found I just got bored and gave up. 

I would not recomend this book and I shall not be rereading this book therefore I have chosen to give it a single star.
