Today I have a review of Those People by Louise Candlish, publishing via Berkley on June 11, 2019! It’s my first book from Candlish, and I loved it!
Lowland Way is an idyllic place where everyone wants to live. Gorgeous homes, wonderful, welcoming neighbors, and children who can play together.
Darren and Jodie are the new neighbors, and they aren’t being neighborly. Their music is always blaring, they immediately start renovations and all that comes along with that, and they have a used car lot in their yard- no joke! Honestly, I would have a hard time if they were my neighbors! 😂
As a result, a war breaks out among the neighbors.
Then a death happens in the neighborhood, and everyone stars pointing fingers.
Those People is my first read from Louise Candlish. She has a unique style, and I absolutely loved it. It felt fresh and original. I could feel sinister vibes from the start. I loved the mystery involved, and I thought the pacing was strong. There were also plenty of surprises. To me, Candlish writes in the more British thriller style, which tends to be more mystery and slow burn, but oh-so-tantalizing, which this absolutely was!
Overall, Those People is an original, captivating read, and I’ll definitely be back for more from this author.
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.
About the Book:
From the author of the international bestseller Our House, a new novel of twisty domestic suspense asks, “Could you hate your neighbor enough to plot to kill him?”
Lowland Way is the suburban dream. The houses are beautiful, the neighbors get along, and the kids play together on weekends.
But when Darren and Jodie move into the house on the corner, they donʼt follow the rules. They blast music at all hours, begin an unsightly renovation, and run a used-car business from their yard. It doesn’t take long for an all-out war to start brewing.
Then, early one Saturday, a horrific death shocks the street. As police search for witnesses, accusations start flying–and everyone has something to hide.
