The People Next Door by Keri Beevis #BookReview #ThePeopleNextDoor #PsychologicalThriller @keribeevis @Bloodhoundbook #onceuponatimebookreviews

Today I am reviewing on its publication day The People Next Door by Keri Beevis, published by Bloodhound Books.

Book Description

Her new house has a mysterious past—and her new life in the English countryside is about to take a dark turn . . .

When Ellie and Ash move into a beautiful old house in rural Norfolk, England, they believe they’ve found their perfect home. Intrigued by the people next door, Ellie befriends shy but sweet Benjamin, and as time goes by, becomes ever more curious about his elusive sister, Virginia.

But when she discovers that her new home has a darker past and that Ash has been keeping secrets, what she thought was a perfect life in the countryside begins to unravel. Is her best friend to be trusted, are the new neighbours all that they really seem, and why is her new puppy so obsessed with the cellar? Most worrying of all is the mystery of what happened to the former occupants of the house.

When Ash goes away on business and strange things begin to happen, Ellie’s paranoia goes into overdrive. But are these all coincidences—or is she really in danger?

“The perfect home…Or the perfect nightmare…?”

A compelling read, Keri Beevis has another best seller to add to her already glowing bibliography with The People Next Door. An atmospheric tale, with a twist that you won’t see coming and a climatic ending, that will not only knock your socks of and blow your mind, it will have you questioning just how far would you be willing to go to protect someone you love. Beevis also does such a great job of displaying the character’s everyday human frailties, that it will have the reader questioning what their true motives are.

I was completely addicted to this tale right from the outset and as I have mentioned in previous reviews of her work, Beevis really is the queen of the prologue and The People Next Door is another one that just validates my opinion all the more. A fantastic storyteller, she knows how to grab her readers attention and even when the subject matter is quite dark, her books are just a joy to read. If you haven’t read any of this talented authors work before, you need to do so immediately!

Thank you to Keri Beevis for gifting me an advanced copy of The People Next Door which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

Let’s Get to Know Keri Beevis

Keri Beevis is the internationally bestselling author of Dying To Tell and Deep Dark Secrets.

Her other books include the Rebecca Angell Series: M for Murder and D for Dead, and most recently; Trust No One (released November 2020).

She wrote her first novel at age twenty, but it was a further twenty years before she was published after winning a contract in the New Novels Competition 2012.

Born in the village of Old Catton, less than a mile from where Anna Sewell was living when she wrote Black Beauty, Keri had a passion for reading and writing from a young age, though her tastes veered more to the macabre.

Today she still lives in Norfolk, along with her two naughty kitties, Ellie and Lola, and a plentiful supply of red wine (her writing fuel), where she writes a comedic lifestyle column for the Iceni Magazine. She loves Hitchcock movies, exploring creepy places, and gets extremely competitive in local pub quizzes. She is also a self-confessed klutz.
