Welcome to the neighborhood. Watch your husband, watch your friends, and watch your back.
Cat Winthorpe has worked hard to get what she has: a gorgeous home; social standing; and William, her successful, handsome husband. Then a friendly new couple moves into the estate next door. While cautious, a good neighbor like Cat greets them with open arms and warm hospitality.
Neena Ryder isn’t a fellow lady of leisure. A life coach with off-the-rack dresses, personal issues, and a husband who hasn’t delivered, she’s anxious to move up in the world. This beautiful new town is a step in the right direction. It’s also making Neena aware of what she doesn’t have. Namely, William. When Neena’s infatuation escalates into obsession, it’s just a matter of eliminating a few obstacles to get the life she wants. The life next door.
As Neena’s secret fixation grows, so does her friendship with Cat. But beneath their cordial interactions is a wealth of temptations, secrets, and toxic jealousy. For both women, the desire for a perfect life can turn perfectly dangerous.

I got this early copy from the publisher but I only finished reading this book now. So thank you Netgalley and the publisher for the book!
Cat and William Winthrop seemed to be having perfect married life when another couple, Matt and Neena Ryder moved into the house opposite of their house. And Neena is going to work for William’s company. While Cat is suspicious about Neena’s past, Neena has plans to seduce Cat’s husband, William.
The book is filled with drama and became intense towards the end. Though initially, it was a bit boring at first, it started to reach it’s climax by the middle of the book and towards the end. The writing was really good that the author did a good job keeping the reader into the story. The story is a bit realistic as well. The characters however are all detestable and unlikable–I am not sure if the author did it intentionally but none of the characters to me was likable. The ending was a bit sad. And it was actually a twisty suspense, something that I enjoyed reading.
Overall, I give this book as four stars! Quiet enjoyable and unputdownable that will keep you up all night!
