It’s a beautiful place to live. Or die.
June is very happy in her home. It’s where she raised her two kids – now college age – and every room is filled with memories, some beautiful, some painful. She loves the garden she has worked so hard to create. She likes her neighbours in this pleasant, leafy suburb.
But lately, something has changed.
There’s the new guy across the street. He seems rough, possibly criminal. And he’s been taking a definite interest in June’s rebellious daughter, Cathy.
And there’s June’s son, Sam. He’s always been open and friendly but recently he’s been sullen and secretive.
Even more disturbing, June’s cheating ex-husband suddenly seems to be everywhere. It’s almost as if he’s stalking her.
Then, when someone she knows is murdered, June begins to understand that all these different things are connected. And as she investigates further, she realises that she herself is in terrible danger.
Because someone out there wants June gone. Permanently.
The Perfect Home by Kevin Lynch highlights a fear that I think many of us have. Not feeling safe in our own home. The people you should be able to trust may not be worthy of that trust. It’s quite terrifying to think about.
This is a psychological thriller that had me questioning every moment and every character. It had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end.
This is a fast-paced, easy read with twists around every corner. The characters are intriguing and the plot is compelling. Overall, a great read.
