About the book 

A loyal wife. A handsome husband. Which one of them will kill to keep their secret?

When I first met Malcolm, I knew that he was everything I had ever wanted. When we had our beautiful, blue-eyed son Finn I felt like my life was finally complete. The past eight years have been the happiest of my life. Until now.

Because Malcolm’s been lying to me.

I’ve been following him. I finally saw him with her. How could he betray me and my darling boy? Of course, we all have our secrets. But everything I’ve done, I did for my son.

So I have a plan. When the police knock on our door tomorrow morning, Malcolm will have no clue what’s in store. All I need to do is pick up Finn and we can start our new life together.

But I don’t notice the car tailing me. The sudden crushing impact takes my breath away. As my heart pounds and my car is forced towards the rushing river below, my only thought is for my precious Finn. Because I know with certainty that if this is happening to me, then he’s in grave danger too…

Did Malcolm know what I was planning after all? Is this his revenge? Or worse, have my own secrets and lies finally caught up with me—and has my time finally run out?

The Woman at Number 6 is a totally twisty and gripping psychological thriller that will have you wondering who to trust and turning the pages well into the night! Fans of Gone Girl, The Couple Next Door and T.M. Logan will be totally hooked.

My Review

Wow this was twisty.  We knew this was a domestic issue from the prologue.  I always like when we start with an informative chapter/prologue but don’t know the specifics.  Every time I thought I had things figured out, there was another twist.    After the setup, this was a fast based book with multiple crimes.  This falls into what I consider a new thriller subgenre of the popcorn thriller.  I mean no disrespect by this, but it moves along at a quick pace and continues to pick up speed, has twists and turns that you won’t see coming, keeps you on your toes and ends with a bang.  And the most important thing I think of the genre is you can see it playing out in your head like a movie.  There are fairly short chapters that keep you engaged.

Everyone has a secret or two that leads to them being a potential suspect.  Not knowing who was reliable kept me wanting more.  I’m always a little worried about spilling too much and spoiling the book, so you’ll just have to trust me that could play out as a movie or crime show.  A little bit of a mesh up of tropes kept me wanting to know what really happened.
