The title sets the stage for this fast-paced book. There are only 5 houses on the cul-de-sac. The story revolves around these five homes and the families that live in them.

At the beginning of the book, we find out that around the Fourth of July there were shots fired with dire consequences. Of course, we don’t know who fired the shots and what the outcome is.

Then the story backtracks a few months as we learn a little bit about each household. Each family has its secrets, the greatest element in most books. The secrets vary from paralyzing paranoia, loss of job, abuse and more. The more pages we read, the more we find out. Each family has a possible secret that could cause someone to fire that gun.

Joy Fielding has the ability to write an interesting story that creates maximum suspense. The transition from one family’s story to the next is an easy one. And there is interaction between the families.

Cul-de-sac is a fast and entertaining read. I couldn’t wait to see who fired the gun and who it was fired at.
