Review for Those People by Louise Candlish

Hardcover, 368 pages
Expected publication: June 11th 2019 by Berkley Books

From the author of the international bestseller Our House, a new novel of twisty domestic suspense asks, "Could you hate your neighbor enough to plot to kill him?" 

Lowland Way is the suburban dream. The houses are beautiful, the neighbors get along, and the kids play together on weekends.

But when Darren and Jodie move into the house on the corner, they donʼt follow the rules. They blast music at all hours, begin an unsightly renovation, and run a used-car business from their yard. It doesn't take long for an all-out war to start brewing.

Then, early one Saturday, a horrific death shocks the street. As police search for witnesses, accusations start flying--and everyone has something to hide. 

My Thoughts…

I wasn’t sure about this book.   I didn’t know what to expect, I wasn’t sure if this was the book I wanted to read right now.   Yet, I started the book and couldn’t put it down.   I read it in a short timeframe, sneaking time to read just another chapter, another page, or another 100 pages.   

Those People wasn’t the thriller that I expected it to be.   It was a story about neighborhoods coming together and coming apart.   There was a lot of family drama.   The neighbors and families all come together in a series of twists and turns that lead to deaths, an arrest, some accusations that pulled apart friendships, and families that will never be the same.    I had guesses, I tried to follow the clues but Louise Candlish is talented at leading the reader down a curvy path that doesn’t always lead to the right place.  

Those People is a book that will make you appreciate your good neighbors and realize your not so good neighbors aren’t quite so bad.   Pick up your own copy and meet the families on Lowland Way.
