The Downstairs Neighbor

We rated this book:


Emma is The Downstairs Neighbor to the seemingly perfect family of Steph, Paul and their teenage daughter Freya. Freya goes missing and the police begin to question everyone in the building. Emma, Steph, Paul and the other tenants have their secrets. The question is which secret is the one related to Freya’s disappearance. How far would you go to protect those you love? How many secrets and lies would you tell? What would you do when it all begins to come crashing down around you?

I thoroughly enjoyed this fictional debut by Helen Cooper. I would have loved to describe it better, but I don’t want to give anything away. I loved the multiple points of view. It allowed you more insight into each of the characters and what their secret was, as well as why they thought it was best that they keep it. While this is a mystery, I would describe it as more of a drama. It powerfully displays how we often think secrets are the best way to protect those we love, but they often cause more damage than good. I highly recommend you read this story for yourself.
