The Watchful Neighbour
When Jade Ferguson’s affair with a married man abruptly ends, she’s devastated.
There is no quick fix for a broken heart. A fresh start is required.
New job. New home. New neighbours.
The residents of Gresham Terrace seem pleasant enough.
Except for one…
An absolutely gripping debut psychological thriller.
Jade Fergusen is looking for nothing more than a fresh start at life after wasting the past ten years with a married man. His broken promises of leaving his wife for Jade pushed her over the edge. Her move to Gersham Terrace was the change she needed to get on with her life for the better. Only, not everything is what it seems on her street and watchful eyes know everything.
Well, I must say there are definitely an interesting group of characters in this story. Jade is quite cuckoo for cocoa puffs, nuttier than a fruitcake, and has taken a ride on the crazy train. Then you have her next door neighbor, Greg Good, who may even give Norman Bates a run for his money. Needless to say, I never warmed up to either of them. Of course Jade and Greg aren’t the only ensemble in the cast of players. We also have Dee, a forty something woman who recently moves in and Brad, a hunky neighbor with his own checkered past. Out of all the characters Jade irked me the most. She is rude, paranoid and well….kinda crazy. She is not a likeable character and I really couldn’t find any redeemable qualities in her. Okay, maybe one. She did love Puddles who by far is my favorite in the story. I mean what is not to like about a cute cuddly cat. Jade, stop letting him out of the house ya nutty! Cats belong indoors where they can’t get hurt! Grrr!
The story is pretty simple and I pretty much guessed what was going on from the beginning. Although, the fun was in watching Jade lose her sh*t throughout the entire story. I mean what do you expect dating a married man for ten years. I call it karma! I definitely did have a creepy vibe throughout the story and it kept me on my toes, especially since I am in fear of being watched late at night or someone peeking through my windows. Yes, I am the one staring out the windows in complete darkness with the light of my phone to make sure no one is in my yard. Hey, it has happened before! So Jade, I feel your pain and can sympathize slightly, cause it kinda felt good seeing someone getting the better of you.
The Watchful Neighbour is definitely an interesting read, quite creepy and will have you looking out your windows and making sure you double locked your doors! Best not to read at night if you ever want to sleep again.
