The Family Next Door

The Family Next Door


The Family Next Door by Sally Hepworth

5 Big, brilliant, beautiful stars!🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟


A gripping domestic page-turner full of shocking reveals, perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty, Amanda Prowse and Kerry Fisher.

The small suburb of Pleasant Court lives up to its name. It’s the kind of place where everyone knows their neighbours, and children play in the street.

Isabelle Heatherington doesn’t fit into this picture of family paradise. Husbandless and childless, she soon catches the attention of three Pleasant Court mothers.

But Ange, Fran and Essie have their own secrets to hide. Like the reason behind Ange’s compulsion to control every aspect of her life. Or why Fran won’t let her sweet, gentle husband near her new baby. Or why, three years ago, Essie took her daughter to the park – and returned home without her.

As their obsession with their new neighbour grows, the secrets of these three women begin to spread – and they’ll soon find out that when you look at something too closely, you see things you never wanted to see.


Sally Hepworth, sure can write a book! The question is why have I not read anything from this author before? This book checked off all my musts for a fabulous book…. wonderful characters… fabulous relationships… perfect pacing… some fun twists and turns….

This book focused on the relationship between five very well developed and relatable females… their relationships with their significant others… their relationships with their children… their relationships with one another… I always love reading about positive female friendships…. these ladies had a few bumps along the way, but they really were truly there for one another….

The book grab me from the very beginning and never let go….. it started with Essie struggling with postpartum depression and leaving her newborn at the park…. and then just took you on a crazy twisty ride…. I really was certain we were headed in a particular direction, and then we took a big turn into something I did not see coming…. well done Miss Hepworth….

Strongly recommend! for fans of books with well develop characters…. entertaining Dramma filled plotlines… brilliant relationship Dynamics… and just plain old fun!

PS: pack some tissue for this crazy ride, you might need it!

  1. Hi! Reading the blurb I wasn’t so interested in this one, it’s not my cup of tea, to be honest, but reading your review made me curious! I don’t think I would buy it, but if I found it in the library I will give it a try! 🙂
