BLOG TOUR - The Bedroom Window



They say they have no children. So who did I see at the window?

My darling little boy Albie adores playing at our new neighbours’ house. And after the terrible year we’ve had, I feel so lucky that we can start over in this perfect place, with new friends who treat Albie like the son they never had. He can’t stop talking about the tree house they’re building him, and the cookies they bake together.

But as time passes, something starts to feel wrong. Why don’t they ever open the front door more than a crack? They told me they had no children, so who does the small pink tricycle I saw in their hall belong to? And why can I hear a lullaby drifting across the garden when I’m tucking my own boy into bed?

Then, one night, 
I see a small shadowy figure in their bedroom window…

I thought I’d learned my lesson about trusting the wrong people, but now I’m forced to wonder what this perfect couple are hiding.

And if I try to save that little helpless figure in the window, 
will I do what I’ve always feared most, and put my beautiful boy’s life in danger…?

An utterly gripping psychological thriller from the number one bestselling author of The Marriage and The Girlfriend. If you like Gone Girl, The Housemaid and Lisa Jewell then you will be hooked by The Bedroom Window.

Lottie and Neil are beginning a new life about two years after Neil suffered a debilitating accident. Now back to almost full health, Neil gets a job as a head caretaker for a wealthy couple named Ted and Neeta. This means that the couple and their small son Albie have moved inter a cottage on the property where Neil will be working. Things seem bleak at the start, but there is promise, even if the couple who own the property seem to be hiding secrets. 

 One particular window in their cottage affords Lottie the opportunity to see into her neighbor’ home. In fact, she can’t stop observing. The couple that her husband is working for are said to be childless, but Lottie feels differently. She believes there’s a child in the home, and she cannot understand why they’ve never seen the child under any circumstances. 

During the course of time, Neeta becomes the child minder for Albie, but Lottie does not really trust the situation. In fact, she does not trust Neeta at all and is determined to discover their secrets and why they are hiding them. Factor in deception and some flashbacks to a couple of decades ago, and things slowly come together. Some shocking twists are revealed, leading to a thrilling conclusion. 

Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest
