The Woman Next Door by Sue Watson

I’m delighted to be part of the books on tour for this fabulous book today. Thanks to Bookoutoure for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the tour.


‘Have you ever had a secret that you couldn’t tell a soul, even the people you love? I have.’
Lucy has a kind and adoring husband, a job she loves as a teacher, and a house on Mulberry Avenue with floaty curtains and the softest bed linen. After her troubled childhood, she knows life will never be perfect, but it’s pretty close.
She’s also got Amber, right next door. They never run out of things to talk about. Even if Amber’s life – with her high-profile job and handsome, wealthy boyfriend – is more glamorous than Lucy’s.
But then Amber starts to hint that her life isn’t all it seems, and when she comes to Lucy, terrified, saying that she’s getting threatening messages, Lucy promises to protect her.
The closer Lucy gets to anyone, the harder it is to keep her past to herself. But Amber’s boyfriend has left her just when she needs him most, and she doesn’t have anyone else.
Lucy knows all too well that people aren’t always what they seem. Sometimes they have secrets. And they’d do anything to keep them. Lucy’s still sure: she can trust her friend… can’t she?

Gripping and unputdownable, The Woman Next Door tells a story about the dark side of friendship, and has a final twist that will shock every reader. Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, Friend Request, and Clare Mackintosh.


This book is simply unputdownable! There’s so many twists and turns, and the tension is palpable.

I didn’t trust Amber right from the start, but as the book progresses, I began to mistrust everyone! I genuinely did not see the ending coming.

Lucy is a likeable character, but I did wonder initially if she was a little gullible and naive. Amber has a lot of issues, but we get more insight into her past as the book continues.

A fabulous twisty plot, with superb characters and a tense and dramatic pace, this is a must read for anyone who likes a good psychological thriller. Highly recommended.

MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


Sue Watson was a TV Producer at the BBC until she wrote her first book and was hooked.
A USA Today bestselling author, Sue has written fourteen novels, many involving cake and ice cream which have been translated into several languages and involved a great deal of ‘research.’ Sue’s now exploring the darker side of life with her second thriller ‘All Her Secrets,’ a dark, twisted tale questioning just how well we know our friends. This new genre doesn’t involve baked goods or frozen treats and Sue’s hoping the change in direction will be reflected on the weighing scales.
Originally from Manchester, Sue now lives with her husband and teenage daughter in Worcestershire where much of her day is spent procrastinating, eating and watching ‘My 600lb Life,’ on the sofa.
