Brilliant.
Cowerworth is the picture perfect neighbourhood.
Its manicured lawns and low crime rates make it the ideal place to raise a family. But in a quiet suburb, someone is always watching. And all eyes are on the couple who have just moved in. Marcus and Gina are everything you could want in neighbours: polite and friendly. They seem to be the perfect fit. Except Marcus has a secret. And you're his next victim.
It was brilliant.
Thanks to NetGalley and Headline for giving me an advance copy.

Tension Fuelled..
Is anything completely perfect? This neighbourhood certainly seems to be. We all know, however, that appearances can be deceptive and Cowerworth may well be a case in point. Watch your back. Well crafted, menacing suspense with a keenly observed cast of characters and an immersive, tension fuelled plot littered with twists.

This book was very different than the usual books that i have read. This book was very twisting and gripping. Very well written.

Marcus and Gina move to a pretty chill town Cowerworth. Right off the bat, the couple meets their new neighbors Sarah, Keith and their son Dillion. There is an immediate attraction between Marcus and Sarah which leads to a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Everyone has secrets and specifically Marcus has some mind-blowing revelations. No spoilers here, you have to read to find out more!

This storyline is very clever and keeps you hooked! Just as the story goes on the twist and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Quick and entertaining read.

Another great read by Michelle Teahan, I couldn’t put it down needing to find out which psychopath came out on top.

It was the title that got me....

"Knock, Knock"

Well tell me, who's there?

Wouldn't you like to know

This might have been one of the easiest most fluid reads I have read in a long time and I truly enjoyed it from start to finish.

A true thriller that will have you creeping up to the next chapter, shyly.

All expectations were exceeded and although this was my first time reading a book by Michelle Teahan, Im sure it will not be my last!

Check out this teaser :

Knock Knock: An undeniable, compelling thriller! So many secrets & lies abound in this tight-knit community. A strong, protective mom & a threatening next door neighbor keeps you guessing with many twists and turns that you don’t see coming!! Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for allowing me to read this advanced copy.

This is the first book I have read by the author was very excited to have been approved for this as she is a local author and I have heard really good things. I flew through this book as it was quick paced and intriguing & the second half of the book was unputdownable. I will say the twist was shocking and really enjoyed reading this novel & loved the genius plot and will definitely be checking out her other book. Thanks to the publisher, the author and netgalley for this arc.

Blew my mind! One of the best psychological thrillers I have ever read!

Marcus and Gina move into their new house in an affluent suburb, where the neighbours are all close, socialising together and popping in for coffee. Marcus is instantly attracted to their next door neighbour, Sarah, but he doesn’t get his thrills from the affair alone, Marcus is a twisted psychopath.

The first twist rendered me speechless with shock; never in a million years did I expect that and then the author kept throwing the most jaw-dropping curveballs all the way to the epilogue.

The plot is, quite simply, genius!

5 ⭐️ Thanks to Netgalley, Michelle Teahan and Headline for an ARC in return for an honest review.

This has a lot of things going on in the story but it was really good you will want to pay attention to everything. Though I will say you probably will still not see the twists that come.

Absolutely brilliant book from an author I've not read before and now want to read her other book too.

Had me addicted from the very start and I didn't want to put it down but also didn't want it to end. Loved the writing style, was convinced I knew who was talking to the therapist, then thought it was someone else only to find out I was wrong on both and it was someone else entirely! Great book - really enjoyed how the story unfolded and was quite surprised by some of the twists and turns. Would highly recommend this book, read it, you won't be disappointed.

This book was a bit of a slow burner for me. It had an intriguing start but then I found the pace slowed somewhat until the middle third when it picked back up and became a gripping thriller that I couldn’t put down. I would rate it 3.5 stars. Thank you to NetGalley, Headline and the author for the chance to review.

Thank you #netgalley for the advanced copy!

Wow! This one caught me off guard with so many twists and turns, I finished it within 24hrs! In a seemingly small quite suburb, Marcus and Gina are the new neighbors everyone keeps talking about. We quickly release they are running from something and Marcus has a lot of secrets. But little did we know others in the neighborhood also had their own secrets, as the stories progresses we watch the deceptive neighbors betray each other and at times protect each other, even in uncomfortable situations. Great psychological thriller!

This was such a thrilling read, it had me second guessing who to trust with all the twists and turns.

This was a good domestic thriller but not standout. I liked the writing style and characterisation was good, but at times it wasn't beleivable to me. That said I enjoyed it on the whole and the premise was good.

A fabulous book from another new author I have not read before which grabbed me from page one and did not let go, the second half of the book was even more exciting.

Marcus is married to Gina but there are things about Marcus that Gina is not aware of. They move to a quiet town named Cowerworth and soon Marcus and Gina meet their new neighbors Sarah, her husband Keith and their son Dillon. Marcus is straight away taken with Sarah and it seems the attraction is mutual but Sarah may be playing with fire without even knowing it. As time moves on we learn more about Marcus and what drives him, it is hard to say too much here without providing spoilers so I will limit what I say. ..

Sarah and Marcus start meeting quietly when their other halves are sleeping. There is a gate that adjoins both yards and they meet to talk, soon they are flirting and each of them now has the other on their minds most of the time. This soon becomes a game of cat and mouse but there are some major revelations in the second half of the book and this is where the book really picks up speed. I have to say that this is a very clever story and Michelle Teahan does a brilliant job of drawing the reader in and then keeps us on the edge of our seats as events happen moving the book to a very suspenceful, gripping and surprising end, loved it.

Thank you to Netgalley, the author and publisher for an advanced copy, all opinions expressed are my own.

A traditional domestic thriller, this one started a little slowly but quickly ramped up. Told from multiple POVs, this book has got many twists and surprises. Though some of the twists are predictable, many were not. The ending was a definite surprise.

This was a great read and a real page turner and once I got going on it I couldn't stop reading it until I knew how it would end.

Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the advanced read.
