Description

Welcome to Kensington Grove, the safest place to call home....

Jodie Madison can't think of a better place for a fresh start than the exclusive, gated community of The Grove. But from the moment she passes through the wrought iron gates, she starts to suspect she's made a mistake.

Despite her vow to keep apart from the other residents, Jodie can't help but feel drawn to her unnerving neighbour Norah Williams and terminally ill daughter, Lacey. Jodie knows she should stay away, but something draws her in.

When a murder shocks The Grove, Jodie vows to do everything in her power to save Lacey from her mother. But as more secrets emerge from Norah's shadowy past, Jodie is faced with the unthinkable - Norah's not so different to herself, and neither woman is innocent.

The past won't stay hidden forever. And The Grove will be an unforgiving witness.

A phenomenal debut novel.
The Girl Beyond the Gate
By Becca Day

This was a dark and twisted book that I couldn't stop reading! 
Gritty and compulsive, this thought-provoking thriller contains several interesting twist.
I never saw coming.
The characters you honestly have no idea which way this story is turning.
And that made it so much fun to me.
The characters.... Holy shit! Like Becca Day outdid herself here with these intriguing, interesting people.
I was totally immersed after the very first chapter. And this story never let up.
Y'all don't miss this amazing novel.

This was a great read! Loved Jodie and her slow somewhat reluctant ingratiation into the shady world of a gated community. The dual narrative works really well and i was kept guessing up until the very final twist! The characters were compelling and the pace was very quick, I devoured it in a day. A very intriguing debut.

I love this book, it was gothic, haunting and atmopsheric that I couldnt put down. It was gripping and engaging the whole way through with a level of suspense and unpredictability that added an extra layer to the storytelling. It was a chilling read that has stayed with me since I read it. I really enjoyed it.

Really enjoyed this one. Couldn't put it down, had to know what the secrets we're on both sides.

This story is told from dual perspectives. Jodie - a newcomer to the gated community and Nora - the mother of an ill child who lives next door. Both ladies hold secrets from the past and don't see eye to eye. I thought I had it worked out so many times but nope, I did not.
