The Perfect Neighbour
Beth wants to love her new home on a quiet suburban street. She wishes she could make friends with her beautiful neighbour Oksana. She longs for a new group of friends. Welcoming neighbours to visit. Coffee dates and dinner parties.
But life here feels so closed. Then Beth runs into Oksana’s garden one day to fetch her runaway dog, and she sees something shocking that makes her wonder who her new neighbours really are.
A girl in the window.
A pale desperate face.
A hastily scribbled sign bearing only two words.
Who is the girl? What are the neighbours hiding?
Sometimes, it’s the most perfect neighbours that hide the most terrible secrets.
