This book had me gripped from the very first page and I could not put it down so read it quickly. It was well written with lots of different elements all rolled in together, well developed characters and a good pace/flow. Highly recommended.

Another tense and gripping story from this author, I have read all her previous books, all excellent and this one was just as good. It was a great page turner, brilliantly addictive with great characters and I just loved every page. I can definitely recommend this book a 5* plus read for me and thank you to Netgalley and Hera Books for giving me the opportunity to read it.

This book was incredible! It took me a second to get a firm grasp on all the different stories, but once I did it was so hard to put down. Unexpected twists and turns, which I love in this genre. Would definitely recommend.

The face at the window - @rubyjtspeechley. 🤯🤯 Wow - just wow. This is my first book from @netgalley and it did not disappoint. Very well written storyline about a student who has an affair with a married school teacher who is more than double her age. Nick (but calls himself Cole in his double life) is married to Gemma, who falls pregnant with his baby which makes him decide to call off his affair with Scarlett. Scarlett seeks revenge after feeling heartbroken that the love of her life no longer wanted her and applies for a job in his wife's restaurant. Gemma and Scarlett (although under secret name Rosie) quickly form a good rapport to which allows Scarlett to take drastic action to get back at her secret lover. ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Very well written and I have to say took a plot twist that I wasn't expecting. I felt that all the way through the book I knew where the story was leading, especially with the information about Scarlett's long lost dad - but I was very wrong. But not disappointed. Publication date: 28th July 2021. #netgalley #book #review #kindle #rubyspeechley #thefaceatthewindow

Loved this book!! The twists just kept coming and I found myself cheering the characters on because I connected with and loved them so much. I feel like the author could definitely write a sequel to The Face at the Window and I would love to read it! Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for this pre-release in exchange for my honest review!
