    One thought on “The New Neighbours”

    1. Loved this! It reminded me of A Vacant Situation by JK Rowling which I also loved. This book centres round a group of houses that form a community and gives insights into each household, they feel a little superior and smug for their fortunate location but behind the curtains it's a different story, the book drew me in quickly, it's an enjoyable story, I like this genre and the book delivered everything I wanted.

    2. Not the bestI, like other readers was really disappointed with this book. It just didn't seem to go anywhere and there were far too many characters, all with similar names to keep track of. Found the whole book quite boring

    3. What a page turnerI thoroughly enjoyed it. It started off as boring but get to the middle I couldn't put it down because that's when everything started happening in Dartmouth circle which sounds like it's residents were most middle age and it was quiet and peaceful until one of the residents sold his house and was rented out to university students and they put their stamp on it . They threw a party to remember, husbands were no longer enough for some married women and no locks were good enough t [...]

    4. Do you enjoy a good soap opera? Then you will like this story.This book is well written, I appreciate the authors writing style. She expertly gave the gift of drawing me into the characters lives and I genuinely cared. Thus my reason for the 4 stars. However. For myself, I DO NOT enjoy a soap opera at all. I don't want to spend time reading about dysfunctional human beings destroying their lives. It's ALL in there. Affairs, divorce, gossip, teenage pregnancy, alcohol abuse, juvenile detention, t [...]

    5. I listened to the audiobook version of this story and it was a pleasure to listen to.The narrator really made the characters come to life and I enjoyed every word.I will be looking for more books by this author because I enjoyed this one so much.Recommended.

    6. As always, enjoyed another one of Diney Costoloe’s books. Yes, In the beginning a little confusing because of the large cast of characters, but gradually you get to know them and really want to know what happens to each of them! Another 5 star 🌟 🌟 ⭐️ 🌟 ⭐️ winner!

    7. UmmmmmmI just couldn’t get into the book. I kept waiting for something to happen, like someone was going to get murdered or their was going to be some traumatic event. But nothing ever happened but the same boring every day stuff!

    8. I enjoyed getting to know all the characters in this story, some were MUCH nicer than others. I could picture them all in my head, so well were they written.I'd love a sequel to find out what happened next to everyone and their homes.

    9. Good readEnjoyed this book. loved getting to know each family and charterers. Fun easy read about life in a suburban housing estate.

    10. Expected betterAfter reading about sisters hiding Jews in a convent I expected a little more out of this book then I got. She did her best to milk a story out of the lives of the people in the neighborhood it was lacing and ended very badly.
