Before She Knew Him by Peter Swanson

The Blurb On The Back:

”They had a secret, the two of them, and there was no better way to start a friendship than with a secret …”

When Hen and Lloyd move into their new house in West Dartford, Massachusetts, they’re relieved to meet, at their first block party, the only other seemingly childless couple in their neighbourhood, Matthew and Mira Dolamore.  Turns out they live in the house immediately next door.

When they’re invited over for dinner, however, things take a sinister turn when Hen thinks she sees something suspicious in Matthew’s study.  Could this charming, mild-mannered college professor really be the person Hen, who has been battling her own problems with depression and medication, thinks he is? Even if she is right, who would believe her?  As Hen’s suspicions grow, she and Matthew are drawn closer together.  But who, if anyone, is really in danger?

Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson

The Blurb On The Back:

Following a brutal attack by her ex-boyfriend, Kate Priddy makes an uncharacteristically bold decision after her cousin, Corbin Dell, suggests a temporary apartment swap – and she moves from London to Boston.

But soon after her arrival Kate makes a shocking discovery: Corbin’s next-door neighbour, a young woman named Audrey Marshall, has been murdered.  When the police begin asking questions about Corbin’s relationship with Audrey, and his neighbours come forward with their own suspicions, a shaken Kate has few answers, and many questions of her own.

Jetlagged and emotionally unstable, her imagination playing out her every fear, Kate can barely trust herself, so how can she trust any of the strangers she’s just met?
