    • 1 2 STARS.The Perfect Neighbours By Rachel Sargent was my first read of 2018 and I m very pleased to say it was an enjoyable one.When Helen moves abroad to Germany to be with new husband Gary she is thrust into a tightknit expat neighbourhood.All her neighbours and her husband work at the local international school and from the start, it becomes apparent that things are not quite what they seem and as our story progresses we are taken down a rabbit hole of secrets and lies with events eventually [...]

    • 3.5 starsThe Perfect Neighbours No such thing Especially in this case, where we read about Helen leaving her life in England behind to start a new one as she joins her husband in Germany, where he works as a teacher at the International School Helen tries to fit in with the other teachers and their families living on her street, but soon finds some of her neighbours to be controlling and over involved, putting on an act of perfectionism although it becomes clear they ve got closely guarded secre [...]

    • The Perfect Neighbours is a brilliantly addictive psychological thriller with really excellent twists and turns, some divisive characters and a proper full on beautifully placed finale that pulls together all the strands of the narrative perfectly.To be honest, even when the Neighbours were initially introduced I couldn t help but think to myself actually for me these would be the neighbours from hell with their involvement in each others lives and the fact that they all are attached to the scho [...]


    • Helen leaves her life in England to live with her husband in Germany where he has gotten a job with a school Their home is in a community with other teachers as well as the Head teacher whose wife acts like a drill sergeant Helen is trying her best to keep her cool amongst these nightmare neighbors but when vandalism burglary and ultimately murder happens Helen is finally ready to run Unfortunately, Helen is a suspect The story itself was good, although it did feel much longer than it needed to [...]


    • Well,this book had twists and turns than a roller coaster.With so called friends like this lot,who needs enemiesPersonally I think a apt title for this book would be nightmare neighbours or neighbours from hell.They might believe in their own deluded minds that they are perfect neighbours but in reality they are mostly a bunch of unlikable,manipulative liars.From the know it all one to the little old man to the creepy one and his door mat wife,they are all hiding something,secrets that they wi [...]


    • Thank you NetGalley and Killer Reads for generously providing the ARC in exchange for my honest review Gary and Helen are a simple British couple, both teachers and newly married Gary has found a new opportunity as a school teacher in Germany and Helen has had to give up her job and move with Gary, since Gary s salary is twice than what he could have earned in UK So, Helen is a little skeptical about the move, but Gary convinces here by saying that their community will be a good change for her [...]


    • There seems to be an influx of psychological thrillers that have the theme of neighbours at its core, and if I m honest I ve read a fair few that I have found a mediocre read so I did approach The Perfect Neighbours with some trepidation From the off this book felt very claustrophobic, it s bad enough having one difficult neighbour, but imagine have a street full of them Within hours of moving into her new home, a street that houses fellow expat teachers from the local International School Helen [...]


    • With thanks to Netgalley and Killer Reads for this ARC in exchange for an open and honest review.Helen was the head of PE in a school in Shropshire She left her job to move to Germany to be with her husband Gary who is a teacher at the International School.The school provided a property along with the job in the grounds of the school Her neighbours in the street were also teachers at the school The neighbours next door were the vain and sarcastic Chris and his nervous downtrodden wife Mel Across [...]


    • This is a gripping psychological thriller with lots of twists and turns throughout the book Helen moves to Germany to be with her husband who teaches at the International School and at first everything seems ok But as Helen gets to know her neighbours she learns that there s something not quite right hereAs the story progresses the truth slowly comes to light and it keeps you hooked throughout When I saw the title I thought there s no such thing as a perfect neighbourhood and this book backs up [...]


    • Received a copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review From the very first chapter I was hooked The author made me hate so many of the characters and feel sorry for others I could not stop reading this one The story pulled me in and even though I figured it out about halfway through, it was not a let down when it was all revealed I had never read anything by this author before but I will definitely be on the lookout for books by her


    • Full of unlikable characters but that s the point I guess and a frankly ridiculous plot as to who did it.The flashback storyline was distractig than anything else.But I finished it,so it had some merit.


    • As the author, I m obviously going to give The Perfect Neighbours a five star rating Rather than reviewing it as well which would be no objective than the rating I d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has the read the book Thank you, thank you, thank you Your time is precious so I really appreciate you spending some of it with my characters.I d also like to explain a little about how I came up with the story The Perfect Neighbours actually came out of two separate ideas The firs [...]


    • Definitely a must read book, I couldn t put it down I was hooked right from the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed the twists and turns of this book and was not disappointed or guessed the ending My only problem is what book to read next as surely anything else will be second best Looking for any other books she s written.



    • I am finding it difficult to put into words why I disliked this book so much, but it just did not work for me When a book promises to be the most addictive debut psychological thriller of the year , you have high hopes for a book A plot centred around a British ex pat community in Germany, straight off the characters are mostly unlikeable and grated on me There wasn t a single character I could relate or warm to, and so from the start the story felt very disconnected from reality There were far [...]


    • Sadly this book was not for me,I found the characters unlikeable and the story hard to follow with too many back stories etc,the book did not flow and I found the constant German words used with the English in brackets annoying,,the idea of the book was interesting but sadly imo did not deliver as the cover and write up promised.


    • Helen is a newly married British PE teacher who gives up her way of life back home in Shropshire to join her husband, Gary, at an international school in Germany On arrival, Helen finds that they will be living in a rental community provided by the school alongside a group of Gary s teacher colleagues Suffering from culture shock and trying to give this new life a chance, Helen finds it hard to fit in and begins to feel uncomfortable with the increasingly odd behaviour of her new neighbours.Head [...]


    • The perfect neighbours is a psychological thriller that will have you speeding through to find out whilst feeling extremely claustrophobic This is the first book I ve read by Rachel Sergeant and won t be my last The book is based around Helen and from the start you et a feeling something is going to happen, your not sure when or where but you know its going to happen and most probably to Helen.This is a different kind of read that I enjoyed a lot You begin the journey with Helen having given up [...]


    • I really enjoyed this book which was the first book I had read by Rachel Sergeant Whilst the concept of the book is not completely original, it feels very different to anything I had read before and I read a lot of psychological thrillers due to the setting around an neighbourhood of families of teachers at an International School in Germany and the way in which is written by Rachael.There are a lot of twists and turns that one would hope for in a good thriller.I did not work out the ending unti [...]


    • Thank you to Netgalley for the chance to read this book A fast paced psychological thriller that made me glad I keep my curtains shut most the time, but did make me wonder about the strange noises I can hear in the middle of the night ah the joys of a terraced house The neighbours in this society are very much in each others lives, they come and go in a way that is so alien to me and yet it s itterky believable.The plot is full of lots of secrets, lies, twists and turns and it s peppered through [...]



    • Holy Cow Holy cow this book was great In a million years you will never figure out the story until the end Stick with it you ll be glad you did.


    • Good readGreat book Could not put it down Can t wait to read other books Good suspense and twists Kept you guessing.


    • Brilliant who done itCouldn t put this down Would recommend this to anyone who loves a good mystery Characters are really believable.d.Didn t see the end coming



    • Helen moves to Germany and gives up her career to support her husband Gary in his at the International School When she moves into the cup de sac and is introduced to the seemingly perfect neighbours but if they are so perfect why is there a German man, Sascha, stalking their every move I enjoyed the book and meeting the neighbours as their less than perfect lives are revealed and secrets from the past are revealed.
