Book Description

From the internationally bestselling author of The Lying Room, a sexy, intricate thriller about the temptation of secrets, the weight of lies, and the price of betrayal and suspicion.

Who is more dangerous? An enemy, a friend, or a lover?

When Bonnie Graham arrives at her boyfriend’s apartment in London, she is horrified to discover a dead body in a pool of blood on the floor. But she doesn’t call the police. Bonnie hides the corpse and then carefully wipes away any evidence she was ever there.

Bonnie is a music teacher who spent a long, hot summer in London rehearsing with a band to play at a friend’s wedding. It was supposed to be fun, but the band members find the complicated knots of their friendships—some old, some new—unraveling as the days themselves unwind. What was meant to be a summer of happiness, love, and music turns deadly as lovers betray one another, passions turn murderous, and friendship itself becomes a crime.

Everyone tells lies. But is anyone prepared to tell the truth to uncover a murderer?

Book Review

The Other Side of the Door is an exciting domestic thriller where a woman finds her boyfriend’s dead body in his apartment. Bonnie decides to hide the body to protect the killer. Who is the killer? Everyone is lying and Bonnie thinks she knows the truth but is left wondering what really happened. The story switches between past and present. After a friend requests a live band at their wedding, Bonnie and some friends form a band. The band is supposed to be fun but things start to fall apart. Bonnie’s new boyfriend and ex-boyfriend are both in the band. The past sections start with the band forming and the couple meeting. This leads to the couple falling apart and then the present day when the man is dead and the woman hid his body. I was invested throughout the whole book. The Other Side of the Door is a mix of thriller in present day and drama in the past learning about the characters. I recommend The Other Side of the Door to thriller fans.

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Imogen Church. I loved the narration so much. Imogen is one of my favorite narrators and she did not disappoint in The Other Side of the Door.

Thank you William Morrow, Edelweiss and Harper Audio for The Other Side of the Door.
