GREENWICH PARK by Katherine Faulkner is full of twists and turns and even some surprises at the very end.
Helen has an idyllic life with her architect husband, a gorgeous Victorian house, and a cherished baby on the way. Her fairy-tale life starts to unravel when she attends her first prenatal class, where she meets Rachel, a single mother-to-be. Lonely, she’s drawn to Rachel who is fun to be with, makes her laugh, and listens to her when all her other friends are too busy. But as time goes on, Helen realizes something is off, especially when Rachel starts showing up wherever she goes.
Rachel’s increasingly erratic behavior puts Helen on edge, and her friends and family begin to suspect that her strange new friend may be linked to a crime that happened a decade ago when they were at school in Cambridge. When Rachel threatens to expose the crime, she’s murdered.
Helen is incredibly naive—almost too much so at times—but I also felt sympathy for her. There are several romances that dissolve but one that remains strong in the end. A very different suspense that made me think of GIRL ON THE TRAIN. GREENWICH PARK is a good read that I recommend.
