After being in a long-distance relationship for a while, Alice and Leo take the plunge and move in together in an exclusive gated community in London. With only 12 houses in “The Circle,” most of the neighbors are already cozy, and Alice worries she won’t fit in.

Leo bought the house for a steal, and it’s not until after they’re settled in that Alice discovers why β€” a tragedy befell the previous owners. While working at home alone as a translator, Alice becomes increasingly obsessed with Nina, a therapist who lived in the house before. Alice believes the police got the details of the case all wrong, and she’s determined to find out what really happened at #6 The Circle.

I love a group of neighbors with secrets to hide. The beginning of this book hooked me right away and had some pretty creepy moments. Was someone in their house watching them at night? Or just overactive imaginations? The middle slowed down a bit with Alice visiting with neighbors but never getting much out of them. Plus she was so gullible! The great thing about this book was that anyone could have been the culprit. I didn’t have it figured out until the very end.

Even though Alice could be frustrating and her constant fixation on Nina was unusual, I found THE THERAPIST to be tense and twisty domestic suspense. β€” 𝓓𝓲π“ͺ𝓷π“ͺ

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

  1. This reminds me a lot of a book I read earlier this year, The New Neighbors. Paris is hit or miss for me. I feel like after the hype of the first book, they’ve all been just okay thus far.

  2. So glad you liked this one, and it’s so good when you can’t figure out the end until you get there. Lovely review!


  3. Sounds fun! I love the creepiness aspect and the idea of someone maybe watching them at night? Yikes! Plus it’s always nice when you can’t guess the end. I’ve only one read one BA Paris but this sounds great!


  4. I think I’m going to try the audio book with this one. It sounds so good but I’ve heard some mixed reviews about it (and this author) and I’m more patient with audio books. I had been on the fence but you convinced me to give it a try!


  5. I wondered about this one. It’s hard to see a character believe the unbelievable, right? I’m always shaking my head while reading when that happens. I want to shake the characters, lol. Glad to hear you enjoyed the story!
