REVIEW: Greenwich Park

Helen is a woman with a high risk pregnancy who has stopped work early. She attends her first prenatal class and is stood up by her husband and her sister-in-law who is also pregnant. She is left a bit vulnerable and finds herself drawn to a young woman in the group, Rachel. Rachel is not your picture perfect pregnant woman and no one seems to like her hanging around Helen. She seems to have a motive but Helen can’t quite figure out what it is.

I would call this more of a mystery than a thriller and really the real mystery doesn’t start until 2/3rds of the way through. The characters are pretty unlikable but I was interested in just why Rachel was so interested in this group of friends and then what happened to her. For a while, I thought, “oh this is predictable” But in the end there were a few elements that I hadn’t predicted. I think I felt it was going to be predictable because there were good breadcrumbs along the way and the red herrings were not so garish as other modern “thrillers.” The last chapter was absolutely perfect, if you think you know what’s going on before that, you don’t. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thanks to Netgalley for allowing me advanced access to this novel. All opinions above are my own.

Have you ever made a friend in an unexpected place?
