Who doesn’t love a chilling thriller set in a calm and quiet neighborhood? Okay, maybe those aren’t the best if you’re trying to sleep soundly… On a Quiet Street, written by Nova Glass, is an intriguing mystery waiting to be solved.

Where there is one secret, there are hundreds. Cora has a sinking suspicion that her husband is cheating on her. The situation quickly becomes more complex when she goes to a neighbor for help. Her neighbor has her own motivations for helping, while other secrets are all but demanding to be uncovered.

Ohhh. On a Quiet Street is such an intense domestic suspense novel! I feel like it’s been a hot minute (read: realistically probably less than a month, given how many thrillers I read) since I read one quite this compelling.

I think the thing I loved the most about On a Quiet Street was its complexity. Every character had their own secret to hide and their own motivations for digging into the mysteries of others. It made for this twisty and dark tale that had shockingly human elements.

On a Quiet Street is split into three main perspectives. Cora, Paige, and Georgia. Cora, as mentioned above, thinks her husband is cheating on her. Paige is a grieving mother, having lost her son to a hit-and-run, and Georgia has her own set of complications to deal with, making it hard to ask others for help.

It’s a lot but in the right balance. I hope that makes sense! I love thrillers that portray different characters, and Nova Glass did a brilliant job here. It was easy to become attached to all three women for different reasons. All of which helped to make the story more complicated and captivating.

Thanks to Graydon House and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
