It’s something we’ve all done; stared out the train window at the gardens we pass and imagine the lives of the people we see. Rachel finds solace in those lives, while her own reality has seemingly fallen apart.

Drunk, unemployed and heartbroken, she busies herself with their business. And when the women she enjoys watching the most goes missing, it could be the finer details that Rachel has witnessed that could help solve the mystery.

Written from the point of view of all 3 female protagonists, TGOTT was so easy to read and very hard to put down. The relatable nature of this book was my favourite aspect, Hawkins really knows how women think and you are thrown in all different directions trying to decided who’s guilty and who’s innocent in this exciting psychological thriller.
