Book Review: The Block Party by Jamie Day

I snagged an advanced copy of the audio for The Block Party on NetGalley based on the cover and intriguing description. It definitely did not disappoint. I listened to this on a road trip and almost didn’t want to get to my destination and have to turn it off.

There’s nothing like a summer block party. Especially one on the affluent Alton Road.

Visit the secluded cul-de-sac whose inhabitants are caught up in a complex network of undisclosed secrets unbeknownst to both the outside world and even to each other.

During the annual summer block party, someone winds up dead, leaving everyone wondering who is responsible and why. Flashbacks over the past year from multiple points of view unravel rivalries and betrayals, revealing that the true threat resides within their own neighborhood.

As the truth unfolds, it becomes evident that appearances can be deceiving, and nobody and nothing is ever as they appear.

This was one of those that kept me guessing the entire time, and I was so glad to have a 12-hour road trip to tear through the whole thing. Thrillers with neighbors who are different behind closed doors are always extra juicy. They also fuel my imagination while I’m walking the dog past my own neighbors houses, haha!

When The Block Party releases on July 18th, make sure you add it to your TBR!
