This is a short novella by Lesley Glaister. I only realised after I purchased it that the Sandstone Vista Series of books is designed to be read by adults with low literacy skills, hence a quite simplistic writing style. It's an enjoyable and easy read but not the same intensity of Glaister's other books.
A woman and her young son move into the house next door to Marion and David. The new neighbour seems friendly and her son quickly befriends Marion and David, often coming round unannounced to play with their cat and watch TV. The neighbour, Jo, starts the take advantage of Marion and David's good nature and repeatedly leaves her son with them while she goes out. David says that Jo is a nuisance but he increasingly spends time with her. What is really going on?
If you fit the target market of the Sandstone Vista Series or want a quick and easy read then I would recommend this book. If you are a voracious reader like me then you will probably feel disappointed by the light touch approach.
