Hello friends and Happy Tuesday! I am back in full swing with a bunch of fun Summer blog tours. I’ll be bringing a nice mix of Thriller, RomCom and YA Fantasy. Kicking off my tours and first up to bat is On a Quiet Street by Seraphina Nova Glass, which is a domestic thriller and quite the wild ride.

A simple arrangement. A web of deceit with shocking consequences.
Welcome to Brighton Hills: an exclusive, gated community set against the stunning backdrop of the Oregon coast. Home to doctors, lawyers, judges–all the most upstanding members of society. Nothing ever goes wrong here. Right?
Cora’s husband, Finn, is a cheater. She knows it; she just needs to prove it. She’s tired of being the nagging, suspicious wife who analyzes her husband’s every move. She needs to catch him in the act. And what better way to do that than to set him up for a fall?
Paige has nothing to lose. After she lost her only child in a hit-and-run last year, her life fell apart: her marriage has imploded, she finds herself screaming at baristas and mail carriers, and she’s so convinced Caleb’s death wasn’t an accident that she’s secretly spying on all everyone
in Brighton Hills so she can find the murderer. So it’s easy for her to entrap Finn and prove what kind of man he really is.
But Paige and Cora are about to discover far more than a cheating husband. What starts as a little agreement between friends sets into motion a series of events neither of them could have ever predicted, and that exposes the deep fault lines in Brighton Hills. Especially concerning their mysterious new neighbor, Georgia, a beautiful recluse who has deep, dark secrets of her own…
It isn’t often that a thriller keeps me guessing until the very end, but this one really threw some twists that had me reeling. We follow a couple of the women living in this gated community, each with their own secrets but somehow drawn together.
The characters were really well written, some I loved and some were very easy to like. Th plot moves right along and the pacing/writing was excellent. A true story of revenge and justice, and one I look forward to revisiting in the future.
Thank you for checking out my stop on the blog tour for On a Quiet Street, I hope I’ve convinced you to snag a copy or borrow from the library! If you have a thriller recommendation let me know in the comments, I’m always looking for new ones to read.
Positive Vibes & Happy Reading!
