Riot Rundown


Today’s Riot Rundown is sponsored by The People at Number 9 by Felicity Everett.

Notes on a Scandal meets The Couple Next Door in this dark and delicious novel about envy, longing, and betrayal in the suburbs. “Have you met them yet, the new couple?” When Gav and Lou move into the house next door, Sara spends days plucking up the courage to say hello. The neighbors are glamorous, chaotic, and just a little eccentric—they make the rest of Sara’s street seem dull. When the hand of friendship is finally extended, Sara is delighted and flattered. Incredibly, Gav and Lou seem to see something in Sara and Neil that they admire, too. In no time at all, the two couples are soulmates—sharing dinners, bottles of red wine, and even childcare—laughing and trading stories and secrets late into the night. And the more time Sara spends with Gav and Lou, the more she longs to make changes in her own life. But those changes come with an unsettling price. Soon, Gav and Lou start asking things they have no right to ask of their neighbors, with shattering consequences for all… Have you met The People at Number 9?
