THE PERFECT HOUSE . . . THE PERFECT LIFE . . . THE PERFECT TRAP
Hannah Riley and her musician husband, Will, hope that a move to the countryside will provide a fresh start. Hannah is desperate for a baby, and she hopes that this new life will allow her to realize her dream of adopting a child . . . and revitalize her marriage. Yet when the worst snowstorm in years comes to Suffolk, Will is working in London and Hannah is cut off in their remote village, obsessively scrambling to turn the tumbledown manor into the perfect refuge for a child. Life in Tornley proves to be far from idyllic, however. Hannah has spent her professional life doing the right thing for other people. As she starts to uncover a terrible crime, she realizes she can no longer do that without putting everything she's ever wanted at risk. But if Hannah does nothing, the next victim could be her . . .

In this intriguing psychological thriller from British author Millar (Accidents Happen), Hannah and her musician husband, Will, move from London to a remote Suffolk village. Hannah feels an enormous amount of pressure to get the house in order quickly, because her hopes of adopting a child turn on a bureaucrat’s approval of her new home. When Will heads back to London for work, Hannah winds up snowed in, with spotty cell service. Over a wintry few days, she begins to realize that the villagers are “hiding something” about a local woman named Elvie. Meanwhile in nippy London, Will, a particularly sympathetic and nuanced character, wonders if living with Hannah “in the middle of nowhere” is for him. Can Hannah get to the bottom of the Elvie mystery without jeopardizing her dreams of family life? Her obsession with the adoption is at times laid on with a heavy trowel, but that is a small flaw in a generally emotionally compelling novel. (Aug.)
