Mini-Review: That Woman Next Door by Harper Bliss

Sometimes what you’re running from is exactly what you need


Olivia Chevalier is perfectly happy living a quiet life of solitude with her two cats in the tempestuous countryside of Brittany.

Olivia’s peace is disrupted when heartbreaker extraordinaire Marie Dievart moves in to the holiday home next door after an event at work makes her flee her everyday life.

Olivia hates having a neighbour and Marie is put off by Olivia’s cranky ways.

But maybe these two women have more in common than they first believe.13

My thoughts

Harper Bliss writes characters that I can relate to on an intimate level. It is scary. It is like she peels back the curtain of my life and reveals all of my secrets. Then because I am slightly boring she throws in a hot lesbian, a great location, and some steamy sex. I have just given you the premise of That Woman Next Door (laugh).

Olivia and I could be the same person as I live a very solitary life which is mainly done indoors too. Olivia though is grumpiness personified. Bliss’ interactions between Olivia and Marie had me laughing aloud. I wanted to leave Marie in the bar just as badly as Olivia did.

The isolation. The conversation.The flirting. Bliss creates a cocoon for these characters to grow on their own and with each other and I love their journey.

That Woman Next Door is a smile inducing romance with just enough heat to keep you flipping the pages for more.

I received a free copy of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
