The perfect neighborhood can be the perfect place to hide…
Who wouldn’t want to live in Brighton Hills? This exclusive community on the Oregon coast is the perfect mix of luxury and natural beauty. Stunning houses nestle beneath mighty Douglas firs, and lush backyards roll down to the lakefront. It’s the kind of place where neighbors look out for one another. Sometimes a little too closely…
Cora thinks her husband, Finn, is cheating—she just needs to catch him in the act. That’s where Paige comes in. Paige lost her son to a hit-and-run last year, and she’s drowning in the kind of grief that makes people do reckless things. Like spying on the locals, searching for proof that her son’s death was no accident. And agreeing to Cora’s plan to reveal what kind of man Finn really is. All the while, their reclusive new neighbor, Georgia, is acting more strangely every day. But what could such a lovely young mother possibly be hiding?
When you really start to look beyond the airy open floor plans and marble counters, Brighton Hills is filled with secrets. Some big, some little, some deadly. And one by one, they’re about to be revealed…

I’ve been struggling with domestic thrillers recently. There’s normally lots of secrets, but nothing that goes beneath the surface. I’m always left with wanting more and I haven’t been picking up the genre as much. I’m so glad I took a chance on On A Quiet Street. It was exactly what I have been looking for in a domestic drama!
The 3 lead characters are so different, but work well together. Paige’s son was killed and she hasn’t been the same since. Her husband has moved out and she is obsessed with finding out who killed her son. She believes it was one of her neighbours and spends all of her time watching them. Cora is the typical stay at home wife and mother upon first glance. But there’s so much more to her, especially when she is determined once and for all if her husband is cheating. And then there is Georgia. A new mother to a baby girl who seemingly wants nothing to do with her neighbours.
I liked all 3 women and enjoyed how they weren’t how they first appeared. I felt for each of them as they navigated through their grief and challenges. I was hooked on what was going to happen with them. The book also comes with its twists and turns and I was surprised by so much that happened! Loved it!
4 calculators out of a potential 5. If you are like me and have been ignoring the domestic genre for a bit, check out On a Quiet Street to get you out of your slump!
