  • Easy read. Good story line.

    This book was very disjointed and confusing for me. It seemed to jump around quite a bit and it was difficult to keep the characters straight. I didn't have it figured out when the culprit was revealed but by the time it got to that point I was just trying to get to the end of the book. I was never really invested in the victim or the victims family and the main character was unlikable. It was an easy read but overall just not my favorite.

  • Riveting

    What happens when you leave home, determined to never return, only to return and face the past? Old friends, old memories, nothing worth returning for. But your father passes away and you have to return to settle the estate. Upon your arrival, you come across a young boy who was hit by a car and left for dead. You call the police and from there, the past seems to be connected to everything. But how to past behind you and move forward when even the future is tied to the past. A good mystery that kept me guessing until close to the end. Kerry Wilkinson does a great job in their book, the first I have read by him. I will have to check out more of his works.

  • An okay read

    I moved into the pages with no expectations. The Street of Elwood surprised me. It breathed and sighed and despaired, and Abi was right there to witness it. I didn't like her, per se, but liked how her presence had a triggering factor. It felt as if the street and its residents didn't know what to do with her. The story moved slowly giving me glimpses of past and present. It made me aware of the changes and the permanence of a place. Lines on the face of the people who lived there were deep, and none seemed rightfully happy. There was an element of suspense with Abi wanting to know the person responsible for the hit-and-run. For me, the focus was more on the people who stayed in the street and for whom, life had already gone by. A different read.

  • You never know your neighbours.

    The a Child Across the Street was a really great read from author Kerry Wilkinson. Abi Coyle returns to Elwood after 20 years away to tend with her father’s funeral arrangements finds a young boy in a ditch that’s just been hit with a car. The boy turns out to be the child of a friend she grew up with and no one comes forward with information about who ran him over. The Child Across the street is a page turning thriller which also has Easter eggs from Kerry’s other stand alone books so be sure to keep an eye out for them.

    Thanks for your feedback!
