A coveted neighborhood, new neighbors who are trouble, and a terrible accident is where we meet everyone who lives on Lowland Way.
We meet the original neighbors of Lowland Way through police interviews as well as the weeks prior to the incident where the neighbors had to put up with loud music, cars being sold like a used car lot, rude comments, and unsafe scaffolding that extended into a neighbor's property.
We also meet Darren and Jodi Booth, the new neighbors, who are causing all the trouble and turning the quiet Lowland Way neighborhood into a nightmare.
Each chapter was titled with the name of one of the residents and described their interaction with the rowdy neighbors and each other.
THOSE PEOPLE did take some effort to continue because the characters were not likeable.
Darren was a troublemaker extraordinaire. He turned things around to make it look like it was someone else who caused the accident as well as other incidents and claimed nothing was his fault. He even had the police convinced someone had tampered with the scaffolding at this home and made it collapse.
It actually was difficult to believe anyone because the other characters were not living in reality and whined a lot.
It took a few chapters to get interesting and realize any one of the disgruntled neighbors actually may have done something to Darren's scaffolding.
The style of the book was different and kept me guessing about who caused the accident - was it faulty construction, was it done on purpose to harm Darren but instead backfired and killed someone else?
There was a lot of drama going on before the new neighbors arrived and even more now.
If you enjoy a slow, drawn out mystery, you will want to add THOSE PEOPLE to your TBR. 4/5
This book was given to me as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
