About the Author
Cassie Hamer has a professional background in journalism and PR, but now much prefers the world of fiction over fact. In 2015, she completed a Masters in Creative Writing, and has since achieved success in numerous short story competitions. Her debut novel, After the Party, was published in 2019. Cassie lives in Sydney with her terrific husband, three mostly terrific daughters, and a labradoodle, Charlie, who is the newest and least demanding addition to the family. In between making school lunches and walking the dog, Cassie is also working on her next novel, but she always has time to connect (or procrastinate) with other passionate readers via her website – CassieHamer.com – or through social media.
You can follow her on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Things start going wrong in Cuthbert Close: Beth is worried about her husband Max, Cara and her daughter Poppy are concerned about the future and Alex is finding it ever more challenging to juggle her responsibilities as the mother of twins with being a corporate lawyer.
‘Yesterday, I held a funeral for a guinea pig. I will not judge you.’
Beth, Cara and Alex establish a new business, but someone seems determined to sabotage them. Alex is offered her dream position, but there are domestic issues to consider. Beth is worried about her marriage, and Cara has parental expectations to meet (or avoid).
What does the future hold for these women in Cuthbert Close?
Contemporary issues (with an occasional twist) in middle class suburbia: issues that many of Ms Hamer’s readers will be able to relate to. I enjoyed this novel, the relationships between the main characters and the challenges they were trying to meet. There’s a wry humour in the storytelling which I really enjoyed.
‘The past is who we are, for better or worse.’
Note: My thanks to NetGalley and Harlequin HQ Fiction for providing me with a free electronic copy of this book
for review purposes.
I loved the friendship between the three women. They were so different from each other and they definitely had their ups and downs, but they always managed to patch things up – usually over something delicious that either Beth or Cara cooked up. Poor old Alex was not much of a cook and never had the time anyway between work and her two young boys. But like any good friendship group, they mostly managed to overlook each other’s faults and back each other up when it was really necessary.
Along with their own individual issues the three women are also faced with a mystery that they needed to figure out together: what is really going on with Charlie Devine? From dead hamsters to corporate sabotage, it seems like Charlie is hell bent on causing trouble in their peaceful little world and the ladies of Cuthbert Close are determined to put it stop to it.
I was immediately drawn to the gorgeous cover, particularly since the cheeky little black and white cat running across top looks exactly like my own cat! I was also inspired to try a version of the Eton mess pictured, although the ladies of Cuthbert Close used a different recipe to mine that spices things up a little, and I am very excited to try the Melted Snickers Mug Cake soon. You can grab a copy of these recipes and more from the author’s Facebook page!
Full of warmth, humour, friendships, mystery, delicious food, and highly relatable characters, The End of Cuthbert Close is a lovely read and highly recommended.
Cuthbert Close could be like many suburbian streets around Australia. While celebrating with the traditional street party, new neighbour Charlie and her daughter roar into the street. But these newbies don’t seem to appreciate the welcoming gestures of their neighbours.
This was a very easy read which centres around three friends and their families. Beth, Cara and Alex each have their issues to work around and they can’t understand why Charlie is so stand offish.
This was more of a suburbian drama. I felt that not alot out of the ordinary was happening but some how, I was swept up with it all and just wanted to keep reading. A good way to pass the time in these strange days when we’re encouraged to stay at home.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy to read.
