| Had potential but falls flat midway through
An annoying 17 year old girl, whose mother died giving birth to her, comes across her new neighbour, a 31 year old stunning brunette who has a young baby, and who appears to be without a husband, boyfriend or any man in her life.

The young girl develops an obsession for her hot neighbour. BUT IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK.

It should be that. Lesbian lust, but it isn't.

Instead the girl stumbles across the neighbour's secret which she feels she must stop others knowing about.

A rather plodding drama that starts off well, then loses its way midway through. The ending could have been good, but instead we're treated to a rather unrealistic finale.

Only 5/10 from me.
