Publisher's Summary

From a phenomenal new voice in suspense fiction comes a book that will forever change the way you look at the people closest to you...

Shadow Cove, Washington, is the kind of town everyone dreams about - quaint streets, lush forests, good neighbors. That's what Sarah thinks as she settles into life with her new husband, Dr. Johnny McDonald. But all too soon she discovers an undercurrent of deception. And one October evening when Johnny is away, sudden tragedy destroys Sarah's happiness.

Dazed and stricken with grief, she and Johnny begin to rebuild their shattered lives. As she picks up the pieces of her broken home, Sarah discovers a shocking secret that forces her to doubt everything she thought was true - about her neighbors, her friends, and even her marriage. With each stunning revelation, Sarah must ask herself, Can we ever really know the ones we love?

    "fun but silly"

    This is one of those super easy to read, whodunit. Entertaining enough for a car ride, but it certainly does not offer anything new or particularly exciting.

    "Okay...But not even close to Gone Girl"

    The Good Neighbor was a quick read. Fairly predictable, except for the stupid ending. No real exciting twists. And the prose was flat. Narration was decent, but there wasn't enough definition between characters and I got confused about who was speaking at times. The story was good enough to hold my attention, but it was nowhere near Gone Girl or The Girl On The Train. Those books were skillfully written and expertly paced. The prose, haunting and gut-wrenching and mesmerizing. The plots, mind-blowing. You believed even in their unlikeliness. But The Good Neighbor was a good try. Just don't compare it to greatness.

    "Worth the wait."

    The story takes a while to build but once it's all tied in the climax is worth the wait.

    "Not really what I expected"

    I was hoping for more suspense. It really wasn't predictable but I was hoping for more of a gasping moment. It took too long to get to the climax.

    "Good read but predictable..."

    I liked this book, it was easy to read and follow along with. When I'm going through a stressful or busy time in my life I like simplicity in the books I read. This one was simple, a simple plot, simple characters, simple to picture the scenes in my head and simple to set down a pick back up later.
    If you're looking for a head scratcher or thrilling book, this one isn't for you. The best comparison I can make is this is like a Lifetime movie. Plenty of people watch and enjoy them but they're almost always predictable.
    I rated 3 stars because I did really like the book.

    "A little clueless"

    Sarah seemed a little clueless about everything that was happening around her at times I felt myself talking back to her wishing she would open her eyes

    "Engaging Mystery"

    This is a good debut novel that kept me interested in the story and trying to differentiate the clues from the red herrings. I didn't figure out who was responsible before it was revealed, though with the 20:20 vision of hindsight, I could see the clues were all there. I liked the characters, but didn't feel particularly attached to any of them.

    I listened to the audiobook edition, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator spoke clearly and at a good pace, giving each of the characters a unique voice.

    "Dreadful"

    I lasted ten minutes. Absolutely dreadfully narrated, trash. Cannot believe I bought this, even though it was the daily deal. Could not even bring myself to continue listening to see if it improved.

    "Why did I buy this!?"
    What would have made The Good Neighbor better?

    Remove all the cliches and start again!


    Would you ever listen to anything by AJ Banner again?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Rebecca Roberts’s performance?

    Sounding whiny and gossipy seemed to be the natural state.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Must have done; as I continued to the end. But I felt like a dreadful vulture, listening to other people's upper middle class soap-opera style calamities.


    Any additional comments?

    Next time, I'll read the other reviews before buying, rather than just the publisher's blurb.
