Review: The Good Neighbor by A.J. Banner
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?
* 3 Stars *
I was hoping for this twisting and turning thriller that would knock my socks off. Unfortunately, this is more of just a mystery with a few smaller plot twists.
Although this wasn't what I was hoping for, this was a good book. There are some plot twists that will keep you reading. There are subplots that play into the main plot more than I thought at first. Everything comes together in the end.
If you aren't a fan of psychological thrillers and mysteries, then don't worry. This isn't as profound as the synopsis makes it out to be. It's just a story about a grieving woman trying to make sense of the tragedy that has happened... a husband who is acting a little sketchy and an unlikely ally or two. It is an easy read that you will breeze right through.
