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?

My Thoughts: 
Now I really didn't know what I would think of this book by seeing some of the reviews on Goodreads. I was kind of nervous to see what I would enjoy. Now the concept of the book wasn't bad, but I think I would of like a longer plot. It was a thriller that did at some point had me at the tips of my toes. However I did have in the back of my mind that the story was not going to have my attention, but boy was I wrong. I could understand some of the reviews viewpoints on how they felt but I thought Banner did a good job. I liked the characters of the book but they could have used a bit of spice here and there but I didn't get less for what I settled for. 

A.J. Banner
A. J. Banner grew up reading Agatha Christie, Daphne du Maurier, and other masters of love and mystery. She enjoyed sneaking thrillers from her parents' library, which gave her excellent fodder for her first novel of psychological suspense, The Good Neighbor. Born in India and raised in North America, she always dreamed of writing gripping stories in which nothing is what it seems. She's hard at work on her next novel in her home office overlooking a Pacific Northwest forest.
