The Good Neighbor
Sometimes the past just won’t stay buried.
When 14 year old Brittany disappears one night, her parents are devastated, certain she has been taken.
They can’t bear to think about who has done this and what might be happening to their precious girl.
Even worse, the police seem to see them as suspects, implying that they may have had a part in their own daughter’s disappearance
From the moment that her new neighbours,the Cushing's moved in next door,Taylor had a feeling that something about them didn't quite fit. That things in their quiet cul de sac were never going to be the same again. Her suspicions seemed to be proven correct when as time passed,the new family didn't seem interes ...more
A missing teen Brittany, a devastated mother Moira, a caring neighbor Moira, and a friendly community of the cul-de-sac made them the pillars of the story. The chapters with different POV left me confused initially but gave me a fresh look at the situation from all angles. The author's deft hand gave a different perspective t ...more

I am speechless when I finally finished this book. I had to take a full day of complete sleep and distractions from any form of reading before I can finally make this review. I want to completely understand what just happened and confirm with myself how I feel about this book with a clear mind.
In the beginning, I was a bit bored with how the story started and its style of telling the story by using each character's perspective. I had to skip a few narratives about character devel ...more
Wow! To say this book 'packs a punch' is such an understatement - it more 'smacks you around the head with a 9 iron!'
The Good Neighbor starts off softly, albeit with a traumatic and shocking event - 14 year old Brittany has disappeared during the night, seemingly snatched from her bed. I have to confess I was lulled into thinking it would jog along nicely so boy was I taken by surprise!
The pace accelerates and accelerates before plunging you into free fall as more and more of the ...more

And you thought you had problems?
Insanity is only one tragedy away.
This is Cathryn Grant’s first book I have read and holy shit it packs a punch. This book is the tipping point for me to immediately add a few more of hers to my TBR (I seriously don’t need to be adding more but screw it…I can rest when I’m dead). I love the way she has weaved a chilling tale that in all honesty is completely believable. How real it was scared me acutely. I’m in awe how she used the enormity of a mother’s ...more
I’m honestly not sure how to review this book... I’ve been thinking about it since I finished reading a few hours ago. This is about teenager Brittany who goes missing from her bed one night and what follows is the search for her by her parents, Moira and Alan, and some helpful (and not so helpful) neighbors. The parents however have secrets and the neighbors have secrets and even Brittany has secrets, a home-schooled child who is bar ...more
From cover to cover I could not find anything I did not love in this book. The plot was so intense and intriguing and there were twists and turns at every page. The mystery and solving the disappearance of 14-year-old Brittany got more jaw-dropping as the story went on and the ending was a shocker which made it even more exciting. Not only w ...more
This might be the most amateurish and poorly written book I've ever read. I don't like to leave bad reviews but really, I'd be angry at the waste of my money and my time if I hadn't gotten it through unlimited. But other people are going to spend money on it, so I feel I should warn them. I kept reading until the end mostly out of profound puzzlement that the author actually thought this was ready for publication. It could have been a good i ...more
But this book is not real life and as usual with a thriller/mystery, there shou ...more

The plot for this book is based around the disappearance of a 14 year old girl called Brittany, supposedly taken from her bed in the middle of the night. Her parents, Moira and Alan, are very quiet and closed off to the rest of the cul-de-sac community where they had recently moved to. We follow several people's point of view, including Brittany before she disappeared, s ...more
*I received a complimentary ARC of this book from NetGalley & Inkubator Books in order to read and provide a voluntary and honest review, should I choose to do so.
The story follows a group of neighbors after a 13-year old girl who lives in their neighborhood is abducted from her room one night. I liked the plot lines- family secrets coming to life are so exciting! The characters were pretty well developed. And the twists were good, even if I did know they were coming.
Thank you to netgalley & Inkubator Books for the copy in exchange for the honest review! The Good Neighbor publishes on September 8th, 2019!
Her psychological suspense fiction reveals the motives and desires that lead to suburban crime. ...more
