THE NEIGHBORS by HANNAH MARY MCKINNON is an intriguing, gripping, and thrilling story that kind of took me a little bit by surprise. Let me just say holy moly what an ending! I found the storyline to be quite enjoyable and entertaining but I wouldn’t say that it was all that suspenseful though. It was one of those books for me that held my attention enough throughout the story and then when those twists and turns hit, the story really came together and left me thinking WOW. I absolutely love it when an author uses this approach as I feel totally elated and satisfied in the end!

HANNAH MARY MCKINNON delivers an extremely impressive, well-written, and subtle story here with well-drawn and well-written characters. The characters were so interesting to read about and each had their own unique voice and contribution to the storyline. The story was told in the present day as well as flashbacks from 1992 in multiple points of view. I thoroughly enjoyed the way that this story was told and when all the secrets and lies were revealed in the end it was extremely pivotal to the story in a whole for me. There was one reveal that I was a little disappointed with so that is where this story lost a star from me.

The ending was quite interesting, shocking and totally blew me away. I thoroughly enjoyed this highly entertaining and unputdownable story! Would recommend!

This was a Traveling Sisters Read that I read along with Brenda and Lindsay, and we all ended up really enjoying this one!

Thank you so much to NetGalley, Harlequin, and Hannah Mary McKinnon for the opportunity to read an advanced copy of this book in exchange for a review.
