My Review:

Neighbors lurking, anonymous apology letters, and scandalous rumors spreading like wildfire!

I love a Shari Lapena novel and this one kept me entertained and guessing throughout. I am still wanting to discuss the end! I think I swiped my kindle several times after the last paragraph. What?

The premise of murder in a cozy neighborhood has been a theme in the genre lately and I thought I knew where this was going, BUT it takes so many swerves and has such a perfect pace that I was eager to find out who was wearing the mask (So many hands in the cookie jar)!  

With all the neighbors covering their tracks and the detectives breathing down everyone’s back, their was a lot of squirming and pointing fingers.

This is one panicky neighborhood…

I was flipping the last pages to watch the penny drop!

I’m a huge fan of this author. Recommend to those who enjoy a twisty who-dunnit, and a clever plot with plenty of suspense and neighborly (or not) suspects.

Thanks to the publisher for my review copy. OUT NOW

Book Description:


Maybe you don’t know your neighbors as well as you thought you did . . . 

“This is a very difficult letter to write. I hope you will not hate us too much. . . My son broke into your home recently while you were out.”

In a quiet, leafy suburb in upstate New York, a teenager has been sneaking into houses–and into the owners’ computers as well–learning their secrets, and maybe sharing some of them, too.

Who is he, and what might he have uncovered? After two anonymous letters are received, whispers start to circulate, and suspicion mounts. And when a woman down the street is found murdered, the tension reaches the breaking point. Who killed her? Who knows more than they’re telling? And how far will all these very nice people go to protect their own secrets?

In this neighborhood, it’s not just the husbands and wives who play games. Here, everyone in the family has something to hide . . .

You never really know what people are capable of.
