The Neighbors Review




The Neighbors
By Ania Ahlborn

About the book:

Andrew Morrison sacrificed everything—his childhood, his education, and the girl of his dreams—to look after his alcoholic mother. But enough is enough, and now he’s determined to get out and live his life. That means trading the home he grew up in for a rented room in the house of an old childhood friend— both of which are in sorry shape.

The only thing worse than Drew’s squalid new digs and sullen new roommate is the envy he feels for the house next door: a picture-perfect suburban domicile straight out of Norman Rockwell, with a couple of happy householders to match. But the better acquainted he gets with his new neighbors—especially the sweet and sexy Harlow Ward—the more he suspects unspeakable darkness beyond the white picket fence.

My Review:

I read The Neighbors in three days!  I could not put this book down.  The Neighbors will have you guessing until the very end.  The characters are full of mystery and intrigue that keep you glued to the pages.

The synopsis alone caught my attention and I knew I would enjoy this book.  I love mystery, suspense and thriller and this book delivered it all.

Andrew is a young man who is looking for an escape from his mother.  His life went downhill when his father left them when he was a young boy.  He finds his childhood friend, Mickey on Facebook and is invited to stay with him.  Looking for a change, Andrew quits his job and moves in with his friend.  The house is dirty on the inside and out.  The house next door is perfect and pristine looking.  Andrew looks to the neighbor’s house with need and want.  The neighbors appear to be the perfect couple, in the perfect looking home.

The Neighbors explore the idea of whether “the grass is greener on the other side” or not.  Appearances aren’t always as they seem and the reader learns this lesson along with Andrew.  Andrew is searching for a change; however, what he discovers is not what he wants.
