Description

How well do you really know your neighbors? With its sprawling yards and excellent schools, Cottonwood Estates is the perfect place to raise children. The Cottonwood Book Club serves as the subdivision's eyes and ears, meeting once a month for discussion, gossip, and cocktails. If their selections trend toward twisty thrillers and salacious murder mysteries, it's only because the members feel secure that such evil has no place in their own cul-de-sacs. Or does it? What happened to Lena's family fifteen years ago was a tragic accident, and she will never admit otherwise. Devoted wife and mother Annie refuses to acknowledge--even to herself--the weight of a past shame. And new resident Jen wants friends, but as always, worry about her troubled son gets in the way. When late-night acts of vandalism target the women of book club in increasingly violent and personal ways, they will be forced to decide how far to go to keep their secrets. At least they all agree on what's most important: protecting their children at any cost--even if it means someone has to die. L. Alison Heller, whose work has been praised by Liane Moriarty as warm, witty...refreshingly true to life," explores the ultimate sacrifices of parenting in The Neighbor's Secret, a propulsive and juicy novel filled with gripping twists and instantly recognizable characters.

Critic Reviews

“"With its imaginative plot, charismatic characters, and wealth of dramatic revelations, this addictive tale is one of those novels that demands to be gobbled up in a single sitting. Great for book clubs (whose members may or may not have their own secrets) and for domestic-thriller lovers in general." -- Booklist , starred review "Heller excels at the complex characterization required to engage readers, resulting in a book that's truly impossible to put down. The myriad anxieties her characters feel--fear for their children, their reputation, their community--are entirely relatable... With such a wonderful buildup and a truly surprising finish, The Neighbor's Secret is a delight to read." -- BookPage , starred review "Entertaining psychological thriller... Readers will relate to these appealing women, who toss off one-liners even as they wrestle with such issues as teen substance abuse, bullying, and workaholic spouses. This is perfect for Liane Moriarty fans--as well as potential book club catnip." --Publishers Weekly "Addictive, suspenseful and masterfully written , The Neighbor's Secret kept me glued to the page. This searing portrait of the suburbs, where the perfect surface conceals deadly secrets, will delight fans of Big Little Lies ." --Michele Campbell, bestselling author of The Wife Who Knew Too Much "I love it when a thriller hits me in the funny bone, and The Neighbor's Secret did just that. Smart and darkly comedic, with nuanced characters delivering whip-smart dialogue, this story will have you grinning as you race through the pages. An absorbing tale that delivers some juicy surprises." --Kimberly Belle, bestselling author of Dear Wife and Stranger in the Lake " The Neighbor's Secret is the rare thriller that actually leaves you feeling better about humanity. Buoyant and big-hearted, I had zero self-control when it came to inhaling chapters to uncover each delicious new secret. This will be an easy book to recommend to everyone I know--an absolute crowd pleaser!" --Chandler Baker, bestselling author of The Husbands "Like the characters that populate it, The Neighbor's Secret is funny and engaging on the surface, but full of deliciously dark surprises underneath. Fans of Liane Moriarty just might read it all in one day -- I certainly did." --Laura Hankin, author of A Special Place for Women”
