    Wow, Wow, Wow!! Five dazzling stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Isn’t it always exciting when a new family moves into the neighborhood? Who hasn’t discreetly peered through the shades, checking out the incoming newbies? Lots of questions to be answered. Will they be pleasant and approachable? Perhaps even becoming good friends? Or will they just disappear, only to be seen coming and going when necessary. Plenty of drama all by itself, right? But what if it...

    The Neighbors by Hannah Mary McKinnon is a 2018 Mira publication. The title alone had me intrigued. However, I was taken completely by surprise by this story. I never would have guessed how things would evolve – or where it would end up. Back in the early 1990s, Abby and her brother were involved in a fiery car crash. Abby survived, thanks to Nate, the man she would eventually marry. But, Abby’s brother did not survive, and Abby has never for...

    4.5 Stars* (rounded up)Quite the Soap Opera!Abby and Nate seem like an amazing couple, married for 20 years, parents to teenaged Sarah - easy, breezy and comfortable. Nate worships the ground his wife walks on and as he always says, he loves Abby enough for both of them. When Abby met Nate, she had nothing left to live for: her brother had just died in a car accident for which she was responsible and she had been disowned by her mother because of...

    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 toge...

Abby has been very happy being married to Nate until the man of her dreams moves in next door. Liam looks as hot as he did all those years ago! The problem is that Abby and Nate can’t bring themselves to let...

    4.5/5The Neighbors is the kind of book that sneaks up on you, it lulls you into a sense of complacency with its lighter style of suspense and intrigue and then BAM the last few pages deliver an onslaught of twists that make you go, oohhh I see what you did there! I absolutely loved that approach and found it to be a really nice change of pace from a typical super fast paced thriller with twists and turns throughout, there was an air of refinement...

    You never know who your neighbors will be!! Wow!! What a story this was and the ending - holy cow, I did not see that twist(s) coming at the end. If I hadn’t gotten confused in the last part of the book I would’ve given this 5 stars but for that reason, it’s 4 stars. Great characters! Great book! Great story!

    This book! It was totally different than I expected and it grabbed me on the first page and didn’t let go until the last! It had a little bit of everything - lies, regrets, secrets, sex, suspense - and it all worked for me! Like many others, I expected this to be a thriller but it was more of a family drama which I love! I had read other reviews that the ending was a surprise and a surprise is an understatement!

    A SIZZLER! An entertaining story filled with a web of secrets and scandalous escapades that complicate the lives of the Jefferson’s and the Morris’s. Suspenseful and twisty, and THAT ending just flew out of nowhere. Wow. Enjoyed - a must read.

    The Neighbors was an entertaining story from the first page to the very last. New neighbors move in next door, and everything just unravels from there. Lies between husbands and wives. Tension between mothers and daughters. Old flames coming back into your lives. Secrets that you’ve kept buried for years and years. Lies you’ve told yourself to keep yourself sane. Deceit. Dishonesty. Unfaithfulness That’s what this book is.This story is told...

    I found The Neighbors to be a surprisingly enjoyable read!I love the new neighbors aspect, but I love even more when that is paired with secrets and lies! There’s nothing that makes you want to turn the pages more then when two families are keeping deep and dark secrets from each other. It’s addicting and that’s exactly what The Neighbors was!The whole story is based around the past and present of Abby’s life. In the past you are confront...

    In Hannah Mary McKinnon’s THE NEIGHBORS, two families are torn apart by a long-ago tragedy and secrets that won’t stay buried. When the Jeffersons move in next door, Abby Morris immediately recognizes her ex-lover, a man she left after a car accident shattered her life over twenty years ago. Forced to face the past, Abby realizes love, like tragedy, knows nothing of time. I was immediately hooked by the star-crossed premise and the expert pac...

    The Neighbors was an emotional rollercoaster ride! Full of long buried secrets, the story raced along to the end. And OMG! What an ending!! I loved it!

    1970-01-01
    This story is being marketed as a domestic suspense novel with review blurbs on the cover from authors such as Mary Kubica and Kimberly Belle, but what I read doesn't fit that genre well and setting expectations for such left me confused and ultimately disappointed. The tone of the story is striving for suspenseful, but it leans much more towards dramatic soap opera-y, complete with one dimensional characters. At the end of the story we arrive at...

    Secrets and scandal are at the heart of Hannah Mary McKinnon’s up-all-night tale, in which new neighbors threaten to unearth long-buried skeletons. Filled with a tangled web of twists and turns, The Neighbors is a gripping, edge-of-your-seat story all the way to the shocking end.

    Rounded up to 4.5 stars. I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did! Although it's not a thriller, it has a way of sucking you in and keeping you turning the pages to find out what will happen next. I figured out most of the story midway through, but there was one shocker I didn't see coming. Interesting, well-developed characters and a compelling plot. Highly recommended for fans of domestic suspense.

    Well, well, well.. I am pleasantly surprised. I don't know what I was expecting from this book, but I finished it in two sittings..

After a "few" drinks they decide to go to another bar to meet up with Abby's boyfriend, Liam. But Abby and Tom don't make it to the next bar. Nate is driving home and notices a car engulfed in f...
