Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

Someone is knocking at the door to Grace Adams' house, and he won't stop. Grace thinks she knows who it is, but when she goes to her second floor window for a look she sees a woman she doesn't recognize. The woman isn't alone for long before a man emerges from the dark of the surrounding woods, stabs her, and leaves her for dead. Trying to help, Grace goes to the woman and is shocked to find that it's her mother Leanne - a woman who abandoned her 11 years before.

Any additional comments?

Well narrated and easy to listen to. A classic mystery novel. I took off one star because I figured out the mystery early on. However, I enjoyed the story and seeing how the evidence led them to my conclusion.

The advise given in this book is useful for married people at all levels. I'm not a Christian, but looked past that part of the book and found it still helpful, however this is a big part of his message. The narrator was easy to listen to. This would be a perfect book for a newly married Christian couple.
