Publisher's Summary

A not-to-be-missed novel of suspense about the secrets hidden in a young couple’s new neighborhood.

Kat and Doug felt like Aurora Village was the perfect community. Minutes from the city, affluent without pretension, low crime with a friendly vibe - it’s everything Kat never had, and that she’s determined to provide for her infant daughter. Snagging a nice bungalow in this exclusive enclave was worth all the sacrifice. But everything changes overnight when Kat finds a scrawled note outside their front door.

That wasn’t very neighborly of you.

As increasingly sinister and frighteningly personal notes arrive, each one stabs deeper into the heart of Kat’s insecurities, paranoia, and most troubling, her past. When the neighbors who seemed so perfect reveal their open secret, the menace moves beyond mean notes. Someone’s raising the stakes.

As suspicious as she is of every smiling face and as terrified as she’s become of being found out, Kat is still unprepared for the sharp turn that lies just ahead of her on Bayberry Lane.

Weird but not a good weird

This book is about a woman, her husband, and her baby relocating to a dream like suburban community with neighbors who have secrets. Although she doesn't know it, she has enemies from her past who also live there and will stop at nothing to see her leave. That's why I bought the book. Unfortunately, the neighbor's secrets are implausible and just plain stupid. I credit the narrator with making me listen, but I couldn't stop rolling my eyes. This is a solid NO from me. Wish I had the credit again.

Garbage

This was such a disappointment. I’ve never written an unfavorable review, but then I stumble upon this book. I wanted to finish the book since I bought it, but no amount of money is worth torturing myself. From the robotic, monotone narrator to the poorly developed plot, it was the worst book I’ve read. As an English teacher, I read many books... so that’s speaking volumes.

WTH

I don’t even know what I just read... for real. I can’t imagine that if the book details matched the actual book story I would’ve bought this book.
90% of this story wasn’t needed; it was like the bull crap filling you’d write in essays just get the correct word count.
Horrible.

Slow, not worth the time.

Had a hard time keeping me interested, several times I thought about just quitting the book and moving on but I thought it had to get better, I was wrong. Great book if your having trouble sleeping, it will put you right to sleep.

Awful

Don't be fooled by the summary of this book! Terrible doesn't begin to describe this!
I personally like the narrator, Amy McFadden. She is not the reason this such a horrible book! The plot is bad, unrealistic, and so stupid!

A Good Read

I enjoyed this book very much. It doesn't read like a mystery, but there are many secrets that need to be revealed. All is tied up neatly at the end of the book. personally I don't like being left hanging. the narrator gave an amazing performance! This book is not in the genre I usually gravitate to. However a change is always nice and this was well worth it.

ok mystery/thriller

Listening to this was difficult at times esp in the beginning because there were so many couples and names to remember it might have been easier as an actual book.

The Narrator

I really liked the book, but it took me awhile to get used to the way Ms. McFadden narrated it. I realized that she narrated it the way the character probably would have ... since she was a bit uptight. Once I got used to that idea, she did a great job. :)
