Welcome, neighbor!
Julie Prentice and her family move across the country to the idyllic Mount Adams district of Cincinnati, hoping to evade the stalker who’s been terrorizing them ever since the publication of her bestselling novel, The Murder Game. Since Julie doesn’t know anyone in her new town, when she meets her neighbor John Dunbar, their instant connection brings measured hope for a new beginning. But she never imagines that a simple, benign conversation with him could set her life spinning so far off course.
We know where you live…
After a series of misunderstandings, Julie and her family become the target of increasingly unsettling harassment. Has Julie’s stalker found her, or are her neighbors out to get her, too? As tension in the neighborhood rises, new friends turn into enemies, and the results are deadly.

A young couple decide to move and start over miles away from where they are.   But, can you ever "run away" from your past, your present, and sometimes your future?   They move to a nice, family oriented town but things start to get bad, everything is going wrong, tragically wrong.  
The author gives us neighbors of the couple, they didn't know each other and perhaps it should have stayed that way.  But it didn't.  They soon became friends, or at least in the term friend.  How much do you REALLY know about your neighbors?   Are they really your friends?  Or is it just a hazy fog that if you look really hard you can see through it?
What lies behind the neatly groomed lawns, the perfectly maintained houses, the white picket fences and the get togethers?   Secrets, darkness and maybe tragedy?

 Such a page turner. It will have you wondering about your neighbors, your friends.   As you turn the pages, a coldness will enter your body and you may want to close the book tight and forget you started it.  But, you won't be able to.  By the time you reach that point, the author has you hooked and you won't be able to stop until the last page, but will that be the END?
Do you live on a street similar to Pine Street?  You might consider moving, but will that solve the problem?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Night Owl Reviews in exchange for my unbiased and honest review.

I would give this book 5  STARS.
