That's what Sarah thinks as she settles into life with her new husband, Dr. Johnny McDonald. But all too soon she discovers an undercurrent of deception. And one October evening when Johnny is away, sudden tragedy destroys Sarah's happiness.

Dazed and stricken with grief, she and Johnny begin to rebuild their shattered lives. As she picks up the pieces of her broken home, Sarah discovers a shocking secret that forces her to doubt everything she thought was true - about her neighbors, her friends, and even her marriage. With each stunning revelation, Sarah must ask herself, Can we ever really know the ones we love?

My Review:
It seems by the reviews that you either love or hate this book.  Many I know, hate it!  I, myself, found that I thoroughly enjoyed it!  I felt like the writing was great, especially for a first-time novel.  I was amazed at how quickly A.J. Banner's writing drew me in and kept my attention throughout the entire book.  Something that even experienced author's have trouble doing on a regular basis.

The story was short, but long enough to get the point across.  It was difficult to figure out what was going to happen next and who was to blame for what was happening.  A Good Neighbor was enough to make you wonder if even you yourself can trust your loved ones, your neighbors, and those that are closest to you!

I think that Banner is really onto something great with this book, and I will be interested to see if this becomes a series!  If there was anything I didn't like about the book, it was the way the ending was left to the imagination!  It left me wanting more!!!! 

Overall, I think that Banner did a stellar job writing this first novel, and I am excited to see what is to come in her future!  I think this writer has the potential to go extremely far and that she has done a wonderful job at writing her first novel!
