So good! I love a book I can instantly feel a part of, no waiting pages and chapters to get into it, waiting for something to get me invested. This neighborhood group of women has a book club that meets each month. Of course, they all have something else going on in their lives and that's what makes the reading so interesting. I loved reading about Annie and her history with the Cottonwood neighborhood and Lena and her even longer history with it, Lena's slowly coming back to life within the community after the tragedy from so long ago. There are other women with similarly interesting stories, Janice, Deb, Nan, and Jen, who fill the story with their lives. The book has a few twists, some seen, some not, to make the reading so fun and quick! I would instantly pick up another book by this author. ( )

Despite two homicides, I felt this was “light reading”… and that is not a criticism. I found the book to be entertaining. Perhaps it was the ladies of the book club who were presented with humor, yet quite realistic!

There are a couple of secrets to unravel here and as one reads there are hints of some impending catastrophe and one from the past is slowly revealed as well. A fast, well paced read. ( )

I wanted to like this book because it was about books and bookclubs.

It felt like esperate Housewives. I've read a few that were at least enjoyable.

I found it all over the place and it never came together for me. I usually give a book 50-100 pages but I didn't even make it to page 50. Too many characters to follow and I couldn't remember whose kids belonged to who. It was slow.

I skimmed through the book to see who the murderer was (I knew who the "victim" was) but couldn't find it. ( )

Cottonwood Estates is the place you want to live and raise a family in. Good schools, low crime - and wonderful neighbors. That's the setting for L. Alison Heller's newest novel, The Neighbor's Secret. I love this premise - it provides a wide open palette for the author's imagination.

The Cottonwood Book Club officially meets once a month, but they've got numerous email chains on the go, keeping a close eye on their neighborhood. The monthly book club email reminder is priceless - quite witty. I quite enjoyed them. (And truth be told - it's a club I would join in a heartbeat)

There's a slew of club members, but the book focuses on three of them. Lena is an older long time resident of Cottonwood. She has closeted herself in her home, but is convinced to join the club. There's an undisclosed secret in her past, one she skirts around. And that only whetted my appetite for finding out what it was. Annie too has a secret she's tucked away. But her focus is on her teenaged daughter Laurel - her behaviour has become worrisome over the last few months. And last is Jen. Her son Abe is troubled, more than she lets on or acknowledges. A vandal is now targeting Cottonwood and scandals are simmering.

Short flashbacks from the past gives the reader more of an idea how the present has been impacted. Heller does a great job of eking out bits of the secrets, dropping hints and clues that left me thinking I had figured out Lena's past. I'm happy to say that I was not completely right about the final reveals. I'm always glad when I can't predict endings.

The suspense was not as high as I had expected going in. Yes, there is some, but the focus is more on the relationships between mothers and children, wives and husbands, friends and acquaintances.

The Neighbor's Secret is a well written, slow burning tale that will ask you - how far would you go to protect the ones you love? ( )
