#BookReview of The Neighbors by @HannahMMcKinnon

The Neighbors
Reviewed By: Rachael
Publisher: Mira Books
Recommended Age: Adult
Genre: Mystery, Thriller
About the Book: In 1992, a car accident kills a young man and forever changes the lives of three people… Now, twenty years later, they’ll all come to regret the choices they made that day, as the secrets and lies they’ve told to protect each other become the very things that tear their lives apart.

After a night of fun, Abby was responsible for the car crash that killed her beloved brother. It is a sin she can never forgive herself for, so she pushes away the man she loves most, knowing that he would eventually hate her for what she’s done, the same way she hates herself.

Twenty years later, Abby’s husband, Nate, is also living with a deep sense of guilt. He was the driver who first came upon the scene of Abby’s accident, the man who pulled her to safety before the car erupted in flames, the man who could not save her brother in time. It’s this guilt, this regret that binds them together. They understand each other. Or so Nate believes.

In a strange twist of fate, Liam (her old lover—possibly her true soulmate) moves in with his own family next door, releasing a flood of memories that Abby has been trying to keep buried all these years. Abby and Liam, in a complicit agreement, pretend never to have met, yet cannot resist the pull of the past—nor the repercussions of the dark secrets they’ve both been carrying…

About the Author: 
I was born in the UK and grew up in Switzerland. Unsurprisingly I love chocolate, mountains and cheese, and books, of course. 

When I moved to Canada with my husband and three sons in 2010 I went through an (early) mid-life crisis. 

Maybe it was the failed attempt at a start-up company or the fact I suddenly found myself in my forties, but one morning I decided to follow my oldest passion; I started writing and never wanted to look back. 

My first novel, Time After Time, a lighthearted, romantic read, was published by HarperCollins AVON in June 2016. My second novel, The Neighbors is a domestic suspense story, and will be published by MIRA in North America on March 13, 2018. 

Do I Recommend this book? Yeeeeeeeeees!

Notes and Opinions: The title alone had me intrigued. I couldn’t tear myself away.  I was taken completely by surprise by it. It is packed with twists, although I suspected a few of them beforehand. I loved the twisty love story woven in a web of secrets. The author is brilliant with her words. She had me hanging onto every sentence! It is an emotional, smart and gripping story, you’ll race through the pages. I didn't see the end coming at all.
