Description

In this addictive novel set in the Depression-era South, New York Times best-selling author Mary Monroe transports listeners to a small Alabama town where home is not always a sanctuary, and two neighboring families let pleasantries mask increasing resentment....

Bootlegging was Milton and Yvonne Hamilton's ticket out of poverty, prison time, and plain bad luck. Now they've moved on - to a bigger, richer pool of clientele - right in their own respectable new middle-class backyard. And their growing friendship with seemingly-perfect couple Joyce and Odell Watson is proving golden in more ways than one....

As Milton soon learns, Odell is hiding an outside family and dubious business dealings. It's the perfect recipe for a blackmail scheme that will help Milton hide his own dirty secrets - even from Yvonne. Better yet, he can take ever more dangerous risks to ace out his liquor-smuggling rivals - and add a lucrative temptation to his illicit services. And Yvonne, emboldened by her husband's new gravy train, delights in tormenting Joyce about everything the snobbish matron doesn't have - especially children. 

But even a winning hand can be played too far. Pushed past their limits, Odell and Joyce will play on Milton's careless boasting - to get him and Yvonne out of their lives for good. And soon, a devastating frame-up will plunge one couple into a living nightmare - and set the stage for explosive retribution....

Cannot wait for book 3. I haven't had this level of excitement for a new release since the God Dont Like Ugly series!!!!

The ending sucks....i need the next book Now

I have read all Mary Monroe’s books and I am never disappointed. The Neighbor series so far is very interesting, but this one just like the first one ends abruptly. Of course, I'll read the entire series but in my opinion these books could have easily just been one good book..the characters in this series are hilarious

Do not waste your time

If you want to read this book thinking it will provide resolution to the first installment, do not waste your time. This book was written from the perspective of Milton and Yvonne, which sounds interesting, but ultimately never goes anywhere in regards to the plot of the overall story. Get it from your library if you are curious, but do NOT spend money or an credit on it.

Disappointing

This is my favorite author. I have loved every book written til today for years. This sequel to the first book was boring no point to the story and pointless. It really wasn’t a continuation. It just was not a good book nor interesting.

The Ending Sucked

Great book, great narrators, but it just drops you at the end. Hope there's a sequel coming soon.

Compelling Read!

Mary Monroe books are very profound! There is always a moral lesson in her stories.

Disappointed

I’ve been a Mary Monroe fan from the beginning but these last two books are somewhat stereotypical and I really didn’t care for the storyline. Focus on giving a more positive view of us.

Not a good sequel

The sequel was all Yvonne and Milton. No voices from Joyce or Odell. Cliffhanger from 1st book not really addressed. Doubt I will read book 3.
