Publisher's Summary

From one of the most gifted and beloved storytellers of her time comes a riveting new novel of suspense where one woman’s picture-perfect island sanctuary reveals itself to be filled with dangers.…   

At 29, Alison Marshall is ready to find a place to call home. With no family and no ties, she’s drifted from one small Florida town to another since high school, working odd jobs, saving hard, and building a nest egg. Once she finds the right place to settle down, she’ll know. And when she reaches beautiful Palmetto Island, she thinks she may have found it.   

The small, close-knit island community seems to have everything Alison needs. On a hunch, she contacts the island’s only realtor, and learns that an old beach house is on the market. Miraculously, it’s in her budget, and Alison takes it as another sign that she’s in the right place.   

At first, home is everything she hoped it would be. But as days turn into weeks, she uncovers a dark side to this supposedly peaceful haven. The locals have a secret, and once Alison discovers what it is, she faces a stark choice. She can stay and join them - or escape. But leaving brings its own risks, and Alison is starting to wonder if coming to Palmetto Island is the last mistake she’ll ever make....

An Easy Read

This book was just what I wanted to listen to today. A little mystery without being too complicated. I was able to listen while doing other things without having to go back in order to keep up with the story. If you are looking for a complex police procedural or an edge of your seat thriller, this isn't your book. But this is an entertaining way to spend the day if that is what you're looking for.

Fear Thy Neighbor

I didn’t really care for this book. It wasn’t nothing like the title. I also thought it was boring and I struggle to finish the book. I really couldn’t get with the person voice that read the book.

captivating

the story was fluid and captivating although I felt the ending a bit rushed and a bit unsatisfying and nothing was said about what happened to the helpful old lady on the bus or what happened to Ally once released from the hospital.

Painful. Can I get a refund?

I usually don’t write a review but based on the reviews listed I was baited into listening this book. The author needs to do some more research on foster care and real estate. The story was so far fetched it was hard to listen.
As a foster family I was really disappointed and offended with her views on the foster system. I know there are some families who are bad apples but she basically painted a picture of ALL foster families as horrible people who are just in it for the money or other unspeakable horrors. Also what 7 year old who is in foster care her whole life doesn’t know she’s in foster care? Visits are required by law once a month for cps and that’s not including visits from ad litem and casa. Just doesn’t make sense…
And real estate…who starts work on a property they don’t even own?? And who closes on a property the same day? I’ve purchased a few homes and even with a cash sale the turn around is not same day. These are a few of the details I couldn’t get past…it makes the story so unbelievable and hard to digest. Narration was good. Storyline failed.
