The NEighbor by Lisa Gardner

The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner

Boston crime reporter, Jason Jones, has a big secret. A past full of skeletons he is trying to keep hidden away. When is wife, Sandy, goes missing suddenly in the middle of the night, Jason becomes Sargent DD Warren's prime suspect. The mysterious and cold Jones seems the obvious choice. That is until the investigation gets muddled by a host of other possibilities.

I have read all of Gardner's books to date and have really liked every one of them. The past few have been different than her earlier romantic suspense and I like it. I think they have become more disturbing.... in a good way! Love this author. I also love that she is a New England-ah!

We seem to be reading the same books at the same time! I just finished The Neighbor earlier this week and finished Dismantled yesterday! I loved The Neighbor, but wasn't crazy about the others. I look forward to more of your reviews!

Hi Kristie-

That is funny! Ha ha! I looked at your profile too and we are also both teachers! So much in common.

When you said you didn't care for "the others" did you mean other Lisa Gardner books or Dismantled? I liked McMahon's first two books a lot better than Dismantled.

I really want to try this one...wondering if it's too "disturbing" for me though, haha. What do you think?
