“Addictive, suspenseful and masterfully written…will delight fans of Big Little Lies.” ―Michele Campbell“[A] witty, hyperlocal mystery…With a light, Liane Moriarty-esque touch…” ―New York Times L. Alison Heller, whose work has been praised by Liane Moriarty as “warm, witty…refreshingly true to life,” explores the ultimate sacrifices of parenting in The Neighbor’s Secret, a propulsive and juicy novel filled with gripping twists and instantly recognizable characters.How well do you really know your neighbors?With its sprawling yards and excellent schools, Cottonwood Estates is the perfect place to raise children. The Cottonwood Book Club serves as the subdivision’s eyes and ears, meeting once a month for discussion, gossip, and cocktails. If their selections trend toward twisty thrillers and salacious murder mysteries, it’s only because the members feel secure that such evil has no place in their own cul-de-sacs.Or does it?What happened to Lena’s family fifteen years ago was a tragic accident, and she will never admit otherwise. Devoted wife and mother Annie refuses to acknowledge―even to herself―the weight of a past shame. And new resident Jen wants friends, but as always, worry about her troubled son gets in the way.When late-night acts of vandalism target the women of the book club in increasingly violent and personal ways, they will be forced to decide how far to go to keep their secrets. At least they all agree on what’s most important: protecting their children at any cost―even if it means someone has to die.


Book of the Month Club SelectionNew York Times Editor’s Choice“Heller gives us a dishy tale of nosy neighbors, mysterious vandalism, family shame ― and murder…Heller places a ticking time bomb inside each character’s house, and locating them is half the fun of this book. The other half comes from Heller’s sense of humor, which is wicked without being unkind… You could read The Neighbor’s Secret as a lighthearted romp through Anyplace Affluent, U.S.A….but if you’re in the mood to get serious, this novel will take you down a different, more thoughtful avenue. With a light, Liane Moriarty-esque touch, Heller asks readers to consider the thin line between privacy and secrecy.”―New York Times “If you’ve been craving a Big Little Lies-esque thriller, then The Neighbor’s Secret by L. Alison Heller is sure to be one of your favorite reads this year.”―PopSugar, The 55 Best New Books of October“With its imaginative plot, charismatic characters, and wealth of dramatic revelations, this addictive tale is one of those novels that demands to be gobbled up in a single sitting. Great for book clubs (whose members may or may not have their own secrets) and for domestic-thriller lovers in general.”―Booklist, starred review“Heller excels at the complex characterization required to engage readers, resulting in a book that’s truly impossible to put down. The myriad anxieties her characters feel―fear for their children, their reputation, their community―are entirely relatable…With such a wonderful buildup and a truly surprising finish, The Neighbor’s Secret is a delight to read.”―BookPage, starred review“Entertaining psychological thriller…Readers will relate to these appealing women, who toss off one-liners even as they wrestle with such issues as teen substance abuse, bullying, and workaholic spouses. This is perfect for Liane Moriarty fans―as well as potential book club catnip.”―Publishers Weekly“Unfolding as delicately and suspensefully as the most finely crafted puzzle box, The Neighbor’s Secret is chock-full of mysteries that are elegantly solved as the narrative unravels…L. Alison Heller has definitely knocked it out of the park.”―Criminal Element“Addictive, suspenseful and masterfully written, The Neighbor’s Secret kept me glued to the page. This searing portrait of the suburbs, where the perfect surface conceals deadly secrets, will delight fans of Big Little Lies.” ―Michele Campbell, bests
