Author: A. J. Banner

Publisher: Lake Union Publishing

Genre: Women’s Fiction/ Suspense

Length: 196 pages

It was the perfect weather for a book like The Good Neighbor, rainy, eerie, and a too cold for my Texas bones.  So, naturally, I enjoyed it immensely.

It may be Banner’s first (official) suspense novel, but this debut definitely shows obvious signs of Anjali Banerjee’s skill and efficiency when it comes to weaving a winning storyline.  She artfully introduces you to all the relevant characters without confusion and quickly drops you into the midst of the dilemma.

It’s a little predictable and not a terribly riveting thriller, but it’s paced quickly and therefore makes for a great day off leisure read while hiding from the rain.

The novel reads nearly like a screenplay and could be easily adapted for an HBO or Lifetime special.  I’m looking forward to more of her work and will happily drop a few bucks on another one of Banner’s novels (and a coffee ) to curl up with.
