The Good Neighbor by A.J. Banner ~ Fiction Book Review

25837341The writing was good, the pacing was fast, and the mystery was . . . a mystery. This book was quick and simple, but it kept my attention and kept me guessing until the end.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the lead character. There were some plotting issues, some issues with the timing of events, relationship jumps, and events and actions that seemed implausible, but I think with time this author is going to write some stellar books. Not everything has to be explained, but certain things do need to be addressed, and when a character is suddenly using a car that was in the shop, and the author puts a line in addressing that she had picked the car up from the shop after said character is in a scene driving with the car, a bit of editing may be needed.

But, all in all, I enjoyed the book, although the ending was awfully open. There must be a sequel coming. I think this is an author to watch. 4 stars.
