Book Review


I received a complimentary copy of A GRACIOUS NEIGHBOR by Chris Cander as part of a TLC Book Tours scheduled tour. Thank you to Amazon Publishing, Chris Cander, and TLC Book Tours for the gifted copy! And check out that gorgeous naked hardback hiding under the dust jacket!

A GRACIOUS NEIGHBOR follows Martha Hale, an affable wife and mother who lives in an affluent neighborhood of well-tended lawns and high expectations. If only her clumsiness at penetrating the social circles of her neighbors weren’t making Martha so lonely.

That’s why she’s thrilled when the glamorous Minnie Foster, a former high school classmate, moves in next door. Despite Martha’s determination, picking up where they left off is trickier than anticipated–especially when their memories of the past don’t always align. But Martha is undeterred. In fact, her preoccupation with Minnie’s life, her success, and her marriage is becoming an obsession. When she sees a darkness and shame hiding inside Minnie’s perfectly deceptive home, Martha realizes that not even Minnie’s secrets are what they seem.

Visceral, sharp-witted, and deeply empathetic, A Gracious Neighbor explores the judgments women pass on one another and the ills of a society curated to keep them on the outside looking in.

I haven’t yet had an opportunity to get very far into this book but it sounds really fantastic!

A GRACIOUS NEIGHBOR by Chris Cander is out from Little A on July 1!

PULSE just came out yesterday – so it is available to order now!
