Book Review: "The Secret Next Door" by Rebecca Taylor

You haven’t seen neighborhood drama until you’ve come to The Enclave, the heart of Rebecca Taylor's novel, The Secret Next Door.

The Enclave is your typical exclusive neighborhood, full of the haves and those struggling to pretend they’re haves. Everyone tries to make their lives look enviable from the outside even as they deal with marital, financial, and/or parenting challenges.

The neighborhood is roiled by the proposed building of a golfing entertainment facility on adjacent land. Neighbors take sides and accusations are thrown that one family might actually benefit from the development.

But when the body of a 13-year-old boy is found by the neighborhood lake, it touches off a powder keg of fear, suspicion, guilt, and, of course, gossip. It also causes two families to evaluate everything they hold dear and determine just what they want.

The Secret Next Door is a soapy, twisty book. If you’re a fan of this type of neighborhood drama book you’ve seen some of the story before, but it’s still pretty addictive. And Taylor really threw in some twists I didn’t see coming.

Thanks to Suzy Approved Book Tours, Rebecca Taylor, and Sourcebooks Landmark for inviting me on the tour and providing a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an unbiased review!!
