The New Neighbor by Carter Wilson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A single day has changed his life forever. The day he lost his wife – he won the Powerball. Life can be funny that way. Followed by grief and memories of his previous life, he packs his small family and moves states away. New home – new life. But the history of the new house begins to hunt him. And while trying to resolve the mystery left behind by the previous owners, he builds up the courage to reveal his own dark secret to his family.
The plot twist was good, and I would have loved the story so much more if the novel kept the full focus on the first story, as I do not find the secondary storyline very intriguing. Although both stories are connected, and the substory was a great explanation of the events that took place, I wish it didn’t take as much space in the novel as it did and gave that extra pages to the main story which had my full attention. Thank you NetGalley and Poisoned Pen Press publisher for a free ad advanced copy of the novel.
