Newport Cove seemed perfect to Tessa and Harry Campbell so they moved to their two children to the idyllic little town. Everything seems so perfect. Tessa is welcomed into a group of women who have a tight little circle, but things are not as idyllic as they seem. GiGi is a little stressed by her husband's congressional campaign. His weaselly little campaign manager keeps digging into her past and she doesn't like the way he looks at their teenage daughter.
After years of being a stay-at-home mother and wife, Kelli has gone back to work in a busy real estate office. She didn't expect to find temptation in her handsome coworker, Miller. Will she jeopardize her marriage and her family for this man?
Susan's husband recently divorced her after having an affair with her best friend. Now her ex-friend is pregnant and she is living the life that Susan was meant to live. Will she ever find happiness again?
What the people of Newport Cove don't know is that Tessa and Harry Campbell are keeping the biggest secret of all. Their charming life will be shattered if the truth is revealed.
The Perfect Neighbors is as juicy of a read as there is this summer. We all know that while life may appear perfect on the outside, it very rarely is perfect at all. And that is what Sarah Pekkanen tackles in her new book. Newport Cove is really one of those charming little communities with where neighbors look out for each other. I loved the way the author included transcripts from the local list-serve. It really added to the authenticity of the community. However much the friends appear to have everything together, they are really all hanging on by a thread. I think of all of the women, Susan was my favorite. None of the women are perfect, far from it, but she was the one who seemed to be the only one on a path of growth, albeit slowly. And I think Kelli was my least favorite. I didn't like the way she was chasing after Miller. The author hints that there is something darker going on with Tessa and her husband, but it is the end of the book before the truth is revealed and it is pretty shocking. CLICK HERE FOR SPOILERS
Bottom line - The Perfect Neighbors is one of those juicy novels that will leave you wondering what dark secrets your own neighbors may be keeping.
