Praise for Quiet Neighbors:
'Quiet Neighbors drew me in from the very first page, and I stayed up late reading it because I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. That's the definition of a good book.' —Charlaine Harris, #1 New York Times bestselling author
'McPherson writes mystery stories that are both cozy and creepy, which accounts for the quirky charm of Quiet Neighbors.'—The New York Times
'Outstanding.'—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Starred Review McPherson is a master of slightly creepy narratives that are complex and character driven.—Library Journal (starred review)
Quiet Neighbors is a real find. This is one of those ideal stories that you cannot put down and actually feel sad when it's over.—Suspense Magazine
Quiet Neighbors is a cleverly conceived, skillfully executed, decidedly nontraditional small-town mystery that is bursting at the seams with warmth, wit, moxie, and menace.—Mystery Scene
Despite the dark underpinnings, this is also a story of love, family, trust, and forgiveness.—Booklist
Intricately layered and psychologically taut.—The Strand Magazine

Took me weeks to get into this book. I finished other books in the time it took me to bring myself to finish this one. I only did because I feel guilty leaving books partially read on my kindle. It gives me anxiety. It started out so dull and I found the way it was written to be confusing and I had to reread sentences over and over to make sure I understood. Maybe I'm dumb.
All the mysteries in this book, while they interested me slightly whilst reading, just didn't pay off satisfyingly. It's a quaint read but just not my style. I like things I can breeze through.
**WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD**
The thing that perhaps bothered me most was the fact that Jude got together with Lowell at the end. Um..what? Where the hell did that come from? He was described as this old, rotund man who smelled foul and was dirty and lived in a dirty house. This bothered me immensely.
This is not your typical thriller, which would start with a body and quickly move forward. It was slower paced, but intriguing nonetheless, and I'm glad I stuck through it to the end. Loved it!
