The Good Neighbors : Good neighbors invite you over for dinner, bring you baked goods to welcome you to the neighborhood, and wave hello at the mailbox.
Good neighbors do not destroy your life.
When Bryant and Harper Page move to Lancaster Mills, their first encounter with their new neighbors—Jason and Tori Fuller: beautiful, strange, and terrifying—is anything but a warm welcome. Despite their hesitations, the Pages are intrigued by the people they now share a street with. As their curiosity gets the best of them, they discover that there’s much more to the Fullers than meets the eye. Their new neighbors have secrets, that much is obvious, but just how dangerous could they be?
With two haunting shadows lingering over their house and lives, the Pages’ relationship is tested in every way. What exactly makes a good neighbor? And what makes a good neighbor bad?
“And you?” Jason asked, looking at her now, his intense gaze causing her to blush.
“I’m, um, I…well, I work at the hospital.”
“You do?” Tori spoke up, staring at her intently. “I guess we’ll be seeing each other around, then. I’m a plastic surgeon.” Of course. “What do you do?”
“Reception,” Harper answered, her voice squeaking slightly. She had no reason to feel ashamed of her job. She’d gone to college and gotten her degree in healthcare administration. Now it was just a matter of working her way up. She couldn’t help it that her husband’s first job offer came from a podunk town that’s closest hospital was over a half-hour from their new home.
“Oh, well that’s okay,” Tori said, her tone patronizing as if she were talking to a child.
“I know it is,” Harper said with a stiff nod.
“Well, anyway,” Jason spoke up, easing the tension. “We wanted to say welcome to the neighborhood. We felt silly coming over without any wine or baked goods or something…so we wanted to see if you two would like to join us for dinner tomorrow night? Our place.”
“Oh, I don’t—” Harper started to object.
“We won’t take no for an answer,” Jason told her, a small smile on his lips.”
