Welcome to another Waiting on Wednesday event, hosted by Jill, at Breaking the Spine.

Every week, we gather around the blogosphere and search out the upcoming book releases, sharing our thoughts and blurbs.   Today’s featured book will be released on July 5, 2016, and is the newest offering from Sarah Pekkanen, whose books I have enjoyed.  The Perfect Neighbors takes us into the homes of an idyllic suburban neighborhood where we discover the burning secrets hiding just below the surface.






Synopsis:  Bucolic Newport Cove, where spontaneous block parties occur on balmy nights and all of the streets are named for flowers, is proud of its distinction of being named one the top twenty safest neighborhoods in the US. It’s also one of the most secret-filled.

Kellie Scott has just returned to work after a decade of being a stay-at-home mom. She’s adjusting to high heels, scrambling to cook dinner for her family after a day at the office—and soaking in the dangerous attention of a very handsome, very married male colleague. Kellie’s neighbor Susan Barrett begins every day with fresh resolutions: she won’t eat any carbs, she’ll go to bed at a reasonable hour, and she’ll stop stalking her ex-husband and his new girlfriend. Gigi Kennedy seems to have it all together—except her teenage daughter has turned into a hostile stranger and her husband is running for Congress, which means her old skeletons are in danger of being brought into the light.

Then a new family moves to this quiet, tree-lined cul-de-sac. Tessa Campbell seems friendly enough to the other mothers, if a bit reserved. Then the neighbors notice that no one is ever invited to Tessa’s house. And soon, it becomes clear that Tessa is hiding the biggest secret of all.


I am very excited about getting my hands on this one…and I haven’t found an ARC anywhere yet…but one way or another, I will read this one!  What are you anticipating?



    • I’ve only read three of them: The Opposite of Me, Things You Won’t Say, and Catching Air. All good…although I am very late to the party, having only discovered this author in recent years. Thanks for stopping by, Kay.


  1. I think I got my ARC from Netgalley – have you checked there? I started this one last night! I’m very intrigued so far. Just trying to get used to all the names and characters right now. This is my first book by this author.


  2. I’ve read 5 of her books. I can’t wait for her newest, Joy Fielding’s newest, T greenwoods newest and Amy Hatvany also has a new one coming out this year…..


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
