Summary
Neighborhood tensions reach a breaking point in the finale of New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe's captivating series that sweeps readers back to 1930's Alabama and into the lives of two neighboring couples whose deceitful friendships and imperfect marriages are just the beginning of their troubles...

In this captivating Depression-era set novel by New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe, two couples find their grudges endangering more than their Alabama small town's deceptive peace . . .

When good-time couple Milton and Yvonne Hamilton moved one house over from the respectable-but-restless Odell and Joyce Watson, it was a fast friendship of shared secrets--and secret jealousies and betrayals. Their alliance was bound to crash and burn, but the Hamiltons won't quite let the flame die out, even after scandalous accusations get them arrested...

Odell would do anything to be free of his bootlegging, blackmailing, money extorting neighbors and recover the peaceful--and financially prosperous--life he and Joyce once had. But Milton and Yvonne seem to always bounce back from bad luck, and this time they've returned angrier, and greedier, than ever. Determined to get what Odell "owes" them, the Hamiltons have a big surprise for Joyce too, one that shows how far they will go to get revenge . . .

Now pushed past his breaking point, Odell is sure he's got a foolproof plan to end the scheming once and for all. But it soon spirals into lies, shattering violence, and permanent damage that will roil their tranquil community, and alter his and Joyce's world forever . . .
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Milton and Yvonne realize that it was their neighbor Odell who called the police on them with a trumped-up charge after his wife, Joyce, makes a remark about how the sheriff was called at home. Odell wants to stop paying blackmail to the bootlegging neighbors who learned about his other wife and children, but now Milton and Yvonne are in even more trouble and so they demand even more money from scheming Odell. So he skims money from his in-laws' store, as well as stealing goods, hoping to satisfy everyone. Joyce continues to think her marriage is perfect and makes patronizing comments to Yvonne and Milton. Tired of them both, Milton and Yvonne decide to reveal Odell's other family to Joyce, just as Odell plots to be rid of Milton and Yvonne forever. Monroe brings her exciting Neighbors trilogy (One House Over, 2018; Over the Fence, 2019) to a violent crescendo, and a dramatic and memorable conclusion, as she explores how social tension and conflict complicate jealousy and romance in an African American enclave in a small Alabama town during the Great Depression."
