The Neighbors by Ania Ahlborn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ania Ahlborn yet again produces a "horror-ible" tale involving a very patient serial killer...and Andrew Morrison is next in line.
Andrew is a young man attempting to escape a horrible situation in search of a sitcom family, a home full of love. He had it at a young age but everything fell apart when his father hopped in truck with a strange lady and never, ever returned. In turn, his mother became a raging alcoholic forcing him to be the man of the house. Finally tired of "being the adult", he seeks refuge from a childhood friend, Mickey Fitch, who himself had some terrible life struggles. His friend welcomes him in...but the reception he receives in not quite what he'd expected.
Meanwhile, next door, Andrew gets to know Harlow and Red Ward...the sitcom family with the perfect house he's always sought. As they get to know each other, the Wards treat Andrew like the "son they never had?" and they warn Andrew about his sully roommate. Mickey, however, has some choice words about the Wards as well. Which should he believe? What is really going on? He'll find out soon enough!
