Welcome to the quiet neighborhood of Whispering Woods. It’s a lovely place to live…as long as you follow the rules.
Jeanette Singleton is a wife, mother, avid gardener, and also a bit of a serial killer. She doesn’t see it that way, though. For her, it’s a simple matter of following the rules. That isn’t hard for most people. But there are others who bend, twist, and sometimes break the rules in order to get what they want and she can’t have that. Not in her neighborhood.
Jeanette tends to Whispering Woods like she tends to her garden—nurturing it, feeding it, weeding out invasive pests, watching it thrive. It’s what makes her plan so perfect, so foolproof. You see, life requires structure and when it’s compromised, chaos ensues. But Jeanette has found the answer to that problem. A place where evil decomposes and transforms into something useful.
When new neighbors move in, she seizes the opportunity to welcome them. But as her life begins to intertwine with theirs, the lines of good and evil begin to blur. Blind trust is like a parasite and if Jeanette isn’t careful, everything she’s worked so hard to maintain will begin to rot.
I was super excited to read this book! I usually stick to the contemporary romance, so this was a nice change of pace. I have never read anything by Ms Deemer, and I am excited to dig into her other books!!
Jeanette is a little bit of everything and is happy to serve her family. Not having much of a family growing up it’s up to her to mold her loved ones and protection is one of her attributes. Everything was going honkey dory but then the mysterious neighbors moved in and threw a monkey wrench in the façade of perfection.
