Synopsis/blurb ....

When Emma and Kip Dupree bought their first home together, they got a lot more than they bargained for. They wanted to get out of the city and get on with their lives on the quiet cul-de-sac. Instead, an object of obsession brings their lives to a screeching halt.

Who is the woman living next door?

Why does she do the curious things she does?

Why do Emma and Kip feel like their lives have been so disrupted?

How do they get her to stop?

The Duprees are only sure about one thing: the social contract must be upheld at all costs.
-----
My take ...

A short book so a short review.

Every homeowner or renter's nightmare - a difficult, irritating, unreasonable neighbor.

Our young couple, Emma and Kip move to, if not the house of their dreams, one which is at least affordable. You buy the house, but you don't buy the neighbors. The old woman next door rebuffs friendly overtures and over the next few months along with her dogs (and the product of their bodily functions), makes life hell for our twosome.

Communication issues, disagreements, outright hostility, escalation allied with a reduction in rational thought and behaviour. The situation spirals out of control. Peace and a sense of tranquility is restored but at a price.

I quite liked this one. It's easy to relate to a difficult and sometimes impossible to resolve situation. I can't imagine being driven to those extremes, but hey who knows what we're all capable of if enough of our buttons are pushed.

I read books as an escape. These days there is nothing but hate and fake news and political crap everytime I turn on the tv or look at social media. This book sounded like a fun short read...again just to escape for an hour or so. What do I find....Trump bashing in a humor/horror book! The only reason I didn't DNF it is because I finish whatever I start. I purchased other books from this author and have reservations if they will ever get read. Wished I had read this one first before buying the others. Label your books political if you want to go there. ( )

I turn to Andersen Prunty for well-written but extremely nasty horror stories; this one certainly fits the bill. The satire is broad and blunt, the characters (antagonists and protagonists both) are thoroughly despicable, and it has a tight, nicely constructed structure. ( )
