The annual Halloween block party is the pinnacle of the year on idyllic suburban cul-de-sac Ivy Woods Drive. An influential group of neighborhood moms—known as the Ivy Five—plans the event for months. Except the Ivy Five has been four for a long time. When a new mother moves to town, eager to fit in, the moms see it as an opportunity to make the group whole again. This year’s block party should be the best yet.

As secrets seep out and the threats intensify, the Ivy Five must sort the loyal from the disloyal, the good from the bad. They’ll do anything to protect their families. But when a twisted plot is revealed, with dangerous consequences, their steady foundation begins to crumble, leaving only one certainty: after this year’s block party, Ivy Woods Drive will never be the same. From award-winning author Tara Laskowski, The Mother Next Door is an atmospheric novel of suspense in which the strive for perfection ends in murder…

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If the women of Big Little Lies were the moms of East Coast high schoolers, they’d be right at home in this witty, wicked thriller packed with hidden agendas, juicy secrets, and pitch-perfect satire of the suburban dream.” Andrea Bartz, author of The Herd
“Trust no one, absolutely no one while reading The Mother Next Door because everyone has secrets, all of them are liars, and everybody has at least one thing to lose. Laskowski’s brilliantly paced tale is as compelling as it is twisted.” Hannah Mary McKinnon, author of Sister Dear
“Delicious—I couldn’t put it down.” Alison Gaylin, Edgar Award–winning author
