Summary

When Laura Fry returns to her childhood home to care for her invalid mother, she hopes the writer’s block that has swallowed her writing career will disappear. She doesn’t plan on turning into a “yard girl” but her mother’s long neglected lawn beckons her to return it to the lush and colorful display it had been before her mother’s accident. She also doesn’t plan on making friends with the “nympho lesbian” next door but she finds it impossible not to watch the parade of playmates the neighbor brings to her pool. 

Cassidy Anderson likes pool parties and female company. And while the pool remains the same, the female company changes nearly every weekend. As her mid-40s approach at an alarming speed, she’s still searching for the love of her life. As she finds herself seeking out the company of the cute tomboy next door, she starts to realize that she’s been looking in all the wrong places. Could it possibly be the neighbor who holds the key to her heart?

Great Book

I listened to this book in 2 days. The storyline was good and the characters engaging, I was captivated from beginning to end. The narrator did a great job. Light and fluffy romance that will captivate you from beginning to end.

This book has a nice slow build up to romance with nice erotic moments. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Loved it - as usual

There is a predictably about Gerri Hill’s novels
- that the characters will be thoroughly likeable. The rhythm of her stories is the same and the conclusions are what one expects from a romance novel but I have loved every one of Gerri Hill’s novels because of the gentle humour, the internal and external dialogue and, again, the wonderful characters.

New Favorite

This is my new favorite Gerri Hill. It is very well written and has a slow build up to the budding romance. It felt more realistic than most romances. It made me laugh and smile throughout. The voice actress was great, my only thing was it was sometimes difficult to tell which character was speaking because she didn’t change the inflections much. Other than that, it was great. I highly recommend this one.

Wonderful

There are few writers and narrators that when a book of theirs comes out I get it immediately, Gerri Hill is one of them.
I love this book and I was happy when it came out yesterday. I could not stop listening and Nicol Z did a great job narrating it.
Great story, great characters great book.
It was a long time between this book and the one before it I am waiting for the next one already.

Cute and funny

Super cute and definitely funny. Had me laughing out loud quite a few times. Great characters and side characters too! Also the narrator does a great job and very involved with the story. Sometimes you felt like you were at the dinner table when them lol

Gerri Hill does it again!

I loved this audiobook. the story wasn't too complex, but it was definitely a good listen. I loved both characters (although one of them took longer to like). Gerri Hill writes amazing books and Nicol Zanzarella easily narrates, so you can't be let down with the Neighbor.

Enjoyed it!

I read the book a few years back. As any Gerri Hill fan, I always get her books as soon as they are out. I loved the book when I read it and although I am not a big Nicol Zanzarella fan, I always think her narration is pretty monotone, it's sometimes hard to distinguish the different characters. But I gotta give it to her for this one, she actually did a good job. This audiobook was better than I expected.

What’s up with all the body shaming?

There are so few lesbian romance novels to choose from on Audible Escapes. Gerri Hill is one of the few prolific authors. But her stories always are a bit out of touch. This was a nice story but the body shaming was troublesome.

Narrator was okay, a little too breathy for my taste.

Very pleased

I enjoyed this story and performance immensely. The story was smooth and not overly dramatic. The main characters are super likable and relatable. Listened to it all in one day! Had a few laughs and just really enjoyed this purchase. I’ve listened to this narrator before, too. Very talented storyteller. #witty #feelgood #lgbtqia #lesbian #romance #summer #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Excellent Audio!

I really enjoyed The Neighbor by Gerri Hill. I did have to struggle past Cassidy being "the mean girl" in the beginning. I am not comfortable with it. But of course the neighbors move beyond that. Nicol Zanzarella does an excellent job with the narration.

I love this author/narrator pairing!

Overall, great book! I've been. Gerri Hill fan for a very long time and always enjoy her books! The characters were funny and had depth, along with great passion and interaction with each other. I really liked the two of them and found myself smiling at how cute they were together. GH def did not disappoint on this one! Keep them coming!
