Praise for The Perfect Neighborhood
"Fresh twists . . . Alterman is off to a promising start."
--Publishers Weekly

"Well written from start to finish . . . perfect for fans of domestic suspense!"
--Manhattan Book Review

"Alterman deftly uses alternating perspectives to show us the building tensions, leading to one surprising twist after another. I couldn't put this down."
--Catherine McKenzie, USA Today bestselling author of Please Join Us and Fractured

"In theory, The Perfect Neighborhood is the ideal place to raise a family. In reality, it's disturbing and completely riveting. Inside every house is another fascinating character, another lie, another betrayal. Reading this book made me feel like I lived in Oak Hill, and I refused to leave until every secret was uncovered."
--Samantha Downing, internationally bestselling author of My Lovely Wife and For Your Own Good.

"In Liz Alterman's debut psychological suspense novel, The Perfect Neighborhood, everybody is gossiping, everybody is watching, but nobody saw a child disappear. I loved reading the way social paranoia took second place to fear as this picture-perfect suburban community dissolved. Alterman dives deep into the emotional secrets of the babysitter, the retired actress, the mother of the missing boy, and all those neighbors in their "fairytale marriages." The combination of super-relatable characters and nearly unbearable suspense made it impossible to stop reading"
--Sarah Warburton, author of You Can Never Tell

"Big Little Lies meets Everything I Never Told You in this wholly propulsive and utterly enthralling neighborhood suspense. With razor-sharp commentary and biting humor, I simultaneously howled with laughter one minute while tearing through the pages, racing toward the entirely shocking conclusion. Liz Alterman is a masterful storyteller and The Perfect Neighborhood is a devour-in-one-sitting read."
--May Cobb, author of The Hunting Wives

"Liz Alterman has crafted a riveting mystery that epitomizes every parent's greatest fear. With characters so compelling and real in both their humanity and flaws, you'll feel certain you've known these people in real life. A page-turning whodunnit that also packs an emotional wallop, if you love Lisa Jewel's dark domestic suspense, don't miss Alterman's captivating new book. This perfect neighborhood is anything but!"
--Rebecca Taylor, award-winning author of The Secret Next Door

"A brilliant snapshot of the cracks in modern, seemingly privileged American suburbia."
--Nina Monroe, author of The Children's Secrets

"Filled with juicy secrets and delicious twists, The Perfect Neighborhood slyly skewers the suburban ideal. Entertaining, relatable, and wise right up until its spot-on punch of an ending, this is a not miss for all fans of domestic suspense."
--L. Alison Heller, author of The Neighbor's Secret
