Can’t Wait Wednesday – NOSY NEIGHBORS by Freya Sampson


“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  It is a meme that I have  loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is NOSY NEIGHBORS by Freya Sampson. I’ve read two other books from Sampson and I just love how heartwarming her reads are and how she likes to feature a strong sense of community as well as unlikely friendships.

NOSY NEIGHBORS by Freya Sampson

by Berkley

Publication Date:  April 2, 2024



Two neighbors-at-war band together to stop a dangerous criminal in their midst in this enthralling new novel from the USA Today bestselling author of The Lost Ticket.

Twenty-five-year-old Kat Bennett has never felt at home anywhere, and especially not in crumbling Shelley House. According to her neighbors, she’s prickly and unapproachable, but beneath her tough exterior, Kat is plagued by guilt from her past.

Seventy-seven-year-old Dorothy Darling is Shelley House’s longest resident, and if you believe the other tenants, she’s as cantankerous and vindictive as they come. Except there’s a good reason Dorothy spends her days spying on her neighbors—a closely guarded secret that no else knows and the reason Dorothy barely leaves her beloved home.

When their building faces demolition, sworn enemies Kat and Dorothy become unlikely allies in their quest to save their historic home. But when someone starts to play dirty and viciously targets one of the residents, Dorothy and Kat suspect foul play in their community. After the police close the investigation, it’s up to this improbable pair to bring a criminal to justice.

    I love the premise of this one, Suzanne – it’s always fun when characters across the generations end up working together:)). Thank you for sharing.

    I am such a fan of Sampson’s books. This sounds a bit different from the others, but I anticipate it being lots of fun. Hope we both love it

    I have loved each of Freya Sampson’s books so I’ve definitely added this to my want to read list! It sounds like a good story, although I don’t really like crime books. But it is an automatic want to read for me just because she is a lovely author!
