38 BLB Book Tours review: townhouse by Brian Rowe

“We're just being neighborly. Everybody's a neighbor.” - Larry Green

Sara Crimson finds herself pregnant and moving in with the baby's father Max Pharaoh. aside from struggling with her latest WIP and facing the ups and downs of a first pregnancy, Sara believes something is very wrong with her new home and neighbors. when people start disappearing, nothing could be further from the truth.
this novel is a creepy look into what happens to good people who happen to be in a wrong place at the right time. all of the characters are well fleshed out and the setting is eerie enough to draw goosebumps as the story unfolds.
i like how Sara is portrayed as a young woman facing an uncertain future with a man she hardly knows. Max appears to be dorky and sometimes insensitive to her but he is really a good person, sincerely loves Sara and looks forward to being a dad. the neighbors are described well. their distinct personalities and habits contribute to the forbidding atmosphere and paranoia that Sarah feels. my favorite is Cory, a kid who befriends Sara and becomes her ally.
readers who are a little faint of heart but still enjoy a good fright might find some scenes gross so be forewarned.
author Brian Rowe has definitely kept me reading (and guessing!) way past my bedtime and it was worth it!

*Townhouse is available at Amazon(paperback, Kindle), Barnes and Noble and CreateSpace
