Next Door (A Chloe Fine Psychological Suspense Mystery—Book 1) Kindle Edition
--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos
NEXT DOOR (A Chloe Fine Mystery) is book #1 in a new psychological suspense series by bestselling author Blake Pierce, whose #1 bestseller Once Gone (Book #1) (a free download) has received over 1,000 five star reviews.
FBI Evidence Response Team intern Chloe Fine, 27, finds herself forced to confront her own dark past when her troubled twin sister needs her help—and when a body turns up dead in her small, suburban town.
Chloe feels life is finally perfect as she moves back into her home town, and into a new house with her fiancé. Her career with the FBI looks promising, and her wedding is on the horizon.
But, she learns, all is not as it seems in suburbia. Chloe begins to see the underside—the gossip, the secrets, the lies—and she finds herself haunted by her own demons: her mother’s mysterious death when she was 10, and her father’s imprisonment.
And when a fresh body is found, Chloe soon realizes that her past, and this small town, might hold the key to solving both.
An emotionally wrought psychological suspense with layered characters, small-town ambiance and heart-pounding suspense, NEXT DOOR is book #1 in a riveting new series that will leave you turning pages late into the night.
Book #2 in the CHLOE FINE series is also now available!

This author has published dozens of books and has a 4 star meta review score. This book has mainly positive reviews and I just don't see how this is possible if these reviewers actually read the same book I did.
I wanted to abandon Next Door many times but I persevered because sometimes the end of a novel brings everything together and balances out a weak beginning. Unfortunately not this time. It's touted as a psychological suspense thriller but I could not, in good faith, apply any of those three monikers to this book. I couldn't call it a crime procedural either, as this would imply the author did some basic research into FBI/ police procedures. If the author wanted to cut corners, she could just read some other authors who have bothered with their due diligence, or maybe even just watch some criminal investigation TV shows...
Spelling and grammar are particular bugbears for me with respect to self-published authors and misspelled words / incorrect grammar can drive me crazy. I gave this book its only star because the spelling was surprisingly on point. I recall a couple of typos but nothing stood out. The punctuation, particularly the placement of commas, wasn't so tight, but it was still readable.
The other issue of note for me has nothing to do with the storyline but did almost make me stop reading: at the end of each of the first few chapters, there's an extra page inserted with an advert and link to buy the next book in the series. At first I thought it was a mistake but it kept happening. If I like an author, I'm perfectly capable of finding more of their work under my own steam. I remember thinking that if it happened one more time then I was done. I actually wish it had because I would have moved on and not wasted any more of my time.
Based on my experience here, I'll give this author a wide berth. I'd like to know if she writes under any other pseudonyms so I can dodge those too.
I loved the relationship between the sisters was complex, and how different the were. One an agent in training. The other a bar attendant. The novel takes many twists and turns, before the amazing ending. I see his previous lead character, was a male and book 1 is for free. Was a best seller. I am about to start book 2. Nothing like a bit of psychological mystery, it’s probably the genre I prefer in movies. A good story. Told well.
A quick and easy to read crime novel, I did enjoy it, but I think I will find it to be forgettable. It's an okay read for a few hours on a quiet weekend, but honestly I can't see myself picking up the rest of the series.
Chloe is an FBI agent in training, if her sister was a suspect in a murder case, she wouldn't have any involvement in the case. Plus the murder should be a police matter.
The plot didn't gel together, and it all had to do with the murder of the sister's mother when they were 10.

A couple of formatting problems- first chapter- oh and either make Chloe's mentor- green or greene. Name mistake all through story.
Forgive me for being critical- I’m a writer of kids books and my critical eye sees things????
Anyway, I will definitely read more of Blake Pierce's stories.
All the best from Derry.
