Maggie Finley has returned with her husband from the big city to her Wisconsin hometown, where she reunites with her best friend and awaits the any-minute-now birth of her baby. She's determined to create a safe haven on Hemlock Road, a neighborhood that has always meant security, community, and love. One way to do that: resurrect the defunct Neighborhood Watch program.

The Watch folks are mostly concerned with dog poop and litterbugs. But Maggie's done some digging and discovered a potential threat living just around the corner-a threat that must be eradicated. And the more Maggie tries to take control, the more out of control she gets...

About the Author:

Ann Wertz Garvin worked as a registered nurse while finishing her doctorate in exercise psychology from the University of Wisconsin–Madison. She is a professor of health and nutrition at the University of Wisconsin–Whitewater. Additionally, she teaches creative writing in the Masters of Fine Arts program at Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, New Hampshire. She is the author of one previous novel, On Maggie’s Watch. She lives in Wisconsin.

From Booklist:

Maggie Finley is a woman at loose ends. Having suffered through the birth of a stillborn daughter, Maggie is pregnant again. As part of her desperate search for security and stability, she and her husband have moved to her Wisconsin hometown, where Maggie restarts the long-defunct Neighborhood Watch program. As Maggie gets closer to her due date, her focus on safety and perceived threats increases, as does her already neurotic behavior. One of these perceived threats is a handsome new male friend, another threat is a mysterious sex offender in the neighborhood. A late plot twist and Maggie’s psychological makeup are hardly subtle, but the book remains compelling because it touches on so many issues relevant to modern parenting and suburban life. Although there are a few wacky-neighbor incidents, for the most part, this debut novel remains tightly focused on Maggie’s unraveling and reconnecting. An included reader’s guide makes the book a perfect fit for suburban reading groups. --Marta Segal Block
