"Good Neighbors" by Sarah Langan

Think "Big Little Lies" -- if reimagined by Shirley Jackson ...

From three-time Bram Stoker-Award-winning novelist Sarah Langan comes a propulsive literary suburban noir set in near-future America during the hottest summer on record.  Maple Street has a neighborly cul-de-sac, where a terrible secret tears a rift between two misfit moms who were once best friends.  When innocent Shelly Schroeder falls down a sinkhole, it's one mom's word against the other's, in a court of public opinion that can end only in blood.
