Abstract:

"On a sunny block inside the exclusive neighborhood of Venetian Vistas, Rory Fallon is walking his dog when he notices activity at the house next door. New neighbors are moving in, namely the Hardens - Austin and his wife, Meg, along with their two kids. Rory introduces himself, and can't help but notice how intrigued Austin is when it's mentioned just who Rory lives with: his partner of many years, handsome Bruno Griffin.

Indeed, the last thing Austin expected in this small Florida enclave was having a gay couple for neighbors."

"But life has more surprises in store, for both Rory and Bruno, and Austin and Meg. As the two couples form a strange, sometimes symbiotic relationship, questions arise about love and about marriage, and how their own roles help define - and alter - the people around them.

Jay Quinn's The Good Neighbor not only reflects our changing social fabric, but sheds light on the fact that fences exist for a reason, and that when you cross over them the consequences can often have confounding results."--Jacket.
