Strange Neighbors by Ashlyn Chase
Published: June 1 by Sourcebooks Casablanca
Summary: (From Amazon) When nurse Merry MacKenzie rents an apartment in a historic Boston home, she's taken with her new landlord, sexy baseball pitcher Jason Falco, and intrigued by the possibility of a ghost on the premises. It doesn't take long to figure out that her neighbors are an odd bunch: a couple of witches who run a phone sex business, several shape-shifters, a werewolf, and a vampire in (of course) the basement. The scariest entity by far is determined reporter Lila Crum, whose pursuit of Jason knows no boundaries. Add in Jason's snoopy and decidedly nonsupernatural aunt and the good-natured fun never stops. Chase (Vampire Vintage) brings on plenty of laughs along with steamy sex scenes as Merry and Jason bewitch each other amid the supernatural mayhem.
Strange Neighbors sounded great and hilarious and promising… but there was this problem that got on my nerves. It had a horrible case of Exterior Monologue. All the characters—except Aunt Dottie, who said everything that came to mind anyway—said way too much. They told perfect strangers things they don't normally say, they're forward with everything, and it's too much.
Also, there seems to be a little too much plot. Jason is a shape-shifter, and a pro athlete, and is her landlord, and thinks she's beautiful. Merry is just out on her own, and looking for a fling, and a nurse, and thinks he's a hottie (which he is, but that's beside the point). Maybe if she was a nurse and he was an athlete, or she was just out of her house and he was her landlord… but mix everything together, and add ghosts and shape-shifters and vampires, and it's just too much. It's called Plot Overkill.
