Elena Montgomery, an elderly victim of fibromyalgia, has two main loves in her life: Brian, her attractive and hard-working son; and Jill Stevens, her caring friend and next door neighbor. When Brian and Jill meet for the first time, they have a chemistry that no one can deny. Although Jill finds herself wanting to get closer to Brian, she believes she can’t. Being hurt in the past, she vows to remain single the rest of her life, thinking it’s better not to love than to love and get burned. Brian, on the other hand, wants to get to the bottom of her fears and show her that not all men are the same. He is determined to win her trust, her heart and her hand in marriage. Through pain, passion and pursuit, will Brian be able to prove to Jill what true love is all about? 


Once Frances realized she wanted to make her first book an actual series of books, she immediately knew what the second story would be about. Though everything is completely fictional, a lot of her scenery and ideas on character development are from when she lived in the small town of Holland, Michigan. She, too, had a next door neighbor that had a son who would help out quite a bit. It was easy to imagine someone falling in love with him, and thus, Next Door Neighbors was started.
