The Couple Next Door: Shari Lapena

Synopsis obtained from Good Reads:

Fast-paced and addictive, THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR announces a major new talent in thriller writing.

You never know what’s happening on the other side of the wall.

Your neighbour told you that she didn’t want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn’t stand her crying.

Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you only live next door. You’ll have the baby monitor and you’ll take it in turns to go back every half hour.

Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She’s gone.

You’ve never had to call the police before. But now they’re in your home, and who knows what they’ll find there.

What would you be capable of, when pushed past your limit?

My Review:

This novel was definitely a favourite of mine! It had a lot of twists and turns, and the author kept your interest by changing different perspectives from character to character. The different perspectives as told by the various characters, made it more complicated to figure out what was going on. However, the author managed to have it all tied together once you’ve actually finished reading the novel. I found myself having to read back to see if I had missed an essential part as to why the next chapter was the way it was. A quick read once again, but definitely worth it!
