A friend of mine loaned me this book and it turned out to be the perfect purse companion for my recent flight and trip.
This psychological thriller is Shari Lapena’s debut novel and a very engaging, suspenseful quick read. The story is a compulsive page turner.
The Couple Next Door asks readers the question: How well do you know your friends and family?
It all started at a dinner party. . .
Anne and Marco Conti are a young couple with friendly neighbors, a beautiful baby girl, and a seemingly perfect life. When the couple are invited to a dinner party at the neighbors and the babysitter cancels, they go anyways, taking along a monitor and taking turns checking on the baby every half hour. Of course, we all know where this bad decision is going…the unthinkable happens: their baby is kidnapped. What follows is a roller-coaster ride of deceit, betrayal, and family secrets.
This book is filled with emotion and readers will find themselves drawn deeper and deeper into the secrets of the Conti family.
An unnerving plot, characters you can’t trust, and a shocking ending.
