The Couple Next Door – Shari Lapena – Genre – Psychological Thriller
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: A truly gripping book which I could not put down. A chilling tale of a 6 month old baby girl who gets abducted/kidnapped. Full of twists and secrets and lies – this book captivated me from the first chapter. I would definitely recommend this to others and look forward to reading more from this author. My thanks to NetGalley & Random House UK for the opportunity to read this ARC.
A total sphincter-clencher as we like to say in TBC!
