The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

Released August 23, 2016

The lowdown from Goodreads

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?

This book was nuts. I burned through it in 2 days & it held my attention & kept me guessing. The ending- WHAT, talk about a cliffhanger. My main issue with this story was believing it. There’s a kidnapped baby, a suspicious set of neighbors, money troubles, a lackadaisical police department & bizarre family dynamic. It turned out to be a little bit more Lifetime movie than 48 hours type of mystery for me. It was hard to keep track of all the twists & turns & who knew what. That being said, I did enjoy it, but I was glad I got it from the library instead of buying it in hardcover.

I feel like everyone has read this. What are your thoughts?
