NetGalley Review - The Couple Next Door

The Couple Next Door - Shari Lapena

This is a great psychological mystery thriller that keeps you guessing from the moment a couple return home from an evening at their next door neighbour's house, to discover their baby has gone missing.


Tense beginning, and even though I was sure I knew who took the baby, this story taught me that people aren’t always what they seem, and threw me off track on more than one occasion. In fact, I think I suspected nearly every character at one point of another.


Sometimes I can be disappointed by endings of books that are so good throughout that story, but I loved this ending. If I’m honest, it left me feeling rather shocked and a little bit sick. I was going to go to sleep once I finished this book last night, but had to start another book to take my mind off the ending.


I would like to thank Random House UK, Transworld Publishers, for allowing me a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
