The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It all started at a dinner party. . .
domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently
friendly neighbors--a twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and
the secrets between husbands and wives. . .
Anne and Marco
Conti seem to have it all--a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and
their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night when they are at a dinner
party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately
focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.
the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened
unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding
something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping
secrets, secrets they've kept for years.
What follows is the
nerve-racking unraveling of a family--a chilling tale of deception,
duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the
final shocking twist.
I read this in one sitting wanting to know what had happened to baby Cora. Not sure I'd recommend it to anyone pregnant or a new Mum as it's about one of your worst nightmares - your child going missing, abducted in the night when you took your eye off the ball in the worst possible way.
There were several twists and some of the characters were definitely not nice people but it was a page turner for me. Although I didn't like the ending.
