The Couple Next Door Reviews
One star is for me because I finished it. One more star because the author came up with some good character names. Cora Conti, Cynthia Stillwell, Detective Rasbach I'm looking at you.
Well, that's about all the nice nice I can make.
I can't get past the clunky, amateurish writing! If I heard "Marco said" "Anne replied" "Cynthia stated" ONE MORE TIME....oh my gosh. If you, as an author, are going to write a book that is almost entirely dialogue, wouldn't you make sure you were a damn fine dialogue ...more
It all started with a “what were you thinking?” moment! Then rapidly morphs into a parent’s worst nightmare.
Anne and Marco have a dinner party to attend next door when the babysitter cancels at the last moment. Of course, being responsible parents, they have no choice but to cancel dinner. Right? Well...no! They make the unbelievably foolish decision to still attend. Their genius solution? Simply leave their 6 month baby home alone and just take the baby monitor! What!!?😳

A baby is kidnapped while the parents are next door.
It’s a captivating story, I’ll admit. At first, at least. Then, it becomes too convoluted to keep its realism.
So the story isn’t bad per se. If you don’t mind crazy, nefarious scenarios with outcomes that lead to more crazy, nefarious scenarios, you might just love this.
I couldn’t because it didn’t sound right to me. Especially not the ending. What a stupid one. The character would never have done such a thing. Not af ...more
Este libro me ha FLIPADO. Increíble. Hacía tiempo que no me enganchaba tanto a una lectura.
Schemes, lies, deceit, despair, and many many stupid decisions!
This is a fast-paced, page-turner that managed to hook me up from beginning to the bloody end.
The plot is well-written and the characters are interesting enough. In order words, they make such stupid mistakes, mostly out of despair and foolishness, to the point where it verges towards the comical. Throughout most of the book, I kept switching between feeling sorry and distressed and just being amused.
There were many twist and turns, ...more
I never read drama like this before
Was almost to be worst book of 2017
Dense particles of deception are scattered in every nook and cranny. What you think that you see with your own eyes is not necessarily what you see.
Anne and Marco Conti must really have an intense thing for dinner parties. Marco talks Anne into leaving their newborn infant next door with a faulty baby monitor. They will take turns checking on her every 30 minutes. Sounds like a great plan, huh?
Our model parents have also taken to tipping back on the wine goblets, too. Not a sober soul in sight. ...more
The first 75% of the book was terrific--lots of twists and turns, well-paced, interesting character development and relationships, I was eager to return to my audiobook every time I was away from it. I also loved that contrary to most thrillers that save the big reveal for the end, in this book, you find out who kidnapped the baby halfway through the book--so you get to watch everyone scramble and unravel from there on out. I liked it so much that I was mentally composing my 4-star revi ...more
