The Couple Next Door Reviews
*Thank you to Netgalley and Random House UK, Transworld Publishing, and also to Shari Lapena for my ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review*
Goodness me, this book was so full of twists and turns, I don't know whether I'm on my head or my heels right now!
Imagine the horror of discovering your 6 month old baby has been abducted from her crib in the early hours of the morning. Imagine also the myriad of emotions you'd experience. Well, that would be bad enough, but what multiplies that horror ...more
Wow! This is one of my favourite reads of 2016 and is long-listed for my Top Ten Books of 2016. This totally took my breath away and from start to finish I was totally lost in this book and the desire to know the truth. I HAD to know the truth. I guessed the ending so many times, should not have bothered, it was brilliant and had so many twists I was feeling motion sickness!
Honestly, check out the blurb:
You never know what's happening on the other side of the wall.
Your neighbour told you that sh ...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
Most of my friends loved this, but I wasn't as wrapt. At all. Yes, very, very edge of your seat worthy reading, but the end result was a little flat for me. As a debut, this was brilliant work and I commend the author for writing a book that most of us just could not put down.
I felt it was a train wreck of completely messy, unscrupulous and totally moral lacking characters! I know we are not meant to always love the characters we read about, but I was eye rolling many times. Marco. What a spinel ...more
Cynthia and Graham invite next door neighbours Anne and Marco to a small dinner party but tell them not to bring their small baby. Cynthia and Graham, themselves childless, are not child-friendly. The pre-arranged babysitter cancels at last minute so Anne and Marco decide, reluctantly. to go anyway, leaving baby Cora alone, taking a baby monitor and agreeing to take turns checking on her every half hour. So far so good.....until....
Anne and Graham return home at one in the morning and to their h ...more
Este libro me ha FLIPADO. Increíble. Hacía tiempo que no me enganchaba tanto a una lectura.

I still haven't listened to very many audiobooks. While I prefer to read on my e-reader or read a book, I really do like having the option to listen to an audiobook now and then. It's a nice change and I can close my eyes (as long as I'm not driving). But I don't close my eyes often as usually it doesn't matter how exciting the audiobook is, I could very well fall asleep.
However, I didn't have that problem with this one. I w ...more
HA! What a wild and "crazy" ride!
Sometimes when I read a crime-thriller, I become bored with the pace or exasperated with the clues and detective types, but not so this time. Each character had their own complex personality, and/or presence here, and there is never a dull moment.
Without giving anything away, I'll just say, be prepared for a shocking crime and horrendous secrets revealed, some of which, you will find terribly disturbing!
I entered this mystery not knowing anything about the plot s...more
