REVIEW: The Couple Next Door – Shari Lapena

Author: Shari Lapena
Rating: ★★★★★

ARC received through Penguin Random House First to Read. 

I love a good thriller, and that’s exactly what this is. I was hooked from the first page and it kept my attention until the last. At first I was apprehensive about going into this, thinking I had read it all before and the plot would be similar, if not the same, to other thrillers I’ve read. Thankfully, The Couple Next Door was refreshingly different, but it still kept me surprised and guessing until the very end. The writing is very well-done and all of the characters are interesting and complex. It was hard to put this book down because I was itching to know what really happened! Even as the book comes to a close, and you think everything is figured out, Lapena throws a curveball. I rated this one star higher just for the last couple of pages alone. The Couple Next Door was a fun, gripping, and unputdownable book that I can’t wait for others to read!
