READ THE BOOK REVIEW BELOW
Title: The Couple Next Door
Author: Shari Lapena
Publication Date: August 23, 2016
More Story Than One Story Can Handle
There is much going on in Lapena’s suspense debut, The Couple Next Door. The story centers on an infant kidnapping while the parents are attending a dinner party next door. As if that weren’t enough, we have the next door neighbors doing bad and nasty things with a hidden camera. We have two parents with seriously questionable priorities. We have many dubious creatures surrounding these parents. We also have a mother with a horrifying mental disorder, long kept hidden, that appears to have been re-triggered with the stress of both childbirth and her child gone missing.
There are many twists and turns since the police questioning never lets up and the parents, Marco and Anne Conti are their prime suspects. Soon Marco and Anne are pitted against one another as secrets about each of them come to light, ones that they have kept from even each other. They are not the brightest people however they are both under extreme duress.
It is likely that you will figure out the plot twists before the main characters do. The story is an easily followed line however it is less likely that you will figure out just how all of the characters factor in until the end. The plotline was slightly disjointed but I did appreciate the lack of loose ends which is a bust to many similar novels. The ending ties together information revealed in the story that could have gone nowhere. It will throw you for a loop.
Easily a single session read, The Couple Next Door is fully entertaining.
