The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

Reviewed by Emily Terasa (Library Staff)

I know, I know; there have been many suspense novels, involving a husband and wife, which have graced the bestseller shelves these past few years. They often involve either one or both spouses having secrets, sometimes a kidnapping is involved, maybe even murder. After a while, they all kind of seem the same. So when The Couple Next Door came across my desk, I did not have high expectations. But I was wrong.

Anne and Marco seem to have it all, including a wonderful baby, Cora. But one night when at a dinner party next door, their baby goes missing. What follows is many twists and turns, and you don’t really know who to believe.

I thought I had it all figured out, and while some of the plot I figured out right away, there was a lot that I did not figure out. And make sure to read to the very end of the book, because there is a final shocking twist on the last page.
