I’m reviewing The Couple Next Door:
Book Summary from Amazon:
It all started at a dinner party. . .
A domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors—a twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives. . .
Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all—a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.
Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they’ve kept for years.
What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family—a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.
I cannot PUT THIS BOOK DOWN! (But I forced myself to do it just for a little to write this review.)
This is one of those books that pulls you in from the first chapter, and before you know it the sun is setting and you are wondering where the day went!
If you have gotten hooked on true-crime shows like Making a Murderer, I think it is safe to say you will find this book riveting as well. The author uses different viewpoints, so you get to see how both potential suspects and detectives are interpreting the events.
This book came with a letter from the judge, Liberty Hardy, on why she picked this book:
And a Book of the Month bookmark:
Verdict: I’m very pleased with the value of my Book of the Month subscription. The prices are better than Amazon for new hardcover releases, and they always feature a good mix of popular new books. And I love that you can skip any month you aren’t interested in, and you can also buy books from previous months as add-ons for $9.99.
