Book Review: The Novel “The Couple Next Door”

If you’re in the mood for a spine-tingling, page-turner of a book, then “The Couple Next Door” is definitely one you won’t want to miss. This gripping domestic suspense novel, written by the bestselling author of “Not a Happy Family”, will keep you on the edge of your seat from the first page to the last.

The story follows Anne and Marco Conti, who appear to have it all. They have a beautiful home, a thriving relationship, and a new baby named Cora. But their happy lives are shattered one night when they attend a dinner party at their neighbors’ house. When they return home, they discover that their daughter has been kidnapped. The couple becomes the prime suspects in the investigation, and Detective Rasbach is convinced that they are hiding something.

The suspenseful plot of “The Couple Next Door” is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end. Author Shari Lapena has a talent for creating complex characters who are both likable and flawed. Anne and Marco may seem like the perfect couple, but as the story progresses, we learn that they are keeping secrets from each other. These secrets slowly unravel as the investigation into Cora’s disappearance intensifies.

One of the strengths of this book is the way it explores the theme of trust. Anne and Marco have to navigate their own suspicions and doubts about each other as they try to find their daughter. The idea of not knowing who to trust is a recurring motif throughout the book, as the investigation uncovers unexpected connections and hidden agendas between the various characters.

Another notable aspect of “The Couple Next Door” is the pacing of the story. The author has a knack for keeping the reader engaged with short chapters and a constantly evolving plot. The tension ramps up quickly and never lets up, making this a perfect book to read in one sitting.

But don’t let the intensity fool you—there are moments of humor and levity to balance out the darker elements of the story. Lapena has a talent for injecting dark humor into her writing, which adds a touch of personality and charm to the otherwise bleak subject matter.

Overall, “The Couple Next Door” is a thrilling read that is sure to keep you up late at night. If you’re a fan of suspenseful page-turners, you won’t want to miss this one.
