My First Book Review you guys! Hope you enjoy!! *No Spoilers!*

Genre-Fiction, Suspense, Thriller

You think you know, but you have no idea. Everyone has secrets! You do, your neighbor does. This book had me intrigued, turning pages and staying up past my bedtime often.

Click here to go to Goodreads description: The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena  

Blurb from– “Fast-paced and addictive, THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR announces a major new talent in thriller writing.
You never know what’s happening on the other side of the wall.
Your neighbour told you that she didn’t want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn’t stand her crying….”

So, the new mom (Anne) and dad (Marco) decide to go to the dinner party next door, even though their babysitter cancelled at the last minute. But Marco ensures Anne the baby will be fine. They have the monitor, they check on her every half hour and they’re right next door. They’re at the dinner party. Marco is drinking and having fun. Anne is not. She wants to leave…. Then the unthinkable happens!!! Gasp!  Read and find out….

I love to read. But lately, I’ve been picking books that have just been meh. I read them. But don’t really enjoy them. So, we were at a bookstore a couple weeks ago and I got “The Couple Next Door”. I started it at the airport on the first day of our vacation.

I didn’t read a whole lot on vacay, unfortunately. See why here…

I would definitely recommend this book to anyone interested. Some of what happens can seem a little far fetched, but I still enjoyed reading. It kept my interest throughout. I had some idea of what was going to happen, but other times I was like whaaat? And seriously, the last page… I think I gasped. Wow, you guys. Just. Wow. Go get this book and read it!
