‘Why would you run scared from a happy home?
You’re waiting for your beloved husband to get home from work. You’re making dinner, looking forward to hearing about his day.
That’s the last thing you remember.
You wake up in hospital, with no idea how you got there. They tell you that you were in an accident; you lost control of your car whilst driving in a dangerous part of town. The police suspect you were up to no good. But your husband refuses to believe it. Your best friend is not so sure. And even you font know what to believe.’
I recently read a book called the couple next door which was also written by Shari Lapena, so when I saw this it was a must have. I was not left disappointed. From start to finish I was engaged and found myself constantly trying to guess what was going to happen next. I couldn’t put it down.
Karen and tom have been happily married for two years, when one night his wife has an accident which changes everything. When Karen comes round she has amnesia, she can’t remember why she was where she was. She’s found in an area that she would never normally venture out which is the first clue, that something must have been very wrong.
When a body is discovered close by to where Karen had her accident, questions are asked all round. With all fingers pointing at Karen she find herself in a very difficult position. Karen begins to wonder who she can trust and who really does trust her. We see this couple go through so many emotions, just unearth more old secrets.
As these secrets come to light the more pressure is added to Karen and Tom. The neighbour, Bridget, acts like she is Karen’s friend. She supports her but she does also have an ulterior motive. Bridget always seems to be available at the right time and has came to the rescue many times.
As Karen melts down Bridget steps in.
I have tried my best not to give much away just the part that already explain themselves or piece together who is who. This really kept me guessing the whole way through I couldn’t wait to get home and start it again.
I would recommend this book to anyone who like twisted thrillers, that keep you guessing until the end. It’s one of them where, everyone’s’ background has been in the making of them as a person. Yet sometimes this can also be there biggest undoing.
Enjoy this read guys!
Thanks for reading
