The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena


The Couple Next DoorIf you enjoy thrillers with lots of twists and turns then you must read this book.
It was a slow starter for me, but once I'd got into it I found it almost impossible to put down. 


Marco and Anne are out one evening for their neighbours birthday, let down by the babysitter they've left their six month old daughter alone. After all they are only next door and are going home to check on her every half hour so what could go wrong? The unthinkable happens and when they return in the early hours she's gone and there's no sign of where she is or what has happened. The story concentrates on Marco and Anne along with her wealthy parents and neighbours Cynthia and Graham, it's up to detective Rasbach to get to the bottom of the mystery and get baby Cora home safely. There are lots of secrets in the family and The Couple Next Door is a book that will keep you guessing until the very end.

Thanks to Netgalley and Transworld Publishers for a copy in return for an honest review.
