The Couple Next Door

by Shari Lapena

Quick take

The plot unfolds at such a dizzying pace, I didn't have time to form my own theories. I just held on tight and enjoyed the ride!

Why I love it

Do you have neighbors? Have they ever invited you to a dinner party?

Anne and Marco Conti are a seemingly normal couple: He's a successful businessman, she's a new stay-at-home mom. Together they are raising their baby, Cora, in an affluent neighborhood in upstate New York. They seem to have it all. That is, until their next door neighbors invite them over for dinner...

Drinking occurs. Flirting...
