The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena is one of the best books I have read in a while. I finished the book within three days of starting it. It’s thrilling, suspenseful, and exciting! The beginning starts with a scene at the neighbors house. Anne and Marco are celebrating a birthday with the couple next door; Cynthia and Graham. Anne and Marco have a sixth month old daughter, Cora, whose babysitter canceled last minute. Marco convinced Anne it would be okay to leave Cora sleeping at home while they were next door. They had their baby monitor on, and checked on her every thirty minutes. The last check on Cora was at 12:30am, and they arrived home within an hour after that. When they got home the front door was unlocked, and Cora was no where to be found! The book takes you through a mysterious adventure trying to figure out what happened to Cora, and who took her. Will they ever get their daughter back? The story keeps you on the edge of your seat, never allowing you to put the book down. There are so many twists and turns. The book is filled with lies and betrayal that you never see coming. Even when you think you have it figured out, the story changes! It’s exciting, and such a fun read.
