The Couple Next Door

51FGUeQyc4L._SX318_BO1,204,203,200_.jpgLooking for a quick, engaging, suspenseful, and trashy read? The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena is it. Drawing you in immediately, Lapena keeps you guessing. Anne and Marco’s babysitter cancels at the last minute, but they decide to go next door to a dinner party anyway, bringing the baby monitor and checking on Cora, their non-mobile six-month old, every 30 minutes. And, of course, when they return home from their evening at 1:30am, the front door is open and the baby is missing. Blame abounds and the suspense keeps you reading. This is an easy and satisfying read, especially if you aren’t expecting much and want a good mystery.
