The Couple Next Door Reviews

I read this book because everyone was reading it. We’re talking EV.ER.Y.ONE. Think I’m kidding?
Yep. I’m still 30th in line at the non-porny library (and yes I just removed this request – I’m an old lady and forget these things sometimes).
Since this is a mystery you’re going to get an even crappier review than I normally barf out. The basic premise of The Couple Next Door is that Marco and Anne’s babysitter cancelled at the last minu ...more
Wow . . . what was that ending?! OK, let me back up.
There's no denying that this is a compulsive page-turner. At the heart of the story is a frenzied pulse running rampant and it’s addicting. Ending chapters with shocking revelations, casting doubt and making me waver on my belief of who was behind it all, time and time again, was pure magic. I read this book over the course of one day, simply because I couldn’t bear to put it down. I had to know who took baby Cora and WHY.
With that being said, ...more
3.5 Stars. This book turned out just meh for me. I was completely sucked in from the start and then at about the 65 % mark the characters started annoying me and I wasn't thrilled with the ending. Some other people might like this more than I did. I read a lot of psychological thrillers so now very few are 5 Star reads for me.
A special shout out to Kirsten Potter the narrator. She was awesome!!! This is very easy to follow on audio.
HA! What a wild and "crazy" ride!
Sometimes when I read a crime-thriller, I become bored with the pace or exasperated with the clues and detective types, but not so this time. Each character had their own complex personality, and/or presence here, and there is never a dull moment.
Without giving anything away, I'll just say, be prepared for a shocking crime and horrendous secrets revealed, some of which, you will find terribly disturbing!
I entered this mystery not knowing anything about the plot s...more
I've read this book before.
Well, ok, not this book, but I've read many of its fraternal twins, and the gene pool is starting to feel a bit shallow to me.
The Couple Next Door has an interesting hook: a six month old baby disappears from her crib while her parents are next door at a dinner party. It reminded me of the Madeline McCann case, and I was interested to see how the plot would develop. However, reading this book was at times like playing thriller bingo. The couple that seems perfect from ...more
Yes, yes yes yes yes!
I love it when there is a up and coming author who just produces such an amazing book it looks like they have been a best seller for years. I am not kidding, this is truly a remarkable read.
I know us reviewers, we say things like 'twists and turns'
'unputdownable', stayed up all night to read it, but I tell you, its so true.
If you are a passionate reader, and I know that you are because you are on Goodreads writing reviews, then you will certainly understand my gushing on th ...more

I still haven't listened to very many audiobooks. While I prefer to read on my e-reader or read a book, I really do like having the option to listen to an audiobook now and then. It's a nice change and I can close my eyes (as long as I'm not driving). But I don't close my eyes often as usually it doesn't matter how exciting the audiobook is, I could very well fall asleep.
However, I didn't have that problem with this one. I w ...more
Pues oye, lo he disfrutado un montón.
No soy mucho de leer novelas de este género, pero he de decir que cada vez estoy leyendo más y estoy encontrando una vertiente más que interesante que de primeras no era mi favorita. He leído varios comentarios respecto a la voz narrativa, porque no es muy utilizada en este tipo de novela: es en tercera persona, sí, pero narra en presente. La verdad es que yo estoy acostumbrado a leer novelas en presente, aunque en esta ocasión había alguna cosa rara (como si ...more
