While wedding planning I started reading this book and let me tell you, it got me second guessing getting married! Just kidding, but this book is so well written that I started double checking that, yes, I do actually know the person I’m going to marry!!
Anne and Marco Conti just had their first child. They are going through a bit of a rough patch since Anne had the baby as she has postpartum depression. When their babysitter cancels at the last minute they decide to still go to their neighbors for the first time in months. They bring the baby monitor along and plan to check on the baby every 30 minutes. After doing as they promised and checking on the baby, they leave their neighbor’s house at 1 AM and arrive home to find an empty crib. When the police arrive, the police immediately suspect Anne and Marco. What could they have gained by hurting their baby? How well do they really know each other? Where is their daughter?
The Couple Next Door is 308 pages long and took me three days to read.
I give this novel a four out of five for it’s intriguing plot and twisty-turny story line! I highly recommend reading this book if you haven’t already!
