It all started at a dinner party. . .
A domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors—a twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives. . .
Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all—a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night, when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately lands on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.
Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they've kept for years.
What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family—a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.

Had to suspend some reality, but have to say I enjoyed the book and it held my interest til the somewhat odd ending. No spoiler alert.
I would recommend this book for suspense lovers.
The Couple Next Door
Awesome! This is a great thriller! I read this in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. All the characters are interesting, especially Anne and Marco. I retold the story line to someone and we loved thinking up alternative endings. I'm so happy Anne's mother could help the detective, but wonder what took so long. A lot of suffering could have been avoided if truth and honesty had replaced deception and fear! This book brings serious problems like dissociation, bullying, postpartum depression, greed, class differences, and sociopathic behaviors to one set of victims of evil acts! It's almost too much with surprising twists and turns, but still couldn't stop reading! Bravo!

Page turner for SURE! So many twist & turns…. Ending a little disappointing.
