The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena
Every month a high holds report is run at the Haliburton County Public Library. If the ration of holds to copies held is higher than our limit, more copies are ordered to ensure good service to our patrons. September’s high holds list includes the title The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena.
Described as a “twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives”, this novel tells the story of Anne and Marco Conti, who 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 focuses on the parents. 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.
The Haliburton County Public Library has more than one copy of The Couple Next Door – place your hold in branch or through the library website www.haliburtonlibrary.ca.
