Got these books from @Savugirl yesterday! Can‘t wait to read them. The paws apparently just had to appear in the picture.
" ‘This is a very difficult letter to write. I hope you will not hate us too much. . . My son broke into your home recently while you were out.‘ “
“In a quiet, leafy suburb in upstate New York, a teenager has been sneaking into houses--and into the owners' computers as well--learning their secrets, and maybe sharing some of them, too.”
This is the second book I have read by Shari Lapena and I really like her style. It was a good neighborhood thriller. I was able to piece together who the killer was and I was quite proud of myself, but I didn't guess all of the little specifics. The book provided a great pool of suspects.
Overall the story was an interesting one...misdirecting the reader like what...and the outcome of the mystery was satisfying, well, satisfying enough anyway. But the very end...the last 5 minutes of the book...what was that? I didn‘t get it. I don‘t know, maybe I missed something...did I miss something…???
This book makes a compelling argument to NOT make friends with your neighbors. I really enjoyed all the twists and turns of this book, the only flaw is that Amanda never emerges as a real person. Her motives, her desires, all are seen through the lens of others. I would have liked a little more about her. Still, a great thriller worth your time! Book 10 of 2021
This was a quick read and a fun murder mystery.
One teenager is breaking and entering into houses, another is excessively drinking. We slowly discover that both of these boys fathers were having an affair with a woman who turns up dead.
Her husband becomes the easiest suspect but what if it‘s not that easy?
Honestly I could have dealt without the epilogue, and this was another book where I unfortunately predicted the ending halfway through.
This was another excellent read, I do enjoy the books written by this author. This worked really well in the audiobook format and was well read. Interestingly plot line and liked the way three were all joined up. Certainly recommended.

It‘s 3 stars for Shari Lapena‘s “Someone We Know”, a story full of secrets, gossip and infidelity. I enjoyed it, but it was an okay read for me and probably not one I‘ll remember long term.
My full review is up on my blog now 📚
Oh, how I love a good “Desperate Housewives” style suburban murder mystery. This book had it all. Some characters that you sympathize with, or could imagine yourself being friends with. Others that annoy you and even some that give you the creeps. Everyone‘s hiding something. Everyone‘s protecting someone. Everyone‘s a suspect.
This was a really quick, easy read. There‘s murder, backstabbing, and too many affairs to follow. I loved every page!
Another solid tale of suspense by Shari Lapena. Not as captivating as The Couple Next Door, but a great tale nonetheless. When a women goes missing, then is subsequently found dead. Everyone is her neighborhood is concerned, gossipy, and guilty? The killer is clearly “Someone We Know,” but which one?
This was a fun listen, although I will admit that the constant drama and the jumping bedmates got somewhat tiresome. I had no idea where the story would end up leading and did change my mind a few different times when it came to trying to figure out who the murderer was. I‘ll definitely be reading (or listening) to more by this author! 🌟🌟🌟
Betrayal, neighbors, panic, and murder. To me, it was like a well-worn soap opera and I figured out part of the ending early on. The only way I could get through it was to listen to the audio at double speed. I will say it‘s quite amusing to listen to melodramatic people at 2x the normal speed.
I am up to page 78 in this book (that is chapter 11) I am loving the dual mysteries within one book that is enjoyable, I am also enjoying that this book takes place across the pond ( in the US) where as Turn of the Key takes place in Scotland and how different these two authors sculpt their mystery! Its been enjoyable.

So i signed up for the Oct 31st Book Swap for #AllHallowsRead but havent gotten an email for who my swap partner is, I'd like to get shopping for my person, has anyone gotten notice for this Swap?
This is my second read from Shari Lapena and I‘ve concluded that I can count on her for engaging, fast-paced thrillers.

I thought I was going to have to wait months for an audiobook copy of this, but I got an alert this morning, while opening up Libby, that I could get a skip the line copy! I didn‘t even know this was possible! Anyone else done this before?
I think this will probably be the last Shari Lapena I read. Her plots are interesting enough, but I‘ve come to feel like her writing style isn‘t up to the caliber of many of my favorite thriller authors. She does a lot of “telling, not showing,” to put it in English teacher terms. So even though this book was a fast read, I know it‘s not going to stay with me.
