I’m working my way through all the Shari Lapena books:
Things Go Flying (2008)
Happiness Economics (2011)
The Couple Next Door (2016)
A Stranger in the House (2017)
An Unwanted Guest (2018)
Someone We Know (2019)
She’s got a unique style. For this book some are calling it suburban paranoia. Seemingly normal people are capable of extreme things.
A flirtatious, unfaithful wife is brutally murdered in the first chapter.
Suspicion immediately falls on the men in her life, especially those suspected of having extramarital relations with her or her jealous husband.
Meanwhile, two mothers are worried about their teenage sons. One boy has been sneaking into neighbourhood homes and reading the content of their computers. What secrets may he have learned and how will his snooping connect with the plot? Another boy is a drunk. Their two mothers are best friends and support each other in their concerns.
