Review: A Stranger in the House

41-r4fukyqlIn this neighborhood, danger lies close to home. A domestic thriller packed full of secrets, and a twisty story that never stops—from the bestselling author of The Couple Next Door

He looks at her, concerned. “How do you feel?” She wants to say, Terrified. Instead, she says, with a faint smile, “Glad to be home.”

I liked this book better than The Couple Next Door although this book is quite predictable. I have figured what went down not long after the characters involved got introduced.

The characters were not as interesting. It took some time before I got interested in continuing. The story went very slowly. I did not feel the adrenaline rush which is normally the sign of my being interested to push through the chapters.

I love how Detective Rasbach is a recurring character in Shari’s books. I hope he gets to have his own story. He is one of the reasons to like the author’s books. Rasbach is sharp and direct to the point. I don’t like how some police characters beat around the bush. Glad this one doesn’t.

Anyway, I give this book 3 solid stars.

    I have to agree with you on this. I read this last year and it just wasn’t that interesting. I thought it read quickly enough, but it was super predictable and I wasn’t all that interested in the plot. I’m glad you moderately enjoyed it though, haha!
