I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
The Couple Next Door - Shari Lapena

Anne and Marco have gone next door for dinner, leaving their young baby at home by herself, because the neighbours don't like babies. Despite a baby monitor and regular checks, the unthinkable happens. A book where everyone has secrets. The writing was stilted and as for that last chapter?? There were no likeable characters, no one to care about or root for. The idea for the plot was a good one even though it was just a bit far fetched! No doubt other readers will love this book. This is a debut so it will be interesting to see what the author does next.
