My blurb:

Karen Krupp has no idea what happened the night she drove her car into a pole. But what she does know is that the police might figure out more than she bargained for. Will her husband Tom stand by her? And how much should she trust her best friend Brigid?

A Stranger In The House

Your home still isn’t the safe place it should be, in the electrifying new thriller from Shari Lapena, author of the Sunday Times bestseller, The Couple Next Door.

Why would you run scared from a happy home? You’re waiting for your beloved husband to get home work. You’re making dinner, looking forward to hearing about his day. That’s the last thing you remember.

You wake up in hospital, with no idea how you got there. They tell you that you were in an accident; you lost control of your car whilst driving in a dangerous part of town. The police suspect you were up to no good. But your husband refuses to believe it. Your best friend isn’t so sure. And even you don’t know what to believe…

My verdict:

Having read Shari Lapena’s first novel I knew what to expect from her writing. This novel offered twists you would not expect and some you might have guessed. A well written book worth adding to your reading list.
