Author of The Couple Next Door, brings another awesome book called A Stranger in the House.
About the book:
Karen Krupp is at home one evening making dinner for Tom, her husband. The next thing she knows she is waking up in a hospital, not able to remember anything. Tom finds out that she rushed out of her house with no purse, keys, or locking the door, and speeding away to a neighborhood that she would never be in.
The police are saying that there is more to the story then just a traffic accident, especially when a body turns up dead in the same area. Who is this man and how is he connected to Karen?
Tom doesn’t want to believe what the police are telling him. His wife doesn’t do these things and he knows Karen the best, right? Or does your best friend know you better?
What do you believe ?
My Book rating: 3 out of 5
What I thought about the book.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS. DO NOT READ PAST HERE!
The book took me quite a long time to get into it.
I felt that it was boring for the first couple of chapters. Then I got to about half way thru the book and I couldn’t put it down.
What was the turning point? I’m not sure, I just got to the point that I didn’t want to put it down.
The book definitely has twists and turns. I had a feeling that she was connected to the death of the man due to her feeling like someone was in the house. It had to be either a family member or a ex-husband. Finding out that it was her ex-husband that she ran away from because he was abusive was what I was expecting. What I wasn’t expecting was to find out that he wasn’t an abusive husband but she had taken him for his money and ran away.
I was thrown when I found out that her best friend was obsessed with Tom. But even more thrown when Brigid wasn’t even the one that killed the man but witnessed Karen killing him. Was that the truth? Did she really remember what was going on or just faked the amnesia? Who killed the man?
But that ending??! She is pregnant?!? What is going to happen now? I was left with so many questions!
By far the book was very good. I wish that I would have been more into it right away and didn’t take reading half the book to start to get interested. I am wondering if she is going to make a sequel? I also felt like the book was rushed at the end. Like the author was throwing in so many different twists that she just ended it.
