I usually read/listen to thrillers, mysteries, psychological thrillers, etc. and decided to give "The Couple Next Door" by Shari Lapena a try. I was disappointed because the audiobook was slow to start, slow in the middle and finished up dragging. I wouldn't recommend this read to anyone.

Very engaging story with lots of twists. Audio was narrated by Kirsten Potter, who did a wonderful job of creating tension in the story line. Highly recommended for anyone that enjoys a fast paced thriller with lots of surprises!

I was a bit disappointed with the story as I did not find it a particularly gripping suspense novel.

Fantastic narrator/reader. This was an ever changing story and just when you think you can solve the mystery the plot changes. Recommend this audiobook.

Very interesting audio book. The readers were excellent. Story line could not be predicted and kept you in suspense. Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Recommend listening to the audio book you will enjoy it too.
