Just Read

A Stranger in the House (2017) by Shari Lapena

This is the first book I've finished in 2019. It was nice to read it. The first half was a little intense. Gradually it turned quite interesting. And the ending was amazing.

Story: There is little peace for main characters Karen, husband Tom and neighbour Brigid in this story. Karen crashes a car, claims memory loss and is investigated for murder. Karen express worries about someone beeing in their house uninvited. They don't see anyone. And Brigid who's a friend of Karen shows strange and scary behaviour. Brigid has great interest in her neighbours Karen and Tom. She has a place in her house with view to their house. She has glued herself to this spot! I can imagine her sleeping there. Karen thinks Brigid might be useful in the investigation. At a certain point investigators turn their attention to Brigid too.

The most interesting to me was Brigid's behaviour, the expressed worries about someone entering the house of Tom and Brigid without them knowing it and the ending. Something totally new happened  that showed how much things will change for these three. I loved it! And would like to read something similar.

Have you read this book?


  1. I haven’t heard of this book before, but it sounds like a great thriller. Have you read The Girl on The Train by Paula Hawkins? You might like that. I tend to stick to lighter fiction but The Girl on The Train was quite good. Happy reading! :-) xx
