Stranger in the House by Shari LaPena
“Her thoughts speed up and become less rational; her mind makes fantastic leaps. It’s not that things don’t make sense to her when she’s like this – sometimes they make ‘more’ sense. They make sense the way dreams do. It’s only when the dream is over that you see how odd it all was, how it actually didn’t make sense at all”.
Wow! Shari LaPena does it again! She manages to tell the story of a couple who seems to have it all. Two great jobs, a beautiful house in a perfect suburb, and great friends. But, nothing is as it seems. Where does life go wrong for Karen and Tom?
One day, Tom comes home from work and his wife is gone. She didn’t take her keys, her phone, or her wallet and dinner is cooking on the stove. It’s like Karen vanished. After the police show up at his house and tell a story of Karen’s horrible car accident, Tom and Karen’s life will never be the same. Who can they trust? Can they trust each other?
Their neighbor Bridget? Bridget’s husband Bob? This story will take you on a roller coaster adventure. You think you know what happened but I guarentee you don’t!
