The Couple Next Door Paperback Amazon £3.85

Your neighbour told you that she didn’t want your six-month-old daughter at the dinner party. Nothing personal, she just couldn’t stand her crying. Your husband said it would be fine. After all, you only live next door. You’ll have the baby monitor and you’ll take it in turns to go back every half hour. Your daughter was sleeping when you checked on her last. But now, as you race up the stairs in your deathly quiet house, your worst fears are realized. She’s gone. You’ve never had to call the police before. But now they’re in your home, and who knows what they’ll find there. What would you be capable of, when pushed past your limit?



How well do we ever know those around us? The Couple Next Door will keep you glued to the pages in search of the answer. Even then you’ll never guess the truth…until it’s too late. I couldn’t put this book down. It really is a page turning suspense. Anne and Marco are invited to a party by their next door neighbour. But Cynthia their neighbour made it clear that she didn’t want any children at the party. It was to be an adult evening party only. The babysitter let Anne and Marco down she couldn’t look after baby Cora. Marco said it would be fine to leave Cora in her crib alone in the house and that they could take it turns and check on Cora every half an hour. Once they both arrive home from the party their precious baby Cora is not in her crib, she has been kidnapped. What type of parents leave their baby alone in the house. At 1.30am Anne and Marco phone the police. As in all situations once the police are involved all the family are questioned including Anne’s parents. It appears that a few adults are hiding a lot of secrets but who? And why? I can’t recommend The Couple Next Door highly enough.
