Book Review: A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena- 5 Stars

Karen is a beautiful housewife who is found in a seedy part of town after she wrecks into a pole, leaving her with no memory of what happened prior to her accident. Tom, her husband, is supportive and concerned, but the police think Karen’s amnesia is a convenient lie given the circumstances. Karen’s best friend and next door neighbor, Brigid, wants to get to the bottom of things as well, but she’s got her own agenda.

In the weeks leading up to her accident, Karen was getting worried that someone had been coming in to her house when no one was home. She would notice little things, such as a book moved on the right side as opposed to the left, indents in her bed covers, etc. All of this makes you wonder if Karen is unstable. Does she really not remember what happened that night, or did she do what the cops are accusing her of and she’s just playing the victim?

This fast paced thriller kept me hooked the entire time. It will have you questioning the motives and mental stability of all the characters, and the ending will definitely stick with you! I have read all of Lapena’s books now and look forward to any upcoming releases she will have!
