REVIEW: Someone We Know – Shari Lapena
In a tranquil, leafy suburb of ordinary streets – one where everyone is polite and friendly – an anonymous note has been left at some of the houses ‘I’m so sorry, my son has been getting into peoples houses. He’s broken into yours’
Who is this boy, and what might he have uncovered? As whispers starts to circulate, suspicion mounts.
And when a missing local woman is found murdered, the tension reaches breaking point. Who killed her? Who knows more than they’re telling? And how far will all these very nice people go to protect their secrets?
The book starts off with the prologue and reads very interesting, even hooking you straight away… within the first few chapters the first secrets unfold and it starts to give me a bit of a feel of Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn.
The book was very interesting and a good read but it was quite predictable up until the very end, apart from the big reveal of the who dunnit … I figured everything else out.
I would recommend this book but I wouldn’t say it is as good as an unwanted guest.
