Publisher's Summary

People are capable of almost anything.
Fast-paced and addictive, The Couple Next Door announces a major new talent in thriller writing.
You never know what's happening on the other side of the wall.
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 live only 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?

An excellent thriller with many twists and turns

If you could sum up The Couple Next Door in three words, what would they be?

Riveting, believable, fast-paced

What did you like best about this story?

It has many unexpected twists. The plot attracted me but the actual story was even better than I anticipated. The story was very well told with plenty of detail but not so much that it was boring or monotonous.

What does Kirsten Potter bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her voice brought the characters to life. They were all well developed and believable.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The incident in the school bathroom. Without giving anything away it was quite shocking.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommend this book. I enjoyed the whole story. The baby's mother's story was well thought out and had a lot of depth.
