    This was better than I expected. It's a tight, short and addictive mystery. At the centre of the story is Amanda, who is found dead toward the beginning of the novel. The story is then told from the many points of view of people in her neighbourhood who live in a tangled web of secrets...

    I was looking forward to reading this book but regret I am in the minority. I was disappointed. Many readers seemed to enjoy it, so prospective readers should not be deterred by my review. I thought it was a step down from her previous book. I failed to connect with any of the characte...

    A nice, quiet neighborhood. Well, except that a man's wife goes missing and a teenager is breaking into houses and hacking into computers. Everyone in the neighborhood is hiding something, and one of them is a killer. This novel has a lot of characters, and is told with alternating ...

    Unfortunately not my favorite Lapena book. While it was a fast read, I found the characters to be very blase and boring and the ending left a lot to be desired. There were just too many unanswered questions about Robert, his marriage to Amanda, and more. I felt leaving it on a cliffhan...

    A favorite mystery of the year! I really loved the format. It's told in present tense, which made it feel urgent to me, and the chapters jump around to a few of the various neighbors. Everyone is keeping secrets so it's easy to imagine many different people are guilty. I didn't know wh...

    Do you enjoy books where a character makes one tiny bad decision, and that little fluttering of butterfly wings sets into motion a giant shitstorm that sets about to destroy everything in its path? I may have a little sadistical streak because I love those type of stories. I feel like ...

    What a neighbourhood! Seemingly quiet and middle-class on the surface but behind closed doors, there are affairs, secrets, a teenage boy breaking into their houses and a missing woman later found murdered. Lapena keeps us guessing as the murder suspects pile up and the police keep chan...

    I've been a little burned out of domestic suspense novels lately, but knew I wanted to read Shari Lapena's newest book, Someone We Know, and I'm so glad I did! The novel follows several characters in a neighborhood where a murder took place, including the mother of a teenage boy who ha...

    I love Shari Lapena's writing. There's nothing clunky about it, her economy of language is amazing and I just glide through her words. This is a great story; full of secrets, jealousy, crappy neighbors and one spoiled teenager. Read it. ...

    I was really excited about this thriller because I love Shari Lapena and the story started off so promising. This is a very fast-paced, easy to read thriller about this neighborhood. We follow a few different families - the story opens with a woman being murdered in the neighborhood an...

    Shari Lapena.... I love this book ? Once I got started I struggled to put it down and would have read it in one sitting if I could. I have read books from the author before so I knew it would be good but I think this one is my favourite so far. There is so much going on all the time ...

    I'm not even sure where to start or even what to say about this one. It was an entertaining and quick read but I wasn't too fond with the way a few things played out in the end. So I'm going to leave it at that. Once again this was a Traveling Sisters Read and I was one of the few t...

    I don't feel like I have a lot to say about this one, other than I really enjoyed it, and I think fans of thrillers that feature in depth character study and traditional, reliable mysteries will too. It's refreshing to be able to stumble across suspense novels today that are more than ...

    I had just read a sad historical novel and this book was just what I needed to purge the sad. There is something about a murderous thriller, one where I really didn't bond with any of the characters but at the same time was able just to sit back and enjoy the show. In a quiet, middle c...

    Shari Lapena is one of those authors that should be on everyone's reading lists. Her writing is always dripping with suspense, and she always knows how to captivate an audience. Sadly, I've only read her last release, An Unwanted Guest, but that was a fun adventure! When I was given th...
