A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena

I might be biased because I absolutely adore Shari Lapena! I feel like this book was hit and miss with people, but I loved this book! For me, this was a great story and such a page-turner. Also, short chapters!! There is nothing better than short chapters, that mostly end in cliffhangers. Such a crazy story and the ending was mind-blowing to me. I had my suspicions because I think I'm a fabulous detective (I secretly wish) but really, I couldn't anticipate all that. The only reason this isn't a 5 star for me is the characters, I didn't really like the characters excepts one of the main character Karen. I highly recommend!

You come home after a long day at work, excited to have dinner with your beautiful wife.
     But when you walk through the door, you quickly realize that she's not there.
     In the kitchen, there is a pot on the stove, and vegetables on the counter, abandoned.
     Her cell phone and her purse are still in the house, in the bedroom, exactly where she keeps them.
     It looks like she's left in a blind panic.
     You fear the worst, so you call her friends to see if they know where she is.
     Then you call the police.
     The police tell you that your wife's been in an accident. They found her in the worst part of town after she lost control of the car while speeding through the streets. But why would she go to that neighborhood? And why was she driving so fast? Was she running toward something? Or away from something?
     The police think your wife was up to no good.
     You refuse to believe it, at first.
     Then, as the stories and facts don't line up, and your wife can't remember what happened that evening, you start to wonder. You've been married for two years and you thought you knew her better than anyone else in the world . . .
     . . . but maybe you don't.
