I picked up A Stranger In The House on a whim, but Chapter’s Boxing Day sale was a heavy influencer in this purchase. But it was one of those purchases that I don’t regret. And I’ve definitely had one (or many) of those. A Stranger In The House is a msytery thriller, about a suburban house wife, Karen, that gets into a horrible car accident and loses her memory of that night. Things become more complicated then just trying to figure out why Karen was speeding that night, but now a dead body has turned up near the seen of the crime.
A Stranger in the House is very similar to those of The Girl on the Train and The Good Girl. Both novels I would highly recommend picking up. I will have links to them down below. Throughout the next few weeks, Karen and her husband are pulled through a chaotic whirlwind of chaos, misery, confusion and anger. And what doesn’t help matters is a nosey neighbour who can’t seem to stay away from the couples home. But a question you will ask yourself throughout the novel is just how much do you really know someone? Be it your spouse, your neighbour, your boss or even a friend. You’ll never know until the unthinkable happens. This is where Karen know find herself. Stuck in limbo not knowing whether she can trust her husband, her friend or even her own mind.
Overall rating: 4/5 stars
Would I recommend: yes I would. If you like a good mystery where you like to try to solve the crime as you go this is the book for you.
