kill Amanda This is a quick read and just as the police latch on a new suspect, we learn secrets and see that another person has a reason to murder Amanda This neighborhood has so many secrets and it s full of rumors and indiscretions, people hiding what they ve done, hiding what others have done, suspecting everyone else, not owning up to their own failingswhat a mess of a neighborhood Throw into this murder mystery the fact that a sixteen year old neighbor has been breaking into houses and hacking into peoples computers His mom finds out and sends an anonymous letter to two of the people whose houses he broke into and apologizes for what he has done This misguided action just adds fuel to the fire of suspicions, with disastrous consequences No one would want a murderer to think that

difficult letter to write I hope you will not hate us too much My son broke into your home recently while you were out A teenage boy who breaks into his neighbors homes to look around and hack into

secrets Even if you think you know your neighbors, do you truly know what goes on behind closed doors How well do you know your spouse In this book, secrets will be revealed as the twists and turns keep coming There are several suspects and each one is plausible and makes sense Just when the police bring in one suspect, someone comes forward with information or to admit to a lie I was right there with the investigators changing my suspect list as the book progressed I love putting on my super sleuth hat and trying to figure out whodunit and enjoyed every second of this layered plot As the lies and secrets are revealed, husbands and wives will learn harsh truths about each other, and neighbors will learn about their neighbors than they might have wanted to know There are quite a few characters in this book, but they all have distinct personalities which makes it very easy to keep track of them.Lapena did not disappoint with this book She is a clever writer who she everything together in the end in a pleasing and interesting way I love her writing I found the reactions of the characters to be realistic and found this book to be a fun, thought provoking and riveting page turner I also appreciated that the reveal did not come of left field with this book The reveal was believable and well done Whether you figure it out or not, this book was a wonderful whodunit The pacing was spot on There was never a dull moment and nothing in the book felt rushed The only reason this book didn t 5 stars from me is because I would have liked to have known of the backstory between the murdered woman and her husband, otherwise, this was a hit for me.As long as Lapena keeps writing I will keep reading her books.Thank you to the Publisher and Edelweiss who provided me with

Seriously what an entertaining whodunit book, till the last moment you don t know who is guilty, questions flying, revelations confuses you Raleigh breaks and enters to the neighbors houses for snooping around, checking their email accounts and sending fake emails to the other people just for a little thrill, accidentally opens Pandora s box and all neighborhood s dirty secrets started to pour out The marriage about to destroy and one of the neighbor is about to be killed.FACTS ABOUT BOOK 1 THERE ARE TOO MANY LIES, SECRETS, CHEATERS ON THIS BOOK NOBODY IS INNOCENT Every character lies on this book Every character has big secrets Every one of them has different agenda I was about to blurt out laughing because at some parts the book turned into mysterious tele novelas, most soap y operas, you know that ones, the man who sleeps with his own maid, daughter in law at the same time, when his wife s having a relationship with gardener and her trainer 2 THE HATE YOU GAVE TO AMANDA One thing I m sure, the victim, Amanda so sorry for language is a total sl t If she hasn t killed, I was volunteered to slap her several times and kick her ass so long that she cannot walk for weeks and share her secrets on social media Yes, that s a first I hated the guts of the victim And most of the male characters also deserved to be punched Come on boys, why couldn t you restrain yourself and think with your under your bellies as soon as you saw fresh meat recently moved to the next door or hangs out at your work place to use your elevator for the most inappropriate ways 3 PSYCHOPATH ALERT Amanda s husband terrifies the hell of you as a quiet mash up of Ted Bundy and Talented Tom Ripley We know there is not something wrong with him There were so many things really really wrong with this guy 4 AS USUAL TOO MANY UNLIKABLE CHARACTERS Of course I m not quiet fan of cheaters, liars, fake friends, noisy neighbors who were watching mostly stalking the other houses inhabitants Don t forget Carmine Torres who threatens everyone just show them how smart and good detective she is I think I loved Raleigh, I know what he did was wrong but at least he was brave enough to endure the consequences And Olivia might be the most decent character Even if it s silly move to make her son write apologizing letters and put them in the P.O boxes of the victims were fair and honest actions 5 ENDING IS GOOD It was not too predictable I predicted but you know I had spider senses 6 THE AUTHOR MADE FOOL OF US Yes mostly she did She confuses your mind by giving different end scenarios Final twist was nicely served We read a great book of a gifted mind APPLAUSE I love this writer s works Unwanted Guest and Couple Next Door are my favorites But I think this book is also surprisingly good

e mails do not have serious consequences Isn t it a decent thing to do and if we, parents, do not do what is moral and decent, how can we expect our children to learn what is right and wrong This is what Olivia Sharpe thinks Her husband and son, and family lawyer are of a completely different opinion The anonymous letters she has secretly sent her neighbours have enormous repurcussions on the life of everybody in this close knit suburban neighbourhood, because everybody here has their own secrets.We know from the very beginning of the book that a horrendous murder has taken place We know the murder weapon used and the fact that the murderer was male We also learn the identity of the victim Amanda Pierce is reported missing by her husband Robert The murderer is someone who lives in one of these houses It is in all likelihood someone we know But to discover who it was and why, we ll have to doubt every single person, no matter how nice and friendly they appear to be.Despite its relative simplicity there is a limited number of people involved , the plot is complex and frighteningly realistic A husband is cheating on his wife after twenty years of marriage and grown up kids A bored and lonely housewife gets infatuated with a much younger neighbour after he shows her a morsel of attention A teenager who used to be so well adjusted and problem free is suddenly showing signs of teenage alcoholism Another teenager gets a thrill from snooping around and spying on other people s secrets A couple who have always taken trusting each other for granted, but do not seem to be able to speak to each other about things which are important All these characters and their lives are interlocked and interconnected in this superbly written mystery.The police are there and they are doing excellent work by continually discovering new clues and putting pressure on the right people They also know when the suspect or rather the suspects, because there are several they arrest appears to be innocent and is to be released, because new evidence and new leads keep appearing and need to be checked out.When the mystery is finally resolved and it all makes sense, you will still be asking yourself questions about how far people are willing to go to cover a crime committed by somebody they love.This is my first book by Shari Lapena and now I can see why her previous titles became bestsellers The writing is incredibly compelling Someone We Know is a clever fast paced whodunnit that will keep you entertained and might even give you the satisfaction of guessing the identity of the murderer before anybody else.Thank you to Edelweiss and Pamela Dorman Books for the ARC provided in exchange for an honest opinion.My reviews can also be found on flag 81 likesLike see review View

out about her son s break ins, she contacts a lawyer for advice However, she innocently leaves anonymous notes for her son s targets apologizing for his actions She feels like it s the right thing to do, but now it becomes knowledge that there s been break ins within the neighborhood Why would her son want to go into people s homes and why would he want to hack into their computers Olivia brushes this moment as a thing of the past, that is until one of her son s victims turns up dead As news breaks about Amanda Pierce s death, Olivia starts frantically worrying over her son s innocence She knows he wouldn t do anything to harm another person, but will her son s actions unravel into a deeper, sinister mystery Someone We Know is a great light mystery, that weaves slow building suspense with each page I really enjoyed Lapena s ability to focus on a plethora of characters throughout this story We get to know a lot about each of the neighbors in this tight knit community, and each person is very different from the other Each character is portrayed in their own certain light, so you ll never confuse any of them The synopsis provided by the publisher, and my quick little plot wrap up does nothing to describe the mystery that unfolds in Someone We Know Olivia s son s actions are literally the tip of the iceberg in this multifaceted story The best part about this book were the interconnecting puzzle pieces all wrapped together into one massive mystery You don t know which character s secrets are most important, and you slowly start to see how one mystery snowballs into another making it deeper and darker than you ever expected.Shari Lapena s been a very popular thriller suspense author since her debut novel The Couple Next Door and her writing continues to grow in intensity and tact Someone We Know is definitely going to entertain audiences whether you can handle thriller novels are not Trust me, anyone can enjoy this book, even if you get scared easily Someone

a bunch of different theories while reading this, and I was wrong about the finale plot twist so that s good I guess the reason I didn t enjoy this one as much is because the ending felt very underwhelming So much awesome build up, and then I felt so meh about the end of this book I also feel like this book started to get so repetitive view spoiler Amanda literally had an affair going on with every guy in the neighborhood and they would find out about a new affair every 50 pages and it would be the same shit they d become a new suspect for killing her, and then he d be like I was sleeping with her but I didn t kill her 1 1 And it just got kind of annoying after the third or fourth guy in a row I had a feeling it was none of the guys she slept with anyway so I was like get to

several characters in a neighborhood where a murder took place, including the mother of a teenage boy who has been breaking into people s houses The book is told through several POVs, and while it was difficult to keep all of the characters straight initially, it soon became clear as the book wove seamlessly through each POV There are several dynamics at play here it s than just the murder We have mothers worried about their sons and their behavior, spouses worried that their partner is having an affair, neighbors wondering who killed the beautiful woman down the block, and so on More than just the murder, the book also centers on love, trust, and family For me, the murder was the icing on the cake I had several theories that changed frequently throughout the book as and information was revealed, and I have to admit, I didn t have it figured out until it was hitting me in the face, which was nice I had a hard time putting the book down because I was dying to know how everything would unfold Overall, I really enjoyed this book, and highly recommend it for fans of books like Big Little Lies Someone We Know is out July 30, 2019, so be sure to mark your calendars for the next big

I may have a little sadistical streak because I love those type of stories I feel like settling down with a bag of popcorn and just watch it all go up in flames Maybe it s just that it instantly makes me feel better about the comparably small disasters in my own life Well, if you appreciate this special form of entertainment, then you are in for a treat, because Lapena is a master at making her hapless characters stumble blindly from the frying pan into the fire without pausing for breath To be fair, it s a teenager who sets into motion this particular undoing, and teenagers are renowned for making rash and often unwise decisions Raleigh, an up and coming computer hacker, thinks it would be great fun to sneak into people s houses whilst they are away to do some snooping around on their personal computers Ha, you say yes, I immediately spotted the potential as well The premise is just asking for some skeletons to crawl out of someone s search history But it gets even worse for Raleigh when the wife of one of his targets gets murdered From here on, Lapena sets out to spin a clever and captivating web that had me read this mystery in almost one setting if not for life and work I would not have wanted to put this downMEONE WE KNOW relies heavily on neighbourhood dynamics and the terrible decisions people make in everyday life that will have devastating consequences It s a lighter mystery that will appeal to readers who do not like too much gore or tension in their books, even though the suspense built to such a crescendo that I had to find out how it would end There were lots of suspects and everybody lies, which made this a fun mystery to try and solve I am quite proud that I worked out one suspect quite early in the piece, but was not prepared for all the twists and complexities that developed in the later part of the book.If you are looking for a lighter but nonetheless addictive and clever mystery this summer or winter, if you live in Australia like me , then this book should definitely be on your TBR pile.3.5 stars Thank you to Edelweiss and Pamela Dorman Books for the free electronic copy of this novel and for giving me the opportunity to

committed the crime A flirtatious, unfaithful wife is brutally murdered in the first chapter Suspicion immediately falls on the men in her life, especially those suspected of having extramarital

having affairs with the murdered woman and of killing her Soon another woman is found dead, strangled in her home Although Shari Lapena has become one of the most successful suspense writers in
