Someone We Know Book Review

I have a huge stack of books to read and an even longer list of books I want to get! I figure that now is the best time to get some serious reading done.

I just finished reading Someone We Know by Shari Lapena. She also wrote The Couple Next Door which I read and reviewed a couple of years ago.

I wasn’t too sure what to expect this this one had it all! We’ve got family drama, murder, affairs, and small town gossip. What I especially like is that it’s not just the parents that have drama, but the teenagers are included in there too. Basically a teenager has been breaking into people’s houses but he hasn’t been stealing things.. just snooping through their computer and learning some interesting secrets! This definitely starts making the residents paranoid and it all goes downhill from there.

The point of view changes around throughout the book so you get more information and an insight into the different characters. You also find out more gossip that way too. I was pretty surprised by the ending! This is one of the few books where I didn’t work it out before hand. I thought it was one thing and though I was somewhat close, I was still totally off! I got a couple of the details right but I never would have figured it out which I love! I hate when the ending is going to be super obvious.

Have you guys read this one yet? If so, did you know what was going to happen at the end?
