Read A Stranger in the House Online Free - In this neighborhood, danger lies close to home. A domestic thriller packed full of secrets, and a twisty story that never stops—from the bestselling author of The Couple Next Door
He looks at her, concerned. “How do you feel?” She wants to say, Terrified. Instead, she says, with a faint smile, “Glad to be home.”
Karen and Tom Krupp are happy—they’ve got a lovely home in upstate New York, they’re practically newlyweds, and they have no kids to interrupt their comfortable life together. But one day, Tom returns home to find Karen has vanished—her car’s gone and it seems she left in a rush. She even left her purse—complete with phone and ID—behind.
There's a knock on the door—the police are there to take Tom to the hospital where his wife has been admitted. She had a car accident, and lost control as she sped through the worst part of town.
The accident has left Karen with a concussion and a few scrapes. Still, she’s mostly okay—except that she can’t remember what she was doing or where she was when she crashed. The cops think her memory loss is highly convenient, and they suspect she was up to no good.
Karen returns home with Tom, determined to heal and move on with her life. Then she realizes something’s been moved. Something’s not quite right. Someone’s been in her house. And the police won't stop asking questions.
Because in this house, everyone’s a stranger. Everyone has something they’d rather keep hidden. Something they might even kill to keep quiet.

Let me start this whole she-bang by saying I almost DNFed this book in excess of 10 times. I’ll repeat that statement slower for maximum impact. I. ALMOST. DNFed. THIS. BOOK. TEN. BLOODY. TIMES. For those unfamiliar with my reading habits this is a HUGE deal. Like scream-it-from-the-rooftops leve...

I'm not going to write a detailed review. I found this book to be a convoluted mess. The last 3 pages were good. Other than that, I don't have much to say!

I literally could not stop reading or thinking about reading this book! I loved the frantic tone that gave me the feeling of being on edge and the super quick pace. Never a boring moment. I carried this book around with me just in case I had a few minutes to get a few pages in!

I haven't read Shari Lapena's previous novel, the hugely successful "The Couple Next Door", so I was looking forward to reading a book by a new author to me and a one that comes highly recommended within my online book circles.
"A Stranger In The House" is a brilliant and intriguing suspense thril...

A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena is a 2017 Pamela Dorman Books publication.
Oh dear. Well, this novel is the fourth one I’ve read within a one or two- month span with very similar plot lines.
Although, by the time I got this one from the library, I’d grown weary of the repetitiveness, I hav...

2017 Award - Worst Read of the Year (runner up)
The Stranger in the House should have a run-in with the Girl on the Train and save us all from these horrible little chick-lit thrillers.
Nothing redeeming to say about thi...

Traveling Sister Review by Brenda and Lindsay
What a surprise a Stranger in the House was for us as we were not expecting to like this one as much as we did. I decided to listen to this while Lindsay read it. It’s a great easy one to listen to that didn't require my full attention.

I was really enjoying this book, I was intrigued. And although it was a "classic" storyline, were if honesty reigned supreme, none of the chaos would have happened. I kept hoping for "more". Oh, and do not get me started on Tom, what a weak, pathetic spouse!!!!

4 stars! I was impressed with this quick and easy, suspense-filled thriller!
This was an engrossing and addictive story. There was a lot of hype surrounding this author, Shari Lapena's, well-loved previous novel "The Couple Next Door". Going into this one, I wasn't sure how this novel would compa...
