Someone We Know By Shari Lapena


It can be hard keeping secrets in a tight-knit neighbourhood.

In a tranquil, leafy suburb of ordinary streets – one where everyone is polite and friendly – an anonymous note has been left at some of the houses.

I’m so sorry. My son has been getting into people’s houses. He’s broken into yours.

Who is this boy, and what might he have uncovered? As whispers start to circulate, suspicion mounts.

And when a missing local woman is found murdered, the tension reaches breaking point. Who killed her? Who knows more than they’re telling? And how far will all these very nice people go to protect their secrets?

Maybe you don’t know your neighbour as well as you thought you did . . .

My Thoughts:

I found with this book that I raced through the beginning but didn’t really like the ending, it could of been such a great ending but it was not. The idea of the story intrigued me, a kid breaking into houses, but who is the boy and what has he seen? especially when a local woman is found dead, is the boy the missing part of this puzzle? secrets, lies and betrayals all play their part in this whodunit read. The neighbours are all suspicious but who was the culprit? I didn’t feel as though I gelled with any of the characters, I just felt suspicious of them all. An interesting story but the ending was not what I was expecting.
