  • I loved It

    The story is full of twists. I loved it. It made me turn the case over and over again in my head. Her best work so far.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • First read by Lapena, will be reading more.

    You see that person across the way, peeking through their blinds. Oh, you didn’t notice? Don’t worry, they noticed you and all your sins that you should have kept behind closed curtains. My husband always wants to keep our curtains closed. Maybe I should be wondering what he’s getting up to when I’m not at home. Maybe I should get a pair of binoculars and start watching my neighbors. Then again, I may not like what I see. Shari Lapena’s book, Someone We Know, had me thinking those thoughts while I was reading it. Best part, I was in a hotel in downtown Chicago so I could peer across the road into other windows and have a perfect view. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, I didn’t see much besides a few people walking around their room. I can see why my Books Don’t Review Themselves podcast partner, Jess, enjoys Shari Lapena so much. She really has mastered the art of slowly letting secrets slip. Just when you think you know what is going on or who the killer is, Lapena lets another bit of information be revealed. It amused me how this kept happening to the police, and how sarcastic they became as the story progressed. And the fact that Lapena could keep everyone’s secret flowing well speaks to an organized author or a really good editing team. Probably both. I didn’t catch any mistakes besides the ones that the suspects themselves made when telling their partial truths. Another part of the book that was done perfectly was how many side stories Lapena had throughout the book. It wasn’t just one main mystery of trying to find the killer, but who was cheating with whom, who was not where they said they were, and who was sticking up for others and for what reason. And some of those reasons were to protect themselves more so than the other person. I don’t want to even give a little clue as to who the killer is because the small thing that I wanted to say would give it away. But it was because of this small thing, that in my mind was a bigger thing, that I gave Someone We Know, four stars instead of five. After you read the book that might make sense. If not, leave a comment and I’ll let you know my sticking point in the book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
