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 doesn’t require my full attention.

A Stranger in the House is an intriguing, easy and fast-paced suspenseful psychological thriller that had us both purely entertained by this fun and easy story.

Shari Lapena does a good job creating unlikable characters here. None worth liking but had us oddly invested in them and changing our minds on how we felt about them throughout the story. Even though none were worth rooting for either, we found ourselves rooting for each at different times. The story is told through the perspective of our three main characters and we enjoyed each one and really felt like we got to know them well.

The mystery behind this one had us guessing from start to finish. The shocking twists and turns had us flip-flopping back and forth with whodunit as the suspense built up for us until the final stunning twist that left us gasping and messaging each other as fast as we could.

We highly recommend for a fun, nice and easy, purely entertaining story to read or listen to.
