✏Synopsis: Parents go to party next door. Leaves baby alone at home. Baby goes missing. Who is the kidnapper? Where is the baby?
✏Pros: Compulsive page-turner. Fast-paced. Engrossing. Action-packed. Easy, entertaining read. Raw emotions of the distraught parents was so real. The way the culprit keeps cool and continues to improvise the out-of-control events is very thrilling. A movie waiting to happen. Mouth-gaping shocking twists in between.
✏Cons: Amateurish writing but makes for an easy read. I kind of subconsciously knew who the culprits were and then comes a Midway Anti-climax!! This was disappointing as I like my climax at the end😅 Three-quarter way the book becomes a little repetitive. The couple next door as a title was superb but would have liked more focus on them. Lot of characters and scenes were not elaborated on. I love open endings but the one in this book makes you go like – “seriously?! oh whatever!”?
✏All in all, a very entertaining crime fiction with a healthy dose of mental health issues!😂 I wouldn’t call it that much of a psychological thriller though. I like my books to be more crazy😎😉 4-stars🌟🌟🌟🌟
