The Child Next Door by Shalini Boland – (Audiobook)

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 – 4.5 stars

Kirsty Rawlings is beside herself with fear. She overheard something on her child’s baby monitor that horrified her. She summons the police and informs her husband of her suspicions. But her fears seem unfounded.

Kirsty is feeling a bit insecure. After their baby, Daisy, came along, her relationship with her husband, Dominic, has become mostly platonic and less romantic. Money is tight, and her nerves are on edge after a mess of strange, unexplained occurrences have happened. Paranoia grips her. She’s always harried and suspicious of everyone around her. Neighbors regard her cautiously. Do they think she’s crazy? Is somebody trying to take her baby? Is her husband involved with someone else? Has her best friend betrayed her? Is she delusional?

This book!! I have to admit that when I first started it I thought it was going to be just another predictable psychological thriller. I was wrong. I did not anticipate the twists and turns that left my mouth agape and my mind whirling. And that epilogue!!

This was my first Shalini Boland book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I purchased this audiobook from Audible. The narrator, Katie Villa, was excellent and contributed to my enjoyment of the book. Recommended.

    • It was very good, Jill. Audiobooks have been saving my reading life since for now it’s a little difficult to read actual books. I’m getting there, though. About to finish a Heartwarming book, then need to finish a cozy and Netgalley book, then starting on your book. ☺️
      Thanks for stopping by, Jill. 🤗


    • Hi, Jennifer!! 🤗
      You’ve never read a Shalini Boland book, my book lovin’ buddy?! I’m surprised since you’re an amazing, prolific reader and Boland seems quite popular among voracious readers like yourself. I think you’d like this one. Maybe you can squeeze it in one of these days.
      Thanks for stopping by my friend. 😘😊

      I’ve seen many bloggers post reviews for Boland’s books, who I’d never previously heard of before either, so I finally got around to listening to one. It was very good!!
