The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
The description from Goodreads:
Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.
Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.
What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.
I’ll admit, I was a bit worried about this one. I read the description and liked it right away, the voyeuristic nature drew me in but I was worried it would be another female lead, take it or leave it thriller. I was definitely pleasantly surprised.
The Woman in the Window is a very easy read, I finished it in a day and I loved it. The pace is great, the suspense is done so well and the main character’s love of classic thriller movies paired well with the theme and pace of the book.
I liked the main character Anna, she’s a great narrator. and thought the other characters were interesting. The settling was described so well and that always makes me happy. A well described, beautiful brownstone in New York? I’m in reading heaven!
The twists were good, there was more than one and they were all done really well (yay for no clunky overly obvious twists).
I loved The Woman in the Window and I’ve already recommended it to all my family and friends that are readers.
