Sarah and her husband buy a run-down house that hasn’t been lived in since a gruesome murder occurred many years before. 

The sense that something is off starts when they arrive at their new home. Besides the house’s strangeness, many other things are off in their lives. Will they survive?

I read The Stranger Upstairs with a book group, although I was late to the game, so I didn’t get to join in the great discussions. Most of the group enjoyed the book.

Even though there are some questions I have that weren’t answered in the story, I couldn’t wait to find out what was going on with this house. Was the house alive? Were the neighbors involved in the hubbub? What the heck is going on with Sarah and her husband? They are oddballs, for sure.

The story does a great job of grabbing your attention and making you want to keep reading to see what the heck happens. The only character I liked was Emily, Sarah’s co-worker. Everyone else was nasty, a liar, a cheater, or just plain strange. I didn’t understand many of Sarah’s decisions. She made everything more complicated for herself and others with her stupid choices. 

If you love a good thriller that throws in some red herrings, this is one for you!
