#BookReview: The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn @AJFinnBooks @WmMorrowBooks

34848682My Review…

Who’s that woman in the window?

Dr. Anna Fox has spent the past 10 months inside her NY home. Her home is her safe place and she is too afraid to venture outside her door.

She entertains herself daily with the following activities:
-downing bottles of Merlot and popping pills prescribed by her physician
-following the lives of her neighbors through the lens of her camera
-playing online chess
-watching black and white films from her large collection of DVDs/mostly Hitchcock with some themes that may later be back to haunt her
-talks on the phone to her ex-husband and her daughter (who he has custody of)

This is all fine and dandy until one day while “getting to know” her new neighbors through her lens, she sees something harrowing!

So very clever!! Yet all the clues are set out if you can “catch” them!

Beware that the beginning is a bit confusing and takes awhile to set things in motion, but even with that I couldn’t pull myself away from the story.

Very fast read for me! Not edge of your seat, but more like the pull of a magnet. Loved this one! 5 STARS

 

Book Description…

What did she see?

It’s been ten long months since Anna Fox last left her home. Ten months during which she has haunted the rooms of her old New York house like a ghost, lost in her memories, too terrified to step outside.

Anna’s lifeline to the real world is her window, where she sits day after day, watching her neighbours. When the Russells move in, Anna is instantly drawn to them. A picture-perfect family of three, they are an echo of the life that was once hers.

But one evening, a frenzied scream rips across the silence, and Anna witnesses something no one was supposed to see. Now she must do everything she can to uncover the truth about what really happened. But even if she does, will anyone believe her? And can she even trust herself?

    • Just remember the first 30% will seem confusing, but once it takes off, you’ll fly through it! I just watched Rear Window and loved seeing Jimmy and Grace! So fun! Now I’m told I need to watch Gaslight…have to look it up. Hope you love it as much as I did!
