Book Review: Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss

Welcome Home, Caroline Kline by Courtney Preiss opens with Caroline Kline couch surfing in New York City due to her no longer having a job and her fiance breaking up with her.

Unfortunately, the story started off a bit slow and continued to be slow at points throughout the book.

Thank you, NetGalley, for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of The Stranger Upstairs by Lisa M. Matlin.  The synopsis was intriguing, and when I received word that my request to read and review this book, I was thrilled.  I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Although I didn't necessarily like the main character, Sarah Slade, or her husband, I really wanted things to go her way and for the book to have a good ending.  There were so many twists and turns that I wasn't sure what to expect.  Whether it was a good ending or not, you'll have to read The Stranger Upstairs for yourself to find out.  

Despite not liking Sarah too much, I was intrigued with this story from the first page and found parts of it to be reminiscent of The Shining by Stephen King.  It definitely had me sitting on the edge of my seat, and there were times I was creeped out.

Four out of five stars is what I give The Stranger Upstairs by Lisa M. Matlin.  Don't miss out on this suspenseful, creepy, and horrifying novel.  I look forward to reading more stories from this author.
