About The Book
No matter what you see, no matter what you’ve heard, assume nothing.
Adam and Sophie Warner and their three-year-old daughter are vacationing in Washington State’s Hood Canal for Memorial Day weekend. It’s the perfect getaway to unplug—and to calm an uneasy marriage. But on Adam’s first day out on the water, he sees Sophie abducted by a stranger. A hundred yards from shore, Adam can’t save her. And Sophie disappears.
In a nearby cabin is another couple, Kristen and Connor Moss. Unfortunately, beyond what they’ve heard in the news, they’re in the dark when it comes to Sophie’s disappearance. For Adam, at least there’s comfort in knowing that Mason County detective Lee Husemann is an old friend of his. She’ll do everything she can to help. She must.
But as Adam’s paranoia about his missing wife escalates, Lee puts together the pieces of a puzzle. The lives of the two couples are converging in unpredictable ways, and the picture is unsettling. Lee suspects that not everyone is telling the truth about what they know—or they have yet to reveal all the lies they’ve hidden from the strangers they married.

My Review Of
Lying Next to Me
This book starts off running and does not stop. A page turner from the first chapter to the twisted ending. These characters, the main two couples, Adam and Sophie Warner along with Kristen and Connor Moss, had me on a roller coaster of guessing what would come next or better yet what secret will be revealed in the next paragraph of the book! All is not always what it seems is the best way to describe these two couples. I kept flopping back and forth as to do I like Adam or despise him, at times it was hard to feel sorry for him that his wife is missing and at other times I thought this guy is missing the sensitivity chip.
I have not read a twisted tale like this in a while and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. What a WTF last chapter!
