Well this is one of those books. A. J. Finn has hit the mark with this highly anticipated thriller was worth the wait, although it sat on my TBR shelf for a week longer then I had anticipated. As it can life pushed its way into my reading plan for the month and set me on a different course.
Women in the Window follows the day to day life of Anna Fox, a former child psychologist, who has agoraphobia, a fear of leaving the house. She works with her psychologist to try and overcome her fear of leaving the house, but the struggle is deep seeded and at times appears to vast to ever overcome.
To occupy her time, she has taken to hobbies such as basically visually stalking her neighborhood, peering thru open shades, using her camera to take images of the families during their daily lives and using her computer as a way to dig into each person’s past.
Things begin changing as her new neighbors begin to show up on her doorstep to get to know her. Or so she thinks. She grows closer to the teenager living across the way, Ethan. Ethan’s family is full of secrets and lies. Anna sees a woman whom she met prior who introduced herself as Ethan’s mother stabbed thru the chest thru the window. With her medical conditions and the cocktail of medications Anna is on no one believes what she saw.
Ending with an unexpected twist, you will see Anna push past her limits and overcome some of her deepest fears.
