The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn

Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors. Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare. What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.

I love nothing more than a good thriller, and this one kept me captivated from the start. Not only was it a real page-turner with plenty of twists and turns, but you really become attached to the main character Anna and want to help her decipher what's real and what's not. All-in-all it's a great beach read that you won't be able to put down. Plus, the movie version starring Amy Adams and Julianne Moore is being released later this year, so if you haven't read this yet, now is the perfect time.
