The lowdown from Goodreads

Publication Date January 2, 2018

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.


The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn Book Review

I am perpetually late to the party. It seems that everyone read & loves The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn & I get it. The bottom line is the book is incredible.

Classic Movies, Agoraphobia & Wine

Oh, Anna. She suffers from agoraphobia & sits in her home all day watching classic TCM style movies and drinking loads of wine. Recently separated, she rents out her bottom floor to a young man who helps her around the house & she has a Physical Therapist come in a few times a week. Other than that, she’s alone with her wine. So, she does what any normal person (me) would do, she gets nosy and watches out her window.

Was It the Wine & Meds, or Was it a Murder?

Much like one of my favorite movies EVER, Rear Window, Anna thinks she sees a murder out of her apartment window. Quickly, Anna is enthralled & invested in finding out exactly what happened to The Woman in the Window.

Too bad she isn’t sleeping well, her meds are a wreck & she’s reeling from her separation. Even though she is a hot mess, she’s relatable to me. She is trying to make it through this tough time in her life, but she is who she is. Anna is a highly educated woman who suffers from an anxiety disorder.  There is an event that triggers her agoraphobia, and that trigger runs under the surface throughout the story & builds further tension.


I am Really Into This book. Hopefully, we will have The Woman in the Window movie soon. Also, I can’t wait to read more from A.J. Finn. I LOVED this well-written, tense,  smart & suspenseful read.
