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, and 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.

My Thoughts
What an AMAZING read!  I couldn't put this book down!  A.J. Finn truly has a gift with words as well as suspense.  Is the next writer to watch and I can't wait to see what he comes up with going forward!
The entire book literally revolves around Anna Fox living in her home in NYC and she is unable to go outside.  She will literally lose it if she opens a window and feels the breeze.
Her days consist of watching her neighbors (documenting their every step), drinking and watching black and white movies.
Families move in and move out and she thinks nothing of it until this family, The Russells moves in across the park.  Strange things start to happen and then wait...did that just happen?  Anna isn't sure if it was real or if it was the wine talking!
Anna's world is now turned upside down.  Will it ever be right again?
