11 Domestic Thrillers With Shocking Twists
Hey readers! I’m sharing with you, 11 Domestic Thrillers With Shocking Twists. These books are equally creepy, sad, and mysterious. You’ll love to hate the characters, but won’t be able to put these books down!
Upon first impression, these book characters seem like perfection.
They have the perfect…
- Family, with children who behave.
- Marriage, a spouse who worships them.
- Career, they make SO much money.
- Life, everyone loves them.
- Appearance, they’re drop dead gorgeous.
But oddly enough, even the people within their social circles, don’t know who they really are.
As we get deeper into the books, you’ll see the cracks in their illusions, and the price of perfection.
Secrecy, crimes, and everything in between is about to come up to the surface!
I’d recommend starting these books ASAP. But be warned, you’ll finish them in one sitting.

Sara’s Game by Ernie Lindsey
His car was found. He wasn’t. Unbelievably, the police report said, “No foul play suspected.” There were a few unreliable sightings over the following months, but little else. Now, on the last day before summer break, her three children have gone missing from their schools, all at the same time.
The Last Mrs. Parrish by Liv Constantine

Run Away by Harlan Coben
She runs. And you do the only thing a parent can do: you follow her into a dark and dangerous world you never knew existed. Before you know it, both your family and your life are on the line. And in order to protect your daughter from the evils of that world, you must face them head on.
The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison
Jodi and Todd are at a bad place in their marriage.

He is a committed cheater. She lives and breathes denial. He exists in dual worlds.
Watching You by Lisa Jewell
Melville Heights is one of the nicest neighborhoods in Bristol, England; home to doctors and lawyers and old-money academics. It’s not the sort of place where people are brutally murdered in their own kitchens. But it is the sort of place where everyone has a secret. And everyone is watching you.
The Other Woman by Sandie Jones
The most twisty, addictive and gripping debut thriller you’ll read this year. The Other Woman will have you questioning her on every page, in Sandie Jones’ chilling psychological suspense about a man, his new girlfriend, and the mother who will not let him go.
Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty
Nine people gather at a remote health resort. Some are here to lose weight, some are here to get a reboot on life, some are here for reasons they can’t even admit to themselves. Amidst all of the luxury and pampering, the mindfulness and meditation, they know these ten days might involve some real work.
The Mother-in-Law by Sally Hepworth
Diana is dead, a suicide note found near her body claiming that she longer wanted to live because of the cancer wreaking havoc inside her body. But the autopsy finds no cancer. It does find traces of poison, and evidence of suffocation. Who could possibly want Diana dead?
