Recent Reads -Women on the Edge: ALMOST MISSED YOU and A SIMPLE FAVOR

By | Tuesday, June 13, 2017|3 Comments

These two books are both written by debut authors and feature women in trouble. I would classify them both as mystery/thriller. Other than that, they aren’t really that similar. I liked one much more than the other. I love the idea of this book. ALMOST MISSED YOU is about second chances and what-ifs […]

This story didn’t go the direction I thought it would. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised. Reba and Julie are completely opposites growing up in a small town in the south. Reba is good and pure, and Julie is reckless and lives on the edge. Reba’s life ends tragically when she is […]

Review: THE PERFECT STRANGER by Megan Miranda

I was totally blown away last year by ALL THE MISSING GIRLS. I knew this book wouldn’t be written in the same backwards fashion, but I still expected a lot. I was not disappointed. This author has a talent for writing mystery. The story starts with Leah’s fixation on her free spirited roommate […]

Like the spellbinding psychological suspense in The Girl on the Train and Luckiest Girl Alive, Megan Miranda’s novel is a nail-biting, breathtaking story about the disappearances of two young women—a decade apart—told in reverse.

It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.

The decade-old investigation focused on Nic, her brother Daniel, boyfriend Tyler, and Corinne’s boyfriend Jackson. Since then, only Nic has left Cooley Ridge. Daniel and his wife, Laura, are expecting a baby; Jackson works at the town bar; and Tyler is dating Annaleise Carter, Nic’s younger neighbor and the group’s alibi the night Corinne disappeared. Then, within days of Nic’s return, Annaleise goes missing.

Told backwards—Day 15 to Day 1—from the time Annaleise goes missing, Nic works to unravel the truth about her younger neighbor’s disappearance, revealing shocking truths about her friends, her family, and what really happened to Corinne that night ten years ago.

Like nothing you’ve ever read before, All the Missing Girls delivers in all the right ways. With twists and turns that lead down dark alleys and dead ends, you may think you’re walking a familiar path, but then Megan Miranda turns it all upside down and inside out and leaves us wondering just how far we would be willing to go to protect those we love.

Am I a bit late to the party for this book? Maybe. It doesn’t really matter thought because ALL THE MISSING GIRLS is a bit timeless. It takes place in a small town 10 years ago, and then in current times. A girl went missing 10 years ago. That’s not why Nicolette, (Nic), […]

Recent DNFs

I really HATE writing this post. Part of the reason I started reviewing things was to put my honest opinion out there. So, unfortunately, bad reviews are a thing that needs to be done. I DNF (did not finish) a book when I can’t take it anymore. These books put me into a […]
