I so enjoyed Wendy Walker’s ALL IS NOT FORGOTTEN. I was elated to read another book by this author. EMMA IN THE NIGHT is a story about two sisters. This story is also about narcissism and how it can affect a family. Cass, 15, and her sister, 17, have been missing for three […]
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 […]
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 […]
After reading MR.MERCEDES I knew I would have to finish this series. Stephen King is one of my favorite authors and his delve into police procedural is pretty fucking fantastic. Bill Hodges is a perfectly flawed hero and I grew to really love him. In FINDER’S KEEPERS we meet a kid named Pete […]
MR.MERCEDES is the first Stephen King book I have picked up in a long time. Although Stephen King’s books were really my first taste of reading, I haven’t read anything of his since THE CELL came out in 2006. I am happy to see that Stephen King still has it. MR.MERCEDES is the […]
I wanted to love THE GIRL BEFORE. I definitely did at first, even when I realized it sounded like a book I read last year. The only things that kept me determined to finish this book was 1) what actually happened to Emma, and 2) I wanted to learn more about the house […]
You know that feeling you get when you can’t wait to get back to reading a book? That was me with THE RIVER AT NIGHT. I have been in a bit of a rut with reading lately. This book got me excited about reading again. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened […]
This was an unexpected read. I loved Nick Cutter’s THE DEEP last year, so I was expecting a lot from LITTLE HEAVEN. Too much maybe? The author has distinct style of writing fucked up characters. You think you know what to expect. The author invites you to judge these characters, then he throws […]

For fans of The Secret History and How to Get Away With Murder comes an exciting new voice in suspense fiction.
Ten years working as a prosecutor have left Meredith Delay jaded and unsure of what she wants out of life. She’s good at her job, but it haunts her. Her boyfriend wants her to commit, but she keeps him at arm’s length. Then Meredith is assigned to a high-profile prosecution involving the violent murder of a fallen hockey star. At first, it appears to be just another case to work. But when her old friend Julian is accused of the murder, it takes on a whole new dimension.
Meredith, Julian, Jonathan, and Lily were a tight-knit group in law school. But now, Jonathan’s defending Julian, and Lily’s loyalties aren’t clear. And when Julian invokes a rare—and risky—defence, Meredith is forced to confront their past.
Has something they played at as students finally been brought to death?
This is such a fun idea! This book is written by the main character in Catherine McKenzie’s book FRACTURED. THE MURDER GAME is semi fictional account of a woman in law school and then ten years later that same woman called to prosecute a man she used to know. The defense attorney is […]

In this chilling psychological thriller, one woman's dark past becomes another's deadly future
In 2003, sixteen-year-old Rebecca Winter disappeared.
She'd been enjoying her summer break: working at a fast-food restaurant, crushing on an older boy and shoplifting with her best friend. Mysteriously ominous things began to happen—a presence in her room at night, periods of blackouts, a feeling of being watched—though Bec remained oblivious of what was to come.
Eleven years later she is replaced.
A young woman, desperate after being arrested, claims to be the decade-missing Bec.
Soon the impostor is living Bec's life. Sleeping in her bed. Hugging her mother and father. Learning her best friends' names. Playing with her little brothers.
But Bec's welcoming family and enthusiastic friends are not quite as they seem. As the impostor dodges the detective investigating her case, she begins to delve into the life of the real Bec Winter—and soon realizes that whoever took Bec is still at large, and that she is in imminent danger.
I wasn’t sure about this book. The main character was wholly unlikable for me until about almost half way through the story. The main character is telling a major lie, she pretends to be a girl who went missing 11 years ago. The thing that kills me about this story is that there […]
