Run Away by Harlan Coben @HarlanCoben @PRHAudio @TheStevenWeber #BookReview #RunAway

Hello book friends,

I finally dipped my toe into the spiders web that is Harlan Coben, and now I’m really not sure if I ever want to leave!!

๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ††๐Ÿ…ฑ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†ˆ ๐Ÿ…ต๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ณ๐Ÿ†‚ ๐Ÿ…ต๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†…๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†

This was my first Harlan Coben book, and judging by this one, it certainly won’t be my last.

Simon loves his daughter Paige, they used to be so close, that was until she ran away, she has been missing for a while and he has been doing his best to find her, but as she is classed as an adult, there isn’t much he can do about it but try and do it all himself.

She got involved with an older man who is abusive, and got herself mixed up with drugs, so she is not eager to come back home, even though her parents have done everything to help her get over this, rehab, counselling etc.

While chatting with a friend, he casually mentions that he had see his daughter in Central Park playing the guitar, so Simon jumps on the case and runs over to Strawberry Fields.

Except, when Paige sees her father she runs away, Simon can’t quite believe that it is his daughter, she looks awful, and the drugs she is on have made a once beautiful girl, into a shell of her former self, she is bedraggled, skinny and pale.

She is obviously in a lot of trouble, and the man who is with her is not helping matters, after getting into a scuffle with him and finding himself on the bad end of a viral video, his life starts to come tumbling down.

Finding a few clues along the way Simon manages to slowly fit the pieces together and start hunting for his daughter.

But things are not always as they seem!

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง

Narrated by Steven Weber who has narrated a few books I have listened to, including IT by Stephen King, you may also recognise his voice from playing the Principal on the 13 Reasons Why TV series on Netflix.
Either way, he was a perfect match for this high intense thriller.

Enjoy

Paranoid by Lisa Jackson @readlisajackson @mulhollandbooks #BookReview #LisaJackson #ReadParanoid

Hello friends,

Another day, another book!

Iโ€™m delighted to bring you a review for this fabulous Audiobook that had me staying up way to late in the evening to listen, I needed to know!!

My Thoughts

๐Ÿ…ฝ๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ†ƒ  ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ป   ๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ณ๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ…ณ  ๐Ÿ…ถ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ผ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†‚  ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด  ๐Ÿ…ต๐Ÿ†„๐Ÿ…ฝ

Rachel Gaston lives in Edgewater, Oregon and has done all her life, she was married (and divorced) there, and her ex husband is a local cop.

Her 2 children live with her, and she is happy with her lifeโ€ฆ.well, apart from the anxiety.

You see, Rachel is plagued with dreams, her dreams make her anxious, and anxiousness makes her paranoid, it is a vicious cycle, it impacts everything she does.

This also includes her relationship with her teenage children, who she is incredibly protective about, but tends to smother them with love as she is terrified something will happen to them, just like it did with her brother, when she accidentally killed him in a stupid kids game gone wrong.

On the 20th anniversary of her brotherโ€™s death, Rachel starts getting mysterious texts from an unknown number, and objects in her house seem to have been moved around.

And then the murders start happening, the victims being some of the people that were with her that fateful day 20 years ago.

I really enjoyed this twisty psychological thriller, that had lots of twists and turns at every angle, prepare to have this face while speed reading your way through this one ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ต

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง

Narrated brilliantly by Christa Lewis who did an amazing job, I will certainly be looking out for more books narrated by her.

Enjoy,

Twenty years ago, Rachel Gaston accidentally shot and killed her brother in a teenage game that went horribly wrong.
Today, Rachel is trying to put the guilt of what happened behind her. But her horrifying dreams about that night continue to stalk her.
As the anniversary of her brother’s death nears, Rachel feels her imagination playing tricks, convincing her that objects in her house have moved. That there’s a hint of unfamiliar cologne in the air. That someone is tailing her car. Watching her home.
Rachel has never known the truth about that night. But as connections surface between a new string of murders and Luke’s death, she realises there’s no escaping the past, and the truth may be darker than her worst fears.

Dear Wife by Kimberly Belle @KimberlySBelle @HarlequinBooks @parkrowbooks #BookReview #DearWife #KimberlyBelle

Hello my lovely reading buddies,

I’m so excited to share my review for this super awesome, twisty little mind f*@K of a book.

My review is going to be short and sweet, and that’s because I want you to go in as blind as you can with this one, and I don’t want to be the cause of any spoilery shenanigans!

My Thoughts

๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ…ฟ ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ท๐Ÿ…ด ๐Ÿ…ผ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†ˆ ๐Ÿ…ถ๐Ÿ…พ ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ†„๐Ÿ…ฝ๐Ÿ…ณ ๐Ÿ…ธ ๐Ÿ††๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ฝ๐Ÿ†ƒ ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…พ ๐Ÿ…ถ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†ƒ ๐Ÿ…พ๐Ÿ…ต๐Ÿ…ต

This is going to be a tricky one to review without giving away any spoilers.

I would say, except for obviously reading this review, you should definitely think about going in blind with this one, otherwise it may spoil it for you.

Prepare for some twists and turns and 180 spins with this little cracker of a Thriller, you wonโ€™t know whatโ€™s gonna hit you!!

I was sucked into the storyline and couldnโ€™t put the darn thing down, and the only little snippets of information that Iโ€™m going to give you my little lovelies is thisโ€ฆโ€ฆ

  1. An Abusive Husband
  2. A Woman on the Run
  3. Cat & Mouse

I know itโ€™s a bit of a crappy review, but youโ€™re intrigued now right?

๐ŸŽง๐ŸŽง

Narration was amazing, Vivienne Leheny, Chris Andrew Ciulla and Pete Simonelli did an incredible job at bringing this book to life, I was stunned many times throughout.

GRAB THIS ONE ASAP

Youโ€™re Welcome ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Enjoy

Beth Murphy is on the run….
For nearly a year, Beth has been planning for this day. A day some people might call any other Wednesday, but Beth prefers to see it as her new beginning – one with a new look, new name, and new city. Beth has given her plan significant thought, because one small slip and her violent husband will find her.
Sabine Hardison is missing….
A couple hundred miles away, Jeffrey returns home from a work trip to find his wife, Sabine, is missing. Wherever she is, she’s taken almost nothing with her. Her abandoned car is the only evidence the police have, and all signs point to foul play.
As the police search for leads, the case becomes more and more convoluted. Sabine’s carefully laid plans for her future indicate trouble at home and a husband who would be better off with her gone. The detective on the case will stop at nothing to find out what happened and bring this missing woman home. Where is Sabine? And who is Beth? The only thing that’s certain is that someone is lying, and the truth won’t stay buried for long.

Rewind by Catherine Ryan Howard @cathryanhoward @AtlanticBooks #RewindBook #Netgalley #BookReview

Good morning Bibliophiles, I hope you are all feeling wonderful today?

I am so pleased to bring you a review for a book that quite literally had my head spinning!

cover163741-medium

My Thoughts

๐Ÿ†‚๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…ฒ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ†‚ ๐Ÿ…ป๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†‚ย ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ฝ๐Ÿ…ณ ๐Ÿ†…๐Ÿ…ธ๐Ÿ…ณ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ…พย ๐Ÿ†ƒ๐Ÿ…ฐ๐Ÿ…ฟ๐Ÿ…ด

Take a little piece of Pulp Fiction,ย add in a Dash of Memento flavoured withย Fatal Attraction, and thenย stir in a littleย drop of Psycho.

Add your “Liquid Hell” to your cocktail shaker,ย  pop in a few ice cubes and shake that sucker until your head explodes!

This is the book that makes you go “Wait…Whaaa”

The story is so cleverly written, it is just as you would be watching a murder mystery on a VHS,ย but you really want to get to the good parts, you stop the video, rewind,ย watch a little bit, decide that’s not the part that you wanted. Rewind again, nope still not it,ย perhaps it was further on than you thought? Maybe try fast-forwarding, nope not it, rewind it again…..

STOP…

PLAY…

PAUSE….

WHAT…IS…THAT??

Each chapter gives you a snippet, but not enough, and you just have to keep on reading!

Some truly unlikable characters in this story but what a great story it was.

Natalie is what we would now call an Influencer,ย she is an Instagram star.

She’s made lots of money and has used this to pay for a new house that her and her husband haveย movedย inย to.

So why would she just pick up and leave her somewhat perfect life, and book herself intoย some randomย holiday cottage in the middle of nowhere with a creepy manager?

The book starts at the end of the tape, and this tape is what someone is watching when a womanย is brutally murdered while asleepย inย bed, someone is watching a live feed from a secret camera in the room

A murder, caught on camera,ย You’ve already missed the start. To get the full picture you must rewind the tape and play it through to the end, no matter how shocking…

A very clever thriller that will keep you turning the pages.

**Thank you to Atlantic Books, Netgalley and the Author for a copy of this book**

Enjoy the madness

The Chain by Adrian McKinty @adrianmckinty @orionbooks #TheChain #Bookreview #Netgalley

Oohh I think all of you thriller lovers are going to LOVE this one!!

Hello from a surprisingly sunny UK, the sun is out, and because it doesn’t happen very often, we don’t know what to do with ourselves LOL.

So here I am to bring you a review for this little cracker of a thriller, that will keep you on the edge of your seat, right until the very end!

Why Did You Pick It Up Vicci?

Well, I was doing my usual picking-too-many-to-read-and-review-in-time choices on NetGalley (As you do!) and I read the blurb to this one, and I just couldn’t pass it by, it sounded fantastic, and just up my street.

๐•‹๐•™๐•’๐•Ÿ๐•œ ๐•ช๐• ๐•ฆ ๐•ฅ๐•  ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•– ๐”ธ๐•ฆ๐•ฅ๐•™๐• ๐•ฃ, โ„•๐•–๐•ฅ๐”พ๐•’๐•๐•๐•–๐•ช ๐•’๐•Ÿ๐•• ๐•†๐•ฃ๐•š๐• ๐•Ÿ โ„™๐•ฆ๐•“๐•๐•š๐•ค๐•™๐•š๐•Ÿ๐•˜ ๐•—๐• ๐•ฃ ๐•ž๐•ช ๐•”๐• ๐•ก๐•ช ๐• ๐•— ๐•ฅ๐•™๐•š๐•ค ๐•“๐• ๐• ๐•œ

My Thoughts

๐”ป๐• ๐•Ÿ๐•ฅ ๐•—๐• ๐•ฃ๐•˜๐•–๐•ฅ ๐•ฅ๐•  ๐•“๐•ฃ๐•–๐•’๐•ฅ๐•™๐•–!!

Let’s play a game of “Would you rather” …….

Would you rather be a victim, or an abuser?

What if you had to be both?

This is what Rachel is dealing with. After dropping her daughter off at the bus stop, as she does every morning, she gets a call from a woman, the woman explains that she has kidnapped her daughter Kylie and she will only get her back by following just a few simple rules, if these rules are not followed, she will kill her.

  1. No authorities, and no police!
  2. Pay a ransom…….. a staple in a kidnapping right?
  3. Kidnap a child…….are you intrigued now?
  4. Call that child’s parents and give them the same information that you are getting right now.
  5. Hold that kidnapped child somewhere, until the parents of the child have paid the ransom, and also kidnapped another child…….I can see your eyebrows raising!
  6. Until all of the above have been completed, Kylie will be held.
  7. And here is the kicker!! – After Rachel has followed the rules above, the child of the woman on the phone will be released!

And so on, and so on…

Welcome friends, to The Chain

You see, what is so clever about this book, is that it plays on the “what would you do for your child” part of you, and because you are there with Rachel all of the way, it makes you think ‘what would I do’?

Would I do anything to protect my child? Abso-bloody-lutely, but the thought of putting another parent through the same trauma as you are going through right now is just heartbreaking. And you know that when you get told they will kill your child, you believe them, because their own child is at risk too!

You’ll never look at one of those silly chain letters again!!

Grab this one when it is released on 9th July

You’re Welcome ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mine by Courtney Cole @Court_Writes @gallerybooks #bookreview #Mine

Happy Wednesday evening!

Excited to share with you today my review for this book that I could not put down! This was a wild and crazy ride from first page to last and I loved it!๐ŸŒŠ

My Thoughts

แด€สŸสŸ แด€ส™แดแด€ส€แด… แด›สœแด‡ แด„ส€แด€แดขส แด›ส€แด€ษชษด!

Courtney Cole! Yes! Girl! Yes! Hell have no fury like a woman scorned! So what happens when there are two? Well batten down those hatches or in this case those hurricane shutters. This was one wild and crazy storm of emotion! Tessa finds herself home alone in the middle of a hurricane, she is unable to find her iPad so she grabs her husbands. And what does she find? Messages of a suggestive nature from another woman. So what does she do? Messages her back pretending to be her husband and invites The other woman over.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป itโ€™s not long before Lindsay shows up and that is when the fun begins!

Oh how I love a book about supposedly normal people behaving irrationally, impulsively, illogically, they SNAP! I have to admit in this book Tessa had all my support, I completely understood why she snapped! I mean seriously what would you do in the same situation? Now in general Iโ€™d say you should blame your spouse rather than the other person, but he was in New York at the time. Whatโ€™s a girl to do? So while the wind raged outside the house Tessa raged inside. Tessa was a sympathetic and likable character, you learned a lot about her backstory. I had a lot of respect for her as a woman and as a mother. Lindsay on the other hand, letโ€™s just say my opinion of Lindsay was the same as Tessaโ€™s from beginning to end. The story was told from both womenโ€™s perspectives and I thought that gave us such insight into the full story. And what about the husband Ethan? Well I have one word for him… dog! Actually thatโ€™s kind of an insult to dogs.

This was a fast-paced addictive read that kept me gripped from first page to last. It was full of tension, Drama, and the perfect amount of crazy! If you like books that take you on a ride on the crazy train then… ALL ABOARD!๐Ÿš‚

*** Big thanks to Gallery for my gifted copy ***

About the Book

The USA Today and New York Times best-selling author of the โ€œraw, powerful, heart-wrenchingโ€ (Robyn Harding) Saving Beck delivers a riveting and heart-pounding story of a crumbling marriage rocked by an affair – as betrayal and jealousy begin to consume both wife and mistress, forever intertwining their fates. 
Heโ€™s mine. 
Thatโ€™s what both Tessa and Lindsey believe about Ethan. But after getting caught in an affair months ago, Ethan ended things with Lindsey in an attempt to win back his wife. Lindsey refuses to let go of the relationship so easily and begins stalking Tessa. Tessa, still shattered from Ethanโ€™s infidelity, finally hits her breaking point and snaps, devising a plan to lure Lindsey to her home one weekend when her husband is away. 
Told in alternating perspectives and set over the course of a weekend,
 Mine explores the emotional complexity of infidelity and its aftermath and what happens when those two scorned women finally meet face-to-face.

*** 1 Star for this blurb! This isn’t really how any of this happened at all, great book bad blurb! I should start rating all the blurbs!๐Ÿ˜‚

Saving Meghan by D. J. Palmer @StMartinsPress #bookreview #savingmegan

Happy Sunday all!

Excited to share with you my review for this book that kept me on my toes! I loved trying to figure out what was going on throughout this engaging story!๐Ÿ’œ

My Thoughts

riveting. Tense. Consuming.

Wow! What a ride! This book kept me on my toes, kept me guessing, and then second-guessing. Iโ€™d imagine having a sick child would be devastating and having a sick child without a definitive diagnosis would be frustrating. Throughout this book I did feel for Becky, but in the back of my mind I kept thinking is this Munchausen by Proxy? Is she making her child sick? Is Megan really sick? Or is something else going on here? So many questions so few answers.

The book starts off with Becky on a plane to LA about to take off. When she receives a message from her husband that Megan is in the hospital becky demands her way off the plane. Medical exam after medical exam, test after test, and still no answers to what is wrong with Megan. Megan was once an active soccer star who excelled in school, now she is too tired to even make it to school most days. You know Megan is hiding things, keeping secrets, but does that have anything to do with her illness? Is it stress induced? Is it all in her head? Or is it really her mother who is causing all this? I truly had no idea, but boy oh boy did I want some answers!

This book had some pulse pounding moments, with some over-the-top antics. Admittedly this book wasnโ€™t always believable and sometimes I did question the judgment of the medical professionals and the parents, but for me none of that mattered because this was just so entertaining. I liked how it really kept you trying to guess the outcome until almost the bitter end. Even though I figured some of it out, I certainly did not figure it all out. Simply put this was an engaging story that kept me guessing. The ending was satisfying and the getting there was a lot of fun! 8/8

*** many thanks to St. Martinโ€™s Press for my copy of this book ***

About the Book

Can you love someone to death? 
Some would say Becky Gerard is a devoted mother and would do anything for her only child. Others, including her husband, Carl, claim she’s obsessed and can’t stop the vicious circle of finding a cure at her daughter’s expense. 
Fifteen-year-old Meghan has been in and out of hospitals with a plague of unexplained illnesses. But when the ailments take a sharp turn, clashing medical opinions begin to raise questions about the puzzling nature of Meghanโ€™s illness. Doctors suspect Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare behavioral disorder where the primary caretaker seeks medical help for made-up symptoms of a child. Is this what’s going on? Or is there something even more sinister at hand? 
As the Gerards grow more and more suspicious of each other and their medical team, Becky must race against time to prove her daughter has a deadly disease. But first, she must confront her darkest fears and family secrets that threaten to not only upend her once-ordered life…but to destroy it.

The Bone Collector by Jeffery Deaver (Lincoln Rhyme, #1) #Mystery #Thriller #Crime #AudiobookReview

Hello book friends,

A little Oldie-but-goldie review today, I keep meaning to read the rest of the series but keep getting distracted but other pretty books Lol

Why did you pick it  up Vicci? – Well it was an Audible Daily Deal so I thought ‘Why not!’ I’d already seen the movie about a hundred times so I was interested in how the book measured against it.

IntGdBN4_400x400

My Thoughts

WOAH this is sooo much better than the movie, and I loved the movie (I must have seen it 20 times)

Lincoln Rhyme is a forensic criminalist who is good as his job, brilliant in fact and was often called to help with crime scenes as he is the best…… was the best.

After a terrible accident Lincoln has ended up lying in a hospital bed and paralysed, now as a quadriplegic Lincoln can only dream of his old job, until he gets a visit from an old friend.

There has been a murder, a gruesome one at that, and the murderer has left clues to another one that is going to happen, the clues were found by Amelia Sachs, a street cop who is then paired with Rhymes to help solves these grizzly crimes.

Lincoln and Sachs are a good pairing, him in his bed talking Amelia through what he wants her to do.
He is also a very angry man who doesn’t want to live any more, and has arranged his own suicide, however the job seems to be getting his creative juices flowing again.

I liked the narration of this book and the gruesome murders were even more graphic when they are being spoken to you.

If you have seen the movie i would take it with a pinch of salt, it is completely different to the book, different murders, people, even the bad guy at the end is different.

So even though it is a brilliant movie, the book always does it better.

IntGdBN4_400x400

About the book

Lincoln Rhyme was once a brilliant criminologist, a genius in the field of forensics — until an accident left him physically and emotionally shattered. But now a diabolical killer is challenging Rhyme to a terrifying and ingenious duel of wits.

With police detective Amelia Sachs by his side, Rhyme must follow a labyrinth of clues that reaches back to a dark chapter in New York City’s past — and reach further into the darkness of the mind of a madman who won’t stop until he has stripped life down to the bone.

The Missing Wife by Sam Carrington @sam_carrington1 @AvonBooksUK @Netgalley #Thriller #ComingSoon

Hello my livres lovelies :o)

I super happy to be bringing you this cracking little thriller that will be coming to your Kindles in June 2019

Why did you pick it up Vicci?  – Really it was the first line of the synopsis, I was intrigued.

43351584

Imagine turning up to your own party, and recognising no one. Your best friend has just created your worst nightmare.

Doesn’t that just make you go ohhhh!!!

I really enjoyed this twisty little thriller, it had just enough of โ€œis it him or her?โ€ vibe to it to keep me on the edge of my seat.

Louisa is about to turn 40 and is a brand new mother, her little Noah was an unexpected surprise but she loves him fiercely, even though she is completely exhausted.

Louisa seems to have forgotten what it was like to be a new mother, considering her daughter is now a teenager, and all of the sleep deprivation seems to be taking a toll on her, she is forgetting things and huge parts of her day seem to go by without her even noticing.

It gets to the point where she even starts to forget to feed the baby!

Her best friend Tiff thinks she needs a bit of a pick-me-up, and arranges a surprise 40th birthday party for Louisa, because she doesnโ€™t speak much about her past Tiff is at a bit of a loss on who to invite, so she goes to the place where all your friends are, Facebook, and promptly invites all of Louisa’s old school friends.

And who should turn up out of the woodwork but Oliver, Louisaโ€™s old boyfriend and his new wife! He is super happy to see Louisa…. until he turns up at her house the next day to tell her that his wife is missing!

With twists and turns at every corner, you will be wondering who is telling the truth, and what secrets they are all hiding.

**With thanks to Netgalley, the publisher and the author for a copy of this book

About the book

The Missing Wife
By Sam Carrington
Avon Books UK
Pub Date 27 Jun 2019

Imagine turning up to your own party, and recognising no one. Your best friend has just created your worst nightmare.

Louisa is an exhausted, sleep-deprived new mother and, approaching her fortieth birthday, the very last thing she wants to do is celebrate.

But when her best friend Tiff organises a surprise party, inviting the entire list of Louโ€™s Facebook friends, sheโ€™s faced with a new source of anxiety altogether: a room full of old college classmates who she hasnโ€™t spoken to in twenty years. And one person in particular she never expected to see again is there โ€“ her ex-boyfriend from college, the handsome and charismatic Oliver Dunmore.

When Oliverโ€™s wife Melissa goes missing after the party, everyone remembers what happened that night differently. It could be the alcohol, but it seems more than one person has something to hide.

Louisa is determined to find the truth about what happened to Melissa. But just how far does she need to lookโ€ฆ?

One simple Facebook invitation unfolds into something both tragic and monstrous; a story of obsessive love, breath-taking deception and masterful manipulation.

The Night Visitors by Carol Goodman @C_Goodmania @WmMorrowBooks #bookreview #thenightvisitors

Happy Tuesday all!

Excited to share with you today my review for this intense thriller! I am featuring this book on Instagram today if you want to check it out follow my link below! But you can read my review right here right now!๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

My Thoughts

An Erie and atmospheric thriller.Brimming with tension and peppered with the supernatural!

Carol Goodman has crafted a creepy and addictive tale that will keep you up far past your bedtime. Unique and clever, this is a story you donโ€™t just read you experience. Miss Goodmans descriptive writing will have you shuttering and covered in goosebumps. The feeling of impending doom and the cold of the snow seep through the pages of this book.

There is an element of the Supernatural in this book that added the perfect amount of tension to the story.

Alice and Oren arrive in a small town in the Catskills by bus in the middle of the night. Mattie A complete stranger is waiting for them at the bus station. She works for an agency that finds placement for women and children fleaing domestic abuse. Mattie is immediately drawn to Oren, for that reason and the impending blizzard she takes them home with her rather than to the shelter. Mattie still lives in her family home, a once beautiful old Victorian now in need of much repair. The house was as much a character in the story as Mattie, Alice, and Oren. Each of these characters is hiding something and the truth might possibly put their lives in danger. Who can be trusted? And what will happen when the secrets are revealed?

A creepy house, a brutal snowstorm, intriguing characters, and dark secrets all make for a compelling story. I really liked both Alice and Mattie, But I was also suspicious of both of them throughout the book. Oren was an adorable kid and I loved his passion for Star Wars. I really wanted everything to work out for all these characters, I just wasnโ€™t quite sure what that was? I loved how the layers of this story were peeled away and the truth was eventually laid bare. Towards the end of this book I was seriously on the edge of my seat, the tension was palpable, and the results startling.

A cunning tale that was simultaneously creepy and heartwarming. A unique thriller packed with twists and turns and a shocking end!

*** many thanks to William morrow for my copy of this book ***

โ€œCarol Goodman is, simply put, a stellar writer.โ€ (Lisa Unger, New York Times best-selling author of The Red Hunter)
Alice gets off a bus in the middle of a snowstorm in Delphi, NY. She is fleeing an abusive relationship and desperate to protect Oren, 10 years old, a major Star Wars fan and wise beyond his years. Though Alice is wary, Oren bonds nearly instantly with Mattie, a social worker in her 50s who lives in an enormous, rundown house in the middle of the woods. 
Mattie lives alone and is always available, and so she is the person the hotline always calls when they need a late-night pickup. And although according to protocol, Mattie should take Alice and Oren to a local shelter, instead, she brings them home for the night. She has plenty of room, she says. What she doesn’t say is that Oren reminds her of her little brother, who died 30 years ago at the age of 10.
But Mattie isn’t the only one withholding elements of the truth. Alice is keeping her own secrets. And as the snowstorm worsens around them, each woman’s past will prove itself unburied, stirring up threats both within and without.
