Little Secrets

Little Secrets is the latest novel of domestic suspense from author Jennifer Hillier, and I was blown away by its twistiness. On the surface, it's another in a very long line of thrillers centered around a missing child, but once you start reading, it doesn't take long to realize that Hillier has do ...

This Is How I Lied

Heather Gudenkauf has done it again! With This Is How I Lied, she reminds readers why she's one of the most popular writers of domestic thrillers around. Her latest novel is full of all the twists and turns a mystery lover could want without sacrificing plausibility. Twenty-five years earlier, th ...

The Split

Mysteries can be tricky, especially if you read a lot of them. You'll come across a book with a super appealing blurb, only to start reading something that feels overly familiar and trite. Certain tropes are overused, and it takes a really good author to be able to revitalise them. Fortunately, that ...

What It Seems

I have a good friend who loves the work of author Emily Bleeker, and she's been encouraging me to pick up one of her books for quite some time now. When I read the synopsis for Ms. Bleeker's latest novel What It Seems, I knew it was the perfect book for me. I read it in a single sitting, and I have ...

My Dark Vanessa

(There is a great deal of controversy over this book. To learn more about that, read this.) I picked up Kate Elizabeth Russell's My Dark Vanessa expecting a thriller about a woman's attempts to come to terms with the inappropriate relationship she had with her high school English teacher when she w ...

Unfollow Me

Charlotte Duckworth's Unfollow Me was originally published in the UK in the summer of 2019. It's a book I heard lots of positive things about, so I was pleased to learn it would be coming out in the US this spring. Violet Young is the kind of woman all suburban moms long to be. Her children are a ...

You Are Not Alone

The perfect pairing of Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen has stuck gold once again with the release of their third novel You Are Not Alone, cementing their place on my list of auto-buy authors. Their writing blends beautifully, making it impossible to tell who is responsible for creating which char ...

Unfollow Me

Unreliable narrators have been all the rage in the thriller market for the last decade and Charlotte Duckworth offers us a smorgasbord of instability in her new novel Unfollow Me. A cautionary tale about the dangers of social media and how interconnectedness can put us in touch with some people we d ...

Follow Me

Follow Me is Kathleen Barber's second novel, and it's every bit as delicious as her début. The story feels utterly believable, like the sort of thing you'd read about in your local newspaper, and after reading it, I'm not sure I'll view technology in quite the same light ever again. Some people ...

Behind Every Lie

Behind Every Lie is the second novel by Christina McDonald, and since I absolutely loved her 2019 release,The Night Olivia Fell, I was eager to give this one a try. It didn't end up hooking me in quite as much as her first book did, but it's a solid thriller in its own right. Eva and her mother K ...
