Thank you to #partner@harperbooks for gifting me this book! I flew through this one because I couldn’t put it down. It was so freaking good and such a great mystery/suspense book. I loved the main character Lizzie and felt she was easy to connect with which is always a plus when I feel a connection with the main character. @kimberlymccreightdid an amazing job with all the twist and turns in this story and completely surprised me with the ending. The last few pages had me biting my nails as all the truth was coming out! I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫.
Synopsis: Lizzie Kitsakis is working late when she gets the call. Grueling hours are standard at elite law firms like Young & Crane, but they’d be easier to swallow if Lizzie was there voluntarily. Until recently, she’d been a happily underpaid federal prosecutor. That job and her brilliant, devoted husband Sam—she had everything she’d ever wanted. And then, suddenly, it all fell apart. No. That’s a lie. It wasn’t sudden, was it? Long ago the cracks in Lizzie’s marriage had started to show. She was just good at averting her eyes. The last thing Lizzie needs right now is a call from an inmate at Rikers asking for help—even if Zach Grayson is an old friend. But Zach is desperate: his wife, Amanda, has been found dead at the bottom of the stairs in their Brooklyn brownstone. And Zach’s the primary suspect. As Lizzie is drawn into the dark heart of idyllic Park Slope, she learns that Zach and Amanda weren’t what they seemed—and that their friends, a close-knit group of fellow parents at the exclusive Brooklyn Country Day school, might be protecting troubling secrets of their own. In the end, she’s left wondering not only whether her own marriage can be saved, but what it means to have a good marriage in the first place.
Thank you to #partner@stmartinspress for gifting me this book. This is my first read by Michele Campbell. I started her book The Stranger on the Beach but never finished it. 😬 This book, I could not put down and I was hooked from the first page to the last. It took me on a wild ride and never knew where to look for the who done it. I really enjoyed the characters and all the secret and lies involved with them. If you want to read a great mystery suspense then definitely add this one to your book list! I haven’t read her previous book Stranger on Beach but have now added it to my tbr list! The Wife Who Knew Too Much will be out late July so be looking for it! I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.

This is the third book in the Will Trent series by Karin Slaughter and quite possibly my favorite in the series so far. I was hooked from the first page all the way to the last page. The book introduces a new character, Sara Linton, who works for in the trauma center at a hospital but has also been a coroner in her past and is grieving the loss of her husband. I really like her character, she seemed smart and didn’t let people walk over her. The story jumps right in from the beginning which I absolutely loved. This book is dark and twist with a serial killing hunting young, thin brunettes around the Atlanta area. Once again, Karin Slaughter leaves out no details so prepare yourself for squeamish moments and details. I give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Even if you don’t read the first two books, this book could almost be a stand alone book. I promise you won’t want to put it down.
In the backwoods of suburban Atlanta, where Sara’s patient was found, local police have set up their investigation. But Georgia Bureau of Investigation detective Will Trent doesn’t wait for the go-ahead from his boss—he plunges through police lines, through the brooding woods, and single-handedly exposes a hidden house of horror buried beneath the earth. Then he finds another victim.… Wresting the case away from the local police chief, Will and his partner, Faith Mitchell—a woman keeping explosive secrets of her own—are called into a related investigation. Another woman—a smart, upscale, independent young mother—has been snatched. For the two cops out on the hunt, for the doctor trying to bring her patient back to life, the truth hits like a hammer: the killer’s torture chamber has been found, but the killer is still at work. In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves together the moving, powerful human stories of characters as real as they are complex and unforgettable. At the same time she has crafted a work of dazzling storytelling and spine-tingling mystery—as three people, each with their own wounds and their own secrets, are all that stands between a madman and his next crime.
This will be one of my favorite books this year. It was a beautiful story. The top two words I’d use to describe Where the Crawdads Sing would be moving and emotional. This is a book that you finish but it stays with you for days and weeks after reading. It’s one that I could easily re-read because I want to go through the story again. You feel for the main character Kya because she grows up alone, abandoned by her mother, with her father who drinks his life away. She doesn’t trust people because of how she has been treated but she teaches herself how to live and feel things. She grows up in the marshes and it becomes a big part of her life. I would give this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️, and would give it more than five stars if I could. I recommend this book to all my friends, family and strangers :).
Synopsis: The story is set in the 1950s and revolves around a young woman named Kya Clark, who is from extremely rural North Carolina. Known by others as the Marsh Girl, she lives alone in nature—but the draw of other people, and specifically love, brings her into contact with the greater world.
