Things We Do in the Dark by Jennifer Hillier. 🌟 Arc Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!

Wow! Right from the start I was hooked. It started with a shock and the twists just kept coming. I can honestly say that I did not know the reality of everything until the very end. And, I couldn’t even have guessed right if I tried.

Paris is a yoga instructor married to an older, rich and famous man. But when she comes home early from a conference, she finds him dead. And, of course, she is suspect number one. Nothing is exactly as it seems and I was shocked by the ending.

Definitely recommend this for an intense thriller!

TW: child abuse including sexual assault. Suicide.

One of the Girls by Lucy Clarke 🌟 ARC Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

I’m just going to say it: This is a must-read for thriller lovers!!! It was more than just a thriller while keeping me on the edge of my seat and guessing at every new chapter.

Six friends go on a hen weekend to celebrate a bride to be in a beautiful villa on the gorgeous seaside cliffs of Greece. However, they have no idea what is in store for them. What each singular person brings as her past, her present, her future, that can bring about all kinds of drama when they learn of each other’s secrets.

I loved the emotion in this book. I was so suspicious of every character. Sometimes hating them but then there would be a twist and I could somehow relate. And, then, that ending!! It’s brilliant. And, I want to add that the last line in the book was the absolute perfect ending.

Highly recommend!

The House Across the Lake by Riley Sager 🌟 ARC Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

Wow! Riley Sager is my favorite thriller author, so I always have high expectations when reading one of this author’s books. But this story went so above and beyond my expectations that I simply can’t believe it!

Casey is a star of the screen and stage, but unfortunately her career has taken a dive which is why she finds herself secluded in her family lake house on Lake Greene. While boozing away her time there, Casey has a curious encounter with a neighbor and this is when things start getting really interesting!

I thought to myself so many times that I knew how this would end but from major twist to major twist I realized I needed just to sit back and enjoy the ride. I highly recommend this!

The Favor by Nora Murphy 🌟 ARC Review 🌟

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this incredible arc!!!

Wow! This was so intense! Exactly what I want out of a revenge-like thriller which is what this basically is.

Two women, absolutely controlled by their husband’s, are able to somewhat help each other in the most fierce way possible. Their husband’s look great to the outside world, like so many abusers do. And, when I speak of abusers, it’s with the knowledge that anybody, any gender, any person, can be an abuser. And, abuse can come in many forms. In this case, it is control. These women live such similar lives and really do not know each other. However, that does not stop them from seeing each other’s common reality and taking steps to stop it from happening.

I definitely recommend this one!

Out May 31st!

TW for abusive situations, death and alcohol abuse.

🌟 Arc Review 🌟 Magpie by Elizabeth Day

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!

I love a good thriller! And, this was perfect especially because it included so much more than just thrills and chills!

Marisa finally finds somebody that she feels comfortable enough to start a life with. Jake seems like a great guy, however, nothing is exactly how it seems at first. This is something that I quickly understood as the author starts outlining the characters in the beginning of the story.

The happy couple move in together and fairly quickly realize they will need to take on a lodger to help pay the bills. Kate joins the household, a little too comfortably in Marisa’s opinion. When Marisa becomes pregnant the story really takes on some interesting twists.

This wasn’t like the usual thrillers I read because there was such an intense sense of hope bound to this story. Definitely a lot of intriguing pieces to put together and more than what I would typically expect.

Definitely recommend this!
Out May 3rd!

🌟 Arc Review 🌟 The Agathas by Kathleen Glasgow and Liz Lawson

Thank you Netgalley and Publisher for this incredible arc!!

I loved this book. I adored every second.

Alice is rich, with rich famous parents, parents who are never around. And, after the chaotic events surrounding Alice last summer, nobody else really wants to be around either. Iris is a student at the same school but from the other side of town… the not rich at all side. So when she is offered 3000 dollars to tutor Alice, Iris goes for it. Neither girl expecting to solve a crime or, even weirder, to become friends.

This book was so exciting and really… loveable. A very thrilling read. There were some serious issues, TW for domestic violence and assault.

Out on May 3rd!

Dark Circles by Caite Dolan-Leach

Thank you netgalley and Publisher for this Arc!!

This was a chilling read for me and it genuinely creeped me out.

A young actress goes to stay at a wellness center after a very public meltdown. And she then winds up creating a podcast about this center which seems to hold many secrets!

This story was addictive and pulled me along easily. It was a fun, quick read that left me with goosebumps. I love a twisty thriller and this filled that role perfectly for me!

Out April 26th!

🌟 Arc Review 🌟 The Lying Club by Annie Ward!

Thank you Netgalley for this Arc!

This mystery/thriller was incredible! I loved the whole set up. Natalie works at the front desk of a high school that is known for it’s sports department and the entitled teens that go there. Natalie has an interesting past so when things become derailed at the school with a certain staff member, she becomes a suspect in a crime.

Going between Natalie’s police interview and the start of everything to the explosive ending was the perfect way to tell this story. It’s fast-paced and intense. I definitely recommend This!

Look for this on March 22nd!

🌟 Arc Review 🌟 The Ravenous Dead by Darcy Coates!

Thank you Netgalley for this wonderful arc!

This book and this series has such a great vibe to it. I feel so at home reading this horror, murder/mystery style book. It’s the perfect series to curl up with at night and enjoy a glass of wine or cup of tea or whatever! Your beverage of choice, ya’ll.

The small town fills with gossip as Keira becomes more well known, for better or worse (but mostly better). She is living in a cabin by the graveyard and trying to use her abilities to help the ghosts pass on. Things quickly escalate when not only does she find an evil ghostly presence near the graveyard, but also when her past comes back to haunt her threatening to take away her new life.

I love the friendship between Keira, Zoe and Mason. Zoe cracks me up with her conspiracy theories and Mason is endearing with his calm and caring attitude. This book gave me everything I need; thrills, chills and laughs and love. I definitely recommend this series!

Out March 15th!

🌟Arc Review 🌟 The Match by Harlan Coben!

Thank you Netgalley for this Arc!

Harlan Coben is a masterful storyteller and this was another terrific read. The Match carries on the tale of Wilde. Wilde is a man with a mysterious past but in this sequel the threads of his history have begun to be pulled apart. I loved the revelations about this character and the connections he seems to be embracing more in this book.

Of course, this was also a complete thrill-ride full of suspence and action! I loved the fast pace of the book and I consumed it in one sitting. I definitely recommend this series and this author!

Look for this on March 15th!
