The entangled pasts of two ruling class New England families come to light over three summer days on an island in Maine in this extraordinary debut novel.

I cannot even begin to imagine the pressure Paula Hawkins must have been in after the massive success of The Girl on the Train. It was such a huge hit that I could understand if she didn’t release a book after it. I mean, look at Gillian Flynn after Gone Girl and E.L. James after the Fifty Shades Series, the expectations from the public would be too much and certainly too hard to match. Continue reading

My Husband’s Wife was the debut novel by Jane Cory and I read it earlier this year. For a debut, it was not bad even though it didn’t leave me itching to turn the pages so fast.

I loved every minute of this amazingly crafted, sick and twisted book! I have tried to find the right words to say but I keep erasing everything because they all feel like I am not doing the book justice. J.D. Barker has done such a fantastic job with this one. Continue reading

Officer Miranda Rader is a well-respected officer in the Hammond, Louisiana police department. No one would have guessed that she had an unruly past and had even spent some time in juvenile detention. Fourteen years ago, a crime was committed against her and she was able to get away but she left behind somebody who needed help. The only problem was that her track record with law enforcement before that date had never been good and so they did not believe her when she reported the crime. Continue reading
