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

When I saw that she has a new book coming up I got excited and even more excited when I received an ARC, which I am thankful for. Continue reading

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
