Wow! This book was amazing! It’s an emotional, mysterious, murderous, infuriating, and moving story. Get ready for a rollercoaster of emotions. I need to go back and read all of Ellen Marie Wiseman’s other books now!

After her mother passed away, Sage was left all alone with her deadbeat step-father, and now she’s on her own to find out what happened to Rosemary. Except when she gets to Willowbrook, she’s mistaken for Rosemary, and ends up as a patient.
This book was a really good read, but I did have some struggles with it. It’s still a 4 star read for me, but The Last Thing to Burn was so outstanding, and this did not quite live up to that. It’s still a solid thriller, and it will entertain you all the way through.
Molly and Katie are twins. When Katie is found dead, Molly travels from Europe to America to find out what happened.
I thought this was a pretty fast-paced story! It really starts off with a bang, and I couldn’t stop reading after that!
I really enjoyed the characters, and the situations. I enjoyed the location of the story in NY. It’s a bit gritty, which made it feel pretty darn real! I thought that the story was well-written, and quite captivating.
I absolutely love a murder mystery where the MC is suspected of the murder! I enjoy the sleuthing skills that are used to (hopefully) clear their name!
Lucy lives with her aging mother who is suffering from a terminal illness. While Lucy spends her days taking care of her mother, her brother spends his days as a rockstar. When a sinkhole reveals the skeleton of an old band member, Lucy becomes the prime suspect!
This is a story that builds layer upon layers of suspense that have you twisted tight like a spring as you wait to find out what is going to happen! I loved the secrets and the heart-pounding tension!
This story focuses on Iris, a single mother, wo has the chance to watch over a secluded hunting lodge.

As she gets settled into the lodge with her young child, she starts to hear calls from a walkie-talkie. Someone is trying to torment her about her past…
I am a sucker for a secluded setting where people start getting murdered, so I knew this was one I wanted to read!
A seemingly random group of social influencers are invited to a pre-opening event at a secluded island getaway…(think Fyre Festival). When they get to the island, they find themselves alone and without any of the amenities they thought they would have. The rooms are a mess, the food is…limited…and then people start dying.
Wow, this book was so full of things happening, and I loved it! This is a historical mystery follows Lena Aldridge, a young nightclub singer. When her boss is poisoned and dies in front of her, and it looks like she could have done it. As she travels from London to New York City, she tries to figure out who is the actual murderer.
Jennifer Hillier continues to surprise me with her detailed storylines, compelling characters, and fantastic plots! Things We Do in the Dark is a story woven between the current time and the early years of the main character. It was a fantastic story, and I would recommend it for domestic suspense readers!
Paris Peralta has a past, and she hopes to always keep it separated from her current life. When she finds her famous husband dead in the bathtub, and the police find her in what looks like a murdering position, she’s thrown into the spotlight. With her face in every media avenue, her past smashes into her present, and we’re along for the ride!
Well, this was a very disappointing read, and a generous 3-star rating. I am such a huge fan of Riley Sager, but this book…I think we have to talk about this book in two sections because they were two completely different things.
The first half of the book is completely a The Woman in the Window story. I mean drunk woman, unreliable narrator, binoculars to spy on neighbors, secrets untold…It’s the same story, and I just wasn’t interested in it. I was a bit tired of the drink, spy, phone call, pass out, and repeat story line (TBH I felt the same way with The Woman in the Window).
But then, the story takes a new, and surprising turn in the second half…It didn’t get better though.
This book is a sequel to Finding Ruby Draker, and I would highly recommend you read that one before starting Shadows in the Aftermath. I think it could be read as a stand-alone, but a lot of exciting things happened in the first book, and you won’t want to miss it!
Well, this book was fan-freaking-tastic! I loved the high-level action and energy right from the beginning! It’s got some twists, some secrets and some great storytelling!
Told through the alternating perspectives of a husband and a wife, we start the story with the husband’s discovery that his wife and two children are missing from their hotel room. He’s convinced they have been kidnapped because his son’s teddy bear was left behind. We follow him as he works with the hotel and police to discover that it looks like his wife left voluntarily. He partners with one officer to help find her. From his wife’s perspective, we jump between present-day and the past to unravel a web of stories that create an un-put-downable read!
