Review: “Two Sisters” by Kerry Wilkinson

Rating: 4/5 stars

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and this book starts off with Megan and Chloe going to a cottage their parents had left them after passing away in a car accident. Megan remembers this place as the village where their brother, Zac, disappeared ten years before. 

Megan and Chloe come to the cottage because they were sent a postcard with the letter ‘Z’ on it. Megan thinks this is something to do with her brother. Odd things begin happening in the village like fights, fires, etc. which makes Megan believe the people of the village know what happened to her brother and they just aren’t saying. 

Megan digs deeper and eventually finds out the truth but not without putting herself and Chloe in danger. 

This book started a bit more slow than I would have liked. I didn’t much care for Megan’s character either but I did like that she was determined to find out the truth about her brother. 

Overall, it was a pretty great book. The plot kept me interested and guessing on what happened or was going to happen. Would recommend if you’re looking for a slow building thriller.

Review: Don’t Wake Up by Liz Lawler

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Where to start with this one? Well, the description really had me interested in this book and it didn’t let me down. 

I loved the storyline but I wasn’t a fan of how some of it was written. Other than that it was a very suspenseful thriller. 

It follows Alex Taylor after she’s been found in the parking lot of the hospital she works in. She tries to convince everyone that she had been abducted and that the murders that are taking place around her are caused by the same person who took her. 

This book will be published on May 18th, 2017 and I would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for a thriller.

Review: Hindsight

Rating: 4/5 stars

I have to say that I really enjoy books with a mix of paranormal, crime, and mystery in them. 
This is the first book in the Cass Lehman and Ed Dyson series by Melanie Casey. I thought this book was going to be more fast paced than it was but other than that it was a pretty good book. 

This book alternates between Cass Lehman and Ed Dyson. Cass is the one who can see and feel what happened in people’s last moments if they died violently. Ed is the detective that she seems out to offer her help for a case he’s working on. 

This was well written except that it could have used a bit more character backgrounds.

Review: The Breakdown

Rating: 4.5/5 stars

I read B.A. Paris’s first book “Behind Closed Doors” and enjoyed it but I honestly liked this one much more.

This starts off with Cass being on the phone with her husband, Matthew, as she’s getting ready to head home during a terrible storm. Matthew tells her not to take the shorter way home through Blackwater Lane but she does and everything changes the next morning as she wakes up and hears that a woman has been murdered on that road, the woman she saw as she drove through there the night before.

This book was honestly not what I expected and I mean that in a good way. I enjoyed “Behind Closed Doors” but this book was much better. It kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat until the end.

When I got to the last few chapters, the book had a total twist that I didn’t see coming. It made the book so much better. I would have honestly read this book in one sitting if work hadn’t gotten in my way.

If you want a compelling read, I definitely suggest this one.

Thank you to NetGalley for my copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
