Book Beginning:

Lily pulled her coat closer against the crisp night air. Her cheeks stung, the skin tight from the cold.

Many people would feel uneasy walking alone after midnight down these streets. Lily did not. She knew her hometown well, and when her insomnia kept her awake, she hit the streets. After two years of these late-night walks, she felt comfortable walking alone.

What do you think of Lily so far? She’s braver that I am!

Lily felt paralysed. 

Eric got  up, flipped the man over and took the dagger out of his chest.

“That’s going to stain,” Dimitri said, as he watched blood pool onto the rug. “What a waste of perfect blood.” He sighed.

You gotta love that line “That’s going to stain”!

Here’s the blurb from Amazon:

Lily Myers is living an ordinary life until she meets Quinn Carter. When Quinn turns out to be a century-old vampire, Lily is thrust into a reality where she’s an unwilling believer. But as her fear fades and her curiosity wins out, she finds herself falling for Quinn and learning more about this new world. From hunting down a vampire killer to meeting werewolves, Lily’s life has definitely taken a turn…but whether it’s for the worse or better, she’s still finding out.

Huckabee asked, “You need to sit down?”

“I need answers.” Claire knew that she sounded crazy. “My father-in-law, Gerald Scott. You’re sure that he’s dead?”

Hmmmm…The plot thickens! Why would she suspect a her dead father would actually be alive?

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

#1 internationally bestselling author Karin Slaughter returns with a sophisticated and chilling psychological thriller of dangerous secrets, cold vengeance, and unexpected absolution, in which two estranged sisters must come together to find truth about two harrowing tragedies, twenty years apart, that devastate their lives.

Sisters. Strangers. Survivors.

More than twenty years ago, Claire and Lydia’s teenaged sister Julia vanished without a trace. The two women have not spoken since, and now their lives could not be more different. Claire is the glamorous trophy wife of an Atlanta millionaire. Lydia, a single mother, dates an ex-con and struggles to make ends meet. But neither has recovered from the horror and heartbreak of their shared loss—a devastating wound that’s cruelly ripped open when Claire’s husband is killed.

The disappearance of a teenage girl and the murder of a middle-aged man, almost a quarter-century apart: what could connect them? Forming a wary truce, the surviving sisters look to the past to find the truth, unearthing the secrets that destroyed their family all those years ago . . . and uncovering the possibility of redemption, and revenge, where they least expect it.

Powerful, poignant, and utterly gripping, packed with indelible characters and unforgettable twists, Pretty Girls is a masterful thriller from one of the finest suspense writers working today.

Pretty Girls is an incredibly suspenseful story that totally and completely drew me in.  It is told from the perspective of a family who suffered a tragic loss and trying to save themselves at the same time. A powerful read  with phenomenal writing.

Be warned that this book isn’t for everyone. Some may find this book disturbing. There are acts of horrendous violence against women.

Have you read this book? What were your thoughts on it? If you haven’t read it, would you, knowing the violence that is portrayed?

Thanks for reading and Happy Weekend!

This week I’m highlighting The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn.

the woman in the windowBlurb from Goodreads:

Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.

What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.

Her husband’s almost home. He’ll catch her this time.

What a way to start off!

The Friday 56

 

Down in the kitchen, drops of rain popping against the window, I pour more merlot into a tumbler. A long swig. I needed that.

Focus.

What do I know now that I didn’t know before? Alistair kept his work and home lives separate. Consistent with the profile of many violent offenders, but otherwise not useful. 

I finished this book the other day. I enjoyed it, very much, actually! I found it dragged in parts. The main character drinks a lot of wine and is heavily medicated –obviously an unreliable narrator!

It’s definitely worth reading to the end. Love the ending!

What do you think? Have you read this one? Would this book appeal to you?

It’s Friday! The Couple Next Door by Shari Lapena

Blurb from Goodreads:

It all started at a dinner party. . .

A domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors–a twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives. . .

Anne and Marco Conti seem to have it all–a loving relationship, a wonderful home, and their beautiful baby, Cora. But one night when they are at a dinner party next door, a terrible crime is committed. Suspicion immediately focuses on the parents. But the truth is a much more complicated story.

Inside the curtained house, an unsettling account of what actually happened unfolds. Detective Rasbach knows that the panicked couple is hiding something. Both Anne and Marco soon discover that the other is keeping secrets, secrets they’ve kept for years.

What follows is the nerve-racking unraveling of a family–a chilling tale of deception, duplicity, and unfaithfulness that will keep you breathless until the final shocking twist.

Anne can feel the acid churning in her stomach and creeping up her throat; her head is swimming. She’s had too much to drink. Cynthia has been topping her up all night. Anne had meant to deep herself to a limit, but she’d let things slide–she didn’t know how else she was supposed to get through the evening. Now she has no idea how much wine she’s drunk over the course of this interminable dinner party. She’ll have to pump and dump her breast milk in the morning.

The interminable dinner party. What could possibly go wrong?

“No.”

“Then you don’t know how exhausting they can be.”

“No.” He shifts his own position in the chair. They are all getting tired. “What time did you go next door to the party?” Rasbach asks.

It’s Friday: One’s Aspect to the Sun by Sherry D. Ramsey

One's Aspect

Blurb from Goodreads: Captain Luta Paixon of the far trader Tane Ikai needs to know why she looks like a woman in her thirties–even though she’s actually eighty-four. She isn’t the only one desperate for that information.

 

The explanation might lie with her geneticist mother, who disappeared over sixty years ago, but even if her mother is still alive, it’s proving to be no small task to track her down in the vast, wormhole-ridden expanse of Nearspace. With the ruthless PrimeCorp bent on obtaining Luta’s DNA at any cost, her ninety-year-old husband asking for one last favor, and her estranged daughter locking horns with her at every turn, Luta’s search for answers will take her to the furthest reaches of space–and deep inside her own heart.

“Luta, we’re about an hour from Earth. It looks good if the Captain’s on the bridge when we dock.” Rei’s cheerful voice woke me over the Tane Ikai’s comm circuit. The dream faded slowly, fragments lingering in my mind like wisps of nebulae. It’s always the same dream, when we near a planet.

The intruder moved away, back toward the hatchway, although all of this happened in a fraction of the time it takes to tell it.

It’s Friday: Aggravated Momentum by Didi Oviatt

The blurb from Goodreads: Not everything is as it seems in what appears to be an average family. When danger lurks so close to home, skeletons emerge, and the darkest of secrets surface, causing twisted desires to become reality. Aggravated Momentum offers the perspective of some very diverse and unique characters, including fun, witty personalities to fall in love with, along with an intellectual killer to die for. You may be surprised as to whom exactly you can relate. Is it the cold, calculated murderer, who’s name is yet to be revealed? Markie or Kam, the independent sisters, guilty of nothing more than getting tangled with the wrong people at the most inopportune times? Or, the cowardly snake curled in a hidden corner? Who are you, exactly? And, more importantly, who are they? The deeper you dig into the psyche of another, the more breath taking are the secrets you will find.

Holy twisty turns! What a book! I will post the review in the next couple of days, but I wanted to share with you a little piece of Aggravated Momentum! Also, please check out Didi’s blog here! She is an amazing writer, and if you enjoy suspense you will love her books!

My hands are as far above my head as they can reach, my back intensely arched, and my calf muscles tighten, extending to the footboard. My pumpkin orange painted toes point as they join the stretch. The sun beams through a tight crevice in the drapes, challenging my eyes to regain vision. I squint and strain to open them. It’s late afternoon, and I’ve been sleeping for four hours. Sadly, it’s the most uninterrupted sleep my taxing life has allowed in over a week.

It’s Friday: Rise of the Mudmen

Rise of the Mudmen by James FW Thompson

Blurb from Amazon: Alex used to believe that bad things didn’t happen on sunny days…but now he knows better. On an otherwise normal October day, his neighborhood becomes a place of horror. Missing parents, a chaotic evacuation and a school in flames are only the beginning of a nightmarish world overrun by bloodthirsty creatures–creatures who were once neighbours, friends, and family. Thrown together by chance with no adults coming to their rescue, Alex, Nicole, David and Kaitlyn must rely on themselves and each other to survive. As they struggle to defend themselves, create a safe haven, and learn to work together, they discover that there’s more than one kind of enemy…and that sometimes the worst ones come from within… Set in Cape Breton in 1986, Rise of the Mudmen will take you back to a time that never was.

I was so excited to read this book! It is set in the year a graduated from high school, in the city I grew up in! It has a YA flavour to the writing, and there are some pretty gory parts. Review to follow, but I wanted to share some excerpts to give you a taste of this apocalyptic novel.

The story starts off with description of creatures (we aren’t told what exactly) chasing a female in the forest, which turns out to be part of a TV show. I’ll jump in just after that part and get right into the story.

Just as suddenly as it began, it was over with a quick flip of the dial.

“Hey,” Alex said, “I was watching that!”

Shadow, his black lab, woke up with a jerk at the sudden noise, Alex had hoped she might take more of an interest in her canine relatives, but evidently the show was too long for her.

“Yeah, I noticed,” his dad replied. “But it’s supper time, and I don’t want you getting any ideas.”

Occasionally people were released and sent through the tunnel to the Colby side. They came wrapped in splints, or with fresh stitches, or just bandaged and were sent to the sleeping areas that, earlier that day, had been elementary classrooms.

“Wow,” David said flatly. “You are really going to figure this all out for us, huh? My hero.”

The Last Place You Look by Kristen Lepionka

I just picked this up at the library tonight and plan to start it in the next couple of days.  I found it on one of the blogs I follow, but I can’t remember whose blog it is!  Sorry!

 

Here’s the Book Beginning:

“Matt said you found things.  For a living,” the woman said on the phone.

I was lying on the carpet underneath my desk.  I’d only answered the call to make the shrill ringing stop.  The inside of my mouth tasted like whipped cream and whiskey, and the sound of my breathing was like a roaring thunderstorm in my head, but at least I was alone and in my own apartment. “That’s right,” I said.

“What kind of things?” Her tone was suspicious, like her main objective was to debunk whatever my oldest brother told her.

“Objects.  People. Answers. Whatever needs to be found.”

“You good at it?”

I hadn’t worked much in the last nine months and didn’t want to start now. But my bank balance had other ideas.

Here’s a blurb from page 56:

In the light of day, I could see that whoever had gotten into my car last night must have used a slim jim or a coat hanger.  The weather stripping at the bottom of the window was ripped and the blue paint on my door was faintly scratched.  Better than a brick through the glass, but it still pissed me off.

On top of that, I didn’t quite know what my next move should be on Brad Stockton. So far there were three votes for Brad Stockton’s innocence, two maybes on the unnamed dog owner, on strange encounter with the Belmont cops, but zero corroboration for Danielle’s claim that the woman she saw was Sarah.

 

What do you think?

Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:

Sarah Cook, a beautiful blonde teenager disappeared fifteen years ago, the same night her parents were brutally murdered in their suburban Ohio home. Her boyfriend Brad Stockton – black and from the wrong side of the tracks – was convicted of the murders and sits on death row, though he always maintained his innocence. With his execution only weeks away, his devoted sister, insisting she has spotted Sarah at a local gas station, hires PI Roxane Weary to look again at the case.

Reeling from the recent death of her cop father, Roxane finds herself drawn to the story of Sarah’s vanishing act, especially when she thinks she’s linked Sarah’s disappearance to one of her father’s unsolved murder cases involving another teen girl. Despite her self-destructive tendencies, Roxane starts to hope that maybe she can save Brad’s life and her own.

With echoes of Sue Grafton, Dennis Lehane and the hit podcast Serial, The Last Place You Look is the gripping debut of both a bold new voice and character.

Sounds good, doesn’t it?  I’m excited to start this one!  Have you read it?  What are you reading now?

To Catch a Killer by Sheryl Scarborough


I’m a little more than half way through this YA.  It’s not too bad, I’m intrigued by what is going on with the murders.  I’m not sure how realistic it is with high school teachers who can do DNA testing and kids who are into forensics but the story is holding me and I keep reading to see what happens next.

 

Here’s the Book Beginnings for You:

I soothe my forehead against the icy car window and breathe out a path of fog.  If I squint one eye, the neon splashed across the rain-slicked street forms a wide, cruel mouth.

It’s after 2:00am and we’re just pulling up to the police station.  They took me to the hospital first, even though I swore that not a single drop of blood all over me was mine.

Here’s a blurb from page 56:

The area at the bottom of the cafeteria stairs gets a lot of foot traffic during lunch.  The fact that Spam and I are engaged in a mild tug-of-war over the sleeve of my jacket in this spot attracts even more attention.  She’s trying to pull me away from the spotlight, while I want to walk straight over to the quad and confront Journey Michaels right where he sits.

Finally, I pull away from her and when I turn, there’s Journey Michaels standing right in front of me.  Towering over me, actually, with fists clenched and a murderous look on his face.

What do you think so far?  

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

Erin Blake has one of those names. A name that, like Natalee Holloway or Elizabeth Smart, is inextricably linked to a grisly crime. As a toddler, Erin survived for three days alongside the corpse of her murdered mother, and the case—which remains unsolved—fascinated a nation. Her father’s identity unknown, Erin was taken in by her mother’s best friend and has become a relatively normal teen in spite of the looming questions about her past.

Fourteen years later, Erin is once again at the center of a brutal homicide when she finds the body of her biology teacher. When questioned by the police, Erin tells almost the whole truth, but never voices her suspicions that her mother’s killer has struck again in order to protect the casework she’s secretly doing on her own.

Inspired by her uncle, an FBI agent, Erin has ramped up her forensic hobby into a full-blown cold-case investigation. This new murder makes her certain she’s close to the truth, but when all the evidence starts to point the authorities straight to Erin, she turns to her longtime crush (and fellow suspect) Journey Michaels to help her crack the case before it’s too late. (less)

You by Caroline Kepnes Book Review

You by Caroline Kepnes is one of the most creepy, mind-bending books I’ve had the pleasure to read in a long time.  

The author did an amazing job of maintaining the internal narration of Joe.  On the surface, Joe comes across as a nice, intelligent guy with a strong appreciation and love of books.  We quickly see that he has serious problems as a lovesick psychopath.

He has a very distinct voice that makes the story all the more credible.  I have quoted some excerpts from You in my Friday Post if you’d like to have a look.

Here is the blurb from Goodreads:

When a beautiful, aspiring writer strides into the East Village bookstore where Joe Goldberg works, he does what anyone would do: he Googles the name on her credit card.

There is only one Guinevere Beck in New York City. She has a public Facebook account and Tweets incessantly, telling Joe everything he needs to know: she is simply Beck to her friends, she went to Brown University, she lives on Bank Street, and she’ll be at a bar in Brooklyn tonight—the perfect place for a “chance” meeting.

As Joe invisibly and obsessively takes control of Beck’s life, he orchestrates a series of events to ensure Beck finds herself in his waiting arms. Moving from stalker to boyfriend, Joe transforms himself into Beck’s perfect man, all while quietly removing the obstacles that stand in their way—even if it means murder.

I actually found myself liking Joe at first, or maybe it was pity?  But I found myself hoping at times things would actually tip his way.  That changed quickly when we start to see how far he was willing to go to get what he wants in a very methodical, Dexterish sort of way.

What I liked about You:

  • The voice and narration.
  • The characters were believable, warts and all.
  • There was no guessing  what he was going to do next or what he was capable of.
  • Suspense.  I could not put this book down.

What I didn’t like about You:

  • The basement.  I had a hard time picturing this and found it a little bizarre.  I don’t want give any spoilers but I couldn’t understand why it was built.
  • I’m not sure how I felt about the ending.  Was it realistic?  I’m not sure.  It would be a crazy movie ending, though. Was I disappointed?  Maybe a little, but it did suit the story.

Should be interesting to see what happens in the sequel to You, Hidden Bodies.
