*I was given a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.*
: Arden Maynor was just a child when she was swept away while sleepwalking during a terrifying rainstorm and went missing for days. Strangers and friends, neighbors and rescue workers, set up search parties and held vigils, praying for her safe return. Against all odds, she was found, alive, clinging to a storm drain. The girl from Widow Hills was a living miracle. Arden’s mother wrote a book. Fame followed. Fans and fan letters, creeps, and stalkers. And every year, the anniversary. It all became too much. As soon as she was old enough, Arden changed her name and disappeared from the public eye.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Review: I really like Megan Miranda books. I’ve read a lot of them. I would even go as far as saying she is one of my top 10 favorite authors. Mystery/thriller is my favorite genre to read and she does it well. She did not disappoint with her newest book.
One of my favorite parts of the book was the twist ending. Typically with mystery/thriller books I can figure out the ending about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way through the book. This one I did not see coming at all and I was pleasantly surprised at how the author decided to end the book.
I devoured this book in less than one day. It was easy to relate to the characters. I do wish there was more follow-up/closure regarding Olivia and Bennett. I feel like that was kind of left unfinished, especially with her thoughts about him before finding out who the true killer was.
I liked how the author had a bunch of players involved in the story and made each one of them suspicious in some way. That’s what kept me guessing and unable to figure out the ending. I enjoy when a book surprises me.
If you are a fan of mysteries and thrillers, I definitely recommend this book, along with her others.
