How Will I Know You? by Jessica Treadway

This book had its ups and downs. I enjoyed most of the mystery/suspense aspects, but there were several instances of character dialogue and thoughts that didn’t sit well with me. It simply felt unnatural. Overall, it was still worth reading if you like mysteries with a twist, and I gave it 4 stars. I felt like some of the race-related writing came across as forced rather than as a part of the story.

Before He Finds Her by Michael Kardos

I loved this book. It had such a strange beginning that I couldn’t tell the direction it was headed, Then, at the perfect time, the mystery took on a life of its own. I enjoyed the mixture of love, suspense, betrayal, and forgiveness. The characters were messy, and the ending was unexpected, leading to 4.5 stars.

Lie to Me by J.T. Ellison

There were times when I couldn’t stand this book, and there were other moments when I really enjoyed the story. My biggest problem was with the main character, Ethan. His responses and actions went beyond the point of simple annoyance. He wasn’t believable, and his actions/speech took away from the mystery, which actually ended up being pretty good. I gave it 3 stars, yet I somehow still recommend it, but I’ll warn you to be prepared to become agitated.

The Ex by Alafair Burke

This was a surprisingly good read. I particularly enjoyed Olivia’s character, her flaws, and her passion for her job. The mystery part of the book kept me guessing while the relationship aspects were also relatable. I will admit that I sort of saw the ending coming, but I didn’t see it exactly the way that Burke wrote it. I gave it 4.5 stars and definitely recommend this one.

The Child Finder by Rene Denfeld

I wasn’t sure about this one when I started it, but I liked Denfeld’s writing. The book is a mix of sadness and that search for a happy ending. I won’t give anything away, but the journey is worth taking. The main character, Naomi, is relentless and doesn’t let anyone walk over her. While there were a couple of connections that felt oddly pieced together, this was still a really good book.

It’s Always the Husband by Michele Campbell

I really loved this book. Campbell pulled me in from the start, and I enjoyed seeing the story through the eyes of the different characters. Some, okay most, were frustrating, but the book was written in a believable way. I liked where the story went and the struggles of the women. If you’re looking for a different type of suspense/mystery, this one is definitely for you.

Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight

I found this book to be entertaining and surprising. I enjoyed how the different perspectives from the main characters intertwined, but it was a bit confusing at times. Still, I did not see the ending coming, and that is always a nice treat. This is a wonderful blend of suspense, mystery, and psychological suspense. I gave it 4 starsĀ and definitely recommend it.
