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.

Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney

This book wasn’t great, but it wasn’t horrible either. I found myself confused at times, and some of the author’s language choices felt out of place. With that being said, there were nice twists, and she kept me guessing what would happen next. I gave it 3.5 stars, and if you enjoy psychological thrillers, you’ll probably like this one. To be honest, I’m still not sure what to think about this novel.

The Sound of Rain by Gregg Olsen

This is the best book I’ve read this year, and I really hope there’s a sequel. I’ve read three books by Olsen in 2018, and all three have been good. This novel kept me guessing, and I particularly enjoyed the realistic flaws in the characters. I liked their addictions and the mistakes they made. I gave it five stars and can’t recommend this book enough.

The Safest Lies by Megan Miranda

This was an interesting book with nice twists and turns. While parts were somewhat unbelievable, I still enjoyed the journey. Any book that can keep me guessing is one that I remember. It’s a mix between a young adult book and a mystery. If you like that blend of young love, hidden pasts, and a crime, then you’ll enjoy this one.
