Book Review: You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen

After enjoying a couple of books for young readers, I decided to change things up a bit and dive into some adult fiction. If you’ve followed the blog or my social media accounts for a while, you’re familiar with my love of mysteries and thrillers, particularly psychological suspense.

Kait's Bookshelf You Are Not Alone

My first thriller of 2020 was the upcoming release You Are Not Alone from the dynamic writing duo of Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. These two make such an amazing suspenseful storytelling team that their novels have become an automatic read for me. The downside of their efforts is that providing a review for one of their books without giving away any spoilers is always especially challenging; however, I’m up for the challenge!

Happy August everyone! I can’t believe it’s already August, but I am pleased with the change in temperature here in the northeast. We’re still getting warm, sunny afternoons, but we woke up to a cool, crisp 60 degrees this morning, which felt amazing!

Speaking of spooky, I have quite the creepy tale to talk about today, Ruth Ware’s upcoming release, The Turn of the Key.

I love a good mystery. I especially love a good mystery with an unreliable narrator who keeps me guessing through the whole book. Sure, it can be fun to uncover clues alongside the likes of Hercule Poirot and read about how his mind works and connects the dots of a case. But there is also something so fun about reading two different first-person versions of events and trying to figure out which to believe, if either of them. That was the case with Michele Campbell’s newest psychological thriller, A Stranger on the Beach, which releases this summer.

Lies

In keeping with my mystery/ thriller theme lately, I was pleased to receive and dive into Lies by T.M. Logan. Lies is a mystery about an average guy who is happily married and living his life until one day, after seeing his wife’s car parked in a hotel parking garage, everything changes and his world shatters around him.

While this sounded intriguing, I was turned off by this book pretty quickly. I wanted to like it and kept reading hoping it would get better. But unfortunately, Lies fell short for me.
