“The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins ★★★1/2 – Audio narrated by Clare Corbett, Louise Brealey, & India Fisher

I was late getting on this train and frankly couldn't wait for the ride to be over. I didn't read the book when all the hype surrounding it was going on, hadn't yet seen the movie, so I didn't know anything about it except that it was a suspense/thriller in the vein of Gone Girl. … Continue reading “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins ★★★1/2 – Audio narrated by Clare Corbett, Louise Brealey, & India Fisher

“The Accident” by Chris Pavone ★★★

Although the premise behind this story was interesting, I think I wanted it to be more exciting than it actually was.  Instead, the story felt drawn out and rather ho-hum, especially for a suspense novel. In short, this follows multiple characters (literary agents, CIA operatives, politicians, and the author him/herself) around the globe throughout one … Continue reading “The Accident” by Chris Pavone ★★★

“Luckiest Girl Alive” by Jessica Knoll ★★★

He meets an older … Continue reading “The Life We Bury” by Allen Eskens, ★★★★★

“From the Corner of His Eye” by Dean Koontz ★★★

This is my first Koontz. The suspense started off so well with murder, rape, personal tragedy, and surprising ties between different characters. We were able to see inside the mind of a sociopathic serial killer, reading his thoughts and seeing his paranoia increase along with his ego. There were some humorous asides as the killer … Continue reading “From the Corner of His Eye” by Dean Koontz ★★★
