This one was really good. I liked the way they went through the two timelines of the crimes.
I haven‘t heard of this one, but it‘s a new audiobook available at my library. Anyone else checked this one out?
A 2019 Edgar nominated mystery. 10 years after locking up a 19 year old college student who confessed to the murders of 5 women, similar murders recur. Is it a copycat or did the police lock up the wrong man 10 years ago? The man locked up as the Canal Killer claims to have information but will only talk to his former girlfriend, who‘s brought back from the Netherlands to assist police with their investigation. Quite the page turner.
Reading this book was a wonderful way to escape what was a very tough week in my neighbourhood. It sucked me right in and it never let up. I really hated to put it down for any length of time. My only complaint is that despite all of the twists and turns, I wasn't really that suprised by the denouement. #willowdalestrong #torontostrong
I really liked this thriller - it was evocative and well paced plus I thought the main character was interesting and felt totally real. Full review on my blog if you fancy reading ! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
🍭🍭🍭🍭 review is up on my blog. Stop by and say hi! Very interesting! https://reecaspieces.com/2018/03/02/the-liars-girl-by-catherine-ryan-howard/
This was quite the gripping, page turning read. It's not the most dramatic but the build up is very good. I liked the flashback to the past. The big scene with the killer was good but seemed a little rushed. The ending was good too and a clever twist that really tied up the whole story.
The past returns with a vengeance in this crime thriller. It was well-written and kept my attention. Only one thing stopped it getting full marks - when the author had the MC do something monumentally stupid near the end. Rating: 4 ⭐️
Thanks to Netgalley and publishers, Atlantic Books/Corvus, for the opportunity to review an ARC.
Today was a good reading day! It was rainy and dreary out and aside from running to my parents for a few hours and some small things at home I started 3 books today! And im loving them all! I'm up to page 94 in one, page 50 in my #lmpbc one, and 38 % done on my kindle one! So stinks that tomorrow is back to work after 10 days off for winter break 😞 and next few weekends are super busy. Wish I could have one day a week like today every week!
1: dog is off to the groomers then chilling out hopefully.
2: I'm 5ft5 or thereabouts.
3: lived in this area all my life.
4: lots like the tagged book.
5: I hate having my picture taken but braved it especially as there are like no pictures of me. My parents both died young but I have lots of photos to remember them and I'd hate for my girls not to have any of me.
4 STARS - This sinister, slow-burn psychological thriller surprised me.
Normally I‘m a fast-paced, lots of twists kind of gal. Liar‘s Girl has some twists but it‘s the strong characterizations and the chilling feel that I found utterly compelling. Look for this book February 27th!
