22 posts | 36 read | 22 to read
Already optioned for film, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is Peter Swansons electrifying tale of romantic noir, with shades of Hitchcock and reminiscent of the classic movie Body Heat. It is the story of a man swept into a vortex of irresistible passion and murder when an old love mysteriously reappears. On an ordinary Friday evening at his favorite Boston tavern, George Fosss comfortable, predictable life is shattered when a beautiful woman sits down at the bar, a woman who vanished without a trace twenty years ago. Liana Dector isnt just an ex-girlfriend, the first love George couldnt quite forget. Shes also a dangerous enigma and quite possibly a cold-blooded killer wanted by the police. Suddenly, shes backand she needs Georges help. Ruthless men believe she stole some money . . . and they will do whatever it takes to get it back. George knows Liana is trouble. But he cant say nohe never couldso he makes a choice that will plunge him into a terrifying whirlpool of lies, secrets, betrayal, and murder from which there is no sure escape. Bold and masterful, full of malicious foreboding and subtle surprises, The Girl with a Clock for a Heart is an addictive, nonstop thrilleran ever-tightening coil of suspense that grips you right up to its electrifying end.

I enjoyed this book very much. This was the first Peter Swanson book I have read. I feel that it kept me reading to find out what was happening with the case.

Definite 4/5 stars and I will be reading more from this author. I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review from GoodReads Giveaways.

I loved this title so much, I just had to read it. It‘s a twisty-turns thriller filled with obsessive love, stolen identity & time/mood shifts. Swanson has written four novels...I‘m looking forward to his latest.

I enjoyed this book, not my fave Peter Sawnson one so far (it took a little longer to grab me) but when it did it was worth reading. Enough plot twists to make it a worthwhile read

I have really liked Peter Swanson‘s other books, but this one was just so-so for me. I just finished, much to my surprise (I really expected more!), and it left me very unsatisfied. Oh well, you can‘t love every book you read!

Excellent rainy night reading and I honestly can‘t keep up with what will happen next... I‘m not a usual fan of mystery but Peter Swanson‘s book has my attention

This was a good book but not as great as ‘The Kind Worth Killing‘ - definitely worth a read though, he is a good author and I know there will be even@more great books from him :)

I haven't had a lot of reading time lately so I have decided that today will be my personal 16-hour readathon. And I'm excited to be starting something new!

Ok soooo... I already slipped up today, why not just compound the problem? 🙈

This one has mixed reviews but I enjoyed Peter Swanson's other books (fast paced, brain candy type thrillers - The Kind Worth Killing and Her Every Fear) and I figure it's definitely worth the $1.99 to check this out! #ebookdeals #bookaddict #ihaveaproblem #cantstopbuying #pleasesendhelp #actuallymaybedont #sorrynotsorry

vivastory I picked this up too. Hard to say no to Kindle deal 2y
erzascarletbookgasm I liked The Kind Worth Killing. Is Her Every Fear as good? Am curious about this too as I've read mixed reviews. 2y
swishandflick @erzascarletbookgasm I enjoyed it! Though not quite as much as The Kind Worth Killing, the twists didn't have as much oomph. But a quick, entertaining read nonetheless, I thought 😄 2y

It was just good. Not great. Reviews and blurbs said it was a 'thrilling ride' 'impossible to put down' I thought it was a decent easy read and quite predictable. I wasn't keen on the ending either. I like my thrillers more gory with serial killers and crazed kidnappers. 3*

MrBook 😂👏🏻 I like how you like them 😎🙌🏻! #KindredSpirits Great review. Wondering if I should add this to my TBR. 3y
DeborahSmall @MrBook If you like old noir or the idiot man always to the rescue then maybe but if you like a proper thriller⛏🔨🔪💉⚰️... a def no😜 (edited) 3y

I had mixed feelings about the ending and I thought I'd take some time to reflect before posting but it didn't help. I'm still not sure how I feel, but I did enjoy the rest of the book.
