Book Review Part Two

Happy Friday everyone! Today I am sharing my book review part two! This time of year is the perfect time to cozy up with a good book and a cup of hot cocoa! Here are some of my latest reads…

1. The Breakdown by B.A. Paris

This was without a doubt one of my all time favorite thrillers! I tore through this book, and it seriously had me a bit on edge reading it late at night! The main character, Cass, drives home late one night down a winding road in the woods, in the middle of a downpour. She sees a car on the side of the road, and debates whether to stop and help them or not. Only to later find out that the woman in the car was murdered, and feels terribly guilty for not stopping. She can’t admit to anyone what she saw that night, especially since she promised her husband she wouldn’t take that dangerous road. Ever since then, she keeps receiving silent calls, and has a feeling that someone has been in her house and is watching her. Cass can’t seem to remember simple things like where she left her car, if she took her pills, or what her alarm code is. Is she really losing it, or are things not as they seem? In the end, you won’t see the twist coming at all! SO good!

2. A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena

Tom and Karen Krupp are happily married and living in the suburbs in New York. One day, Tom comes home to find Karen has simply disappeared. The house is unlocked and her car is gone, but all of her belongings including her ID and phone are still there. The police soon inform him that Karen has been in a card accident in the worst part of town. She wakes up in the hospital with no memory of that night, but quickly needs to recover her memory when a murder is reported just down the street from where her accident happened. The police begin to suspect that it was Karen, and she is desperately trying to prove she’s innocent, especially since she feels that someone has been in her house, moving her things around. I absolutely loved this book, and the twist at the end was completely unexpected!

3. Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris

Jack and Grace seem like the perfect couple. Jack is wealthy and very handsome, and Grace is elegant and a woman of many talents. The two never spend a minute apart from eachother, but is it really true love? Grace’s friends wonder why she doesn’t have a cell phone, or why she can’t leave the house without Jack, or why their house is so heavily secured? You’ll soon found out that things aren’t always as perfect as they seem, and you never know what goes on behind closed doors. This book was another page turner, and really kept me on edge!

4. Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes

This is the book that I am currently reading and nearly finished with, but am loving! Catherine thinks she is the luckiest girl when she meets blue-eyed, gorgeous Lee, but his mysterious side might not be so attractive after all. Their relationship quickly turns from passion to a nightmare, as Lee becomes twisted and violent, and horribly jealous. Catherine tries to end things and turn to her friends for help, but they don’t believe her. She feels alone and desperate to escape, just barely with her life. Four years later and Lee is in prison, and Catherine has moved on with her life. Her past stills haunts her though, and she suffers from OCD in an effort to feel safe from day to day. Her new neighbor, Stuart, helps comfort her and brings hope that she can turn things around and finally have a normal life. That is, until the day that the phone rings…

I would love to hear if you have read any of these, and keep me posted if you decide to read them! I highly recommend all of them! I absolutely love mysteries and psychological thrillers, and would love any good recs you might have! You can never have too many good books for the winter time!
