While this was a quick read, it wasn‘t as thrilling or suspenseful as I‘d hoped it would be. I found Pinborough‘s Behind Her Eyes much more memorable. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Getting a little reading in before heading out to backpack 🎒 and running shoe shop with my daughter. Not sure how I feel about this book. I‘m at the halfway point and I neither like it nor dislike it.

MCYmermaid Excellent mug! 4mo
LeahBergen That sounds like some strenuous shopping! 4mo
Melissa_J @LeahBergen the backpack shopping was easy (and successful), but the shoe shopping didn‘t go so well. I did manage to get a visit to the bookstore added to our itinerary, so the trip was wholly successful for me 😉 4mo
Melissa_J @MCYmermaid thank you. It‘s one of my favourites. 4mo

Okay thriller, I liked some of the twists and turns the story took but there was a lot going on here. Maybe too many plots? I listened on audio so that may have been part it but it was just a little meh.

This book was such a disappointment. I loved Behind Her Eyes and this one was just predictable and ridiculous. It did keep me reading but I‘d guessed everything before it happened.

On a brighter note, this is my new baby Revan! My boyfriend found him at work living in a dumpster. He seems to be about eight weeks old and he‘s settling into his new home well. 🐱 📚

General consensus among my GR friends was right—this was not great. I read it in basically a day so it held my attention, & I like an unreliable narrator. But this was reeeeally slow for the first third, then got so convoluted & bogged down w/unsubtle hints & ostensible red herrings that...weren‘t. Reveal was pretty trite & there were some corny TV cop show lines. But I loved Behind Her Eyes, so I‘m willing to try one more from her, maybe 😬2/5 ⭐️

Megabooks I was undecided about this, and you‘re making me glad I haven‘t read it yet. 6mo
alisonrose @Megabooks it‘s not terrible, and I did see some really positive reviews on GR! But it‘s just so slow and meandering and then didn‘t pay off for me. Have you read Behind Her Eyes? 6mo
Megabooks I did like Behind Her Eyes. That twist was crazy! 6mo
alisonrose @Megabooks Yeah I loved the twist! I know a lot of people haaaaaated it though, and it seems like people like one book or the other but not both 6mo

A great follow up to her last book! Just when I thought I had Ava and Lisa's story figured out I was so so wrong. A few things I found predictablex but I loved it otherwise. Def. recommend!

It's been a loooooooong time since a book made me cry. And for that I recommend it. If I can be emotionally compromised by an authors words then they deserve a solid review! It's a bit predictable but worth the read. There are some twists that you won't see coming that add suspense and mystery. The end will rip your heart out. 😭 #charrot

kellyann28 I actually just swapped for this book and wasn't super excited about it, but I love a good, sad story! I may pick this up sooner rather than later. 6mo

I am quite the fan of Sarah Pinborough, and while I LOVED Behind Her Eyes, I had to take a step back and acknowledge not all books can leave me with my mouth hanging open.

And this was a solid book!

Lisa is certainly an overprotective mother who just wants what is best for her daughter, Ava. But what secrets is Lisa hiding from earlier in her life?

And what if those secrets can‘t be buried in the past?

Predictable ending but great writing!

This was a pretty solid thriller told from multiple POVs, which I personally love. It had me hooked from the start and it was a quick read. I did feel like the end was a bit rushed or forced, so was slightly let down by that. But overall, a pick!

I just couldn‘t get behind this one. The subject matter of her past was too much for me, I almost put it down when they finally got to the scene of retelling what happened. The storytelling was all over the place which ultimately made for a quicker read, but I wasn‘t really a fan. However, did love the line about not waiting for a man to save the day. Marilyn was the only redeeming character in the book.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ (3.5/5)

This book was twisted. The suspense and mystery was well done and when I got to the main plot of the book, I found it hard to put down. However, the book itself took awhile to get into, and it took 100 pages to get to the plot that is described on the book jacket. The ending left some loose ends and felt rushed, and I wish the epilogue could have been longer. Overall this was a solid book, but I‘m not sure I will read it again.

I confess that I am always reading 3 or 4 books at once. And there is always a thriller in the mix. I enjoyed Sarah Pinborough‘s latest thriller much more than her first. I‘m finding that my favorite (and scariest) thrillers are those that have believable elements which is probably why Pinborough‘s first, Behind Her Eyes, was such a miss for me. This one was much more in my wheelhouse!

RadicalReader Props for reading 3-4 books at a time I love zoning out on one book and getting through each one. With three or four I would be so confused 9mo
TheLudicReader Behind Her Eyes irritated me, but I'd be willing to give her another shot. 9mo
jenniferajanes @Bklover Maybe this will help you decide on the book? 9mo
Bklover Yes, thank you! It sounds like we had the same reaction to the first book. I did a bit of eye rolling at the end of Behind Her Eyes. 9mo
Linda906 @TheLudicReader @Bklover I had the same reaction to Behind Her Eyes! I was loving it and very invested...until the end. It was just too much for me. But I know that many people loved it. That‘s why reading is so fantastic - something for everyone! 9mo
