Goodnight Beautiful
Goodnight Beautiful | Aimee Molloy
From "master of clever misdirection" (Kirkus Reviews) Aimee Molloy, author of the New York Times bestseller The Perfect Mother, comes an irresistible psychological thriller featuring a newly married woman whose life is turned upside down when her husband goes missing. Golden boy and reformed heartbreaker Sam Statler is looking forward to returning to his hometown of Orlando, New York, with his clever new wife, Annie. They've bought the house of their dreams and Sam, a therapist, is finally opening his own practice, attending to the egos of his (mostly female) clientele. Sensitive, curious, with a dimple to die for, Sam is a changed man--nothing like his no-good father, who left his own wife for a Talbots catalogue model. From the outside, Sam and Annie are building a picture-perfect life. But when Sam disappears and his secrets are exposed--including a house facing foreclosure and a mountain of debt he hid from Annie--everyone assumes he's following in his father's footsteps. Of course, assumptions being what they are, the truth is far more complex--and shocking. Showcasing Aimee Molloy's deft ability to subvert norms and expectations and culminating in the kind of unexpected twist that is becoming her trademark, Goodnight Beautiful is a thrilling tale of domestic suspense that explores just how far individuals will go to protect the ones they love--and to hide their own secrets.

Mehso-so

I dunno. Maybe I need to take a break from thrillers for a while. Sam ( a therapist) and Annie (a professor) leave their big city lives for Sam‘s hometown in upstate NY where they are closer to his mom who has dementia. All is not as it seems for this crazy-in-love pair, though. Secrets are being kept and then Sam disappears. It was okay, but as often is the case for me, it fell like a soufflé at the end. #doublespin for Dec

Wow! This book was crazy good. At several points the author completely shocked me, causing me to question everything I‘d just read. There were so many revelations and they were all done so cleverly. I‘m seriously impressed! I read a lot of thrillers but this was a cut above, in my opinion.

Bette I love looking at your cat. We had Jack, with similar coloring, and I miss him. Thanks for sharing. 6mo

The current packing view lol.
This was entertaining- unreliable narrator(s) and a Misery theme. The first twist comes soon, thankfully, in a way.
The end went differently than I had imagined it might and it was a bit refreshing.

I devoured this book in about 4 hours. I couldn‘t put it down after the first twist in the story! It‘s a quick, easy, psychological thriller inspired by King‘s Misery. 4/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

January‘s book report! I want to make an effort to read more romances for the month of February. All these books are psychotic or sad, or both (except for The Unhoneymooners!) I need some light reads in my life. I started the tagged book tonight, and the amount of times I‘ve said “Wait… WHAT?!” is alarming. I can‘t put it down.

BookLineNSinker I love your taste in books! Very similar to mine with a little bit of everything mixed in. How did you like City of Girls? 2mo
BooksNBowls @BookLineNSinker yep I definitely don‘t discriminate!! I loved City of Girls! Fell in love with those characters! 2mo
BookLineNSinker Me too! I'm working on Goodnight Beautiful now as I take a break from my marathon read The Secret History. 2mo

Another audiobook! If you‘ve ever seen the movie Misery, this book is basically the same storyline. Sort of. It was a fast audiobook for me because I was so invested, and I would definitely recommend.

147 of 2021. Annie is a newly married woman who‘s husband disappears. Many think Sam, her husband, just got in over his head financially and took off. Is everything as it seems though? This book has plenty of twists to make this an entertaining read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

eanderson It definitely was an entertaining read. One twist I saw coming but the other one I actually said ‘What the f@&$‘ out loud. I got a weird look from my husband. 1y

Read in September 2021 for Litsy Markup Postal Book Club #LMPBC Round 12 - #GroupC

An irresistible psychological thriller featuring a newly married woman whose life is turned upside down when her husband goes missing. A handsome psychotherapist. His lonely wife. And in his home office ceiling, a vent … You‘d listen too…

Filled with twists, turns and misdirection and told by an unreliable narrator it kept me up way past my bedtime.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

It‘s a page turner that doesn‘t wait until a 100 or so pages to get started . I was confused then shocked then completely creeped out . This book has everything !!! Read it if it‘s on your shelf don‘t wait !!!

🎧 Quick easy thriller ... there‘s a twist that I didn‘t see coming that knocks this book on its ear.

Sam & Annie met & got married in a matter of months. Sam convinces Annie to move to a rural town to spend time with his aging mom. They‘ve been married for 6 Weeks.

Sam‘s inheriting $2M from his absentee dad that‘ll help establish him in his psych practice in the small town. Or is he?

Sam has disappeared. 😁

Just a fun read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was the perfect thriller to pull me out of a dumpy mood. Quick read, great twists and suspense that ramps up. Really enjoyed this one. The only knock I have on it is that one POV is written in 1st person and the other in 3rd which was a little jarring at first.

This book was very good! Hard to figure out what was going on in the beginning. It kept me guessing all the way through. The characters were very interesting and unique. Lots of twists that I didn‘t see coming. Loved the short chapters. Would highly recommend to those who love thrillers. Very entertaining! I‘m looking forward to reading her debut novel, The Perfect Mother. References to Misery by Stephen King.

Book2 #marvellousMarch.
This was an interesting twisted story. Split into three parts that pull the story together to an ending that is very well done. The story jumps perspective and at the start you're not sure who is who but thats the way its meant to be and I liked figuring out who it was each time. This story does follow similar paths of another well known story which happens to be a favourite of mine. #Netgalley 4*

I never really expected what I got. Sam and Annie are really great characters to follow along. They move back to chestnut hill to visit sams mother and watch over her to make sure she‘s taken care of while he opens his own psychology practice in the Lawrence house thanks to a generous landlord. This book genuinely reminds me of the silent patient in the way the twists and turns are. The second half of the book is something new at every corner.

TheBookAddict I enjoyed this one as well. Every time I thought I had it all figured out I was shown that I was wrong. I immediately handed it over to my husband so he could read it and we could talk about it. 🙂👍🏽 2y

Goodnight Beautiful kept me engaged and it was like eating M&M‘s, I couldn‘t stop with one chapter. I finished 2/3 of the book yesterday into late last night. I‘m definitely going to recommend this to my thriller loving friends! 😀🌟🌟🌟🌟 #BOTM #fabulousfebruary book 3 finished.

I swear I had a lot of "WTF is going on here?!" moments while reading this book. However, after the story progressed I was able to sit back and be entertained. The villain is so creepy and I was so shocked when their true identity was revealed. I don't know why it took me so long to to getting around to reading it but I'm glad I did!

This was certainly not what I was expecting. In some ways this worked for me, and in other ways it didn't. This really one of those that you have to go into blind. Overall a twist filled psychological thriller.
