This mystery touches on a lot of interesting ideas, which could have been placed against the archetype characters in interesting ways. It's such a medley of interesting concepts, which never really got their due. Everything felt like it was left just short of completely realized.

Megabooks Good points! 3w

Megan Miranda never disappoints. Such a Quiet Place is a little bit more of a slow burn that some of her other novel, but that didn‘t really bother me. Here, she has captured the insular, watchful, suspicious nature of a small community with expertise. There are a range of distracting (some compelling) red herrings. A great way to spend a Saturday, especially at the end of a long year.

This was my first book by this author. It was ok. It didn't have enough suspense for me. I do want to try more of her books.

Thriller involving a close neighborhood and all the secrets people keep. Unexpected twist was great

I have so much to catch up on. I'm still not feeling great so haven't felt up to posting much. I'm sorry. I won't remember a ton of details. I remember thinking the main character was a bit naive and how much the character who came back after prison got on my nerves. But the outcome did surprise me, I didn't see it coming.

Wow! a well laid out and layered story that starts out slow like a summer and then builds up as the story is added to and unraveled. I liked this better then "The Girl from Widow Hills" Well done. 4.5

I thought this was really good. It kept me reading and wanting to continue reading. Everyone has secrets. There were creepy parts. There was a map at the start of the book to show the layout of the neighbourhood and where each of the main “players” lived on the block, which I thought was a nice addition

I enjoyed this more than the previous Megan Miranda book I listened to. I thought the characters were more interesting this one and things definitely picked up when a certain character is killed. I felt there was so much description and redundancy in this listen that it made it boring at times. I was underwhelmed by the whodunit.

I truly enjoyed this story, and rate it with The Girl From Widow Hills, which I loved last year. The sense of place and culture were spot on, and the intrigue kept me guessing all the way through. I flew through this book and would recommend it to thriller and mystery readers wholeheartedly. I look forward to many more stories from Megan Miranda!

This was a nice twisty thriller than entertained me while on a mini-vacation. It had some “Good Neighbors” vibes, but it wasn‘t nearly as dark - and there was no symbolic sinkhole 🕳. #audiobook #Libby

Hollows Edge is a peaceful private community where the neighbors are all friends. That was until a couple on the street was killed by CO. The police arrested Ruby for the murder over a year ago. Well she is back. What are Ruby‘s motives for even wanting to go back to a place where everyone pointed to her as the killer.

With multiple twists and turns this was a great thriller that delves into paranoia. A highly recommended.

I‘m just not on board with Megan anymore. Her writing style is getting to me (or maybe it‘s Rebekkah Ross‘ narration). Either way, I don‘t plan on reading her next one.

Ruby was convicted of murdering her neighbors. After 14 months in prison, she‘s released on a technicality. 🤔 She comes back to the neighbors who testified and sent her away. (Makes sense…not!) Will her only supporter, MC Harper, help her or turn on her? Between a so-so & pan.

Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘ve never been a fan of Jewell, but I‘ve also never been able to find a thriller author I like all of. 6mo
Cinfhen Yeah, it‘s hard to find a thriller writer that delivers EVERY TIME although lots of people love Riley Sager 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Sager is another hit or miss for me, but he‘s batting 3/5. Enough to read his next…from the library. 😉 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen but I did read the one this summer in two days. It was fast paced for sure! 6mo
BarbaraBB Jewel didn‘t grab me either. I have never read a Sager but I think I will. @Cinfhen 6mo
Cinfhen And I kind of liked this one @BarbaraBB but it‘s OVER THE TOP 6mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen Lock Every Door is the only one of his I‘ve bailed on. I‘ll tag my fav @BarbaraBB 👍🏻 6mo
Cinfhen I haven‘t read the one you tagged @Megabooks but I didn‘t like this one @BarbaraBB 6mo
TrishB I read one of hers and haven‘t bothered again, same with Jewel, Sager hit/miss buy on offer only! 6mo
Cinfhen Yes!!!! Exactly @TrishB 6mo
Megabooks @TrishB @Cinfhen I read two of Jewell‘s. I‘ll read her if I have an interest into that type of book, but they‘re definitely library checkouts! (Like one was about cults and the other the Internet, but I do not have interest in her domestic thrillers. I‘m really down on domestic thrillers period.) 6mo
BarbaraBB @Cinfhen @Megabooks Somehow your comments don‘t make me eager to pick up one. Which is good, since you are my feeders enough already as it is 😉😘 6mo
Cinfhen If you want a good thriller / that‘s a bit gritty but really page turning and thought provoking I recommend S. A. Cosby @BarbaraBB either this one 6mo
bthegood I wasn't a fan of Last House Guest - I've not really enjoyed many of the Reese book club picks 😂 (edited) 6mo

I love Megan Miranda novels and this is one of her best! An insular community, lots of lies, assumptions, and omissions, a community webpage, a conspiratorial trap, and murder. There is tight suspense throughout and a tragic twisted ending. Stay away from Hollow‘s Edge. I warned you. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is an extremely slow-burn bloodless murder mystery. Although Megan Miranda did a great job of building tension I found it hard for the plot to completely keep my attention as the characters were all so bland and boring. Even the crime(s) lacked the gritty and dark vibe I prefer to escape in. I‘d recommend this one for readers that want to enjoy a more low-key thriller or mystery suspense but without any gore or disturbing scenes. 3.5 stars

Set in a small subdivision with a nice map, the book opens 14 months after the deaths of narrator Harper‘s neighbors. Her ex-roommate convicted of the crime has been released from prison- and returns to Hollow‘s Edge setting the neighborhood back on edge. It moves a bit slowly but builds tension nicely. It‘s not my favorite of hers but it makes for a fun backyard read! Looking forward to her next book!

The author's books are always a must-read for me. It's very much a slow-burner, taking its time to build up a picture of the community where Harper lives. Once the story got going it gathered pace & I had to read the last third of the book in one go. The ending wasn't quite as thrilling as I had hoped, but it was still a great read. 4🌟

Thanks to NetGalley & publishers, Atlantic Books/Corvus, for the opportunity to read an ARC. #NetGalley

Thank you to Simon & Schuster and NetGalley for providing this Advance Reading Copy. Expected publication date is July 13, 2021.

Another page turner from Megan Miranda who is soon becoming one of my favorite psychological thriller authors.

Wow, I was intrigued the whole time and I kept changing my hypothesis every chapter. I had absolutely no idea what the ending was going to be and I was not disappointed with the result. The suspense, the character dynamic especially with Harper and Ruby, and the plot twists were all fantastic! I don't have a lot of critiques other than the map should be in a bigger format, and a character sheet would be appreciated.

I like MM and I was thrilled to get this arc from NetGalley. However, this isn‘t my fave story of hers. It felt inspired by Agatha Christie...a whodunit amongst a tight group of neighbors. Little character development and I didn‘t like the main character. Interesting observations on how we present ourselves, the lies we tell ourselves, and the false realities we create. I was just never really invested, but it‘s a fast read with some nice twists.
