Not as good as I had hoped. Writing style just wasn't for me.

JessicaBates I agree. It was pretty distanced from the characters. 2y

Loved this book. Probably my new favorite heroine. I was actually more interested in her back story than the mystery.

Great on audio. She lost me a little in the last third (could just be that I wasn't listening well) but I overall really enjoyed it.

One-sitting book for #readharder. Also the first book I've read written in verse. Very powerful read.

What You Don't Know | Joann Chaney

Debated on whether this was just so-so. Predictable and I didn't like any of the characters. But it was interesting to explore all the ways a serial killer influences those around him. Read for the #readharder challenge as my book set within 100 miles of my location
