I could definitely see this story translate well as a Netflix film. You hear that Netflix? Please and thank you.

Ripped away from her old life and friends she must start over while taking care of her mother and resenting her father. Oh and the real kicker…someone suspects that she was in fact kidnapped as a child and her real parents live nearby.

To me this was the most suspenseful read I have read all year. It’s not categorized as suspense but my goodness it should be!

Holy me oh my. This book had me on edge the whole entire time. THE WHOLE ENTIRE TIME. Yes, I just shouted. I needed to release all that energy this book built up in me. I am currently suffering from a book hangover and need to take a day off from my next read or it will not get the attention it needs. Read More »

First things first: what a pretty book cover, it’s certainly intriguing. I am a huge fan of suspense books: the build up and the ending need to impress.

Like the book cover, the story did not disappoint.

I was addicted from the start and the chapters move so quick it wasn’t hard to keep saying “just one more chapter.”

Joe is a loving husband and father: a grade school teacher, steady eddie type who doesn’t enjoy conflict. I feel he was rather frustrating in that he never gets mad enough (you will see what I mean). He and his son are driving home when they spot his wife’s car (Mel, who is supposed to be at work) pulling into a hotel. They of course follow her to surprise her. There he finds Mel meeting up with her best friend’s husband, Ben; who is in a mad state. After a scuffle with Joe, Ben goes missing. Guess who is the suspect?Read More »

Category: Thriller, Psychological Suspense, and what I consider Horror

Anyone remember this 90s movie? You have no idea how fitting this reference is, but if you read Baby Teeth you will soon find out.

Long story short: Suzette thinks her 7 year-old daughter, Hanna, is straight up trying to kill her. Only thing is her husband, Alex, has a hard time believing her. Hanna is only her creepy, demonic self when with her mother – or strangers – but never Daddy. Suzette isn’t Mother Teresa – you will wonder about her a bit – but no one can hold a candle to Hanna.

Ok, I could not put this book down. It was a super quick read and the chapters were short with just enough information that you need to keep on to the next one. I couldn’t really tell where it was going which is great for a suspense read in my opinion. But…Read More »

In a quiet neighborhood, a group of five friends (some more acquaintances), enjoyed a ladies night around the fire-pit: involving a few too many glasses of wine. The next morning one of them, along with her two small children, are missing. When the detectives roll around the ladies don’t remember much of the night (oops, too much wine), nor do they really know much of their neighbor outside of a superficial relationship (what was her marriage really like?). You can imagine the gossip within the small town: did the estranged husband have something to do with it or is he a victim?
