    So, let me start off by saying how much of a huge fan I am of Minka Kent. I remember running across her debut novel The Memory Watcher on my kindle and I fell in love with her writing style!

    So, naturally I was extremely excited to get my hands on Minka's third book! But, I am going to be honest in that this was my least favorite novel that she has published.

    What I love about Kent? She flawlessly always grabs her readers in from page one and of course this was demonstrated beautifully in The Th

    Advanced Reading Copy For an Honest Review

    Suspense is definitely in my top two favorite Genres, but it is so hard sometimes to find a good suspense thriller, BUT every single time I see Minka Kent is coming out with a new book I get so excited because I know it will be amazing. I have yet to read anything by this author that is less than stellar.

    This story goes back in forth between the past and present as the mystery of what happened to Meredith builds into a very suspenseful, twisty, winding c

    I'm glad this was a free book. With all of the five-star reviews, I wonder if I didn't miss something, but, there was nothing original in this book. It was full of clichés and stereotypes, and it wasn't very well-written.

    2 stars I guess lol. This was a free book for me with Amazon Prime this month and I’m very happy I didn’t actually buy it. I really enjoyed Minka’s book, The Perfect Roommate, but this one just irritated me so much. I didn’t like any of the characters. I maybe could’ve liked Meredith but I don’t think I had a chance to get to know her all that well. Greer, the main character, in my opinion, was so annoying. And the book was chock full of cliches and repetition. For example, if I would’ve had to ...more

    Well this was my freebie for the month of June and I wasn't all that impressed. This was ok but just barely. At first I really couldn't stand either one of the sisters. I thought that they both came across as spoiled and self centered. I thought the dialogue was pretty terrible at the start too. Especially the dialogue between Greer and Andrew. It was so unnatural and awkward but also flat and boring.

    As the story progressed, those things improved. The dialogue got better. More complexi

    Never boring, this quick read kept me turning pages, but oh, what a frustrating ending!
    This is one of those suspense novels where you suspect everybody – so of course I suspected the perpetrator/s all along!
    The main character, Meredith, - what a total ninny! But such a stunner that she slayed men wherever she walked. (Yeuch).
    The writing was good overall, but Kent uses that (annoying in my view) device of using brand names as shorthand descriptions. Not only will this date the book, but it als

    The build up was pretty good and I really liked Greer, but then I thought the ending was rushed. And the big reveal as to who was the kidnapper? Well what I'd imagined was far more interesting than what was actually revealed...the who, the why, the how was kind of ordinary. I wanted this book to be more psychologically twisted than it actually was.

    This was an easy Kindle First pick for me, as I read "The Perfect Roommate" by this author earlier this year and enjoyed it. I'm in the midst of reading "The Terror" by Dan Simmons and needed a break to read something lighter (though I'm not sure what it says about me that I consider a book about a missing woman who has possibly been murdered the lighter choice).

    It's a fast paced book that's not overly long, I read this in an afternoon. Each chapter alternates the POV between sisters Meredith an

    This was a Kindle First choice for June.

    I didn't dislike this book, but it didn't blow me away, either. The characters weren't particularly likable, and the story was rather predictable, but it had its moments. The writing is quite good in some places, and all-in-all, reading this book was an okay way to spend an evening. Way better than watching TV!

    Good book: quick read. Not a super sophisticated writing style, but a fun plot line to follow. Characters were not complex, but sympathic enough. It was a good light read, but not one I'd go out of my way to recommend or reread.

    I was kind of disappointed when we found out who the true “bad guy” was. I had hoped for something a little less cliche.

    That being said I actually quite enjoyed this book. I liked the back and forth in time frame, and characters POV. That’s one of my favorite ways to read these thriller/suspense type books.

    Like always, about the last 20% is my favorite as that’s when the action really picks up.

    I wouldn’t hate having a novella to follow up this story! I’m drying to know what happens to a couple

    ARC in exchange for my thoughts

    I really don't know what there is to Minka Kent's stories but I am drawn into them as soon as I start reading. It is not only the setting and the plot but the whole package!
    So far I enjoyed every single book by this author. She creates clever and suspenseful yet believable stories. This book is no exaption!
    I do not want to give away too much about the plot.
    If you enjoy thrillers with authentic charakters and lots of red herrings this will work out for you.

    This book is fantastic and I couldn't put it down once I started reading it.
    I binge read it in an afternoon and even though I needed to know what had happened to Meredith I didn't want it to end.
    The storyline flows really well and hooks you in from the beginning of the book and doesn't let you go till you read the end.
    This book gave me a plethora of emotions that will stay with me for some time.

    Hmmm....

    I'm not the best person to be rating this novel as the subject matter is not of the mode that I would generally choose to read or even view on screen.
    Thus having forewarned you, I was turned off within the first several chapters as the text came across as a soap opera - a total NO for my tastes; however, in not being a quitter i continued to read, finding myself unable to put the book down once half-way through. The pace of the story picked up considerably, keeping me in a guessing state

    Minka Kent's Best Novel Yet!

    When I saw a book by Minka Kent was a Kindle First selection this month, I had to look no further. The choice was easy for me.
    This is Ms. Kent's third novel and I have read all three. I thought this was a vast improvement over the first two. She has grown immensely as a writer and it is clear to me that she will continue to improve and write entertaining thrillers.

    This was a quick and enjoyable read. I loved that I had to keep guessing, and I tend to enjoy books where the main character marries into the 1% because... well... a girl can dream, haha.

    However, I equate Minka Kent's writing style to the McDonalds of thrillers. It's shallow and mass-produced and predictable. The characters make decisions that normal people wouldn't and generally aren't very likeable.

    This is the book I chose for my Kindle First Picks June free book.

    The book starts off promising but quickly turns into a predictable read. The format of the book tried a spin on Gone Girl with the chapters switching off between past and present - finally matching up at the end of the book. It’s a creative twist.

    There is some suspense which is overall limited by its predictability. I would have liked to been kept guessing a little longer.

    The chapters bounce between Meredith and Greer’s point of view (months leading up to Meredith’s disappearance and present day). I actually did like the back and forth POV, but the story itself fell flat to me and I didn’t feel any attachment to the characters (I found myself getting annoyed with them). There were brief moments of suspense, but nothing that left me holding my breath or surprised.

    This was definitely a wonderful, fast paced thriller! I love the bond between Greer and her younger sister Meridith. the way she was bond and determined to find her. such interesting relationships in this book. Love, lust, obsession all come together and intertwine, affecting all of the key characters. I can't recommend this book enough!

    A five star psychological thriller!!! I really like author Minka Kent. She really writes some page-turners and this was no exception. Also, the book keeps you guessing as to who the kidnapper could actually be.
    I really recommend this book! This book was free with Amazon Prime - they offer your choice of one free book per month out of a list of four. I am SO glad I chose this one!
