Summer Vacation Books: Review #2

One of the things I do when packing for vacation or even for a pool day is to look through Amazon to download some books on my Kindle.  I usually look at books I have read and liked before and then see what they suggest based off those titles.

The books I really like are similar to The Girl on the Train and Gone Girl.

If you like, those I think you will enjoy these too!  I always choose some sort of thriller or mystery book so if that isn’t your thing, these books may not be for you!

If you need other suggestions, check out my first book review!

The Couple Next Door

It all started at a dinner party…A domestic suspense debut about a young couple and their apparently friendly neighbors—a twisty, rollercoaster ride of lies, betrayal, and the secrets between husbands and wives.

I had this one on my list to read for awhile and was glad I did.  It has some interesting twists and revelations so I flew through this book.

Dead Certain

After Charlotte disappears without a trace, Ella turns to her manuscript for clues. And finds that she knows very little about Charlotte’s life. Was she secretly involved with three men, and could one of them be responsible for her disappearance?

I loved this book!  It has an intense ending and I was drawn in the entire time.

Don’t Try To Find Me

When a fourteen-year-old runs away, her parents turn to social media to find her—launching a public campaign that will expose their darkest secrets and change their family forever.

This one was just ok.  It was a super quick read but it dragged a little for me.  It’s also a little long but if you don’t like over the top suspense, pick this one up.

Behind Closed Doors

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. You’re hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.But it’s difficult, because you realize Jack and Grace are inseparable. Some might wonder what’s really going on once the dinner party is over, and the front door has closed. The perfect marriage? Or the perfect lie?

This one really makes you think about what you don’t know and what goes on in people’s private lives.  So twisted and I loved the ended!  Read this as soon as you can!!

Don’t You Cry

In downtown Chicago, a young woman named Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her friend and roommate Quinn Collins to wonder where Esther is and whether or not she’s the person Quinn thought she knew.

I liked this one a lot.  I couldn’t put it down.  I finished it reading it before bed one night and I was slightly freaked out that night haha…definitely worth reading!!

While You Were Sleeping

Tara Logan adores her perfect little family: husband, Noah, and two children, teenager Rosie and eleven-year-old Spencer. But her happiness is shattered when she wakes up one morning in her neighbour’s bed, with no memory of how she got there or what happened between them. And worse – he has been stabbed to death.

This book was pretty good.  You definitely don’t know who committed the murder until the end which is fun and I read it pretty quickly!

Pretty Baby

Heidi spends the next few days helping Willow get back on her feet, but as clues into Willow’s past begin to surface, Heidi is forced to decide how far she’s willing to go to help a stranger. What starts as an act of kindness quickly spirals into a story far more twisted than anyone could have anticipated.

This one is good…nothing too crazy but it is a fast read.  Again, nothing too wicked so if you’re more PG when it comes to suspense, you should check it out.

If you have any suggestions for me, leave them below!  Happy reading!Love Britt
