Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine
Why I chose this book:
I was never a huge reader until I was gifted a Kindle Paperwhite for Christmas and realized how nice it is to be able to read throughout the day during downtime instead of mindlessly scrolling through social media. I quickly discovered my obsession with crime novels so this category is usually where I start the search for my next book. This book is also free with my Kindle Unlimited subscription (Including the free Audiobook version!) and had 4.5/5 stars with over 10,000 reviews so I felt like it was safe to take the plunge on this one.
What It Is About:
Gina Royal lives a run-of-the-mill life with her husband and two kids when a car crashes into the side of her husband’s workshop and reveals the body of a missing girl- therefore revealing her husband’s secret life as a serial killer. After the trial her husband is sentenced to life in prison but she quickly learns that her family is still in danger after receiving death threats by the internet stalkers who believe she played a key part in her husband’s killings. The story follows along as she and her kids take new identities and try to seek refuge from the attackers who are determined to give them the punishment they believe they deserve.
My Thoughts on This Book:
The reviews don’t lie! With plot lines like this I always worry about the book being too predictable, but this book was the opposite of that. I would think “oh gosh she’s making it sooo obvious what is going to happen next” and then BOOM something my lame mind couldn’t even process as an option would happen. So do I recommend this book? YES! It is a super suspenseful read and is also book one in a four-part series following Gina Royal and her family so I will definitely be reading the next one in this series as well.
