    One of my goals this year is to be pickier about the thrillers I read. Not that this is a thriller, despite the publisher?s blurb calling it one. But it still reminded me of why I made this a 2019 goal in the first place. This book fell very short of my expectations. The premise ...

    Recently, I have found a number of book that have been for lack of a better word mislabeled. The book I have just finished is one of them. Labeled as a thriller, it was more of a family drama, and unfortunately, was not a family drama that I much enjoyed. In The Suspect, we meet a g...

    The threads that make up this mystery don?t really start to get particularly interesting until about halfway into this novel. We?ve met reporter Kate in the first two books of this series. She?s the only character who tells her story in first person, letting us know that her ...

    Told from the perspective of three different characters, one being posts from one of the dead girls. There was just something about this format that kept me from totally connecting to the story. There were many positives, a reporter who becomes part of the story, a moral quandry pertai...

    "The Suspect" is Fiona Barton's best book yet! She burst onto the scene in early 2016, with her book," The Widow", a book that I enjoyed, but one that did not quite live up to the hype for me. Then in Dec. 2017, her sophomore effort, "The Child" was released, one which I found t...

    This is the 3rd book in the Kate Waters series by author Fiona Barton and for me they improve as you progress through the books. They can be read as stand-alone novels. Kate Waters is a Reporter who thrives on her work and has always put it number 1 priority sometimes at the detrime...

    Dec 10, 2018
    What drew me to this book was the premise, young people taking a ?gap year? or vacation far from home, in this case Thailand. The world can be a very scary place particularly if you have led a somewhat sheltered life and young people make decisions based on emotions often without t...

    This is the third book I?ve read, and liked, by this author. Each features the journalist Kate Waters, who specializes in ingratiating herself with distressed or grieving parents in order to get a story. In this book, she has two sets of parents to handle when their 18 year old daugh...

    3.5 stars ARC provided by Berkley. The mystery of 2 missing girls abroad was interesting, especially with a journalist's own son missing as well. Didn't realize this was part of a series, so may have had a higher rating had I gotten 2 other books to connect to these characters...

    4 stars to my first Fiona Barton book! ? ? ? ? I?ve not read the other books in Fiona Barton?s Kate Waters series, but The Suspect is billed as a standalone, and it certainly does stand alone. Two eighteen-year-old girls go missing in Thailand, and their families ar...

    3.5 Stars I'd like to thank Fiona Barton & Berkley Publishing for providing me with a copy of this book. This is the 2nd Fiona Barton novel I've read and I still don't know if I like her books. A couple years ago I read The Widow, it was okay but something was missing. I...

    This was my first book by Fiona Barton and I can see why she has many fans! The Suspect was marketed as a thriller but I think I would lean more towards family drama. I found myself very intrigued at the beginning of the book with finding out what happened with these two eighteen ye...

    4.5 stars Really enjoyed this one and I'm kicking myself for not reading anything by the author before now. Will definitely go back and read her previous novels. This is the third book in the series but can easily be read as a standalone. A little bit of backstory is provided for so...

    I absolutely loved The Widow by this author and then she came out with The Child and I liked it well enough. I am disappointed to say that The Suspect, for me, was her weakest offering yet. I didn't find this to be a page-turner at all. It was a slog beginning to end. We have two t...
