    This is another book that had a very interesting premise and started off great. A young woman, Sadie has been found dead. It's ruled a suicide but there are those in town who blame Sadie's longtime friend, Avery. For me, this sounded great. But it didn't deliver on the "wow" factor...

    I?ve known enough of loss to accept that grief may lose its sharpness with time, but memory only tightens. Moments replay. A few years back, Megan Miranda?s story told in reverse, All the Missing Girls, found me so impressed I scrambled to secure a treasured copy of my very ow...

    This is the second book I?ve read from Megan Miranda and as with her prior book The Perfect Stranger, this one just didn?t meet my expectations. Sadie and Avery are the best of friends. As with most besties, they know each other inside and out, front to back. So when Sadie?s b...

    Please take my review with a grain of salt, as I have many friends who have loved this in the range of 4-5 stars, but The Last House Guest fell short of the mark for me. Awhile back, I fell head over heels for Miranda's All the Missing Girls; the reverse narration and plot resolution h...

    This one was a bit underwhelming. I never felt all that invested in the characters or story. And even though I didn't guess the ending, it still is nothing that will blow your mind. Hate to sound so negative but there have been so many awesome books in the genre recently that I cant pl...

    This is my second book by the author and I have to say she's great at creating small town with lots of secrets. It was a very quick and easy beach read (even happens in a beach town!). Compelling enough to finish it but not enough that you'll skip on your vacation to stay in your r...
