Every Last Fear

By Alex Finlay

Review:

I’ve read some really intense, outstanding books this year so far. Every Last Fear turned out to be an excellent mystery thriller!

The story begins with Matt, a college student who’s suddenly informed that almost his entire family is dead. It doesn’t really make any sense that these deaths could be an accident, and there’s more to the story that’s yet to be disclosed. The family already has some history, and now Matt has to deliver the news to his brother who’s serving time for something from his past. Were these deaths just an accident, and can all of this somehow connect?

Here’s a true puzzling thriller that I refuse to spoil! I’ll admit that I was a little nervous at first with the different points of view and the back and forth writing, but it came together perfectly and wasn’t hard to follow at all. It wasn’t easy to figure everything out right away either, which is always ideal when reading books with a mystery. The book is heavily character driven, and it’s like you really connect with these people. The strong family theme pulled me in as well.

If you love intense thrillers with surprising twists, go check this one out, and be sure to go in blind. I practically finished this in one sitting.

5*****


I’d like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for sharing this book with me in exchange for my honest review.

Dark Roads

By Chevy Stevens

Review:

Chevy Stevens has done it again, totally sweeping me off my feet with this perfectly-paced thriller. Dark Roads is the type of thriller I strive to find—one that totally takes me away from real life and leaves me turning the pages so quickly that I’m completely lost.

Summary: Stay off Cold Creek Highway…at least that’s what the locals say. Too many people have gone missing either from hitchhiking or just bad luck. Hailey thinks she may have figured out the mystery on her own, but now she’s left isolated and needs to find clues to put the story together and end it once and for all. Beth is an outsider with secrets and many problems. She’s come to Cold Creek to a memorial for the lost victims of the highway, hoping to close this chapter of her life and get back on her feet. While in town, she takes matters into her own hands to avenge a family member. Beth and Hailey want the same thing, but can they come together to solve this mystery without getting themselves killed?

My review:

This book turned out to be great. It literally had me on the edge of my seat!

The main character is Jinx Marshall. She’s like any other typical teenager and enjoys her junk food and playing video games after school. What makes her different is that she’s the daughter of a genius: her father who is a survivalist and has spent years preparing her for doomsday.

Gated

My thoughts:

After Claire’s husband Sam is diagnosed with an early form of dementia, he’s convinced they need to move out of D.C. for a slower, more comfortable lifestyle. Claire isn’t sure what life will be like in West Virginia and feels quite negative about it, but she tries to remain optimistic because she loves Sam. She knows in her heart this is something they likely both need with his new diagnosis.

Everything is mysterious with this new ‘gated’ neighborhood, from the McMansions throughout, to the people that live within them. Claire begins to notice odd things about the neighbors and witnesses some downright scary events. As time moves forward she discovers that Sam has secrets about a special project he’s been working on, which leaves her seeking the truth in a world where there’s no telling who she can trust.

This book was totally insane, unpredictable, and nothing like what I expected. It was a real page-turner that I nearly read in one sitting. Some scenes had a Twilight Zone feel; I didn’t think I was ever going to figure out what was really happening here.
