  • Twists and turns

    Widow's Island will grab your attention from the first page and never lets it go. There is murder, serial killer, secrets, lies, heart break all accompanied by twists and turns that will keep you guessing. Stephanie and her daughter have moved to Widow's Island for a fresh start after the death of their husband/father. The name of the Island itself was eerie. Things quickly go wrong and they are both victims of social media attacks/cyber bullying. You won't look at social media in the same light after this. The pages fly by as the suspense grows and I did not see that ending coming. Don't miss out on a great way to spend a day reading Widow's Island.

  • Naive

    Rather naively written. Didn't take long to work out who did what and why. Sorry

  • Very Absorbing

    Widow’s Island is a tense psychological thriller about a mother and daughter desperate to escape their past. Stephanie Miller is a climate change scientist and mum to her teenage daughter, Amy. Her husband, Sergeant Major Patrick Miller, dies and her work puts her in the news headlines, so she relocates to Whisper Island, a small place off the coast of Seattle, Washington from Fayetteville, North Carolina with Amy, 15. The move means Stephanie will be living near her close friend Jen Wrobel and she has accepted a teaching role at Washington University. Stephanie is also the leader of an important project that had run for the past few years on the effect of climate change on national security. Then Stephanie and Amy come home to find graffiti has been daubed on their garage doors, and start receiving threatening messages. This is a captivating and deeply disturbing thriller with a modern touch including cyberbullying, murder, secrets, lies, stalking, politics, social media, terrorism and more. It's chock full of tension and there are explosive moments throughout. A gritty read that will keep you guessing. Well worth a look. I received a complimentary copy of this novel at my request from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

  • Page turner

    This book was a page turner from beginning to end. Very captivating with amazing character development. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

  • Stunning!

    I'm a fan of L.A. Larkin and I can honestly say that Widow's Island is her best book yet. It's layer upon layer of mysteries and a stunning climax. I felt so sorry for Stephanie, the lead character, having lost her husband, and her world starts to implode. I especially liked her because she was vulnerable, like an ordinary person. The killer in the story is so very very creepy. If you like psychological thrillers with plenty of plot twists and big surprises, then I think you'll like this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
