    Review

    I received an ARC of this novel from Bookouture through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. The plot was interesting, the twists were great, and the ending was surprising and unexpected, which is what I love about thrillers. The feeling of being on my toes while reading this was greatly felt, but as far as my emotions towards the characters and their stakes, not so much. To give a short snyopsis, this novel follows 26-year-old Bree Walker as he tries to find her sister, Alissa, who has been kidnapped. No one knows who kidnapped her, or why, but all evidence points to her younger brother, Tyler, having something to do with the reason. Bree has only until midnight to find her, so it is a race against time to find out what happened with Tyler, and why Alissa is in the middle of the situation. The premise was great, the suspense was there, the atmosphere was suffocating. All of the pieces were where they should have been for this story, and it was enjoyable! Here's my problem though: While the characters seemed rightfully scared and confused, I felt that the stakes for the individual characters weren't heightened enough. There is a certain tightness I get in my chest when I see a character freaking out about something happening or going wrong, and it makes propel further into the story to see the problem resolved. In this novel, however, that tightness in my chest was non-existent. I could not express what it was specifically that I think contributed to this lack of emotional involvement on my part, as I have no clear idea. I just felt that the character's, although they were quite literally crying or screaming in frustration on almost every page, I didn't get that feeling that there was a serious problem here. Maybe I've read too many thrillers at this point in my life, and I've become desensitized. I really wish I knew what was the problem, as everything else in this story worked for me, even the length! Overall, it was really enjoyable and a good read, but my emotional involvement was not where I wanted it to be with this story.

    Entertaining

    3.5 stars I Know You by Erik Therme is a psychological thriller. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. My Synopsis: (No major reveals, but if concerned, skip to My Opinions) Bree Walker seems to be the head of her family. Her Mom is working constantly to try and make ends meet, but it’s not enough to pay for three children and the trailer they live in. So Bree, even though smart enough to go to college, stayed home, and went to work. Now 26, she’s still living at home and helping out with the finances, and laundry, and meals…. Her 23 year-old brother Tyler, usually unemployed, makes occasional appearances for meals, or a place to crash for a day or two. Her sister, 16-year old Alissa, is a typical needy teenager, angry with the world and how unfair it is. Their father, an abusive alcoholic, has left for the last time – hopefully. When Bree gets a text from someone saying that they have kidnapped Alissa, Bree sets out on a wild journey to bring her sister home. Along the way she is dogged by Alissa’s best friend Liz, who insists on helping, and may know more than she is willing to admit. Tracking down her brother Tyler is almost as hard as finding her sister. It quickly becomes apparent that the kidnapper is hell-bent on revenge. Bree is unsure how much she will sacrifice to get her sister back. My Opinions: This book is about families, and about how relationships within a family can differ, and change over time. How families will pull together in times of need. The author created realistic characters and the rapport and/or dysfunction between them rang true. It’s a fast read, as the suspense keeps the reader interested in getting to the outcome. However, the ending seemed rushed, with a few characters outcomes left up in the air. I guess I’m one of those that need to know what happened to everyone. I hate guessing. As well, although not touted as YA, it could be. There were a few unexpected twists to keep the intrigue working. Overall, a good book.
