  • Wow. Just wow!

    This is one where I don’t want to give anything away so I’m going to keep this review short and sweet. The story had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I didn’t want to stop reading and when I did I had dreams about being trapped in dark, wet drainage tunnels like Olivia was as a child. It really got under my skin, maybe because I sleepwalked as a child and I’m claustrophobic. The terror was palpable and visceral for me and it felt very real so it was easy to imagine a little girl in this situation being so traumatized that she loses her memory of the event. I really liked Olivia and I wanted to trust her but I have to admit there were a few times where it looked very bad for her. Due to her memory issues she was possibly an unreliable narrator. It was not clear if her judgement was dependable and which if any of the friends and colleagues around her she could trust. Everyone seemed nice and helpful and at the same time everyone seemed potentially suspicious. Olivia had been burned in the past by people trying to take advantage of her sudden fame and desperately tried to keep a low profile and her past a secret. When it catches up with her all her relationships change and she isn’t sure if her friends are out to profit from her childhood ordeal or if they are genuine. Not only is she dealing with the drama of her secret past being revealed but there’s also the small matter of a dead body on her front lawn. Hello anxiety and stress which are the last two things Olivia can handle. There was constant tension and an overwhelming feeling of dread and danger that kept me turning the pages late into the night. I was surprised by twists pretty constantly and the final big reveal completely blew me away. I did not expect or ever imagine what happened. I found this to be an intense and suspenseful read that sucked me in and didn’t let me go until the shocking conclusion. Two enthusiastic thumbs up! Thank you to Simon & Schuster for providing an Electronic Advance Reader Copy via NetGalley for review.

  • Meh?

    The Girl from Widow Hills just didn’t work for me. I thought the pacing was too slow and I wasn’t invested in the characters or the mystery. The ending was more interesting, but ultimately, the book was underwhelming for me.

  • Twist and building tension

    What an ending! I didn't see that one coming! Olivia Meyer's new life is still haunted by Arden Maynor's miraculous survival when the six year old was swept away by a flash flood and was missing for three days. Sleepwalking ties them together, as does finding a dead body one night. The plot was a twisty and constantly building tension keep the 'couldn't put it down'-ness high. Another fantastic thriller suspense by Megan Miranda. I volunteered to read an ARC from Simon & Schuster through Net Galley.

  • Wonderful Read

    THE GIRL FROM WIDOW HILLS is a wonderful read. Full of suspense and intrigue, the story kept me guessing throughout. I liked the heroine, the characters are all unique and easy to keep track of, and the setting is perfect. A great book for suspense fans. Disclosure: I received a free, uncorrected proof of this book.

  • Twisty Thriller

    Olivia has a past she tries to forget, but it is quickly becoming part of her present. She was missing for three days and later found in a pipe. I was intrigued from the start. The reader can’t tell if the narrator is reliable and what is true. Olivia is sleepwalking and finds a dead body. Who was responsible and is Olivia safe? What a fun summer read! And two quotes from the book resonated with me. This was the truth that currently existed - and so anything that came after that would have to chip away at all that came before. The truest type of story is the kind you tell all alone, to yourself.

    Thanks for your feedback!
