The Wife Upstairs by Rachel Hawkins



OMG 😳  This is my kind of thriller! Just like that my top 10 of the year books have a new addition.  Add this one to the list! I absolutely loved this book. From the very first page to the very last this was a 5 star read for me the entire way.

Thornfield Estates is all about keeping up with your neighbors...literally. When one neighbor gets a dog walker, well they all HAVE to have a dog walker too. Why on earth do all these "ladies of leisure" need a dog walker?

Meet the dog walker...Jane...she is new to town...nobody knows much about Jane..she drives a crappy car...she doesn't have the best style..yet they all let Jane in their McMansions...why you ask???'s the cool thing to do...

When Eddie decided he "needs" the dog walker in a different way then most..well the dog walker quickly fleets up to the domestic goddess of the neighborhood,sipping cocktails with the other ladies of leisure.....then things get really interesting..see Eddie's wife is missing.......

OMG there are thrillers and then there are thrillers that are MY kind of thrillers. This was my favorite type! I love a character that is flawed and one where we get a look into their innermost thoughts....that just happen to be a bit twisted and defiantly snarky...throw in some dark humor and  I am in....LOVE!!!

This book kept me on my toes the entire time and I was completely invested in every character...which they all had some dark, twisted secrets...I can't recommend this book enough. One of my favorite books of the entire year! Defiantly on my top 10!!

Finlay Donovan is Killing It by Elle Cosimano



OMG I LOVED this book! When the dedication page says...for Ashley and Megan because I would bury a body with either of you...well you know it is going to be good!

Finlay is several things...a writer, a mom, a sister, a contract killer...who knew murder could be so much fun?! I sure didn't.
A unique plot that kept me glued to the pages...absolutely!
Do I want more Finlay?....Yes, yes, yes please!!

After being banned from Panera for bad behavior.. Finlay decided to meet her book agent at...well Panera of course! Certainly she could meet her agent at another restaurant, but in typical Finlay style..Panera it is! This fiasco continues on a downward spiral when she is mistaken for a contract killer while discussing her latest book ideas!

This book puts the F in fun! It is such an original plot that is was so refreshing to read. It was a part thriller, mystery with a side of twisted humor- all wins in my book!

The ending was perfection! It hints at the fact that there may be a follow up to this book. OMG let it be so! Sign me up for more Finlay Donovan!

Thank you so much to Minotaur Books for my gorgeous physical copy! I adore this cover! Huge shoutout to one of my book BFF Susan for reading this with me! We loved it!
