Most Anticipated Thrillers Coming Soon

 

I love the premise of The Widow Next Door by L.A. Detwiler. I often wonder, how well do I know my own neighbors? I hope no one has scary secrets buried deep. If they do, I don’t want to know!

Here’s the synopsis:

When newlyweds Jane and Alex Clarke move into an idyllic house on the quaint Bristol Lane, they are excited for a new beginning in what will be their ‘forever home’.

And when an elderly neighbour brings them a pie to welcome them, she soon becomes a friend. But she grows a little too interested in the couple next door as she sits watching them, day in, day out, from the rocking chair in her window.

Alex says it will be fine. After all, she’s a lonely widow who just wants some company. But when she invites Jane into her home, who knows what she’ll find there.

 

I am eager to begin this book, I love a thriller like this one that promises to be super creepy, full of twists!

Due out in November 2018! 

 

 

If a picture is worth a thousand words then this cover says a ton. I love it! The Woman Inside by E.G. Scott was a great story that kept me turning the pages quickly.  Things that I didn’t expect plus an unreliable narrator and spouses who don’t trust each other, its all a recipe for a book that you won’t want to put down.

Check it out:

 

Rebecca didn’t know love was possible until she met Paul, a successful, charismatic, married man with a past as dark as her own. Their pain drew them together with an irresistible magnetism; they sensed that they were each other’s ideal (and perhaps only) match.

But twenty years later, Paul and Rebecca are drowning as the damage and secrets that ignited their love begin to consume their marriage. Paul is cheating on Rebecca, and his affair gets messy fast. His mistress is stalking them with growing audacity when Rebecca discovers Paul’s elaborate plan to build a new life without her. And though Rebecca is spiraling into an opiate addiction, it doesn’t stop her from coming up with a devious plot of her own, and this one could end absolutely everything.

What follows is an unpredictable and stylish game of cat and mouse—a shocking tale of unfaithfulness and unreliability that will keep you racing until the final twist and make you wonder how well you really know your spouse.

 

Rebecca takes so many pills throughout the course of the book, I don’t know how she functioned! I do love a character who has issues and is utterly imperfect … like real life.

I’m sure this will be a hugely popular book when it hits the shelves in January 2019.

 

 

 

The Diary by Vikki Patis hooked me right away. I like the authors writing style which flows well, the pages practically turn on their own.  Lauren’s best friend/step-sister Hannah died ten years ago and she is hesitant to return for the ten- year memorial.  Only because she wants to please her father does she agree to come for a few days and accompany him to the service for Hannah.  back at her childhood home, she discovers an old diary from Hannah where Lauren is shocked to discover the truth about her best friend.

Suddenly she begins getting strange messages, who are they from? What do they want?? My first thought was Hannah’s dead…so who is sending the messages and why?

Here’s the official synopsis:

Lauren has spent years running away from her home town, her childhood and the memories of her best friend, Hannah.   Until the tenth anniversary of Hannah’s death forces her to return home and to the group of friends she abandoned there. It should be a quick visit, just so Lauren can pay her respects. At home, Lauren finds Hannah’s old diary. A diary full of secrets. The terrible things Lauren did, the lies she’s told, the reason she ran away. And she receives a message:

‘I don’t know why you’re back, but I know why you left.’

But no-one else has seen the diary, and Hannah’s dead, isn’t she?

The book switches between past and present as the reader slowly learns the truth. The Diary is a very good book and I will be eager to read more from this author.

Due out November 2018.

 

 

I loved this book! HIGHLY recommend it. The Mother in Law by Sally Hepworth was really good and I’m excited for my fellow book lovers to read it. The chapters alternate between characters and you can see their points of view which made the death of Diana even more bizarre. The author did a fantastic job of creating sympathetic characters and a plot that kept me reading past my bedtime every night.

Synopsis:

From the moment Lucy met her husband’s mother, Diana, she was kept at arm’s length. Diana was exquisitely polite, and properly friendly, but Lucy knew that she was not what Diana envisioned. But who could fault Diana? She was a pillar of the community, an advocate for social justice who helped female refugees assimilate to their new country. Diana was happily married to Tom, and lived in wedded bliss for decades. Lucy wanted so much to please her new mother-in-law.

That was five years ago. Now, Diana has been found dead, a suicide note near her body. Diana claims that she no longer wanted to live because of a battle with cancer.

But the autopsy finds no cancer. The autopsy does find traces of poison and suffocation.  Who could possibly want Diana dead?  Why was her will changed at the eleventh hour to disinherit both of her adult children and their spouses?

With Lucy’s secrets getting deeper and her relationship with her mother-in-law growing more complex as the pages turn, this new novel from Sally Hepworth is sure to add to her growing legion of fans.

 

I know this one is going to be extremely popular! Due out April 2019.

 

 

Keep Your Friends Close by June Taylor is at the top of my MUST READ list. Described as a book that fans of Friend Request will love, this one promises to be creepy, twisty and dark…my favorite!

Here’s the scoop:

When Karin is taken on a romantic break by her loving partner Aaron, she can’t wait for him to propose. But her surprise weekend quickly becomes a nightmare from which she may never escape.

Who wants everything you have.
They are staying by the beach at the Midland – a grand hotel where Karin used to work. And where Karin’s dangerous and obsessive ex, whom she has been trying to leave behind for years, is waiting patiently for her to return.

Who won’t stop until your life is in ruins.
Now all of Karin’s darkest secrets are being dragged into the light and her friends are turning against her. When one of them is murdered, Karin begins to realise just how treacherous relationships can be.

 

As you know by now, I love books like this. I don’t get any work done when I start a thriller because I have to know what’s going to happen! Put this one on your Goodreads list.

Due out soon, October 2018.

 

 

I LOVE THIS AUTHOR! Shalini Boland’s books are so good, I highly recommend every single thing writes. I’ve read a few of her books and have the rest marked to read. Like authors Peter Swanson, J.P. Delaney, Shari Lapena, and Fiona Barton, Shalini writes page-turners that keep you intrigued from the first sentence of the first chapter and doesn’t stop until the book is over.

The Perfect Family will earn a spot on your favorites list, I promise!

Gemma is working hard to do everything from holding down a job to caring for her daughters and making sure the house is running smoothly. But when her daughter wanders off and is lost temporarily, Gemma must face the fact that she’s doing too much. As her mother in law points out, she needs help.

Eventually, at the encouragement of her mother in law, Gemma hires a live-in nanny. Sadie steps in to care for the girls and pick up the slack and even though she makes Gemma’s life a lot easier, there is something about her that Gemma begins to worry about. Can she trust Sadie?

Here’s the synopsis:

 

Gemma Ballantine is getting ready for work one morning when her eldest child comes running down the stairs, saying the words every mother dreads.  The front door is open. And her six-year-old daughter has disappeared. Frantic with fear, Gemma starts a nail-biting search for her little girl.

After what feels like forever, her mother-in-law Diane finds Katie wandering lost a few streets away. Relieved to have her youngest child back in her arms, breathing in the sweet scent of her hair, Gemma thinks the nightmare is over.  But then her perfect family starts to fall apart.  And she realises it’s only just beginning…

 

This kept me guessing which is always the best kind of thriller.

Due out in November 2018.
