Her Every Fear – Peter Swanson ✶✶✶✶

Blurb:
Growing up, Kate Priddy was always a bit neurotic, experiencing momentary bouts of anxiety that exploded into full-blown panic attacks after an ex-boyfriend kidnapped her and nearly ended her life. When Corbin Dell, a distant cousin in Boston, suggests the two temporarily swap apartments, Kate, an art student in London, agrees, hoping that time away in a new place will help her overcome the recent wreckage of her life.

Soon after her arrival at Corbin’s grand apartment on Beacon Hill, Kate makes a shocking discovery: his next-door neighbor, a young woman named Audrey Marshall, has been murdered. When the police question her about Corbin, a shaken Kate has few answers, and many questions of her own—curiosity that intensifies when she meets Alan Cherney, a handsome, quiet tenant who lives across the courtyard, in the apartment facing Audrey’s. Alan saw Corbin surreptitiously come and go from Audrey’s place, yet he’s denied knowing her. Then, Kate runs into a tearful man claiming to be the dead woman’s old boyfriend, who insists Corbin did the deed the night that he left for London.

When she reaches out to her cousin, he proclaims his innocence and calms her nerves–until she comes across disturbing objects hidden in the apartment and accidentally learns that Corbin is not where he says he is. Could Corbin be a killer? What about Alan? Kate finds herself drawn to this appealing man who seems so sincere, yet she isn’t sure. Jet-lagged and emotionally unstable, her imagination full of dark images caused by the terror of her past, Kate can barely trust herself, so how could she take the chance on a stranger she’s just met?

My Review:
If you’ve read The Kind Worth Killing and enjoyed it then this book is for you! I just had to read it as I loved his previous book. The book cover is gorgeous and makes you think what can be hidden between the pages of this story. I awarded four stars as I enjoyed it! Her Every Fear is written well, contains short chapters and is easy to read. I devoured the book within 2 days. I would highly recommend to you all if you haven’t read it already. Her Every Fear was released on the 10th of January 2017.

I must admit though that I did personally prefer The Kind Worth Killing compared to this story as it had a lot more within! Her Every Fear will grab your attention until the end but I felt it needed more within the story personally. I really felt for poor Kate (one of the main characters) but the ending kind of made up for all she went through… Well I don’t personally know as it the leaves the reader presuming for themselves what happens… Sounds interesting? Want to compare which you prefer? Then dive in! Enjoy.

The Kind Worth Killing – Peter Swanson ✶✶✶✶

the kind worth killing

When Ted Severson’s flight becomes delayed he meets Lilly the mysterious stranger in an airport bar. After too many martinis he confesses his darkest secrets to Lilly about his wife’s infidelity and how he wishes she was dead. But what he does not expect is Lilly offering to help him carry out just that task… Do you dare to find out what happens? You will not be disappointed.

I had heard A LOT about this story so decided to dive in and see what all the hype was about. The Kind Worth Killing is easy to read and a very fast paced story that you will all enjoy. I awarded this book four stars as don’t get me wrong it is a brilliantly clever written story with plenty of twists and turns for the reader to endure. However, I personally did not understand what all the hype was about… I have to admit that the final chapter in this book has to be the best chapter ever where everything is revealed, but it does end on a bit of a cliffhanger (GRR,), which made me want MORE (and I did not expect the ending outcome). This is the perfect story for readers who enjoy a great mystery, thriller, suspense, crime, contemporary, bestseller and would make the perfect story to discuss if you are part of a book club. This is a long story (415 pages) but if you find yourself enjoying it you will find yourself racing through it, worth the time reading this story.
Enjoy, I did.
