Net Galley Book Review

Author: Cathryn Grant

Publisher : Inkubator Books

Date of Publication: September 8th 2019

Genre: Psychological Thriller

No. of Pages: 309

My Rating: 5 out of 5

One night, a few weeks after Moira, Alan and their teenage daughter Brittany move into a cozy neighborhood in Silicon Valley, Brittany goes missing.

The neighbors hardly know them but they rally together to support them in looking for her. One particularly friendly but nosy neighbor, Taylor takes it upon herself to do all she can to help bring Brittany home, even setting up a Facebook page.

As she gets more involved in the search, Taylor discovers that all is not as it seems with the Cushings, who have had limited interactions with the other neighbors in their cul-de-sac and whose daughter was home-schooled. Secrets from their past emerge that leave her conflicted.

I found this psychological thriller by Cathryn Grant very well written and engaging. I was drawn into the story from the beginning and enjoyed it to the end.

The characters are well developed and unique and the story was written from the point of view of each of these diverse characters. I was intrigued and eager to discover what was motivating them.

The story is well-paced with many twists and turns and I did not feel the action fall off at any point. I was able to read through the story quickly. Though I thought I had it figured out at some point, the ending still caught me by surprise.

I happily rate it 5 out of 5 and recommend it to anyone who enjoys psychological thrillers. This is my first Cathryn Grant book and I’m definitely going to check out her other books after this.

Thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
