THERE IN TERMS OF WELL PORTRAYED FEMALE FRIENDSHIPS IN in terms of well portrayed female friendships in book The whole mystery kept my interest and is right up my alley though I still found there to be a ot of unnecessary details thrown in I can appreciate a good red herringbut come on And my biggest issue was that I was expecting of a thriller with this big mind blowing moment Maybe I ve read too many psychological thrillers or the Gillian Flynn comparison gave me even higher expectations The big twist just didn t do it for meWhen I really thought about itI realized if this had been an adult book and not YA there s no way I would have given it the rating I was planning to give I guess there are just so few great young adult psychological thrillers out there It s unfortunate This one is dark and is certainly a great attempt I just wanted so much I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review from the publisher Such a crazy mystery and thriller It surprised and engrossed me I just wish some of the Markham Hall Series Bundle (Markham Hall, loose ends and plotines were tied up better A truth that s told with bad intent beats all the Megaman Battle Network 3 White and Blue Official Strategy Guide lies you can invent William BlakeKara Thomas an American author pens a dark psychological thriller in her new book The Darkest Corners that unfolds the story of two teenagers who drift apart after the night when one of the teenager s cousin was found murdered one summer night Now yearsater both of their past comes knocking at their doors and willing or unwillingly they must face the past and the ies before they begin their college ifeSynopsis The Darkest Corners is a psychological thriller about the Soy Sisters liesittle girls t This was my 3rd book by Kara Thomas and it did not disappoint I thought it was really great Good story good characters good mystery Looking forward to reading what she writes next Find all of my reviews at m pretty sure this ended up on my Kindle when I went Tacar Dánta/Selected Poems looking for aibrary book that wasn t available so this was offered as a suggestion instead but I m not positive because well Before I begin I need to apologize to this book for being the next thing I picked up after suffering from a severe bookhangover from Boy s Life I m not sure anything I read would have been able to get me out of the fog that one Sybil left me in but I am fairly certain this still would have just been meh for me The story here is about Tessa and her former bestie Callie who had a hand in putting a man behind bars for a series of murders of young women back when they were just kids Fastforward to the present where Tessa has returned to small town Pennsylvania in an attempt to see her inmate father before he dies While there another friend goes missing making Tessa and Callie uestion whether the man they identified as a serial killer so many years ago was actually innocent Sounds pretty decent right Unfortunately things went south for me real uick when Tessa began uestioning whether or not her estranged sister could have actually been the killer It was pretty clear that was going to end up being a bait and switch sort of plotline that would morph into something else and since this was a thriller that something else would come nearly at the end of the whole book which it did but for 200 some pages all of the obvious f ery had me saying 25 Stars for readability but rounded down because in a week or two I will remember absolutely nothing about this book The answer to this mystery is actually really interesting But I m not sure enough evidence was planted beforehand to make it feel entirely satisfying and for my taste there was too much time spent on superfluous details and there are too many uninteresting red herrings in the first 34ths of the book I wouldove to have read this story if certain characters has been developed view spoilerespecially since women culprits are so much A Womans Guide to Fasting less common hide spoiler Two things that are my absolute favorite1 Murder mysteries in which I am wrong about absolutely everything2 Books tha. Ave a way ofosing touchBut ever since she eft Tessa has had uestions Things have never uite added up And now she has to go back to Fayette to Wyatt Stokes sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truthOnly the closer Tessa gets to the truth the closer she gets to a killer and this time it won’t be so easy to run away. .
Read The Darkest CornersUch abandoned Tessa when Tessa had to ive with her grandmother in Florida Callie is in my opinion a mess but she live with her grandmother in Florida Callie is in my opinion a mess but she a ot throughout the storyThere is no romance in this book which is both good and bad Good because not every story needs romance and I didn t think this one needed it Bad because a Spring Girl little romance never hurts noove triangles though and there was a boy that I thought would play of a role on Tessa s part But that s okay He s a sweetie but he s definitely a periphery characterLike I said I don t want to go into
