A new year means more new books, and while there’s nothing new on my Kindle so far this year (except a couple of ARC’s), I did get my first Book of the Month box. If I could do one thing, I think it would be moving closer to where they ship from so I can get these quicker! 🙂

Mailbox Monday – 01/14The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn
Published by William Morrow on January 2, 2018
Purchase From: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or The Book Depository

Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.

What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.

And although I said I would only get one a month until I was caught up on my TBR pile, I wound up getting sucked in by a synopsis!

Mailbox Monday – 01/14Two Girls Down by Louisa Luna
Published by Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group on January 9, 2018
Purchase From: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or The Book Depository

"I'm always looking for a good thriller, and this just was perfect."--Nancy Pearl, NPR's Morning Edition“Opening this book is like arming a bomb--the suspense is relentless and the payoff is spectacular.  Lead character Alice Vega is sensational--I want to see lots more of her.”--Lee Child"Sensational." Wall Street Journal"A must-read for fans of strong female protagonists.'--Booklist (starred review)

   As addictive, cinematic, and binge-worthy a narrative as The Wire and The Killing, Two Girls Down introduces Louisa Luna as a thriller writer of immense talent and verve.      When two young sisters disappear from a strip mall parking lot in a small Pennsylvania town, their devastated mother hires an enigmatic bounty hunter, Alice Vega, to help find the girls. Immediately shut out by a local police department already stretched thin by budget cuts and the growing OxyContin and meth epidemic, Vega enlists the help of a disgraced former cop, Max Caplan. Cap is a man trying to put the scandal of his past behind him and move on, but Vega needs his help to find the girls, and she will not be denied.    With little to go on, Vega and Cap will go to extraordinary lengths to untangle a dangerous web of lies, false leads, and complex relationships to find the girls before time runs out, and they are gone forever.
