This book landed in my lap thanks to my co-worker.  She is obsessed with buying all the newest releases on Amazon and since she shares, I reap the benefits and get to read them right after her!

This is a tale of 2 sisters who went through a very traumatic event in high school.  On the night of Cara’s high school graduation party, her boyfriend Jesse dies in a horrific accident while her sister, Anna, is driving.  Anna gets put in prison  and Cara goes on living her life.

Anna is never the same again.  She has money problems and a drug and alcohol problem.  Cara is always there to save the day, often putting her own family on hold while she runs to rescue her sister.  As the story goes on we start to learn why Cara is so eager to help her sister and details of what happened the night Jesse die come to light.

This was a twisted, twisted read.  Things are not always as they appear.  The ending?  Wow.  I hate to say it, but, the bad guy wins in the end.  This book will have you reading right up until that point though.  Some of you will hate the ending and it will make you want to throw this book and others of you won’t mind.

Personally, this book was a quick read and while I was not necessarily a fan of the ending of the book, it was still a thrilling, enthralling read and for that I am giving it 4 stars.  It is a great book to read if you are short on time and are looking fora quick, mind twisting read.  Trust me when I say you will almost feel betrayed by some of the characters in the book.  Let me know what you think if you pick this one up!  Next week I will be reviewing Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate!

Book Review: The Thinnest Air

Title: The Thinnest Air

Author: Minka Kent

Format: Kindle Edition

Published: 2018

I received this book for free by being an Amazon Prime member!  This is from their selection of Amazon First Reads and this book will officially be released on Sunday, July 1, 2018!  PRE-ORDER IT NOW!

So many different thoughts ran through my head during this book.  I hated some characters because I was convinced, CONVINCED they did something that turns out, they didn’t do.  My apologies to the fictional characters I hated for no reason, but, come on, we all make mistakes with our suspicions.  Minka Kent does an excellent job with the suspense!!

There are two main characters in this book, sisters Meredith and Greer.  Greer is the older, protective older sister who lives in the city and owns a few coffee shops with her now ex-boyfriend.  Meredith is her young sister who lives in a rich ski town with a husband double her age who also happens to be worth millions.

Meredith goes missing.  Her car is found, door open, purse and phone on the passenger seat, in the parking lot of a grocery store.  It is now a nationwide manhunt to find this missing woman.  Greer immediately flies in to help find her sister and suspects those closest to her.

What we do know is that Meredith and Greer are half-sisters, having the same mother.  Their mother was anything but a mother so when she makes an appearance to try and help find Meredith, you must know how Greer feels.  Greer raised Meredith and will stop at nothing to find her.  Meredith’s father is a wealthy man who had nothing to do with her life.  In fact, if word got out that he had Meredith, it would destroy him.  He did set up a five million dollar trust fund that was set to be given to her on her next birthday.  Does this have anything to do with her going missing?

There were twists and turns and I could not put this book down.  I read this book in 2 days and the only reason I put it down is because in my drowsy state at midnight my Kindle fell out of my hand and hit my sleeping husband in bed, whoops.  Don’t worry, he has no idea it ever happened.  I give this book a 5 because it has the perfect amount of twists and turns.  The ending happens fast but I am so, so satisfied with it.  It gave me all the happy feels.  Next week I will be reviewing Killer Dreams by Iris Johansen, stay tuned!
