“You’re at home with your family.
You think you’re safe.
Ava’s life is the kind other people envy: loving husband; great kids; beautiful house. Until the night a violent home invasion turns the dream into a nightmare, and leaves her beautiful daughter fighting to survive.
And then things get worse. Ava realizes that the attack wasn’t random. Someone is targeting her family. Why? Who could hate them enough to kill?
Ava must find out what really happened that night, to save those she loves from even greater danger. But when everyone around you has been lying, how do you decide who to trust?
And Ava has secrets of her own…” – Amazon
Well, well, well. Sarah Alderson you’ve restored my faith that thrillers can indeed be thrilling. I’ve had some let downs recently, but not with In Her Eyes. Sure those other thrillers had some action, but In Her Eyes started with action and kept it going. And besides the first scenes that leave you wanting more, Alderson had twist after twist. And that final turn left me thinking about the books for days.
If you look closer at the story you could start picking it apart. There are a lot of coincidences coming together and that may be hard for others to look past. But for me, I let the story carry me away and just enjoyed where it took me. There have been suspense and thrillers that I’ve read where too many unbelievable things had to happen in order for the story to flow or come together. But all of the things happening in In Her Eyes were believable enough in this day and age that I could see it happening.
I really don’t want to give anything away, so just purchase the book and take time afterwards to appreciate that (hopefully) your life is nothing like those in the book!
