Book Review: “Don’t You Cry” by Mary Kubica

:dont you cry

Title:  Don’t You Cry

Author:  Mary Kubica

Synopsis (from bn.com):  An electrifying tale of deceit and obsession

In downtown Chicago, Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her roommate Quinn Collins to question how well she really knew her friend. Meanwhile, in a small town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where eighteen-year-old Alex Gallo works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more sinister.

As Quinn searches for answers about Esther, and Alex is drawn further under the stranger’s spell, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes readers on a taut and twisted thrill ride that builds to a stunning conclusion and shows that no matter how fast and far we run, the past always catches up with us.

 

My thoughts:   I can’t believe this book has been on my shelf for years and I’ve just been starting at it.   Love, love, LOVED this book and it’s author.   I was in a bit of a reading slump lately so reached for a good psychological thriller and this certainly fit the bill . . . phew what a ride.

About a third of the way in once I was starting to get familiar with the main characters, I could just feel it was getting creepy . . . although I couldn’t identify why or how.    Then as each chapter passed, the book got increasingly creepy and I knew something wasn’t right.

I literally couldn’t put this book down and then couldn’t wait to pick it up again, in fact little secret – I got up this morning, made myself a cup of coffee, came back up in my bed to drink coffee and read for about 2 hours until I finished this book.   I had to see the resolution and the end did not disappoint.   Great read and I immediately went to myself to pick out another Mary Kubica I had right there.

If you are looking for a psychological thriller that takes you on a fast, fun ride . . . read it!!!

And remember,

Books Are Life,
