If you love mysteries and suspense, try reading “The Girl from Widow Hills” by Megan Miranda! I LOVED this book – it was a real ‘page-turner’ with several twists and turns along the way. I actually read the entire book in one day because i couldn’t put it down!
Arden Olivia Maynor was 3 years old when she became a media sensation as ‘the girl who was rescued from a drainage tunnel’ after being missing for three days. She has no real memories of that time – only a sense of panic when she is in a tight space and a lingering memory of being a sleepwalker when she was a child. She has moved away from her childhood home and is a hospital administrator in her late twenties as “The Girl from Widow Hills” begins. Imagine Olivia’s horror as she awakes from sleepwalking one night to find herself barefoot in her yard with a dead man that she does not know! The story has several characters that seem friendly, but also have some suspicious tendencies – Rick/the elderly neighbor, Bennett/the hospital co-worker, Elyse/a nurse and friend and more. Olivia again becomes the center of attention in a sensational news story and this well-written book kept me on pins and needles wondering what new danger was about to happen. Since our current news seems to be about sensationalizing every story, this book also made me think about public reaction to news stories and how those reactions affect the people actually living the story.
I really enjoyed “The Girl from Widow Hills” and plan to check-out “The Last House Guest” by Megan Miranda next! (“The Last House Guest” is on Reese Witherspoon’s
