Happy release day to book two in the Stillhouse Lake series!
Thanks to Amazon Publishing for the advanced ebook copy in exchange for my honest review.
KILLMAN CREEK by Rachel Caine (out today!)
This was the intense follow up to STILLHOUSE LAKE (see my review here)
My Thoughts: 5/5 stars!
I was so excited to be able to dive straight into this one after STILLHOUSE LAKE. Rachel Caine, how have you created such a suspenseful and addicting series?? How can I say more about the series when I don’t want to spoil the end of book one?
We’re back with Gwen Proctor after she saved her children from her serial killer ex-husband and those that were helping him. Just when she thinks the nightmare is over she receives a text, “You’re not safe anywhere now”. Her ex-husband has escaped from prison and coming for her.
I don’t want to say anything more for those that have read book one but not book two yet. Rachel Caine delivers a dark and thrilling follow up to STILLHOUSE LAKE. I honestly didn’t think she’d be able to top it, but damn, she blew it out of the water. We change perspectives in this one, as opposed to staying purely in Gwen’s perspective in book one. The readers get to see through the eyes of Gwen, Sam (her neighbor), and her children.
If you loved STILLHOUSE LAKE then you need to pick up KILLMAN CREEK (as I’m sure you already planned on doing!). This one is darker than the first book and has some cringe-worthy moments, but it’s so worth it and addicting.
Overall, if you want a fast-paced thriller filled with suspense and paranoia, then you need to add this to your TBR now. I can’t wait for book three (sadly I’ll have to wait!)
