GIRL UNKNOWN – Karen Perry (Releasing February 6th, 2018)
‘I think you might be my father . . .’
When first-year student Zoë Barry walks into Professor David Connolly’s office and tentatively says these words, he is left reeling. But it is the lives of his family – particularly his wife Caroline – which are turned upside down by the arrival of this stranger.
A daughter, a sister, a friend . . . an enemy?
Though no one knows quite who Zoë is, she is soon entangled in their lives. Yet her stories don’t ring true and Caroline is determined to learn if the girl is the unlucky innocent she claims to be or someone with a far darker agenda.
A deadly cuckoo in the nest . . .Because by letting Zoë in, David and Caroline aren’t just leaving themselves vulnerable. They’re risking the most precious thing in the world – the lives of their children . . .
My Thoughts: 3.5/5 stars!
Going into GIRL UNKNOWN I had no idea this was by an author duo! Like I’ve said before, I always am curious to see how these types of books play out – it amazes me that multiple people can write together and how seamlessly they can do it!
When freshman Zoe Barry approaches her professor, David Connolly, she tells him that he might be her father. Understandably this comes as a shock not only to David but also to his wife, Caroline. As Zoe becomes more entangled in their lives, Caroline is determined to find out what Zoe’s motives are. Some of her stories aren’t lining up and Caroline needs to know if she truly is David’s daughter. Not only are their lives and way of life at risk, but now their children are exposed to Zoe. Does she have ulterior motives?
I will say that this is more of a character driven novel as opposed to a thriller. Which I do enjoy! Just know going into it that you’ll dive more into the characters and have a lighter side to the thriller genre. The overall tone of the novel stays very dreary and almost hopeless. I did like the development of the characters and seeing how David and Caroline’s lives are being changed because of Zoe’s presence and manipulation.
Overall, if you’re looking for something more on the lighter side of the thriller genre, then I think you’ll enjoy this read! I really liked the ending, and I can definitely see it being shocking to some!
