The Girl from Widow Hills


Title:The Girl From Widow Hill
Author: Megan Miranda
Genre: psychological Thriller
Rating: 5
Everyone knows the story of “the girl from Widow Hills.”

Arden Maynor was just a child when she was swept away while sleepwalking during a terrifying rainstorm and went missing for days. Strangers and friends, neighbors and rescue workers, set up search parties and held vigils, praying for her safe return. Against all odds, she was found, alive, clinging to a storm drain. The girl from Widow Hills was a living miracle. Arden’s mother wrote a book. Fame followed. Fans and fan letters, creeps, and stalkers. And every year, the anniversary. It all became too much. As soon as she was old enough, Arden changed her name and disappeared from the public eye.

Now a young woman living hundreds of miles away, Arden goes by Olivia. She’s managed to stay off the radar for the last few years. But with the twentieth anniversary of her rescue approaching, the media will inevitably renew its interest in Arden. Where is she now? Soon Olivia feels like she’s being watched and begins sleepwalking again, like she did long ago, even waking outside her home. Until late one night she jolts awake in her yard. At her feet is the corpse of a man she knows—from her previous life, as Arden Maynor.

And now, the girl from Widow Hills is about to become the center of the story, once again, in this propulsive page-turner from suspense master Megan Miranda..

My thoughts
Would I recommend it ? Yes
Would I read anything else by this author? Yes
Wow other win for this author, so far besides this one I've read All the Missing Girls , The Last Houseguest, The Perfect Stranger.And all of them just like this was and is five start reads for me, in fact I would go as far and say that this one is my all time second favorite book of her while All the missing girls is my all time favorite one.Why is this my second all time favorite book over her other two books The Perfect Stranger and the Last Houseguest you may be wounding and the answer is because it's more dark and twisted then they are, and it makes you question everything you thought you knew about Olivia. And to tell the truth even though I give the other two books 5 stars and they deserved them this one was everything that I love when it comes to a thriller fast paced, heart pounding, non stop action. With that said I want to thank Simon &Schuster as well as NetGalley for letting me read and review not only one of my most anticipated reads but also one of my top books for January 2020.
