    2. Find all of my reviews at 52bookminimum poop.I hate attempting to write reviews about books I felt meh about Although I read a little bit of everything, the mystery thriller genre is definitely the one I gravitate toward most frequently That being said, I m extremely hard to please A 3 Star rating is gooooooood for me I also have high expectations from authors who I have previously read and enjoyed Unfortunately for authors like McCreight as well as others like Samantha Hayes and Chevy Stevens I [...]

    3. The Hook A starred review from Kirkus and good marks from my GR friends had me scrambling to read Where They Found Her The Line Because, lately, his doing what she wanted seemed in inverse proportion to his affection for her The Sinker It started out fine A body of a baby is found in the river of a small University town Molly, the reporter sent out to cover the story is on the edges of being back to life after her own tragic miscarriage making the assignment doubly challenging Sorry to say I did [...]

    4. 3.5 Loved the different formats, e mails, journal entries, newspaper articles and comments, used in telling this story A small town, a newborn baby found dead, and an investigation ensues Secrets are revealed and some of them go back years, and some of the leaders of this town are exposed Nothing is as it seems A fast paced and intriguing story with some interesting characters, some that will do, anything to keep the truth from coming outC from Publisher.

    5. 4.5 Stars I was hooked right away Wow is this the page turner Loved it I never finished Reconstructing Amelia because I couldn t get into it but decided to give this author another try I am so glad I did This was a much better read for me.The only problem I had was with the character, Barbara I found her a little too tedious, annoying, and over the top even though she is supposed to be that way Nonetheless, Where They Found Her , was excellent Psychological thriller fans put this on the top of y [...]

    6. Beginning half of the book 2.5 starsLast half of the book 3.5 starsI had a hard time connecting with this book right from the start So many characters to remember and multiple story lines made it hard for me to figure out what was what On the plus side, the lead story was what kept me turning the pagesI did want to know whodunit and why Finally a little over half way through the story lines started to come together and my questions were answered The author really does know how to spin a twisted [...]

    7. After being thoroughly impressed by author, McCreight s debut novel Reconstructing Amelia, to say the pressure was on for book number two was an understatement Of course we had the almost obligatory comparisons to Gone Girl, but while this will most likely never get to the sales heights of that particular title, in every other way it is a superior piece of writing.Still reeling from a recent miscarriage, Molly Sanderson, who lives in upscale Ridgedale, with her professor husband and her young da [...]

    8. Twisty and enjoyable mystery, but fairly forgettable lands somewhere around a 3.5 I m not sure if these types of books are getting generic or if I ve just read so many that they no longer stand out

    9. Here is another book that others seemed to really enjoy but that fell flat for me As another reviewer said, perhaps I, too, have read too many of these non linear mysteries with multiple POVs and jostled storylines Here I found the characters and there were so many very one dimensional and interconnected past the point of believability How all these seemingly cursory characters proved important in the end was a little weak and the relationship that was the most important piece of the puzzle was [...]

    10. Seriously, Kimberly McCreight Why do you do this to me Every damn time I always fall victim to your tantalizing, suspense fueled, and addicting plots I also enjoy every minute of it and will continue to do so again and again In Where They Found Her , a newborn baby s dead body washes up on the shore of a town in New Jersey, sending all of the inhabitants into a state of blame placing The story is told through the eyes of three women Molly a news reporter who is still dealing with the death of he [...]

    11. Where They Found Her is a standalone, mystery novel written by author Kimberly McCreight This is only Ms McCreight s second full length novel and after an amazing debut Reconstructing Amelia , I know so many readers were looking forward to it Sadly, I must admit that I didn t enjoy Where They Found Her anywhere near as much as her debut I felt confused too many times and I think that had to do with the multiple POV s and storylines going on It prevented me from following the flow of the story co [...]

    12. Let s just get this out of the way I AM HARD TO PLEASE.I am deeply entrenched in the mystery thriller suspense genre Deeply Like, I m not one of those well rounded readers So, 3 stars from me in this genre is not necessarily a bad thing That being said, I also hate writing reviews for 3 star ratings because I feel so monotone in my emotional reaction towards what I ve read It s the the epitome of meh And I have so much meh to spread all over this book.A dead baby has been found in the woods rive [...]

    15. It seems every thriller these days gets held up to Gone Girl There s no doubt Gillian Flynn is a very talented writer, but I dunno, something about her books always leaves me feeling a little dirty and grubby I read Reconstructing Amelia a couple of years ago, and while it doesn t have the same level of fame and popularity as GONE GIRL I infinitely preferred it Stylistically, WHERE THEY FOUND HER has similarities toAmelia.The book encompasses several viewpoint characters, and includes excerpts f [...]

    19. Another thoroughly well written novel by author Kimberley McCreight I had the novel Reconstructing Amelia recommended to me and really enjoyed it so it was an easy choice to read this book and I was not disappointed The book is not full of action but it has very well written dialogues that build up the various characters to have them clear in your mind The story is well laid out and makes perfect sense by the end of the book and is extremely well paced.

    22. This ARC was gifted to me by HarperCollins Canada as part of their newly re launched program HCCFirstLook in exchange for an honest review Wow This was really REALLY good I love a good psychological thriller, especially when they are as well thought out and well written as Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight.When I first read the synopsis for Where They Found Her, I was a little worried knowing that this novel was going to be told from three different points of view I really do love when [...]

    23. 3.5 StarsA dead infant is found on a college campus A freelance journalist is chosen to be the reporter on this case, which is extra difficult for her, as she is still reeling from the loss of her own baby Molly is determined to uncover the truth over this case, even if it means discovering deep, dark secrets of this sleepy college town I really liked this author s first novel, Reconstructing Amelia, so I was looking forward to this one It was slightly muddled in the middle, and I had a little d [...]

    24. As the book cover informs, this psychological thriller is told from the viewpoint of three different women Kimberly McCreight does an excellent job on voice each character has a distinct personality and expression The main character, Molly, is the weakest character in that she s supposed to be a journalist, but doesn t seem very curious or inquisitive The most difficult character to read is Sandy, who is a teenager with foul language and harsh idiolect I almost abandoned the book after Sandy s f [...]

    25. I ve seen a lot of mixed reviews about this book, but decided to go ahead and read it anyways Like Reconstructing Amelia, I figured that even if the book didn t end up being a favorite, it would at least keep me entertained for a few hours And it did But even than that, I found myself truly impressed with Kimberly McCreight s pacing and structure in this novel The way she tells this story ie, through multiple perspectives, flashbacks, journal entries, etc , is very similar to her approach to he [...]

    26. when i first saw this on , my first thought was that it sounded like sharp objects like, kind of exactly like it dead body in the woods, reporter unexpectedly put on the case in a small town, brings back traumaever, this book goes to show how different two books can be with similar premises where they found her achieves a lot in its relatively short form almost an epistolary novel, it introduces us to five separate storylines that all tie in together at the end the journalist her psychiatric tra [...]

    27. I absolutely loved Reconstructing Amelia and was so excited to get a chance to read this one early My expectations were really high, as well, and I completely adored this book, as well.It s not another Reconstructing Amelia, except it s just as compelling This one centers around a newborn girl who was found dead in a relatively remote area Nobody knows who her mom is, or how she got there, and obviously it has the small town in an uproar I love that Kimberly McCreight chose to have Barbara co na [...]

    28. 3.5 Stars McCreight s newest novel is centered around a small university town where the body of a newborn infant has been found in the river Molly, local small town community reporter, finds herself in the unenviable position of reporting on the crime when the town s regular investigative reporter is conveniently out sick that day Even worse, the death hits hard for Molly since she is only just recovering from a late term miscarriage herself.It probably goes without saying that Molly uncovers fa [...]

    29. I found this hard to follow at times, but in saying that it is a great read We are introduced to many characters and multiple story lines so you need to concentrate to keep up with them all The story is part mystery, part thriller An infant baby is discovered dead near the local university No one knows who the baby is or how it came to be there This begins the story and as we move further all these characters and sub plots come together to make for quite a dark tale, but a very intriguing one th [...]
