6 Thrillers That Will Keep You Guessing

Hey, folks! Hope everyone is keeping safe and well during these challenging times. Today I thought I’d do a little fun post featuring some terrific suspense titles you can always binge-read! If that sounds good to you fellow reader, then stick with me and let’s dive right in!

I. The Flight Attendant by Chris Bohjalian

Cassandra Bowden’s a binge drinker, and the occasional blackouts are inevitable. When she awakes in a Dubai hotel room to bloody sheets and an unmoving man next to her, she tries to piece the previous night back together, and decides against calling the police. Could she have killed him? If not, who did?

II. The Last Mrs Parrish by Liv Constantine

In The Last Parrish, Amber Patterson is tired of being a nobody. She deserves more—a life of money and power like the one blond-haired, blue-eyed goddess Daphne Parrish takes for granted.

Amber uses Daphne’s compassion and caring to insinuate herself into the family’s life. But a skeleton from her past may undermine everything that Amber has worked towards, and if it is discovered, her well-laid plan may fall to pieces.

III. Say You’re Sorry by Karen Rose

There is a serial killer on the loose preying on vulnerable women in Karen Rose’s Say You’re Sorry. The only identifiable mark the killer leaves are letters carved into the torsos of his victims. Together they spell “Sydney.”

When he grabs Daisy Dawson, he believes he has found his next victim. But despite her small stature, she fights back with an expertise that quickly frees her. Before fleeing the scene, Daisy also manages to grab what proves to be crucial evidence: a necklace from around the killer’s neck.

The necklace is more than a trivial item—it is a link to a cold case that Special Agent Gideon Reynolds has been tracking for seventeen years. What Gideon and Daisy don’t know…is that they’re the killer’s next target.

IV. The Widow by Fiona Barton

When the police started asking questions, Jean Taylor turned into a different woman. But that woman’s husband died last week. And Jean doesn’t have to be her anymore.

Over the years, Jean kept quiet about the crime her husband was suspected of committing. She was too busy being the perfect wife, standing by her man while living with the accusing glares and the anonymous harassment.

Now there’s no reason to stay quiet. There are people who want to hear her story. The truth—that’s all anyone wants. But the one lesson Jean has learned in the last few years is that she can make people believe anything…

V. Last Seen Alive by Claire Douglas

As much as Libby Hall needs a vacation, she’s never considered taking one until she sees the note for a house swap. Suffering a miscarriage was a personal turning point. Saving a child from a burning school was a public one. Just as the emotional fallout of both incidents takes its toll, along comes her lifesavers—the Heywoods, a couple in need of a getaway of their own.

Libby and her husband Jamie can’t believe their good fortune when they arrive at the Heywood’s isolated seaside estate with its panoramic views—and just in exchange for their drab two-bedroom apartment. How generous of the Heywoods, yet something doesn’t feel right. Libby almost feels guilty until the home yields disquieting surprises: a fortune in hidden surveillance equipment, a stranger in the garden who watches them, and the make-shift operating room in the basement…

When Jamie falls dangerously ill, Libby’s paranoia starts getting the best of her. As the past comes crawling out of the darkness, Libby fears she’s walked into an elaborate trap. But who has set it? What do they want of her? And what is she willing to risk to make it out alive…?

VI. Friend Request by Laura Marshall

Maria Weston wants to be friends, but Maria Weston is dead. Isn’t she?

1989. When Louise first notices the new girl who has mysteriously transferred late into their senior year, Maria seems to be everything the girls Louise hangs out with aren’t. In just a few days, Maria and Louise are on their way to becoming fast friends.


2016. Louise receives a heart-stopping email: Maria Weston wants to be friends on Facebook. Louise has always known that if the truth ever came out, she could stand to lose everything, but as she tries to piece together exactly what happened that night, Louise discovers there’s more to the story than she ever knew. To keep her secret, Louise must first uncover the whole truth, before what’s known to Maria–or whoever’s pretending to be her–is known to all.
