I do like books like this – A LOT. It nurtures suspicion to perfection by playing on a person’s anxiety, leading them head-first into an unknown they didn’t think was possible.
It takes several assured steps away from any run-of-the-mill ‘psychological domestic drama’, at least in my humble opinion. It didn’t miss a beat, especially when doubt and fear cast long shadows over our leading lady’s life. And her daughter’s imaginary friend is quite unsettling at times!

Let's just say wow? This one had so many twists and turns it was half book, half maze. There were so many twists it was impossible to for someone to guess everything - really, mystery buffs, you won't be able to. There are questions - is the husband a victim, a womanizer, a bad guy, a thief...then when you make up your mind on one of them, it the questions start up again. The main character was a bit surreal in the head thanks to her history, but I liked her - on the other hand, her 3 year old d ...more

Who doesn’t love a book where the narrator questions her own sanity? I personally LOVE such a book!
In Trespassing, we follow Veronica and her 3-year-old daughter, Elizabella. Veronica’s husband goes missing and then, seemingly, all hell breaks loose. Veronica begins to question what is real and what is not and to make things worse, Elizabella says the creepiest things!
I recommend this to all fans of suspense.
This book has all the elements of a suspense thriller: Husband Micah disappears, wife Veronica finds out he has been hiding all kinds of things from her, both personal and financial, wife feels like she is being watched and at one point is certain she is being followed on the highway by another car. Not to mention the fact that Veronica's daughter, Elizabella (ugh! hate that name!), keeps talking about things that her invisible playmate "Nini" tells her - things the child could not possibly know ...more
Trespassing by Brandi Reeds was my Kindle First selection for March 2018.
While shelving this book after I finished reading it, my mouse hovered over the box to mark this as a 'Stand alone', but I flat out refuse to do it. Not. doing. it. I flat out refuse to believe that Reeds will not write a sequel to this mind screwing, discombobulating, page turning book. I was pleasantly surprised by just how good it was.
Veronica is a thirty-something year-old woman whose daily life revolves around fer ...more
I didn’t know what to expect going into this book. The beginning really hooked me, so I couldn’t put the book down. I finished this book in one day. I don’t normally read thrillers, but I seem to somehow really get into them.
This story started out with a mother and her three-year-old daughter. The daughter talks to an invisible friend and tells her mother about something that is about to happen. The mother then is taken through a whirlwind of events where she decides to take the situation into h ...more
