Danielle Girard recommends
Switchback (2019)
(Patrick Flint, book 1)
Pamela Fagan Hutchins
"Switchback transports the reader deep into the mountains of Wyoming for a thriller that has it all--wild animals, criminals, and one family willing to do whatever is necessary to protect its own. Pamela Fagan Hutchins writes with the authority of a woman who knows this world. She weaves the story with both nail-biting suspense and a healthy dose of humor. You won't want to miss Switchback."
Departure (2020)
(Seth Walker, book 3)
Joseph Reid
"I fell for Seth Walker in Takeoff, the first of the series, and I think I love him more in Departure. What I love most is that Seth’s brawn, of which there is much to appreciate, is matched by his brain—imagine Clancy’s Jack Ryan combined with a young Steve Jobs. The combination makes Departure another hold-on-to-your-seat, don’t-even-try-to-put-it-down thriller. If you haven’t tried Seth Walker, you’re missing out."
Don't Ever Forget (2020)
(Adler and Dwyer, book 1)
Matthew Farrell
"Matthew Farrell has done it again. A tense and twisty thriller, Don’t Ever Forget grabs you by the throat from the first page and does not let go. The result is an edge-of-your-seat, up-all-night read that packs a final punch you won’t soon forget. Fantastic!"
For the Best (2020)
Vanessa Lillie
"For the Best grabs the reader from the first page and does not let up until the final, unexpected turn. While Jules Worthington-Smith fights to clear her name and preserve her hard-earned career, what she discovers threatens to bring her world down around her. As in her debut Little Voices, Vanessa Lillie writes with both authority and a fresh voice as she confronts the contradiction of family—that those closest to us can give us strength or tear us to shreds, and sometimes both at once. For the Best is not to be missed."
An Eye for an Eye (2021)
(Detective Kate Young, book 1)
Carol Wyer
"An Eye for an Eye is a taut and emotional thriller that delivers on the promises set in the first, gripping scene."
Finding Tessa (2021)
Jaime Lynn Hendricks
"Finding Tessa has all the elements of the best type of thriller-characters that are at once empathetic and suspect, a riveting pace, and a plot that unravels in one clever twist after another. Just when I thought I'd figured out what was happening, Hendricks delivered an unexpected turn that left me back at square one and frantically turning pages until the final scene. Readers of Samantha Downing and Gillian Flynn won’t want to miss Hendricks’ compelling debut."
Into the Sound (2021)
Cara Reinard
"A missing sister, a bad marriage, a woman broken and trapped?Into the Sound will have readers under its spell from the first word until the final, shocking pages. The tension is explosive as past and present collide in this intense, fast-paced, and twisty thriller; and Reinard's in-depth understanding of the ways in which childhood trauma follows into adulthood adds a deep and unforgettable layer to one woman's hunt for her sister and the long-buried secrets of their difficult upbringing."
One of Us Is Dead (2022)
Jeneva Rose
"The story of a close-knit group of wealthy Buckhead women whose lives are connected in a web of secrets and lies, One of Us Is Dead is a compulsive, stay-up-all-night read. Where everyone is both suspect and victim and the twists keep coming, this is one of those books that is impossible to put down until the final page is turned. Author of The Perfect Marriage, Jeneva Rose has written another gripping thriller you won't want to miss."
The Final Hunt (2022)
Audrey J Cole
"A twisty thriller that stretches to the far reaches of the Alaskan tundra, The Final Hunt is a one-sit read, and Cameron Prescott is the kind of take-no-prisoners protagonist you'll be rooting for to the final, spine-tingling pages."
