214 Palmer Street

214 Palmer Street by Karen McQuestion

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


A secret that bonds three childhood friends forever. The years pass, and the still water is moved by an outsider who, not knowingly, is about to uncover a decades-long cold case.

I didn’t see that coming, an interesting plot twist. But let me start from the beginning. Leading characters – wonderful, loved the short number of the characters that all played a significant role in the novel. Plot – predictable but well build. In an ocean of new thriller novels, it is hard to find an idea that stands out, and the author did a good job keeping the reader intrigued with current and past events. Now, the ending – yet again, pleasantly surprised. So tired of “and they lived happily ever after” endings, thank you Ms. McQuestion for staying away from his part, AND not ending the novel after the major plot twist. It was refreshing to learn of the post twist life of the characters. I am impressed by the writing and the idea of the novel. All in all, this was plenty entertaining read and it moved at a quick pace. Thank you, NetGalley for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
