Summer Suspense Round-up

Hot summer reads for the thrill seeker in you.

Wow! I cannot believe that it is August. It seems like yesterday I was getting emails about the hot summer reads that will keep you on the edge of your seat…or beach towel in this case.

I don’t know about you all, but this summer has been packed with some amazing books. Though I do like to break up my reading with different types of books, I have been spending a lot of time with the murderous serial killers, dealing with intense psychological twists, and the positively coziest of mysteries. Here are my top recommendations for this summer so far.

Summer Mystery Round-up By Victoria Colotta


My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A compelling psychological thriller that carefully untangles the lies, deceit, and memories all the while leave you questioning everything.

THE CHILD by Fiona Barton

Rating: ☕☕☕☕


My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A page turning thriller packed with family secrets and a look into discovering one’s true self.
Rating: ☕☕☕☕

My Sister’s Bones by Nuala Ellwood

My Highly Caffeinated Thought: This book is packed with suspense, twists, turns, and an ending that I didn’t see coming. Loved every single word.
Rating: ☕☕☕☕☕

EMMA IN THE NIGHT by Wendy Walker

My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A dark psychological thriller that pushes the boundaries of what we want to be true and what actually is. The twists and turns, the lies and manipulations of the truth, and being able to seeing the psychological damage that one person can do to all those around them are all the reasons why I loved this book.

THE GOOD WIDOW by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke

My Highly Caffeinated Thought: THE GOOD WIDOW is a tale of love, marriage, betrayal, and secrets. It’s darkly obsessive story is filled with humor, heart, and plenty of twists to keep your interest until the end. A must read.

Favorite Series

This summer, the latest book in the Tourist Trap mystery series by Lynn Cahoon, KILLER PARTY, was released. I love this series so much! This series is my go-to mystery series when I am needing a J.B. Fletcher fix. These books are perfect for those of you who like an amateur sleuth and a mystery that isn’t too intense and dark. Start from book one and keep going. They are absolutely fabulous.

Want more? I know I do.

Here are a few of the books that I have on my to read list for the next couple of weeks.
