Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life – until the unthinkable happens.

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

I received this book from NetGalley and am pleased to be able to share my review as follows:

I thoroughly enjoyed this compelling psychological thriller.

The writing style is just perfect for me – well written and straight to the point without the long drawn-out descriptive pages that often find their way into books. This was written to be an experience where you are carried along with the plot so much so that it could be read in a single sitting. I found it very difficult to put it down and even when I did I was constantly thinking about the characters.

I would recommend this book without hesitation.
