Read if you are a domestic violence thriller fan Lying Next To Meis my first read from this author but I am thankful to have found a new favorite psychothriller writer Gregg Olsen had me hooked from the start His writing is very character emotion based that will really draw you in and make you so involved.Adam Warner was a first hand witness of his wife, Sophie s abduction What was supposed to be a Memorial Day weekend cabin vacation with their little girl Aubrey turned his whole life around Narrated through Adam, two lead detectives on the case and the other people who were checked in on the other two cabins, this reads like a crime movie or documentary that will really make you keep guessing and eager to find out who did it.I am amazed with how Gregg Olsen molded his characters I felt empathy for Adam and was really rooting for him Then, I was doubting him Then, I was believing him It was insane I was, of course, mad at Adam s father in law, Frank, who was the rudest of them all Also was mad at Helen, the perfect doormat of a wife.This was such an emotional rollercoaster but I am 100% happy and satisfied THE CRITERIA Blurb Hero Assumed as Adam Heroine Assumed as Lee Support

Telling The Truth About What They Know Or They Have Yet To Reveal All The Lies They Ve Hidden From The Strangers They Married One of my favorite quotes is believe nothing that you hear or see, even salt looks like sugar I thought of that quote often while reading Gregg Olsen s latest thriller, Lying Next to Me Absolutely nothing was what it appeared to be nothing Adam and his wife Sophie, along with their 3 year old daughter, have rented a cabin on a lake Next to them is another couple, Kristin and Connor Moss and on the other side, a grandmother with her grandkids On the second day of the trip, Adam takes his daughter out in a row boat to go crabbing While on the water, he sees someone abduct Sophie who is sitting on the shore An elderly walker also sees Sophie being abducted The grandmother and her grandkids arrive home to see Adam and his daughter frantically rowing toward shore and calls 9 1 1 The Moss couple sees and hears nothing But what really happened that morning What did anyone truly see or hear They all experienced the same thing, right Right Admittedly, I adore Gregg Olsen I ve read everything he has written, including his true crime novels When it comes to crime real or fiction I think no one does it better Lying in Wait is a tense, stay awake to finish thriller that had me hooked from the very first line While I suspected who might have done it but wait there s no way they could have done it it was a locked room mystery and too many variables and too many unsolved questions as to why Until the answers were there before us in the end and then just WOW This is a suspense novel that makes you really hate everyone while at the same time hoping that at least one of the bad guys isn t as awful as you think they might be There is a child involved, surely someone is good They have to be In the end, I sat staring at my Kindle and wondering about what I had just read while knowing that is exactly how I like my thrillers Leave me in awe Leave me in wonder Leave me speechless and Lying in Wait absolutely did just that Obviously I highly recommend LyinginWait to anyone who enjoys a great crime novel I also encourage you read Olsen s other work It s all fantastic Thank you to Netgalley, ThomasMercerPublishing and GreggOlsen for my copy of Lying in Wait. 4.5 StarsDuring a holiday weekend, Adam and Sophie Warner venture to a quaint waterfront cabin in an effort to relax and recharge their strained marriage While Adam and his three year old daughter are boating offshore, they witness Sophie being attacked then abducted in broad daylight Despite other vacationers in nearby cabins, the only two eyewitnesses point to one direction As the investigation into Sophie s disappearance commences, Adam is comforted by the fact his childhood friend, Detective Lee Husemann, is leading the case However, Lee soon discovers all the clues beget questions It is always easier to sleep at night if the monsters outside your house only knock when you give them cause Told from multiple POVs, each character has a unique role as the plot develops and it becomes clear that many of these characters act differently with others and when alone As the investigation continues, probing into these characters humanizes them, as we see their darker sides, but also points to possible motivations Everyone makes a choice on what they want to do with what was done to them Between the first and last page, there were multiple times when I believed I solved the case, yet there were always a couple details outstanding By the end, the plot points are fully reconciled and with a slant that I quite enjoyed Gregg Olsen is a new author to me and I definitely plan to read of his books in the future Lying Next to Me is a thriller that will cause the reader to continually question every character s motives This book will appeal to those who enjoy investigative thrillers that also delve into the dark psyche of its complicated charactersAn ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review This was a F BR with Twinsie Hawkey For reviews reveals giveaways visit Genre Thriller Type StandalonePOV First Person MultipleRating Adam and Sophie Warner planned to spend a relaxing time with their toddler at a cozy lake cabin on Memorial Day weekend What supposed to be a break from the daily grind and hopefully reawaken their marriage quickly turned into horror when Sophie was abducted in plain sight His only hope was his childhood friend and now detective Lee Husemann to help find his wife and the perpetrator, but things got complicated when nothing appeared as it seemed I didn t know that when I married her I saw her as she showed herself to the world fun, smart, sexy Funny how those things are often a smoke screen from one s true self. As a reader, I love books that made me question and doubt everything, and this book is one of them The story hooked me from the beginning with the desperation of a family that turned devious as the story progressed Personal connections are strong and powerful motivators, not distractions That s what this is about. I loved the multiple POVs and the short chapters because it forced me to pay attention I enjoyed forming my own theories which were a challenge in this book due to unreliable narrators I had a favorite character right from the beginning and satisfied with the ending It is always easier to sleep at night if the monsters outside your house only knock when you give them cause. Lying Next to Me is a story of ambition and deception that reminds us we never truly know the person beside us The story would appeal to readers who enjoy an engrossing thriller with unlikable characters F BR With Twinsie CC For reviews reveals giveaways visit I was immediately sucked into this book from page one and was torn between wanting to digest it in one sitting or spread it out to savor This book is four hundred pages and so enjoyable I read it in one night This one kept my interest the entire time, I was positively delighted to be surprised by the ending and was even pleased to be satisfied by it It s one thing to shock your readers, but it takes real talent to make it work with the whole story.This intelligent psychological thriller will have you turning pages long after you should have gone to bed Just when I thought I had something figured out, the plot twisted, and I had to read The dynamic, multilayered characters grabbed me from the moment they walked onto the pages The protagonist is as complicated as he is vulnerable, and even when I didn t know what he might do next under constant duress, and even when some of his decisions had me cringing, I still rooted for him the whole time Is he isn t he What s next These questions kept me reading and mesmerized.Lying Next to Me is a fast paced and compelling mystery starring an increasingly unreliable narrator Adam s need for answers is understandable, and with plenty of tension, a few red herrings and some shocking twists, Mr Olsen brings this perplexing mystery to an action packed conclusion An excellent mystery that I greatly enjoyed and highly recommend This novel is fast, satisfying and thrilling If you re ready for an intelligent thriller, this novel is for you Thank you NetGalley, Thomas Mercer and Gregg Olsen for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review all opinions are my own. LyingNextToMe NetGalley All my reviews can be found on my blog Interesting 3.5 rounded up to 4 s I hold my daughter tightly to keep her from the jagged shards of my wife s broken wineglass It s the only tangible indication that something terrible has happened I gulp for air The salmonberry thorns that clawed me as I ran up from the beach to the highway have shredded my bare arms The striations of oozing blood leak slowly and don t require a bandage, though one s offered to me Someone puts a blanket over my shoulders as I sit on the five foot high bulkhead that separates the crescent beach from the three cabins behind me It s a kind gesture, and I don t resist it even though I know it won t help calm my trembling I don t look up Instead, I sit there, wondering if I ve done everything I can. Lying Next to Me by Gregg Olsen is an interesting novel but it wasn t what I was hoping for If I m honest, there were several characters in this book who made it hard to enjoy it fully I am sure that the author meant them to be abhorrent but it made it difficult to hold my attention Having said that, I m glad I stuck with it as it was worth it for the surprising conclusion With thanks and appreciation to NetGalley, Thomas Mercer, and Gregg Olsen for this advanced digital copy for me to read and review. Revenge is a tricky proposition, especially when you are enraged.We meet characters who were wronged and could possibly go so far as to murder But who to believe Fingers point in many directions.This was an average suspenseful read for me I wasn t invested in any of the characters, because frankly, I highly disliked most of them This was my first Gregg Olsen book and was also a listen The plot line was a bit weak and not cohesive.Luckily, the storyline is told with four POV s, which is always a big plus for my own personal enjoyment.
