Dead to Her by Sarah Pinborough Review


Thank you so much to Harper Collins Publishers for the complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!

This book was, well, interesting I guess is the best word I can think of. I’m only giving it 3 stars because I love Sarah Pinborough’s writing style and how easy it is for me to read. I never get bored reading her works and I feel that it’s fairly quick for me to read.

However, this book, UGH. I wanted to love this book so much more after reading Behind Her Eyes which has one of the best plot twists of all time in my opinion. As a general rule for myself, I never read a thriller’s synopsis before reading the book and this book immediately drew me in from the beginning. I was loving the characters and the slow storyline that kept me constantly guessing when there was going to be a big plot twist. And then I got to the end of the book and I was honestly confused, I felt like I was just hit over the head with a large book and had temporarily lost all coherent thoughts. I will give it kudos though because if that was meant as a huge reveal and plot twist at the end, I will give the author props because I DEFINITELY did not see that coming.

Other than the bizarre ending, I do like how the ending wasn’t rushed like some thrillers are. The whole book itself was slow in pace (but not in a bad way) so I’m happy that it was somewhat drawn out (again, not in a bad way). I didn’t love the characters in the same way I did in the beginning but that’s okay because I understand how it was all integrated into the story.

I still plan on reading other Sarah Pinbourough books because I really do enjoy her writing style. I’m just hopeful that the next one I read doesn’t have such a weird ending.
