The Girl From Widow Hills by Megan Miranda Review


This book instantly hooked me from the beginning, the plot of this book was so intriguing and interesting. One thing I have noticed with thrillers is there tends to be a popular trend of similar plot points but I honestly have never read anything like this book.

The gist of the story is about our main character, Arden, who act the age of 6 went missing and was found three days later in a sewer drain. Fast forward to her life twenty years later, she’s changed her name and moved away from where it all happened to get a new start on her life. But when she discovers a body while sleepwalking, events start to happen that makes her question if the past is coming back to haunt her and if what made national headlines was actually real.

The way the story was set up was perfect and I loved how you got to read interviews and 911 calls from what happened in the past, it really made it more real and gave you more information into what had happened 20 years prior. I loved the main character Olivia and how she was portrayed. She was still reeling from what had happened to her in the past but she was also taking life into her own hands and was a very strong character.

I definitely did not see the multiple plot twists coming and what I had predicted at the beginning of the book was way wrong. But I’m not complaining about that at all as I don’t like to be able to figure out the plot twists, I like to be surprised and in awe when they actually happen.

All in all, a great thriller that I highly recommend if you’ve enjoyed any of Megan Miranda’s past books. This is one of her best books yet and I’m very glad I got to read it!

Thank you so much to Simon and Schuster and NetGalley for the complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!
