Book Review: Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson


Genre: Psychological Thriller

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Her Every Fear was released a couple weeks ago and I couldn’t wait to see if it met up to all the hype!  I’ve noticed it on tons of book blogs over the past few months and knew it was going to a big book for 2017.

Kate agrees to swap apartments with a distant cousin, Corbin, for six months after he accepts a job in her area.  They plan for him to move into her London flat and for her to live in his luxurious Boston apartment.  Kate has recently went through a traumatizing ordeal with an ex-boyfriend and believes moving to a new city may help her break out of her comfort zone and overcome the anxiety she is feeling.  Little does she know, her anxiety will reach a new high when she faces murder, secrets and the creeping sense that someone is out to get her.

The story is told from the point of view of three different characters.  By doing this, Swanson allows the reader to understand the feelings of both the victim and the murderer.  It was interesting to read about the killer’s motives and how they justified their actions.  The transition from one character to the next added to the suspense and made me want to keep reading to find out what would happen next.  I did feel like some of the chapters were a little more detailed than they needed to be but overall really enjoyed the book.

If you’re looking for a thriller that gradually builds suspense and gets in the mind of both the victim and the killer, this may be one to check out!

Thanks for stopping by the blog!
