I enjoyed the story. I received the book’s free copy in return for a review from #NetGalley. Thanks to #BooksGoSocial for sharing this book with me. The story, the female lead, the paranormal side and the suspense are a huge plus to this story.
The Woman in the Mirror by Rebecca James is one of the best suspense thriller I read in the recent times.
Back in 1947, Alice gets a job as a governess to the twins of Winterbourne. She can’t help falling for the Captain. But before she could dream any further, the house starts playing weird games. Just like the other women before her in Winterbourne, Alice loses her sanity and ends up in an asylum.
In the present day, Rachel in America receives a letter about Winterbourne property she acquired after death of her family. Being an adopted child, she never knew her roots but always wanted to find out her lineage. She decides to go to England to find about her family. Rachel finally finds out about her family, and the curse upon the de Greys.
This is a gripping novel with amazing twists. The detailing took my breath away. I couldn’t sleep at nights and the story seemed to bring a slight shiver down my spine. Extremely well written. The female leads are incredible. A must read, I must say! The book will be up for sale from March 17th, 2020.
Special thanks to Edelweiss Plus and Minotaur Books for sharing the ARC copy with me.

You must read the book to know the answers.
A compelling thriller with wonderful characters. Thumbs up to the author. He drew the plot in an excellent way.
Girl From The Tree House by Gudrun Frerichs is an extra ordinary thriller. I believe the author being a psychotherapist herself wrote this story in a great detail especially in the perspective of a person who is suffering from Dissociative Identity Disaster. I can’t imagine how much of a shock it is for anyone who realized how false her whole thirty years of life was.
I loved every single personality of Elizabeth. The multiple personalities inside Elizabeth call themselves ‘The Tribe’ and they each come to the rescue of Elizabeth on various occasions. Elizabeth’s fight for her sanity and freedom is incredible.
Girl From The Tree House is the most complex story I read in the recent times but don’t let the complex get you. I’m sure every single reader can relate themselves to at least one or two of the multiple personalities of Elizabeth. A well written and extremely insightful book. Definitely one of the best psychological thriller released this year.

Laguna by A’gata Green is a little different from regular psychological thrillers. I would say, it is more passionate thriller. Anastasia falls head over heels for Alejandro. There is love, passion and craze in their relationship, but there is a lack of commitment from Alejandro. Anastasia waits almost all her life for this but Alejandro keeps coming and going. Talking about the title of the book, Laguna is particularly a ssexual technique that very few men know. There are some scenes in the book the explain this technique in detail but I personally refuse to call this book erotic just because of this title. This book is so much more than erotic. The pain that the female goes through is well described by the author, the wait and the hopelessness made my heart clench.
Laguna is about a woman’s love, heartbreak and mending it.
