loss, clinging to a storm drain But she made it Yes Atta girl But the little six year old who suffered from compelling trauma didn t have any idea the story of her coming back will become one of the greatest urban legend story She got all attention of media, fans, stalkers, creepy admirers And guess what Her own mother milked her daughter s story to her own benefit, wrote a book, earned so much money by distorting truths about her daughter s traumatic experiences So let s take the year of the mom award from Carrie White s mother Margaret and give that to this lovely mother who stole her own daughter s childhood So little girl, once upon a time Arden Maynor and now Olivia, changed her name to have clean slate and brand new life without media s impact and strange admirers love and hate letters She is estranged with her mother, working at hospital, living at a cottage in the middle of nowhere and has a protector and wild old neighbor Rick I visualized him as Tim Robbins after seeing his performance at Castle Rock She has good friends, a professor ex, busy work schedule But one day she got a box which is worse than Pandora s because she finds out her mother is dead and there are several things inside of it can trigger her threatening, vicious memories about her past and lost 3 days Unfortunately she finds out she is not gonna get away from who she is because her night terrors return back and she starts sleepwalking again And later, she wakes up again she finds herself next to corpse outside her home The dead man is coming from her past is ready to haunt her forever So did she kill the man and forget it If she doesn t, who did it Why doesn t she remember anything about her disappearance There are so many holes about her story and one of her best friend quits from her job and disappears without telling her anything And the dead man s identity comes out She cannot beconfused and terrified So what s gonna happen Whodunit I have to admit that I was going between 2 to 3 stars at the beginning because I thought the killer s identity was so obvious I was trying to decide between two people But guess what ENDING OF THIS BOOK IS FANF KINGTASTIC IT KILLED MY SPIDER SENSES LITERALLY And last quarter of the book was so fast pacing I didn t have enough nail to bite but I bit my pillows and my husband found me covered in feathers when you came home from business trip, took my pictures and posted as birdwoman.But it s worth it I loved the conclusion of the story Pacing, writing style and plot were captivating This is gonna be one of my favorite Megan Miranda

PUBLICATION DAY I enjoyed one of this author s previous books, All The Missing Girls so I thought I d give this one a try I m glad that I did Although it started off a bit slowly, by 30 pages I was invested in the story.Can you imagine having something so traumatic happen in your childhood that your memory has been completely blocked That s what happened to Arden Maynor At six years of age she created quite a sensation in her small town of Widow Hills She was known by her mother to sleepwalk on occasion One morning her mother wakes to find Arden missing and a terrible rainstorm raging Eventually, 3 days later, Arden was found, holding on to the grate of an outlet for part of the drainage system in the town It was considered almost a miracle that she could survive the raging waters for such a long time and to be found by her rescuer, Sean Coleman.Afterwards she was a marked girl Wherever she went through her life, until college, she was known as the girl from Widow Hills Her mother seemed to enjoy the notoriety, she wrote a book that sold well She went on talk shows and made lots of money off of Arden s story, but somehow the money, in the end, was gone Arden as a young woman starting college decided to shed her past history, changed her name and got a good education She never wanted to see her mother again, she felt that her mother had made a lot of money on her story of trauma and then in the end lost it all, she was no support to Olivia, they were very different people.Upon graduation Arden, now called Olivia, is enjoying a job as part of hospital administration and a lovely older home somewhat isolated in the woods where she enjoys being alone, enjoys her solitude She finds out, rather traumatically, that her mother had died 7 months previously and she hadn t known it She is left with nothing but a box of memories that her mother kept Nothing means much to Olivia and she puts it away in her closet.Olivia has a great neighbor, an older man named Rick, and they both look out for each other She is doing well and is happy when she fears that the sleepwalking has returned One night she finds herself outside and stumbles upon a body She runs to Rick who does everything he can to support her.The past has a way of catching up to you and that is what happens in this story Without gettinginto the plot I can tell you that there is a myriad of characters, well described and believable My favorite is probably the young police woman who is determined to find out what really happened that night, who the dead man is and what happened to him.The ending of this thriller was a good one and I didn t see it coming Throughout the story it often seemed as though everyone we are introduced to could possibly be the killer, but nothing really stuck In the end my suspicions were wrong and that was a great way to end this page turner of a novel.I received an ARC of this novel from the publisher through Edelweiss I actually

find herself with a dead body.Narrated by Olivia in the present, media transcripts, newspaper reports, book excerpts, voice mails, piece together a fragmented past Olivia is an unreliable narrator, and there are a lot of holes in her story, some of which are left unresolved in the end After not loving Megan Miranda s past two novels, I went into this one with low expectations If I didn t like this book, I was going to be done reading books by MM I was pleasantly surprised when I got hooked early on and found myself enjoying this Similar to other MM novels, this one moves slowly, but at the same time, there s enough intrigue surrounding Olivia s past and current events to make it a page turner There are two major mysteries, one involving Olivia s past, the other in the present Part of the mystery is easy to solve, while other elements threw me for a loop Other parts were left unresolved, which might have been intentional, but I wanted answers The ending was also a bit rushed At the same time, the mysteries kept me riveted Overall, The Girl from Widow Hills is a solid thriller, and I will definitely be reading Megan Miranda s next bookI received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review
