#BookReview: Heartbreak Bay (Stillhouse Lake #5) by @rachelcaine

Synopsis: They’re hunting a killer so silent, so invisible, that his unspeakable crimes are the only proof he exists.

A car submerged in a remote pond. The bodies of two girls strapped into their seats. The mystery of their mother, vanished without a trace, leads Gwen Proctor and Kezia Claremont into dangerous territory.

On the surface, Gwen’s life is good—two children approaching adulthood, a committed partner, and a harrowing past dead and gone. But that past is attracting the attention of someone invisible…and unstoppable. Trouble’s just beginning. So is the body count in this backwoods Tennessee town.

As threats mount and Gwen’s hunted by an enemy who pulls all the strings, Kezia has her back. But working to solve these vicious and unreasonable crimes will expose them both to a killer they can’t for the life of them see coming.


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review: Although the start of this one was a little boring it picked up pretty quickly and became a fast and suspenseful read.  The plot comes together to create an edge of your seat thriller. About a bigger picture going on in the overall series.  I would say that you could probably read this as a stand alone but it is much better to read it as a series.  This book about choices is one that you will not forget.  Not only does it have a note from the author but sadly the author passed away in 2020 after losing her batter with cancer.  Her stories will live on every time we read them. 


“The aggressively disturbing conclusion places this one far beyond the pale of standard procedurals.” Kirkus Reviews

“Caine’s fascinating portrait of a psychopath will keep psychological thrillers fans turning the pages.” Kirkus Reviews
