Book Review: The Kind Worth Killing

OK, so I know y’all said you didn’t care about book reviews BUT this is the first book I’ve read this year that I have LOVED and couldn’t put down. Also, finishing a book is a pretty huge accomplishment for me so documenting it on the blog is like my prize. Skip this post if you don’t love murder suspense books.

Title: The Kind Worth Killing

Author: Peter Swanson

Genre: Thriller & Suspense

Back Cover Summary: On a night flight from London to Boston, Ted Severson meets the stunning and mysterious Lily Kintner. Sharing one too many martinis, the strangers begin to play a game of truth, revealing very intimate details about themselves. Ted talks about his marriage that’s going stale and his wife Miranda, who he’s sure is cheating on him. Ted and his wife were a mismatch from the start—he the rich businessman, she the artistic free spirit—a contrast that once inflamed their passion, but has now become a cliché.

But their game turns a little darker when Ted jokes that he could kill Miranda for what she’s done. Lily, without missing a beat, says calmly, “I’d like to help.” After all, some people are the kind worth killing, like a lying, stinking, cheating spouse. . . .

Amazon Rating: 4.5 stars

My Review: Definitely a page turner! This book was full of suspense with massive plot twists, well developed characters and a great ending. I could not read this book fast enough. Highly recommend scooping up a copy!

    Sounds awesome – I will def pick this one up! I love book recommendations so there’s at least one reader on board for reviews 😉 I always find good books to read on these posts and in the comment sections usually. Have you read Behind Closed Doors? It’s a good, quick page turner! My book club all loved The Last Mrs. Parrish too.

    I love book reviews! I really like reading but I’ve been limited on time lately. I just decided to try kindle unlimited and listened to a book while I was working. I didn’t like listening quite as much as reading, but it’s a good alternative when I don’t have the time. Anyways, I listened to I’m Watching You by Teresa Driscoll and it was really good. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I loved this book!

    So this is a super random question, but do you have a sunscreen recommendation for men? I’m trying to get my guy serious about daily sunscreen, and ARGH, why is it so hard?
