Opening Line: I think you’re the one I spoke to on the phone, the librarian with a voice so soft that I went out and bought myself a cashmere sweater.

Joe Goldberg is done with cities, done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now, he’s saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cosy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe.

He gets a job at the local library – he does know a thing or two about books – and that’s where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian. Joe won’t meddle, he will not obsess. He’ll win her the old fashioned way . . . by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they’ll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town.

The trouble is . . . Mary Kay already has a life. She’s a mother. She’s a friend. She’s . . . busy.

True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. He’s ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kay will do the right thing and make room for him.


Rating: 5 out of 5.

Joe Goldberg is back again and better than ever!

After the cliffhanger which Hidden Bodies leaves you on, I couldn’t wait to get stuck into the latest instalment and see what was in store for Joe…and oh there was so much more yet to come for him.

This one definitely felt more like the first in the series which I loved. Joe is back to his stalker-ish ways, seeking out his soulmate and this time he intends to do it the correct way…by that I mean no more killing – watching, installing cameras, infiltrating friends and family are all fine though!

Yes it did have a similar feel to the first book but with this one Joe has his work cut out for him as it’s not as simple this time. Firstly his love interest is a mother with a teenage daughter and plenty of other obstacles which will be revealed.

As always being back in the mind of Joe was equally mesmerising and downright twisted but I think what I enjoyed most about this book were the twisted moments the plot took. The last third of the book really ramps up and provides some moments which I truly did not see coming and what really made it stand out for me.

Overall if you’re a fan of the ‘You’ series then you absolutely must read this — my favourite so far and a complete page turner!
