The VisitorThe Visitor by K.L. Slater

Brenda’s rating & Review: 3 of 5 stars

I was lost in the shadows of the trees in the murky coulee with three of my Traveling Sisters reading The Visitor.

The Visitor is a fast, easy and entertaining story that started off a little slow for us but still kept us interested enough to turn the pages.

K.L. Slater does a good job creating mysterious characters here with our main characters Holly and David. Both characters had us feeling a little uneasy with one who is always watching and the other one pretending to be someone they are not. Like our characters, we started to feel a little vulnerable in the coulee and we kept looking over our shoulders for someone watching us or tracking us down. As secrets are revealed we started to feel a little less vulnerable and the story didn’t quite come together for us as well as we would have liked.

Susanne’s Review

Holly is a woman with a past which haunts her. Now she returns to her home town with an agenda. Finding a place to live is easy. A woman named Cora takes her in. Little does Holly know, Cora has secrets too. David, Cora’s next door neighbor lives with his mother. He keeps tabs on everyone in the neighborhood. He even has cameras setup outside of his home (not that anyone knows that) and he also fills a notebook with everyone’s daily activities. It’s kind of like a neighborhood watch to the extreme. Over time, Holly and David become friendly. When both of their pasts catch up to them, they need each other’s help. And then, well, something wicked this way comes.

David is creepy and his actions kind of scare you, but then so do Holly’s. She is twisted and wholly unlikable. “The Visitor” by K.L. Slater was a well written mystery/suspense though I found it to be somewhat predictable, which was unfortunate. It was however a fast-paced, easy, enjoyable read.

Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and K.L. Slater for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
