Penny For Our Thoughts

Traveling Sisters Book Reviews. Join us on our adventures through the books we read

Howdy Friends!! I did it again and have changed the name of our blog!! I am still keeping the same domain name and just trying out the new name for now. I am taking a spin on Penny’s name and the saying Penny for your thoughts and using Penny for our Thoughts. What do you think?

Brenda’s thoughts

After hooking up with Adam using an online dating app, Wren believes she has made a meaningful, powerful connection with him. Three months later, Adam vanishes, ghosting Wren and deleting all his contact information, his Torch profile, and disconnecting his cell phone. Secrets, buried pasts, identity, and vengeance are explored as Wren tries to figure out who Adam is. The search for Adam forces Wren to confront her childhood and her father, who insisted his family live off the grid.

Things I liked

I liked Wren, she is engaging, intelligent, and witty, and I was drawn into her life and wanted to know about her buried past. Her actions and motivation were convincing enough to root for her.

“But the truth is, you can’t hide from yourself. No matter how hard you try.” ~Wren

Second-person narration is used as Wren talks to Adam. While this can be off-putting for some readers, I like the use of it.

Things I didn’t like as much.

The story’s climax was too drawn out, and it lost some tension and suspense to the story, and I started to lose patience with it. The ending is rewarding, and I am glad I held in there for it.

Lindsay’s thoughts

Thank you Lisa Unger! This was the book I needed to get me out of my reading slump! A gripping and unputdownable psychological thriller.

A popular advice columnist with a dark history.

I was engrossed by this fast-paced, unique, thrilling and suspenseful story from start to finish – it hooked me right away and didn’t let up! I loved the main character, Wren. There were so many unique and fascinating layers to her backstory that kept me curious and fully invested throughout.

Flashbacks were a brilliant addition and highly intriguing piece to this storyline. They kept the pace quick and added an intense amount of suspense and tension to the plot. I couldn’t read this fast enough!

I am a huge fan of this author and this has now moved its way up to the top of my list of her novels. I highly recommend and can’t wait to see what she comes out with next!

We received copies from the publisher on Edelweiss

    I have mixed feelings about the book. I don’t think I would put this on my must read list as it’s extremely picky, and not too many spaces! I need to get back into reading again. Enjoying reading the reviews! Helps my wish list 😉

    I really like the new name. I have a 2-year-old great niece named Penny and she’s almost as adorable as the dog! Just kidding, she’s a sweetheart. Enjoyed the reviews as well. I plan to read the book, just not in a big hurry.
