Home- Harlan Coben

Genre: Mystery/Thriller

For those of you who know Myron Bolitar, you would most definitely also know Windsor Horne Lockwood (best known as Win)… Myron’s best friend and one of the few people he really cares about.

After a decade of the high-profile kidnapping of two young boys, only one returns home. 

Ten years ago, kidnappers grabbed two boys from wealthy families and demanded ransom. And then they went silent, without ever returning the boys to the families. No trace of the boys ever surfaced…until now. One of the boys is related to Win and that is the reason he has been investigating for ten years in the hopes of coming across some clues. He is just not ready to give up unless he has solid proof that the boys are dead, but that changes when Win is pretty sure that he sees the boy in London. Myron Bolitar and his friend Win, believe that they have finally located one of the boys, now a teenager. They have no idea where he has been for ten years, whether or not he remembers the day he was kidnapped and most importantly… what can he tell Myron and Win about the fate of his still missing friend?

I loved this book very much and the author states the importance of friends, family and the true meaning of home!

Promise Me- Harlan Coben

Genre: Mystery/Thriller

This is kind of a hard book to review without giving away most of the main story. But I will try my best not to give away the suspense in it! 🙂

The school year is nearly over. Myron makes two neighborhood girls promise him when he heard them casually talking something about a party and drinking,  that if they are ever in trouble and are afraid to call their parents, they can always call him and irrespective what time it is or where he is, he has promised to not ask any questions and drive them home safely. After several nights, the call comes in at 2am, and the next day a girl is missing… and Myron is the last person to have seen her. Now he has to find her before she’s gone forever and that is not easy considering that he asked her no questions the last time he saw her, because of his promise of not asking questions or telling the girl’s parents. This is an amazing book!

Darkest Fears- Harlan Coben

Genre: Mystery/Thriller

I finished this book in one day because I had taken it with me when we went on a field trip to a college a little far away to learn more about the college when I was in eighth grade! 

I am pretty sure that Myron Bolitar fans will really be surprised by this novel because this is unlike most of the other MB novels. Myron Bolitar learns that he is the father of a thirteen-year-old boy from Emily Downing, the mother of the boy (Jeremy) and Myron’s girlfriend in college. Jeremy is dying and needs a bone marrow transplant. She comes to Myron in the hope of him helping her find the mysterious donor who vanished without a trace. Myron is definitely determined to help the boy, but when he starts investigating, it cracks open secrets no one would ever want to know!

I have to refrain from saying this book was amazing because I realised that I said the same thing for every Harlan Coben book, but every book of his is truly that great and I am really glad that he has written so many books! Also, I am terribly sorry for writing reviews of Harlan Coben books only, but I believe there is only 3 more left and then I am done!!! 🙂 If you read my blog on a regular basis, you should definitely try at least one of his books… You will love it!

Six Years- Harlan Coben

Genre: Mystery/Thriller

This is a stand-alone thriller and is not a Myron Bolitar series. Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched the love of his life, Natalie, marry another man. Six years have passed by hiding his feelings and keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone. But everything seems to change when he comes across Todd’s (Natalie’s husband) obituary, and he just can’t keep himself away from visiting the funeral. But, when he sees Todd’s wife…it is clearly not Natalie! Whoever the mourning widow is, she’s been married to Todd for more than ten years now and as Jake searches for the truth, he realizes that the only woman he ever loved, might not be who she had said she is. He doesn’t stop until he learns the truth, although his life is at a great risk… This is an amazing book and I was completely wrong when I taught I knew the end but didn’t when I got there.

As Grace Lawson looks through a packet of newly developed photos her world is no longer the same. She finds a mysterious picture probably from twenty years ago, showing four people she can’t identify, in the pack. There is one she recognizes though! It is that of her husband, from before she knew him. When she shows that photo to her husband, he immediately leaves their home and drives off without any explanation. She doesn’t know where her husband is going, or why he left or if he will ever come back. She also doesn’t realize how dangerous her search for him will be because there are others who are interested in both her husband’s past and that photo… including a fierce, silent killer who will not be stopped from finding his quarry, no matter who or what stands in his way. Will Grace be able to save her family? This is a really amazing book and I enjoyed reading it thoroughly! The suspense in this book is spell-binding! It could be upsetting that when you just think you know why people are after Grace’s husband the author can prove you wrong! 🙂
