READ MY BOOK REVIEW
𝗥𝗘𝗩𝗜𝗘𝗪 𝗦𝗡𝗔𝗣𝗦𝗛𝗢𝗧: Nancy Bush knows how to write an intense suspense novel and it shows through her work! The Gossip is one of a kind and I enjoyed it immensely.
I used to read suspense novels like this one all the time before I got into other genres and these ones fell to the wayside. Thankfully, Nancy Bush has reignited my love for the genre through the River Glen series. This is the second book and while it CAN stand alone, I personally recommend reading the books in order because there are characters in this one that come from the first book. While they are secondary, they do play an integral part in both books, so I think you’d get a better reading experience if you read them in order. That being said, I enjoyed this one immensely. It’s a little darker as the plot does deal with perverse sexual desire from the killer (readers be warned of this if you don’t like that kind of thing!) but its extremely well written, intriguing, and suspenseful; everything it should be!
The one thing that holds me back from giving these one a solid five stars is that the book revolves around revenge because the killer was picked on (and gossiped about) when in middle school. That doesn’t sound like a problem, right? Well, it’s not. However, I think the gossip and the revenge wasn’t as prominent as the secondary mystery going on within the story (a big drug bust). I wish the author focused solely on this killer and the revenge he was seeking rather than adding in another layer of suspense that had nothing to do with the main focus of the story. Had this occurred, the book would have been shorter too which is something many readers like! Me, I prefer a book with 350 pages and under.
All that aside, this is another great addition to the series, and I hope Nancy continues to write more because I’m seriously addicted! I highly recommend this one and the first book in the series which is titled The Babysitter!
