I tried the audio but the voice of the characters was a bit too similar to each other so I switched to the book and it was reaaaaaally slow! I got bored and couldn't go further!
“She had always believed—vehemently, with great conviction—that the only way to change the world was to destroy it.”
If you didn’t know before, you certainly will now—I’m a Karin Slaughter junkie with a capital J and a #slaughtersquad chick-a-dee (with the cat ears to prove it *wink*). It was over a decade ago that I picked up my first Grant County novel and found myself instantly enamored with Slaughter’s brand of dark. My love for the blood and guts splattering her crime-lines, enmeshed with ...more

When Andrea and Laura get involved in a violent encounter, Laura shows a different side to her personality. Laura is shot by someone who has spent the last thirty years trying to track her down. The gunman is stopped in his tracks by Laura who displays a coolness while overcoming the killer, while everyone else is left paralysed ...more
4.5/5 stars - This was my 4th Karin Slaughter, and it's further cemented her as one of my favorite...if not my favorite author. Most of her books focus on the relationship between two women, and this centers around a mother and daughter. This was easily the least violent/scary of her books, but I adored it. Video review will be up in a week or two :)
Explosive, Hair-raising, and Fast-Paced!
Karin Slaughter is a master at suspense.
Be prepared to get goosebumps..
I was first introduced to Karin Slaughter when I read her grizzly, suspense novel, The Good Daughter. I was floored. Instantly, I became a die-hard Slaughter fan. You can find my review of The Good Daughter here .
This is my second read by her, and this one was even better. It was more shocking. It was more thrilling. It was just more of everything in a terrifyingly good way.
Andrea is a ...more
Karin Slaughter has done it again, what an amazing book! I have read and enjoyed many of her books and this stand alone one is fantastic. If you have not read any of Slaughters books before then you really need to rectify that.. get Pieces of Her!!

3.4 Stars* (rounded down)
Have you ever been eagerly awaiting an author’s new novel (whose books you recently discovered) only to be slightly disappointed? You waited a bit for it to come out, you read the reviews and had that feeling that it wouldn’t be quite to your liking but just had to read it anyhow (or listen to it as the case may be). Yeah, that is what happened here.
For those of you who like Karin Slaughter’s books, you know that they are going to be gruesome and gory, and you think you’ ...more
EXCERPT: Andy squeezed her eyes shut. Immediately, the images started scrolling like one of Gordon's vacation slide shows.
Laura holding up her hand.
The long blade slicing into her palm.
Wrenching the knife away.
Backhanding the blade into the man's neck.
So much blood.
ABOUT THIS BOOK: What if the person you thought you knew best turns out to be someone you never knew at all?
Andrea Cooper knows everything about her mother Laura. She knows she's spent her whole life in the small town of ...more
