Pieces of Her Reviews
Different is good, and Pieces of Her IS good!
I am a Karin Slaughter fan. I thought a few of her previous books were graphically violent just for the sheer shock value, but Slaughter remains a masterful story-teller. I also like her stand-alone books better than her series. While I adore Amanda and Will, too much more of Sarah's perfection would make me ill. Every book has a reader for them and those who adore Slaughter's series most likely will find this book too different for their tastes. I, ...more
This was a really fascinating read and honestly, I don't think I've ever read something like this before. But, I do think that out of the other two standalone books I've read from Karin, Pretty Girls and The Good Daughter, this was least violent, gory, and chaotic book out of them all. But I still enjoyed it nonetheless.
Full review to come!

Best Karin Slaughter yet!
Thirty-one-year-old Andrea (Andy) Cooper had rushed home to Gullaway Island from New York when her mother had rung to tell her she had breast cancer. To be by her side, caring for her through chemotherapy and the hair loss, the nausea and all that went with it was all Andy wanted to do. Now Laura was in remission, Andy knew it was time to plan for her future; to move on. But the day she and her mother were in the mall café chatting over coffee and a young man bent on murder walked through the do ...more
How well do you know someone?
Andrea Cooper thought she knew her Mother, Laura. Her mother is a speech therapist who is a pillar of the community. She is liked and known by most people in their town. But one day at lunch, their whole lives are turned upside down. In the face of danger, Laura jumps into action and Andrea (and the rest of the world) gets to see another side of her Mother. Just who is this woman? Certainly not the woman that Andrea has known her entire life!

From the internationally bestselling author of crime fiction, Karin Slaughter returns following (2017) The Good Daughter landing on my Top Books of 2017 with her latest —PIECES OF HER, an emotional heart-pounding action thriller featuring dynamic mother/daughter duo.
What if everything you thought you knew about your quiet, middle-aged mother was wrong?
First, let me begin by saying: "My nerves are fried after reading PIECES OF HER—this is one INTENSE novel! Can you really truly escape your pa ...more
5 ☆ Slaughter hit a home run with Pieces of Her.. I just love when a book keeps me on my toes guessing! The past collides with the present when breast cancer survivor Laura “saves the day” at a local mall cafe while eating with daughter Andy. An overnight media sensation due to a home video taken of the killings in progress shows Laura taking out the shooter. Not good. Someone’s now trying to snuff out Laura leaving Andy scared and on the run. Riveting and entertaining!
“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
