The Girl in the Rearview Mirror by Kelsey Rae Dimberg

Book Cover The Girl in the Rearview Mirror

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher with no expectation of a favorable review.

I love a good thriller and mystery and even an unreliable narrator at times. Mostly, I just love twisty books that keep me with them for the duration of the read. My attention span has really changed over the thanks to my phone! So when I have time to read, I often reach for a thriller because they generally hook me in.

I was pretty happy to get this ARC from the publisher and dug in a few weekends ago. Dimberg's writing style is smooth and pleasant and I was instantly hooked with the promise of a hidden shady background for the main character, Finn. Add in the political intrigue of her being a nanny for a rich and powerful family, and I was into it!

I did end up mostly enjoying the book and I think it's a good read for the summer when you want something that is exactly what this sounds like. The story definitely takes some interesting and surprising turns and you'll want to keep with it to discover what happened. Having said that, it did drag a bit in places for me and more importantly, one reveal was not as...awful as I expected it to be? I feel like this could have gone a little harder. Even so, it's a great read and I expect to hear a lot about it this summer!

The Girl in the Rearview Mirror is available in stores now.
