Never Smile at Strangers by Jennifer Minar-Jaynes

Never Smile at StrangersNever Smile at Strangers by Jennifer Minar-Jaynes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Let me start of by saying, I just cannot wait for book 2! I am friends with this author [Jennifer Minar-Jaynes] on Facebook, so I asked when book 2 was out. I really just can't wait to see what the next installment is going to be like. Another case? I do hope so.

Opening the first few pages and getting snuggled up to start this new thriller, I have to say, took me right into a path that I was intent on travelling down with this author and seeing what her characters were about. Part way through, I almost came unstuck, but you know, this goes to show, don't ever give up on a book if it lapses because I realized, it was allowing for my brain to catch up and reach a time in place in the story that took me to another avenue.

The bit that almost got me unstuck was when there was a chapter that I wasn't expecting with a POV from the perpetrators input. Soon as that sunk into my grey matter I was well away. Those then became the chapters that were exciting, I wanted to see what was going through his mind now, what was his past about, why is he acting this way?

The disappearance of one young person in particular took my mind to....is she dead? will they find her?

I can honestly say that I was flicking the pages of my kindle readily to keep reading this.

This is her debut novel? Really?? Is there room for improvement! Flippin' heck if this is her first thriller, my God we are in for a treat.

One of my fav thriller authors is Samantha Hayes, this author comes very close.

An author to keep an eye on.......most definitely.


I need to thank not only the author for a GREAT story but also Amazon Publishing via Net Galley for allowing me to read and leave my review of this great thriller

Keep on the edge of your seats guys



When nineteen-year-old Tiffany Perron vanishes without a trace, the residents of rural Grand Trespass, Louisiana, launch a desperate search to find her. But few clues are unearthed, and before long another young woman disappears.

As locals continue to vanish, residents begin to discover that they might not know those closest to them as well as they had thought. Lies and insecurities quickly surface, leading everyone to question one another…and their involvement in the disappearances.

Meanwhile, an unstable, twisted killer is hiding quietly in their midst. Ever since his mother’s murder four years earlier, he’s been forced to raise his disturbed teenage sister. He’s terrified of her—and of women in general—and his world revolves around his fear of and obsession over them.

In this USA Today bestselling thriller, debut novelist Jennifer Jaynes delivers a psychologically riveting page-turner that is packed with surprises and will have readers guessing to the very last page
