Title: She’s Not Here

Author: Mandi Lynn

Genre: Thriller

Review: I had the awesome opportunity to get an early copy of She’s Not Here, and let me tell you, I was not ready for this book.

The story follows Willow, a hospital worker that was forced to watch her father slowly deteriorate due to his Alzheimer’s. After he passes away, Willow is desperate to find a cure. She begins experimenting on a young girl, injected her with a serum that mimics the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. It’s only a matter of time before the truth comes to light  — but by then, will it be too late?

I loved this book. I’m a sucker for a good thriller, and She’s Not Here was everything I was looking for. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time with twists and turns I never expected. The characters drive the plot and, even though she sometimes makes bad choices, you can’t help but feel for Willow. She’s been through a terrible tragedy and her mind is fogged with grief.

The writing was easy to read and flowed well, Lynn’s writing improving with every book she completes. She’s Not Here definitely stood out from Lynn’s other work — in a good way. It was a major shift in tone to what she’s written previously (she has two other works published in the fantasy genre) but she excelled in thriller as well. It really showcased her diversity as a writer.

If you’re searching for a dark, edgy read, look no further than She’s Not Here. It’s available for preorder now on Amazon and will be available in Kindle and paperback formats on October 2nd. If you’re interested, you can check out the book here.
