I received my complimentary copy of Dead To Her by Sarah Pinborough from William Morrow, care of TLC Book Tours. The views are mine and of my own choice. Sarah Pinborough creates complex characters that take you on a whirlwind of adventure. My brain is still wrapping around the ending. If you enjoy Gone Girl, then you may enjoy this Southern thriller. Pinborough is a master of the psychological thriller. Once you read one of novels you’ll be greedy for more.
