What happens when you spend too much time on social media and not enough time interacting with humans? Hmm well perhaps we should take a look. Camilla Brown has not had an easy year. She is coping with a horrific car accident that claimed her husband's life and left her with some serious injuries ...more
Despite some flaws, I actually found this book quite enjoyable until the last 15% where you discover what really happened to Valerie, and then the author takes us on a plot-twist rollercoaster where things are just getting thrown at you. That's where LFK got downgraded from "pretty enjoyable" to ...more

As readers will know that I have read to date every single book by Carissa Ann Lynch. I am a big fan of her mystery novels. So when I saw on Netgalley that she had a new one out, I knew instantly that I wanted to read it and the fact that lately I have been on a mystery buzz in between my other books just to break up the feeling of reading the same trope. Another reason I was excited about this book is that it uses social media which is one of my favorite tropes in books - the use of Social Medi ...more
There was not a single bad thing to say about this book.
While at first Camilla is a c ...more
But it's fun...soooo much fun.
I've thought about this, and I don't want to give anything away...so I'm just going to suggest giving this book a shot. It's well worth your time, and compulsively readable. Had the final 10% of the book been a bit more believable, I would have given this 4 stars.
3.5 stars rounded down

It’s the kind of book that creeps into your head and just won’t let go and very hard to describe and don’t you just love that kind of read. So as I read the last few pages I had a big satisfied smile on my face as yep this was a r ...more
Folks, I wish I could put into words how damn crazy this is but stalking is not my thing but perhaps we could learn a thing or two about it from our main gal.
Camilla Brown is badly injured both internally and externally from an accident that left her husband dead.
Problem is her internal scars run deep and are not as visible as the outer physical scars upon her face.
What many don't realize is she's now a loner and seeking a bit of excitemen ...more

I do NOT have the words to describe how I'm feeling about this book. Holy. Fuck.

But one night, Valerie posts a cryptic video seemingly in danger. And Camilla is the ...more

My thanks to Netgalley and the Publishers for my copy.
What a great thrill and suspense it was to read. What a great psychological thrill! This novel had everything in it. The thrill, the suspense, the psychological, and the twist is crazy.

I couldn't believe what I was reading. If had me in shock. Every p ...more

‘I was born with a scream inside me. Lodged between my heart and throat. Can’t swallow it; can’t choke it down. Can’t spit that motherfucker out. It’s stuck, like me … anchored to the in-between, slowly rotting in the core of me.’
LIKE, FOLLOW, KILL is the first book that I’ve read by Carissa Ann Lynch, and I’m looking forward to reading more of her books. The prologue hooked me in immediately – and the ending – Loved it! How the story plays out was predictable early on, but I wasn’t expecting the tw ...more
Thank you to #NetGalley for this ARC of #LikeFollowKill, which was read and reviewed voluntarily. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
The transparency of the author straight away is respectable and unreserved, which I appreciated. I think the best story puts most things right up front. If I know everything about Camilla, for the most part, and I ...more
