Stillhouse Lake by Rachel Caine

I never would have pickup this type of book if not for Kindle Unlimited recommendation. A story about a serial killer’s wife and kids seems a bit crazy and twisted for my taste. This month I decided to download the book and the audiobook and simply read it. To my surprised I really enjoyed the book and I am looking forward to the next one in the series.

What this book is about?
Gina Royal is the definition of average—a shy Midwestern housewife with a happy marriage and two adorable children. But when a car accident reveals her husband’s secret life as a serial killer, she must remake herself as Gwen Proctor—the ultimate warrior mom. With her ex now in prison, Gwen has finally found refuge in a new home on remote Stillhouse Lake. Though still the target of stalkers and Internet trolls who think she had something to do with her husband’s crimes, Gwen dares to think her kids can finally grow up in peace. But just when she’s starting to feel at ease in her new identity, a body turns up in the lake—and threatening letters start arriving from an all-too-familiar address. Gwen Proctor must keep friends close and enemies at bay to avoid being exposed—or watch her kids fall victim to a killer who takes pleasure in tormenting her. One thing is certain: she’s learned how to fight evil. And she’ll never stop.”

What do I think?
I can totally related to what Gwen must be feeling, not the part where she married a serial killer but on the part that she married a husband who is pretending to be somebody else. The sense of betrayal and insecurity is totally familiar to me. I really like Rachel Caine writing style. I can follow the character’s storyline and she made me feel scared for Gwen and her kids. 

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed thriller and mystery. Totally worth my time.
