(148) Fallen by Karin Slaughter

Fallen

Publication Date: June 21, 2011
400 Pages


Karin Slaughter has become my faithful Summer friend.  Much like "Beach Read" authors, such as Elin Hildebrand or Nancy Thayer. We have come to expect new books from these authors every Summer. Karin Slaughter is one of those Mystery authors that I look forward to every summer, too.

Thanks to Karin, we have come to know Faith Mitchell and Will Trent quite well.  We know that Will had an extremely difficult childhood and we also know that Faith was a teen mom.  Now, nearly 20 years later Faith has a new baby, Emma.  She runs over to her mother's house, retired Police Sergeant, Evelyn Mitchell, to pick up Emma and walks into a nightmare.  They got her mother, but not after a bloody battle.  Faith is shook to her core.  She will do whatever necessary to protect her family, but what if she can't protect her mother from the sins of her past?

Once again Karin Slaughter has written an engrossing novel featuring my two old friends.  We got to see both Faith and Will move along on an emotional level.  Faith, with her mother and Will with the beautiful, Dr. Sarah Linton.  I have been reading the series for years, and even though I should remember all of the backstory, I don't (it sucks getting old).  Karin Slaughter does a great job of catching the reader up in a way that you don't realize that is what she is doing.  So have no fear, if you have never read a book by Karin Slaughter, now is the time to start.  You won't be lost.  I promise.

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
