Review: The Thinnest Air by Minka Kent


I was super excited to get my hands on my first Minka Kent book after rave reviews from my gal Kendall – I really can’t wait to read her other titles I’ve heard such great things about!

Kent has written a suspenseful, very fast paced novel – she has a knack for amping up the volume and not letting go.

Meredith has married the man of her dreams – a much older, wealthy man – and after a few years into her marriage, she vanishes into thin air from a grocery store parking lot. What happened? Who’s responsible? These are the questions you’ll be asking yourself over and over again until the big reveal.

It’s these middle of the road reviews that are the hardest to write. I can seem to go on and on about books that I loved or disliked, but to say this was “good” isn’t really going to cut it. Don’t get me wrong – this is a strong thriller in its own right, but for a thriller junkie like me, it left a little something lacking in the twistyness aspect and the conclusion held a few loose ends.

I encourage readers to try this one out for themselves to see what they think!

A huge thank you to Thomas & Mercer for my advance copy.

A woman’s disappearance exposes a life of secrets in a twisting novel of psychological suspense from the author of The Memory Watcher.

Meredith Price is the luckiest woman alive. Her husband, Andrew, is a charming and successful financial broker. She has two lovely stepchildren and is living in affluence in a mountain resort town. After three years of marriage, Meredith’s life has become predictable. Until the day she disappears.

Her car has been discovered in a grocery store parking lot—purse and phone undisturbed on the passenger seat, keys in the ignition, no sign of struggle, and no evidence of foul play. It’s as if she vanished into thin air.

It’s not like Meredith to simply abandon her loved ones. And no one in this town would have reason to harm her. When her desperate sister, Greer, arrives, she must face a disturbing question: What if no one really knows Meredith at all? For Greer, finding her sister isn’t going to be easy…because where she’s looking is going to get very, very dark.

    I am not so into this genre. I mean I like it I loved Gone Girl haha and other mysteries and thrillers really call my attention but I think I will be giving it more of my time to this kind of books! I am so into the twisted minds of humanity XD

    I agree, a great read but the thriller genre is tough for us seasoned readers!! I need to go back to her previous books Kendie recommended too so maybe we can buddy read one (if we ever clear our shelves off 😉)!
