Reviews Her Every Fear

  • Chelsea Humphrey
    I'm always cautious going into a severely hyped up book these days. It seems those are the ones with the most potential to disappoint, as expectations are at their highest. I'm pleased to announce that this book lived up to the hype, but for me it was in a completely different way. Her Every Fear was an unexpected read for myself based on how it's being marketed. I knew it would be hard to top the author's mega successful thriller The Kind Worth ...
  • Melissa
    A good story that could have been great, Her Every Fear is plagued with a mediocre ending and way too much repetition. What I did love about it though was the stalkerish vibe oozing off the pages. Is there anything better than a little creepiness to amp up the suspense? Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to stop me from thinking about what could have been. I just wish it had all culminated in a more exciting way.If you’ve read The Kind Worth Killi...

    Ahem. I have a late-breaking year end announcement to make:THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST-PSYCHOLOGICALLY CREEPY- BOOKS I'VE READ IN 2017!The story begins with a brilliant set-up. Corbin and Kate have never met, despite being second cousins. Kate lives in London and Corbin resides in Boston. After briefly emailing each other, both late 20-somethings decide to house swap for six months. They still never meet in person, since their crisscrossed flights ta...

    ”She had nervous, haunted eyes. Something had happened to her. She was damaged goods, and that was more beautiful to Henry than her lovely bone structure and her plump mouth.”Fear emanates off victims like a lighthouse beacon to those who prey. Fear kept so close to the surface of the skin makes the blood of a predator sing and their nose tingle with the heady scent of trepidation. Kate Priddy’s last boyfriend, George, turned out to be ment...

    "Life was good" ......or was it?....for Kate Priddy? Kate had come to Boston - Her cousin Corbin Dell went to London. They exchanged houses for six months. They were cousins, but had never met. As Kate said herself, "Life was good" . And now that she was outside of the apartment, it suddenly seemed ridiculous how much she'd been obsessing about Audrey Marshall's death and Corbin's part in it. If he had been a genuine suspect, the police would hav...

    3.75 ? 4?Second time reading a book from Peter Swanson. Every time I'm pleasantly surprised but also shocked at how dark it gets!I would recommend this one but I'm not sure if I like it as much as "The Kind Worth Killing". If you liked that one, you need to read this one too!
  • Kaceey
    This one took me so much longer than my typical read. I finished nearly 3 other books while reading this one. Kept putting it down thinking that when I got back to it I’d appreciate it more. Well…that didn’t quite happen.It was supposed to be a fun adventure. Kate and her second cousin Corbin were swapping apartments for six months. Kate would travel to Boston, actually her first time venturing to America. Her cousin Corbin would fly to Lon...

    I finished this book last night and prepared a review in my head. This morning, I think I'm just going to say I thought the book was contrived. It had some plot elements that were too convenient, some things that were just too implausible to be believed, and then rehashed the story from a different character's viewpoint. And I'll let it go at that.
  • Barbara
    Londoner Kate Priddy's last romance was a disaster. Her boyfriend George was pathologically jealous, and - after they broke up - showed up at her borrowed cottage with a gun. George terrorized Kate for hours, then locked her in a closet and shot himself. Kate was found two days later, suffering from shock and claustrophobia. After recovering at her parents' home for months Kate resumed her life, but was plagued by anxiety and panic attacks. It's ...

    Many thanks to the publisher, Faber and Faber Ltd and Netgalley for granting my wish to read HER EVERY FEAR by Peter Swanson. I was really looking forward to reading this book. I have to admit this is the first book I have read by this author, but I have his debut book “The Kind Worth Killing”, still to read.The story follows Kate Priddy, an English girl who has swapped apartments with Corbin Dell, her distant cousin, and has moved to America...

    3.5 stars. I haven't read Peter Swanson's The Kind Worth Killing, but I know that it was much loved by many GR friends. So I was excited to get access to an advance copy of Swanson's upcoming Her Every Fear. Kate trades her London apartment for her cousin's Boston apartment for six months. When she gets to Boston, it turns out that the young woman next door has just been murdered. Life quickly gets complicated and tense for Kate. For the first ha...

    I seem to be in a bit of a reading slump. I have all this glorious literature available from the library but I can't seem to get any traction on it. The last couple of books I've read have been thrillers that have been highly entertaining and diverting - just the jolt of adrenaline I've been needing. So imagine my delight when I found Peter Swanson's new thriller "Her Every Fear" in my mailbox last week! MORE MIND CANDY!!! A sugar buzz in book fo...
  • Carol
    I thoroughly enjoyed this newest, twisted thriller from Peter Swanson. It’s a well-written tale of voyeurism, obsession and murder. The book blurb compared it to the classic Hitchcock movie, Rear Window…which (I must confess) I’m old enough to remember. Although not as riveting for me, I was reminded of his other suspense novel, The Kind Worth Killing. There are similarities. They both involve sociopathic co-conspirators; and the author use...

    This story was full of twists and it was very intricate. I also enjoyed all the different POV's but this book lacked "something", not quite sure what.

    3.5 Star Kate needs to get away, she needs a break, and needs to make a change. Ever since her ex-boyfriend stalked her, threatened her life, and then swiftly killed himself outside the closet he shoved her in, Kate's been in a bit of a rut. A near death experience can really do that to a girl. Suffering from major PTSD brought on by such a horrific ordeal has made Kate an anxious lady ravished with panic attacks, constantly jumping to the worse...
  • Sandy *The world could end while I was reading and I would never notice*
    I don't quite know what it was about Her Every Fear by Peter Swanson that didn't quite do it for me. And I have thought long and hard about it since finishing this book yesterday.I like Swanson's style of writing - it is very relaxed, soothing almost. And perhaps, therein lies the problem. This book should have oozed tension, creepiness, and it just didn't. There are all the ingredients of a good read. There are panic attacks, murder, stalking an...
  • Lala BooksandLala
    My rating is probably 3.5 out of 5 stars. It was definitely more mystery than thriller; there wasn't as much action or plot twists as I was expecting, having read and loved the author's previous book 'The Kind Worth Killing.' It was still quite engaging, the writing was great, it was just slower than I wanted. I felt like the reveals were done a bit awkwardly; we would find out something and then the timeline would jump backward and we would have...
  • Jan
    Not as intense as The Kind Worth Killing, but still very entertaining. There is something about Peter Swanson's writing style that I really respond to. Maybe it's the subtlety...he isn't one to smack you in the face with big reveals or jaw dropping twists.They are still there, but the build up is much slower, therefore allowing me time to wonder, guess, predict, or anticipate.The plot has some holes to it, but overall I found it creative and uniq...

    My wish was so granted when I wanted to read this.After reading a book by this author before and remembering how quickly I read it because it gripped me, I was eager to see if Peter Swanson could do it again.I'm excited to say that he did!When I wasn't reading this I was either thinking about it or talking to my husband about what I'd read so far.Kate became so real to me.The trauma she had gone through and the legacy it had left I felt quite emo...

    3.75 Stars. I received this book through the Goodreads Give-Away. Another good mystery by Peter Swanson. While I didn't enjoy this one as much as his debut, The Kind Worth Killing, I would still highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys psychological mysteries.

    Kate Priddy, a young English woman, is recovering from the traumatizing events that unfolded during her last relationship. She and her cousin, Corbin Dell, decide to swap apartments, with her moving into his upscale apartment in Boston and him trading for her smaller flat in London. Upon arriving in Boston, Kate learns the news that Audrey Marshall, Corbin's next door neighbor, was found dead in her apartment. During the course of the book, we ar...

    This is the story of Kate Priddy, who arrives in Boston having done a house swap with her second cousin, Corbin Dell. Within a short space of time she learns that Corbin's next door neighbour has been murdered, and finds out that Corbin was involved with her. I enjoyed this, and read it quite quickly, but I had to admit to a few raised eyebrows as it went on. I found some of the book a little too unbelievable, but found it entertaining none the l...
  • Abby (Crime by the Book)
    This freaking BOOK. I completely binge-read this one, and I'm so sad it's over. I think this book is all about expectations - it's not going to be for everyone. This definitely isn't an action-packed or bloody thriller - if you're looking for something with lots of in-your-face shocking moments, you'll be disappointed. If, however, you're open to a mystery that's more of a subtle mind game, you'll be totally hooked. I was completely absorbed from...

    4.5 starsHoly shit aklsjdlakjslkajsda. This was so good. I loved The Kind Worth Killing, also by this author and I was eager to pick up this book too! But then I started reading all these bad reviews and I put off reading it for a while but I finally ordered it off bookoutlet for a cheap price and read it last night and aklsjdlkajslda. It was so FUCKING GOOD. The synopsis literally gives away nothing and there are so many plot twists omg. This is...
  • Malia
    Her Every Fear is my second book by Peter Swanson, and after his thrilling previous novel, The Kind Worth Killing I had rather lofty expectations. The story is told from multiple POVs, which I usually enjoy and which is done well, definitely adding an element of uncertainly, and which made me wonder which, if any, of the narrators was reliable. Kate Priddy agrees to a house swap with a cousin, Corbin Dell, whom she has never met. She travels to B...
