Review: The Edge of Normal by Carla Norton

Publisher: Minotaur Books
Pages: 308
Format: ARC

Goodreads:  In many ways, Reeve LeClaire looks like a typical twenty-two year old girl. She’s finally landed her own apartment, she waitresses to pay the bills, and she wishes she wasn’t so nervous around new people. She thinks of herself as agile, not skittish. As serious, not grim. But Reeve is anything but normal.

Ten years ago, she was kidnapped and held captive. After a lucky escape, she’s spent the last six years trying to rebuild her life, a recovery thanks in large part to her indispensable therapist Dr. Ezra Lerner. But when he asks her to help another girl rescued from a similar situation, Reeve realizes she may not simply need to mentor this young victim—she may be the only one who can protect her from a cunning predator who is still out there, watching every move.

Kritters Thoughts:  A thriller were the reader knows the killer from the beginning, but is just waiting for the detectives and team to put all the pieces together.  Told from many point of views, the reader is able to get a full picture which was beyond entertaining.

My most favorite part of the book was thinking that it was concluding, but realizing that there were quite a few pages to go and clearly there was still a few things that were going to happen!  

I also enjoyed how the author was able to switch from character to character with such ease.  Although this may sound weird - I love hearing from the killer during the book while the rest of the characters are still trying to find out who it is.  Hearing their thoughts helps the reader find out the why which is what we are all wondering about when we hear that crimes have been committed.

Carla Norton is now an author on my radar!  I am still amazed that this is her first foray into fiction, it was so spot on!  I would recommend this book to readers who are already avid readers of the thriller genre and those who may not read it that often.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (or another book!)

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from Booksparks PR.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
