    3.5 Stars How well do you know someone? Andrea Cooper thought she knew her Mother, Laura. Her mother is a speech therapist who is a pillar of the community. She is liked and known by most people in their town. But one day at lunch, their whole lives are turned upside down. In th...

    Karin Slaughter has been a relatively recent discovery for me. I really enjoyed her dark gritty The Good Daughter, especially the way she slowly paints in the relationship and backstory between the two female protagonists. It was a nasty, powerful read. Pieces of Her is another slow...

    Karin Slaughter gives us a thriller that explores the role of the mother and the mother-daughter relationship. Andrea 'Andy' Cooper is an unambitious woman who has largely gone through the motions of living. She never completed college and she has barely been engaged in any personal re...

    It seemed like any other day. Andy was having lunch at the mall with her mother, Laura, celebrating Andy's 31st birthday. They were briefly interrupted when the relative of a former patient of Laura's stopped by with her daughter to thank Laura for all of her help. Then, without warnin...

    EXCERPT: Andy squeezed her eyes shut. Immediately, the images started scrolling like one of Gordon's vacation slide shows. Laura holding up her hand. The long blade slicing into her palm. Wrenching the knife away. Backhanding the blade into the man's neck. Blood. ...

    This was not at all what I expected. Instead of the usual clever, multilayered plot with deftly drawn characters, there's this overdone, disconnected, extremely unlikely tale that's more like an airport thriller than her usual works. The main character is tiresome in the extreme and wh...

    I might have had too high of expectations going into this one because I loved the author's previous book, The Good Daughter. There's nothing significantly wrong with this novel, but I also can't help but feel like there's nothing new or different that make the story stand out. Andr...

    I love Karin Slaughter's books and usually devour them quickly. This one took me a week to read. A week. It just didn?t draw me in and hold me there. I?m also struggling to write this review. The introduction to Andrea ?Andy? Oliver and her parents, Laura and Gordon, provide...

    Pieces Of Her by Karin Slaughter was a thriller narrated in two different time lines by a mother and daughter. A violent encounter with a killer in a restaurant has a devastating effect on their relationship and Laura tells her daughter Andrea that she must leave town. The story then g...

    Different is good, and Pieces of Her IS good! I am a Karin Slaughter fan. I thought a few of her previous books were graphically violent just for the sheer shock value, but Slaughter remains a masterful story-teller. I also like her stand-alone books better than her series. While I...

    Fast-paced. Intense. Confusing, yet stimulating. This book was all of that, and based on the one other book I've read of Karin Slaughter's, those are some of her trademarks. "Pieces of Her" is the newest thriller from Karin Slaughter, and having recently become addicted to her thrill...

    Andrea "Andy" Cooper thinks she knows everything about her mom, Laura. Laura has taken care of Andy for Andy's entire 31 years--perhaps to Andy's detriment, at times. Laura works as a speech pathologist and lives a peaceful life in the beach town of Belle Isle. But on the morning of An...

    4.5/5 Most of you already know that I?m a huge fan of Karin Slaughter, I?ve read all of her books and think she?s the queen of crime, one of the best writers around, so every year I?m always very excited to read her latest book. While I wasn?t disappointed with this one it...

    Another standalone from Karin Slaughter and possibly one of my favourite books of hers so far. A cross between a fast paced page turner and insightful psychological thriller, this was one I read fast, so caught up was I in Andy's story as she tries to put together the pieces of her ...

    'Pieces of her ' is a stand alone novel from author Karin Slaughter. Andrea Cooper thinks she knows everything about her mother Laura, but everything is about to change. When Andrea and Laura get involved in a violent encounter, Laura shows a different side to her personality. Laura...

    Karin Slaughter has done it again, what an amazing book! I have read and enjoyed many of her books and this stand alone one is fantastic. If you have not read any of Slaughters books before then you really need to rectify that.. get Pieces of Her!! Andrea and her mother Laura live i...

    This was a really fascinating read and honestly, I don't think I've ever read something like this before. But, I do think that out of the other two standalone books I've read from Karin, Pretty Girls and The Good Daughter, this was least violent, gory, and chaotic book out of them all....

    It seemed like any other day. Andy was having lunch at the mall with her mother, Laura, celebrating Andy's 31st birthday. They were briefly interrupted when the relative of a former patient of Laura's stopped by with her daughter to thank Laura for all of her help. Then, without warnin...

    EXCERPT: Andy squeezed her eyes shut. Immediately, the images started scrolling like one of Gordon's vacation slide shows. Laura holding up her hand. The long blade slicing into her palm. Wrenching the knife away. Backhanding the blade into the man's neck. Blood. ...

    This was not at all what I expected. Instead of the usual clever, multilayered plot with deftly drawn characters, there's this overdone, disconnected, extremely unlikely tale that's more like an airport thriller than her usual works. The main character is tiresome in the extreme and wh...

    3.5 stars When we first meet Laura Oliver & her daughter Andrea, they seem to have a close, dependent relationship. But make no mistake. These are 2 very different women. Laura is an elegant, self assured speech therapist in a small community outside Savannah. Andy is mousy &...

    I might have had too high of expectations going into this one because I loved the author's previous book, The Good Daughter. There's nothing significantly wrong with this novel, but I also can't help but feel like there's nothing new or different that make the story stand out. Andr...

    I love Karin Slaughter's books and usually devour them quickly. This one took me a week to read. A week. It just didn?t draw me in and hold me there. I?m also struggling to write this review. The introduction to Andrea ?Andy? Oliver and her parents, Laura and Gordon, provide...

    Pieces Of Her by Karin Slaughter was a thriller narrated in two different time lines by a mother and daughter. A violent encounter with a killer in a restaurant has a devastating effect on their relationship and Laura tells her daughter Andrea that she must leave town. The story then g...

    Different is good, and Pieces of Her IS good! I am a Karin Slaughter fan. I thought a few of her previous books were graphically violent just for the sheer shock value, but Slaughter remains a masterful story-teller. I also like her stand-alone books better than her series. While I...

    Fast-paced. Intense. Confusing, yet stimulating. This book was all of that, and based on the one other book I've read of Karin Slaughter's, those are some of her trademarks. "Pieces of Her" is the newest thriller from Karin Slaughter, and having recently become addicted to her thrill...

    Andrea "Andy" Cooper thinks she knows everything about her mom, Laura. Laura has taken care of Andy for Andy's entire 31 years--perhaps to Andy's detriment, at times. Laura works as a speech pathologist and lives a peaceful life in the beach town of Belle Isle. But on the morning of An...

    Predictable and Long! I?ve been a long time fan of Karin Slaughter, although it?s been a few years since I?ve read one of her books. Having never read a standalone novel of hers, I was excited to delve into ?Pieces of Her?. Mother-daughter, Laura and Andrea, are enjoyin...

    This was a really fascinating read and honestly, I don't think I've ever read something like this before. But, I do think that out of the other two standalone books I've read from Karin, Pretty Girls and The Good Daughter, this was least violent, gory, and chaotic book out of them all....

    Thirty-one-year-old Andrea (Andy) Cooper had rushed home to Gullaway Island from New York when her mother had rung to tell her she had breast cancer. To be by her side, caring for her through chemotherapy and the hair loss, the nausea and all that went with it was all Andy wanted to do...

    Karin Slaughter has done it again, what an amazing book! I have read and enjoyed many of her books and this stand alone one is fantastic. If you have not read any of Slaughters books before then you really need to rectify that.. get Pieces of Her!! Andrea and her mother Laura live i...

    This was a really fascinating read and honestly, I don't think I've ever read something like this before. But, I do think that out of the other two standalone books I've read from Karin, Pretty Girls and The Good Daughter, this was least violent, gory, and chaotic book out of them all....

    EXCERPT: Andy squeezed her eyes shut. Immediately, the images started scrolling like one of Gordon's vacation slide shows. Laura holding up her hand. The long blade slicing into her palm. Wrenching the knife away. Backhanding the blade into the man's neck. Blood. ...

    This was not at all what I expected. Instead of the usual clever, multilayered plot with deftly drawn characters, there's this overdone, disconnected, extremely unlikely tale that's more like an airport thriller than her usual works. The main character is tiresome in the extreme and wh...

    Fast-paced. Intense. Confusing, yet stimulating. This book was all of that, and based on the one other book I've read of Karin Slaughter's, those are some of her trademarks. "Pieces of Her" is the newest thriller from Karin Slaughter, and having recently become addicted to her thrill...

    Andrea "Andy" Cooper thinks she knows everything about her mom, Laura. Laura has taken care of Andy for Andy's entire 31 years--perhaps to Andy's detriment, at times. Laura works as a speech pathologist and lives a peaceful life in the beach town of Belle Isle. But on the morning of An...

    Predictable and Long! I?ve been a long time fan of Karin Slaughter, although it?s been a few years since I?ve read one of her books. Having never read a standalone novel of hers, I was excited to delve into ?Pieces of Her?. Mother-daughter, Laura and Andrea, are enjoyin...

    Thirty-one year old Andrea ?Andy? Cooper and her mother Laura Oliver are at the mall celebrating Andy's birthday. Fatal violence ensues and Andy and Laura get caught up in it. While Andy processes the event as a victim likely would, her mother acts with authority and experience and...

    4.5/5 Most of you already know that I?m a huge fan of Karin Slaughter, I?ve read all of her books and think she?s the queen of crime, one of the best writers around, so every year I?m always very excited to read her latest book. While I wasn?t disappointed with this one it...

    Another standalone from Karin Slaughter and possibly one of my favourite books of hers so far. A cross between a fast paced page turner and insightful psychological thriller, this was one I read fast, so caught up was I in Andy's story as she tries to put together the pieces of her ...

    'Pieces of her ' is a stand alone novel from author Karin Slaughter. Andrea Cooper thinks she knows everything about her mother Laura, but everything is about to change. When Andrea and Laura get involved in a violent encounter, Laura shows a different side to her personality. Laura...

    Karin Slaughter has done it again, what an amazing book! I have read and enjoyed many of her books and this stand alone one is fantastic. If you have not read any of Slaughters books before then you really need to rectify that.. get Pieces of Her!! Andrea and her mother Laura live i...
