    Explosive, Hair-raising, and Fast-Paced! Karin Slaughter is a master at suspense. Be prepared to get goosebumps.. I was first introduced to Karin Slaughter when I read her grizzly, suspense novel, The Good Daughter. I was floored. Instantly, I became a die-hard Slaughter f...

    I don't review Karin Slaughter books. There is absolutely no way I can be unbiased or objective when it comes to this author. I love her wicked imagination. Read the book. ...

    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...

    4.5/5 stars - This was my 4th Karin Slaughter, and it's further cemented her as one of my favorite...if not my favorite author. Most of her books focus on the relationship between two women, and this centers around a mother and daughter. This was easily the least violent/scary of her b...

    Some mothers lie.  Some are really good at it.  This seems to have all the ingredients for a tasty feast, not the least of which is having Karin Slaughter doing the cooking.  Even so, having sat down for the meal, there wasn't much on the table to make my eyes light up, nor to en...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I'm very conflicted about what I should rate this book. I very much enjoyed Karin Slaughter's writing style but I absolutely ABHORRED the main character, Andrea. She made me want to tear my hair out. She floundered around for most of the book and made the WORST decisions. She had zero ...

    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...

    4.5/5 stars - This was my 4th Karin Slaughter, and it's further cemented her as one of my favorite...if not my favorite author. Most of her books focus on the relationship between two women, and this centers around a mother and daughter. This was easily the least violent/scary of her b...

    Some mothers lie.  Some are really good at it.  This seems to have all the ingredients for a tasty feast, not the least of which is having Karin Slaughter doing the cooking.  Even so, having sat down for the meal, there wasn't much on the table to make my eyes light up, nor to en...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I'm very conflicted about what I should rate this book. I very much enjoyed Karin Slaughter's writing style but I absolutely ABHORRED the main character, Andrea. She made me want to tear my hair out. She floundered around for most of the book and made the WORST decisions. She had zero ...

    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...

    '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...

    Explosive, Hair-raising, and Fast-Paced! Karin Slaughter is a master at suspense. Be prepared to get goosebumps.. I was first introduced to Karin Slaughter when I read her grizzly, suspense novel, The Good Daughter. I was floored. Instantly, I became a die-hard Slaughter f...

    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...

    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. ...

    I don't review Karin Slaughter books. There is absolutely no way I can be unbiased or objective when it comes to this author. I love her wicked imagination. Read the book. ...

    3.4 Stars* (rounded down) Have you ever been eagerly awaiting an author?s new novel (whose books you recently discovered) only to be slightly disappointed? You waited a bit for it to come out, you read the reviews and had that feeling that it wouldn?t be quite to your liking but...

    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...

    4.5/5 stars - This was my 4th Karin Slaughter, and it's further cemented her as one of my favorite...if not my favorite author. Most of her books focus on the relationship between two women, and this centers around a mother and daughter. This was easily the least violent/scary of her b...

    Some mothers lie.  Some are really good at it.  This seems to have all the ingredients for a tasty feast, not the least of which is having Karin Slaughter doing the cooking.  Even so, having sat down for the meal, there wasn't much on the table to make my eyes light up, nor to en...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    DNF @ 20% I tried the audio but the voice of the characters was a bit too similar to each other so I switched to the book and it was reaaaaaally slow! I got bored and couldn't go further! ...

    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...

    I'm very conflicted about what I should rate this book. I very much enjoyed Karin Slaughter's writing style but I absolutely ABHORRED the main character, Andrea. She made me want to tear my hair out. She floundered around for most of the book and made the WORST decisions. She had zero ...

    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...

    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...

    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....

    From the internationally bestselling author of crime fiction, Karin Slaughter returns following (2017) The Good Daughter landing on my Top Books of 2017 with her latest ?PIECES OF HER, an emotional heart-pounding action thriller featuring dynamic mother/daughter duo. What if e...

    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...
