Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for the complimentary ARC. All opinions provided are my own.
I don’t read many romantic thriller series that focus on the same leads so Rebecca Zanetti’s Laurel Snow Thriller books have been an interesting shift for me.
Visceral books propelled along by their protagonist, the aforementioned Laurel, who has an eidetic memory & is the possessor of numerous degrees, the Laurel Snow series has intrigued me ever since she first arrived home to an isolated part of Washington state, a place where serial killers have recently come out of the woodwork.
In book 2, You Can Hide, FBI agent Laurel & Fish & Wildlife officer Huck work together to solve a new series of violent crimes, all the while dealing with many external challenges (including Huck’s ex & Laurel’s apparently without-a-conscience sister). Relationship-wise, at the beginning of this book the two leads don’t really have a relationship but they do have a history.
You Can Hide delivers a decent mystery & twist & it effectively sets up the next book. While the tension between leads is still there, I didn’t really appreciate how they’ve lost momentum at the beginning of this one & how it happens off page—it feels like a womp womp moment.
If you’re looking for a romantic thriller that doesn’t skimp on the visceral, the shocking, or the keen observations offered by a genius protagonist, you might like the Laurel Snow series.
3.5 ⭐️. Out 11/29.
CW: brutal murders & references to sexual assault. Reference to abusive mother. References to infidelity. References to PTSD. Reference to one of the murder victims having had sex with a minor--according to the book it isn’t technically against Washington State’s law since the minor is 17. Reference to intimate photographs of sexual partners taken without their consent including in the case of the 17 year old.
Give me that HEA, please.
