Rating - ⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Arden Maynor was just a child when she was swept away while sleepwalking during a terrifying rainstorm and went missing for days. Strangers and friends, neighbors and rescue workers, set up search parties and held vigils, praying for her safe return. Against all odds, she was found, alive, clinging to a storm drain. The girl from Widow Hills was a living miracle. Arden’s mother wrote a book. Fame followed. Fans and fan letters, creeps, and stalkers. And every year, the anniversary. It all became too much. As soon as she was old enough, Arden changed her name and disappeared from the public eye.

Now a young woman living hundreds of miles away, Arden goes by Olivia. She’s managed to stay off the radar for the last few years. But with the twentieth anniversary of her rescue approaching, the media will inevitably renew its interest in Arden. Where is she now? Soon Olivia feels like she’s being watched and begins sleepwalking again, like she did long ago, even waking outside her home. Until late one night she jolts awake in her yard. At her feet is the corpse of a man she knows—from her previous life, as Arden Maynor."


The Girl from Widow Hill is a standalone mystery thriller by Megan Miranda.

This ended up surpassing my expectations as I ended up rather enjoying this. The plot was simple but was interesting enough to keep me going. There were a few things I didn't like which were mainly just character choices. Besides some questionable choices, things kept unfolding all the way until the end so it kept me immersed in the story and I didn't hate the main character which is a plus. The final reveal was also good which is nice because I usually don't like most mystery thriller endings.

Overall, this was a solid mystery thriller book.
