She Was the Quiet One by Michele Campbell ~ My Thoughts #SheWasTheQuietOne


She Was the Quiet One by Michele Campbell 
Print and e-book, 352 pages
Published July 31st 2018 by St. Martin's Press

When twin sisters Rose and Bel Enright enroll in The Odell School, a prestigious New Hampshire boarding school, it seems like the opportunity of a lifetime. But the sisters could not be more different. The school brings out a rivalry between them that few ever knew existed. And the school itself has a dark underbelly: of privileged kids running unchecked and uninhibited; of rituals and traditions that are more sinister than they seem; of wealth and entitlement that can only lead to disaster.

For Sarah Donovan, wife of an ambitious teacher who is determined to rise through the ranks, Odell also seems like the best thing that could happen to their small family. But how well does she really know her husband? What lengths will he go to to achieve his goals? And when one dark night ends in murder, who is guilty, who knows the truth, and who has been in on it all along? She Was the Quiet One. Because murderers are almost never who you expect.

My thoughts about She Was the Quiet One ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first lines.)

First line—"They locked her in the infirmary and took away her phone and anything she might use to harm herself—or someone else."

This is a book that is going to grab you from the the very first page and will keep you turning the pages until you get to the exciting ending. I devoured this book and loved every minute of it's suspense and mystery. 

The story is riveting and scary, with plenty of evilnessso much evil and conniving going on. At the same time you have to admire the characters who are strong when they need to be. 

I've read one other book by this author and her stories are amazing. I highly recommend her books and I'll definitely read her again.

I received an ARC of She Was the Quiet One from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
