    Combine Psychos with a lot of stupid and gullible characters mix in some family drama and you get Hurry Home This is a decent yet predictable psychological drama about two sisters whose dark secrets lead to a showdown over a newborn babyAlex the “good sister” is a social worker in a small mountain town She lives with her boyfriend Chase who happens to be a successful ski model She cares immensely for the children on her caseload and has developed both a good career and a good life for herself When her estranged and troubled sister Ruth shows up on her doorstep pregnant and on the run Alex is wary of welcoming her sister back into life Ruth “the bad sister” is hiding some secrets She did things in her past that destroyed her whole family’s lives Or did she? Both Alex and Ruth have a lot of secrets Who is reliable and who is the liar plays a large role in the narrative Alex is immensely unlikable; she is self righteous preachy and conniving Ruth is likable but she has made bad choices and she seems unreliable as a narratorThis is a uick and easy read but it lacks depth Several characters are underdeveloped and come off as lacking in intelligence or knowledge of how the world works Chase is an idiot Sully the cop is clueless and Morris Alex's boss is a moron But my biggest issue was the lack of believability This book makes it seem like with one simple phone call WITH NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE a child can simply be taken away from their family The social services system is simplified the characters are simplified Everything is overly simplifiedChapters alternate between Alex and Ruth There is a lot of telling and not a lot of seeing This becomes most apparent in the strange exchange of dialogue where characters seem like they are talking at each other vs to each other However despite all of my issues I was entertained and was able to breeze through this book The final showdown between Ruth and Alex was fun to read and I really enjoyed seeing one character get her due I received an ARC of this book from Crooked Lane Books A special thank you to Madeline for sending me a copy

    This is my first completed book of 2020 and Roz Nay nailed it Before this book I used to wish I had a sister Not any Alex Van Ness is leading a wonderful life She has a job with CPS and her model boyfriend is about as perfect as they come Until one day there is a knock at her door Ruth Ruth is her older sister and all around troublemaker They have been estranged for many years and Alex can't help but wonder why she has come to look for her now She claims she wants to make amends and become sisters again but Alex is wary and perhaps she should be I really can't discuss the plot too much because you will be so much better off going into this blind I really didn't have high expectations for this book not sure why as I loved her debut but this turned out to be much satisfying than I could have ever expected so much so that I'm kicking myself for not picking this up sooner And you know what? Since this is my first book of 2020 I'm going to go ahead and give this one ALL THE STARS May it set the bar for my future reads this year Thank you to NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books for providing me with a digital ARC in exchange for my honest review

    35 StarsMy first book by Roz Nay and I can say I enjoyed her writing and story buildingThe story involves two sisters Alexandra and Ruth trust and their back history When Ruth shows up unexpectedly at Alex's apartment the drama begins the secrets from their childhood stir emotions and you just know something is not uite rightThis read like a mystery for me than a thriller There are pieces of the puzzles to put together but I was able to predict the ending Still an enjoyable mystery and a uick read with some twists that may surprise youThanks to the Publisher and NG for my review copy OUT July 7 2020

    35Alex has created the perfect life for herself not the least of which is her wealthy handsome boyfriend Chase She’s employed as a social worker for child protective service And perhaps has an issue with boundaries that finds Alex getting too personally involved with her cases But to be fair Alex is young enthusiastic and well intentioned An un expected knock on her door is courtesy of her sister Ruth and Alex reluctantly invites her into her home and life How could she possibly turn her away? Especially since Ruth is very pregnant But she does set one un breakable ruleunder no circumstance is Ruth allowed to bring up their childhood to Chase Interesting my inner Sherlock Holmes tells me there’s surely something to hide Agreed?This was a fun twisty debut from Roz Nay I did have a number of the twists figured out early but over all still a fun thriller if you’re able to suspend your believabilityA buddy read with SusanneThank you to Netgalley and Crooked Lane Books for an ARC to read and review

    As someone who is an only child but has two daughters the relationship between sisters fascinates me to no end That's truly the focus of Hurry Home which is less a thriller and a character study draped in elements of domestic drama While I was able to predict the ending I think the strongest aspects of this story are the claustrophobic atmosphere and growing sense of dread that something is not right between these sisters If you enjoy slow burning mysteries I recommend giving this one a try for yourself Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy

    Praise the Lord I found an amazing book that knocked me out of my two book slump This was probably the fastest read I've had thus far in 2020 I just could not stop listening Without a dull moment this is a dark tale of estranged sisters Ruth and Alex Alex is the hard working good guy social worker and when Ruth appears at her apartment door at 8 months pregnant and in desperate need of help she takes her in with reservations According to Alex Ruth has had a troubled past and is flaky and unreliable at best and undoubtedly has ulterior motives or does she? This story alternates from Ruth's to Alex's perspectives flashing back to when they were children when something terrible happens tearing their relationship apart and destroying their family in the process depending on which sister you ask Is Alex a reliable narrator or is Ruth? Is there to this then just two sisters at war? Is it something sinister?I absolutely loved this and believe it will be a big hit this summer if not for this year After wavering and switching back and forth on who I trusted initially this felt fairly straightforward for me about halfway in and i had a pretty good idea of the truth but I still could not put this down it was that good Normally if I have things figured out in advance it's incredibly difficult for me to continue reading but that was absolutely not the case with this novel I had to keep listening to find out how everything was resolved if it was at all I was fairly satisfied with the ending and can't come up with a single critiue for the novel as a whole It was just pure entertainment Talk about a dark tale of a true sociopath and the measures she takes to get what she wants in life This is one of those books that really makes you sit and wonder if you might actually know a true sociopath in real life I cannot wait for Nay to release her third novel and hope it will be sooner rather than later You will not regret picking this one up

    My reviews can also be seen at StarsAn addictive and thought provoking read Twenty five year old Alexandra Van Ness Alex lives in a beautiful apartment has a wonderful boyfriend and a job she is very proud of She is a child protection social worker and her first and only goal is to save children that are at risk To say Alex goes above and beyond is putting it mildlyAlex and another social worker Minerva are investigating a report of negligence involving a little boy named Buster Floyd When they get to the Floyd home the boy's parents are definitely not happy to see them Alex and Minerva explain that someone reported that Buster had been left alone in the car outside the post office The mother has an explanation that satisfies Minerva but she warns them not to leave Buster alone in the car again They schedule a follow up home visitMinerva feels that the visit went well and that what happened wasn’t a big deal but Alex disagrees She feels they need to be proactiveAfter a long day Alex is happy she's finally home with her ever cheerful boyfriend Chase They are about to eat dinner when there is a knock on the door A woman stands on the doorstepIt’s Alex’s sister Ruth Van NessIt’s been than ten years since they’ve seen each otherAt first Alex is speechless But when Chase leaves the room she speaks up“So why are you here?Ruth wishes she hadn’t come but she didn’t have any other choice She left Pittsburgh in a rush It wasn’t safe for her there She had no time to pack though she did bring something with her She doesn’t tell Alex any of thisThere are many things she’s not telling her sister Alex tells Ruth that she will help her but Ruth must follow her rules She also makes Ruth promise that she won’t EVER talk about the past to Chase or anyone else “Break any of the rules and you’re done” Alex worries that Ruth is up to something She’s also worried about the Floyd boySometimes no matter how hard you try the past just won't stay buried I really enjoyed this clever and unputdownable read The story alternates between Alex and Ruth's point of view Something happened when the sisters were young that changed their family foreverThe story had great characters some that really had me fuming and twists that I didn't see coming It really kept me on my toes I didn't know who to trust The parts that involved child abuse were hard to read However I don't feel the author went overboard in their descriptionsA twisted psychological thriller that gripped me from start to finish I'd like to thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of this novel All opinions are my own

    I thoroughly enjoyed this one but I can say I appreciated it as just a regular fiction novel rather than a thriller or mystery book After awhile you have a general idea which direction the story is headed so that aren't many I didn't see that coming type moments But for me that didn't matter much because I thought it still managed to be a compelling story Feels weird to say this considering it's a disturbing story but it was really entertaining Like a bring on the popcorn this is bonkers wayWhen I received my advance copy in the mail I had actually forgotten the synopsis and I chose to just dive right in without refreshing my memory I'm glad I chose to approach the book that way as I could just settle back and let the author tell the story without any preconceived notions However I realize not every reader likes to go in blind so I'll give you a tiny bit of the plot Alexandra Van Ness lives with her boyfriend in a resort town in the Rocky Mountains She has a job as a social worker One day her sister Ruth shows up unexpectedly on Alex's doorstep The two sisters haven't seen or spoken to each other in years Let's just say they have a past and you will have to read the book if you want to learn about it The big hook for a decent portion of the book is the mysterious past of the sisters You eventually get to learn the backstory and there is one scene that even I thought was pretty jarring There aren't many things that rattle me but this one did for sure And while it caught me offguard it was effective in making the overall story work well I wasn't able to predict the sisters' past but the remainder of the book for the most part is not entirely shocking But I liked watching it all unfold anyway Lately I have found myself struggling with my interest level in certain books With this book though I just found it to be an easy read that I was able to sit back and relax with and enjoy the show I would definitely read another book by this author again She's a good storytellerThank you to the publisher for sending me an advance reader's copy in exchange for an honest review

    Sisters The Competition is Fierce The sisters in “Hurry Home” have a LoveHate RelationshipAlex seems to have it all a great job as a social worker a Chase an incredible kind and caring boyfriend and Sully a great friendWhen Alex’s sister Ruth shows up on her doorstep pregnant and penniless Alex sees trouble with a capital T and yet she lets her in even though Ruth made Alex’s life miserable when they were young That’s what sisters are for right?From that moment on the twists and turns of this novel had my head spinning faster than a Roundup Roller Coaster Both sisters are wholly unreliable and neither can be believed Good thing I had my thinking cap on Though I guessed early on what was going to happen in the end it didn’t take away from my enjoyment A fun entertaining mystery that left me looking forward to seeing what Roz Nay comes out with next 365 StarsA buddy read with KaceeyThank you to NetGalley Crooked Lane Books and Roz Nay for the arcPublished on Goodreads on 71920

  10. Bridgett Bridgett says:

    Is it possible for a book to be a super uick read while also being super slow burning? The book sped by on my Kindle reaching the 10% mark after only a few pages yet the story was rather slow and dare I say kind of meh This isn't a suspensethriller it's a domestic dramaone which is very easy to figure out My biggest gripe was the dialogue which was not good At the end of the day this wasn't a bad book but neither was it a great book It falls somewhere into the average category bringing absolutely nothing new to the table Hurry Home is available for sale in the US on July 7th Many thanks to the publisher for my review copy
