SPOILERS for A Stranger in the House by Shari Lapena




Tom and Brigid had an affair before Karen came in the picture.  Karen faked her death and ran from a husband in Las Vegas.  She had set the scene that she had run from an abusive husband, but really he was a money launderer.  She stole two million dollars of his money and ran away.  She found Tom, who she loved.  But when the old husband found her, she DID kill him.

But, Brigid had followed Karen that night that she ran out of the house.   Brigid saw Karen kill him.  Brigid saw Karen drop the gun. Brigid then planted the gun back at the Krupp house.  If Karen goes to prison for murder than that frees Tom up for Brigid.

Instead, the police cannot prove that it was Karen who killed the man in the diner. So nobody will go to jail for his death.

Oh and crazy Brigid is pregnant with Tom's baby after she blackmailed him into sleeping with her.

SPOILERS for The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter



So many spoilers to share.  First of all, for most of the book I believed that Charlie's sister, Sam was killed the same night their mother was killed.   She was not.  But she left their town first chance she got and never looked back.   Only to return after Rusty was stabbed for defending Kelly Wilson.  Rusty ended up dying from his injuries.

While Sam had been shot in the head and buried alive by the two masked men.  Charlie had tried to run away but was tackled in the woods.  Where she was brutally raped - at thirteen years of age.  The descriptions and graphic and tough to read.   It turns out that one of the masked (who was assumed to be a Culpepper brother) was the very same man that Charlie had the one-night stand with the night before the shooting.

Kelly Wilson was pregnant with the principal's baby.  His wife, also a teacher, had enough of his philandering ways and held the gun in Kelly's hand and pulled the trigger.

SPOILERS for Hello Sunshine by Laura Dave



It was Danny, Sunshine's husband, who hacked her accounts and released all of that private information.  Not because he was mad about her brief affair, but because he thought she had "lost herself" with all of the lying about her past and her career.  Even though he never expressed a single concern before - even when she asked.  It made him a giant douche in my opinion.  They never got back together, but Sunshine finally did tell him about her pregnancy.

This one was a heartbreaker.   Ultimately there was nobody at fault for Nick's death except for Nick.  It wasn't his friend, Connor.  It wasn't the abusive neighbor.  It wasn't Clara's mother getting behind the will when she wasn't supposed to be driving.  It wasn't her mother's caregiver, although she was stealing from Clara's parents.   One of the houses in the neighborhood had security cameras that proved that it was truly just Nick driving too fast.  It was truly heartbreaking for Clara, and the reader, to realize that there wasn't anybody that caused his death.

SPOILERS for Ill Will by Dan Chaon




First of all - there is still no real conclusion to the quadruple homicide when Dustin was a kid.  DNA proved that it was Rusty.  Some believe that it was a murder -suicide by Dustin's uncle, but it could have been Dustin who discovered the bodies and said he picked up the murder weapon - then walked out of the house in a dissociated state.

When Aaron goes missing Dustin goes to Chicago to confront Rusty, who he believes is harboring the runaway teen.   While confronting him, Dustin pulls out a pistol and kills Rusty.

Aquil was the "serial killer" in question and even went after Aaron in the end.

The book ends with Dustin's older son being summoned to Dustin's hometown to identify his body that was found in a drainage ditch.

It was all just - weird.
