Follow Me Down

Summary: Mia Haas has built a life for herself far from the North Dakota town where she grew up, but when she receives word that her twin brother is missing, she’s forced to return home. Once hailed as the golden boy of their small town, Lucas Haas disappeared the same day the body of one of his high school students is pulled from the river. Trying to wrap her head around the rumors of Lucas’s affair with the teen, and unable to reconcile the media’s portrayal of Lucas as a murderer with her own memories of him, Mia is desperate to find another suspect.

All the while, she wonders, if he’s innocent, why did he run?

As Mia reevaluates their difficult, shared history and launches her own investigation into the grisly murder, she uncovers secrets that could exonerate Lucas—or seal his fate. In a small town where everyone’s history is intertwined, Mia will be forced to confront her own demons, placing her right in the killer’s crosshairs.

Follow Me Down is a rare find—a gutsy, visceral, and beautifully crafted psychological thriller.

Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

First, can we just stop and appreciate the cover? Gah, so interesting. Hints at so much in the book.

When I was emailed about this book- the cover and the summary sucked me in! And it did not disappoint.

Mia is not an entirely unlikeable character or a likable character. She’s a pill popper. She can’t be entirely trusted. And she’s got her own secrets. But she’s also loyal to her brother- knowing that there is more to this story of him supposedly being involved in the teenager’s murder.

Follow Me Down has a dark and gritty feel. Everyone has secrets. Everyone is a least a little of a liar.

What I liked:

Cover. Such a good cover.

The mystery. It was peppered with red herrings and half-truths and I alternated my theory every other chapter.

The ending. Wowza.


Bottom line: This book has a lot going for it and it should be on your TBR list like now!
