“A smart, twisty, original, and thoroughly entertaining thriller that hooked me from the very first page and KEPT me hooked until the very last. I’m a slow reader, but I literally flew through this book. I highly recommend to all thriller fans.” —Jennifer Jaynes, USA Today bestselling author

The story is about a young, beautiful woman, Meredith who was raised by her older sister Greer and a bond developed between them that was unbreakable. The two shared everything until Meredith married Andrew, a wealthy, older man, who literally swept her to a glamorous life. Unfortunately, that life was very lonely and led Meredith on a path of lying, secrecy and distrust... until she vanished into thin air...
This story moves between the past and present as the mystery of what happened to Meredith builds into a very suspenseful and complicated tale. Nothing and no one is what they seem....
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to escape for a couple hours, a thrilling, intense read which highlights the love of sisters... it kept me swiping and second-guessing every character in ‘The Thinnest Air’.

The story was solid and entertaining but not groundbreaking enough to really wow me. Many of the twists were too predictable and I correctly figured out what would eventually become the biggest reveal shortly into the story. However, I was most disappointed with the ending. I don’t know if a certain aspect of the ending was left purposely vague but it left me feeling a bit cheated and makes me wonder if a sequel is in the works. Also, there were several plot devices inserted to help boost the sense of mystery but some were orphaned, leaving behind unresolved plot holes. Others were just a bit too unbelievable. Overall, it was an entertaining read but a bit generic. With the sheer number of stories out there about a woman who mysteriously goes missing prompting a close friend or relative to play gumshoe detective, it takes a very special story to set it apart from the pack. This was fun and entertaining but not special. I likely would have rated it four stars if not for the disappointing ending.
There are a lot of twists and turns, going back and forth between the main characters for several months before Meredith goes missing. It is an interesting story with a surprising ending. Enjoyable book, well worth the read.

The characters are flat, almost beige in their entirety. None of them have any of those essential redeeming features that draw you into a character and evoke an emotive response. There is no colour to them and none to the writing either, it is just bland.
The plot line leaves something to be desired, it has been done before. Girl in love, has a fling for excitement, fling becomes obsessed. There is no tautness or excitement here and how it calls itself a psychological thriller is beyond me. There are no thrills, the psychological content is limited at best and way too open allowing you to the guess the protagonist well before halfway through the book. This author needs to read the likes of Andrew Mayne.
Having got to about chapter 20 I then started to skip three chapters at a time right up to chapter 38 so mundane were the characters and plot. It says something that the 18 chapters skipped through left me no worse off and I could still follow exactly what was happening.
Sorry, give it a huge miss.
The characters were a little two dimensional. They frequently seemed inconsistent in their behaviour. I found myself thinking that if a person appeared to be one way but turned out to be the opposite, surely a few clues or tells about their true nature should have been dropped in by the writer.
Initially switching between the voice of one sister and then the other felt confusing but once used to it, that device worked well.
Over all, I enjoyed the story and would recommend to a friend but it is not a novel I would treasure or re-read.
The police are involved but unable to find clues or even motive. Then a detective called Ronan also comes into the frame having had an affair with Meredith. Relationships are challenged. Will Meredith be found, alive or dead?
Suspenseful and engrossing.
This is an excellent thriller without "dragging out" the storyline and not least I didn't guess the end!
I would like a little more adjectives and perhaps more colours to fill out her story, but for now more books please.
