    3.5 Stars!!!I have heard the best things about Minka Kent from other book lovers, so I was beyond excited to read my first book by her, The Thinnest Air! It was a fast-paced thriller that was hard to put down! Kent is an incredible writer, and I really enjoyed the central characters in this book. This was a buddy read with Kendall and Holly, and we all had different theories about what was really going on throughout the book—and none of us were...

    So, let me start off by saying how much of a huge fan I am of Minka Kent. I remember running across her debut novel The Memory Watcher on my kindle and I fell in love with her writing style! So, naturally I was extremely excited to get my hands on Minka's third book! But, I am going to be honest in that this was my least favorite novel that she has published. What I love about Kent? She flawlessly always grabs her readers in from page one and of ...

    4 Fast Paced Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟This was a fast paced page turning psychological thriller that started with a bang and ended with a fizzle... I started this book with lowered expectations... five of my trusted book Besties read this before me, and I knew they were all disappointed.... and I want to thank all of them for lowering my expectations, because I think I enjoyed this book so much more because of that.... Truly for me up until about 82...

    4.5*Let me start off by saying, what a pleasant surprise this book was. I’d been putting off reading this one after seeing so many mixed reviews. I desperately wanted a genuinely, thrilling read. (And who doesn’t?) So…from the start to the very last words, this one fully delivered. Thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it! This is the second book I’ve read by Minka Kent, the first being The Memory Watcher and I enjoyed this one equally as much...

    3.5 stars to The Thinnest Air! 🌟 🌟 🌟.5Minka Kent is a beloved author of my friend, Kendall’s, and The Thinnest Air is my first book by Kent. Meredith Price considers herself lucky. She has been living a life of luxury married to her husband and living in a resort town. The catch: she’s gotten bored with it all, and then she vanishes into thin air. When her car is found at a local grocery store, there is no sign of foul play. So did s...

    I was super excited to get my hands on my first Minka Kent book after rave reviews from my gal Kendall - I really can’t wait to read her other titles I’ve heard such great things about!Kent has written a suspenseful, very fast paced novel - she has a knack for amping up the volume and not letting go. Meredith has married the man of her dreams - a much older, wealthy man - and after a few years into her marriage, she vanishes into thin air fro...

    Suspenseful! This is my third book by this author. She has a way of building suspense that is completely addictive. I was thrilled when I saw she had a new book coming out.This one involves a missing wife and the search to find her. This produced a lot of page turning on my part and my mind imagining some crazy elaborate, tangled twist (it just didn't happen for me).  I thought there were so many possibilities for a completely mind-bending turn....

    4.0 Stars— I decided to read another Kindle First selection, “The Thinnest Air” by Minka Kent after reading a review of the book on-line. This is the first book I have ever read by Kent, and I have to say that I was very impressed. The book is told from two different perspectives: Meredith and her life story prior to her disappearance, and her sister, Greer, who tells the reader what happened from the date of her sister’s disappearance fo...

    I'm glad this was a free book. With all of the five-star reviews, I wonder if I didn't miss something, but, there was nothing original in this book. It was full of clichés and stereotypes, and it wasn't very well-written.

    Minka Kent is one of those authors who I think I’ll always follow closely based solely on the fact that she writes highly addictive and entertaining stories that I’m able to devour in a few hours. I’m always hooked within the first few pages and find her books to be incredibly hard for me to put down, what’s better than that?! While the bulk of this one was fantastic the ending was lackluster and left me wanting more making this my least ...

    2.5 stars I guess lol. This was a free book for me with Amazon Prime this month and I’m very happy I didn’t actually buy it. I really enjoyed Minka’s book, The Perfect Roommate, but this one just irritated me so much. I didn’t like any of the characters. I maybe could’ve liked Meredith but I don’t think I had a chance to get to know her all that well. Greer, the main character, in my opinion, was so annoying. And the book was chock fu...

    3-1/2 Stars I’m not often one to compare books against each other. I don’t like to do that. “All art is inspired by other art” and so on and so forth. But once in a while it seems almost impossible not to compare. About the first half or so of The Thinnest Air has a lot of similarities with Gone Girl. I mean a lot, a lot. I’m tempted to list them here but I want to keep this review spoiler free so I will not do that. I personally happen...

    Not a fan at all of this book. The characters were vapid and the story line was just one that has been tried a number of times. For me unfortunately, this was not one of those books that kept one reading into the middle of the night.I know this author has written a really great book before this. For me, this book was not great at all, so my recommendation is to give this one a bye and move onto a book that is a thriller that will truly thrill you...

    This is my first book by Minka Kent and I must say I did enjoy reading it. The book is very well written with good editing. (Thankfully).The story followed two sisters pov throughout the book and there were many flashbacks for each one. Character development was very good and easy to follow. There were many repetitious statements and thoughts used too frequently which I found somewhat annoying yet it didn't take away from the story. The book real...

    I’ve had a rough start with Kindle Firsts. It’s a great concept- prime members getting access to books FOR FREE about a month before their scheduled release date. I dig it. I dig free books. But the first few I tried that sounded awesome were complete garbage. I stopped looking at the emails that told me they were available for a few months. But July’s picks sounded promising, so I took a chance.When 20-something Meredith gets married to a ...

    Advanced Reading Copy For an Honest ReviewSuspense is definitely in my top two favorite Genres, but it is so hard sometimes to find a good suspense thriller, BUT every single time I see Minka Kent is coming out with a new book I get so excited because I know it will be amazing. I have yet to read anything by this author that is less than stellar.This story goes back in forth between the past and present as the mystery of what happened to Meredith...

    I’m a big fan of Minka Kent and this book didn’t disappoint-a solid 3.5 stars for me. The Thinnest Air is a mystery/thriller that centers around sisters Meredith and Greer. Meredith seems to have to have all-a rich husband, beautiful house and two step-children-so what happened and why did she go missing!? The Thinnest Air is full of colorful characters and many twists/turns-recommend to readers that like mystery/thriller books.

    2.5 StarsWell this was my freebie for the month of June and I wasn't all that impressed. This was ok but just barely. At first I really couldn't stand either one of the sisters. I thought that they both came across as spoiled and self centered. I thought the dialogue was pretty terrible at the start too. Especially the dialogue between Greer and Andrew. It was so unnatural and awkward but also flat and boring. As the story progressed, those thing...

    I enjoyed this book (3 stars is NOT a negative review where I'm concerned). It was well written, quite dark in places, well-paced with a clever sliding timeline and kept me guessing concerning the antagonist's identity.I'd've rated it higher if it weren't for two things:1. The ending was a bit of a wet fart. Lots of excellently crafted build up is let down by a slightly anticlimactic climax.2. Some of the characters seem to have been hit one too ...

    Never boring, this quick read kept me turning pages, but oh, what a frustrating ending! This is one of those suspense novels where you suspect everybody – so of course I suspected the perpetrator/s all along! The main character, Meredith, - what a total ninny! But such a stunner that she slayed men wherever she walked. (Yeuch). The writing was good overall, but Kent uses that (annoying in my view) device of using brand names as shorthand descri...

    So let me start this out by saying that I was hesitant to read The Thinnest Air because I absolutely hated The Memory Watcher . I will never not give an author a second chance but TMW was paaaainful to read. Against my better judgement and my inner bookish girl who shook her head ferociously and begged me to walk away, I read it. I can see by the reviews that I my opinion may not be the most popular but I'm going to put it out there anyway becaus...

    The build up was pretty good and I really liked Greer, but then I thought the ending was rushed. And the big reveal as to who was the kidnapper? Well what I'd imagined was far more interesting than what was actually revealed...the who, the why, the how was kind of ordinary. I wanted this book to be more psychologically twisted than it actually was.SPOILERS BELOW **Also, I wanted to know: 1) What was the falling out between Meredith and Allison ab...

    I recently read The Memory Watcher by Minka Kent and was totally blown away by it. It contained all the elements I hope to find in a twisty psychological thriller, and I couldn’t wait to read Kent’s latest novel, The Thinnest Air, settling in for another breath-taking experience.Initially, Kent fully pandered to my wishes. I really enjoyed the dual POV: the elder sister, Greer, narrating the present, in which she is looking for her missing si...

    Although I found this book beautifully written, I didn’t feel thrilled by it, nor particularly curious to find out who kidnapped Meredith. Unfortunately, this was a heard-one-too-many-times-before story for me.

    I recently purchased and read “The Memory Watcher” by this author and it was just the type of psychological thriller I love. Addictive, twisty and with divisive well drawn characters.So I was interested to see if Minka Kent could do that again and the answer is, yes indeed she can. The Thinnest Air is a fast paced page turner told from the alternating points of view of two sisters – One missing, one searching. A clever and unpredictable mys...

    I am teetering between giving a 3 or 4 star review. Good writing, interesting plot, clever and unique with fairly fleshed out characters lead me to give a 4 but then the ending........rushed and too pat. 3.5stars and that is generous --of course, that is just my opinion.. The story was just too superficial and one of the story lines was completely unbelievable. However, I still would recommend.
