    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 ...

    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 (sorry it didn't happen for me).  I thought there were so many possibilities for a completely mind-bending turn...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Really good. Twisty and turn-y. Minka Kent always has a way with making the everyday psycho 10 times more crazy! 😂

    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 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...

    The first half of book was bad.The second half was even worse.Listened with TTSNot Clean. Crude and Foul Language.

    I really like Meredith’s sister, Greer. She was the star of the book! This is a very enjoyable read but ending was nothing too exciting so I downgraded this to a 3 star.

    This was a fun thriller that kept me turning pages, but not a stand out. I was a bit meh about how things wrapped up, and I didn't find the end very climactic. It's a good read for something exciting to spend a few hours on, but probably won't be very memorable for me.Some spoiler-y thoughts about the ending:(view spoiler)[Also, I couldn't believe Meredith ended up staying with her asshole husband! He may not have turned out to be the kidnapper, ...

    A few years ago, Meredith married a wealthy, older man. Now, just as she's about to come into money of her own, she's missing. Her sister Greer is trying to find her, perhaps even harder than the police.I don't know if this is some sort of trend, but I've noticed so many characters in thrillers are downright unlikeable. I'm all for throwing in some suspicious people to keep me guessing, but that doesn't mean every last person should lack redeemab...

    This was an easy Kindle First pick for me, as I read "The Perfect Roommate" by this author earlier this year and enjoyed it. I'm in the midst of reading "The Terror" by Dan Simmons and needed a break to read something lighter (though I'm not sure what it says about me that I consider a book about a missing woman who has possibly been murdered the lighter choice).It's a fast paced book that's not overly long, I read this in an afternoon. Each chap...

    I could not put this book down. Minks Kent can write. So I give this four stars for sheer escapism, but there was just something missing with the characters. Meredith was clueless, Greer was just too hard, what was up with the male characters...but I will definitely read more of her work. She writes in a way that just keeps you turning the pages and THAT is a real gift.

    Good book: quick read. Not a super sophisticated writing style, but a fun plot line to follow. Characters were not complex, but sympathic enough. It was a good light read, but not one I'd go out of my way to recommend or reread.

    .I was kind of disappointed when we found out who the true “bad guy” was. I had hoped for something a little less cliche.That being said I actually quite enjoyed this book. I liked the back and forth in time frame, and characters POV. That’s one of my favorite ways to read these thriller/suspense type books.Like always, about the last 20% is my favorite as that’s when the action really picks up. I wouldn’t hate having a novella to follo...

    This was a Kindle First choice for June.I didn't dislike this book, but it didn't blow me away, either. The characters weren't particularly likable, and the story was rather predictable, but it had its moments. The writing is quite good in some places, and all-in-all, reading this book was an okay way to spend an evening. Way better than watching TV!

    This book is fantastic and I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. I binge read it in an afternoon and even though I needed to know what had happened to Meredith I didn't want it to end.The storyline flows really well and hooks you in from the beginning of the book and doesn't let you go till you read the end.This book gave me a plethora of emotions that will stay with me for some time.I'm so glad I found the very talented author Minka ...
