See My Review Below!!!







Two sisters raised in fear are about to find out why in a chilling novel of psychological suspense from the author of The Thinnest Air.

Ignorant of civilization and cautioned against its evils, nineteen-year-old Wren and her two sisters, Sage and Evie, were raised in off-the-grid isolation in a primitive cabin in upstate New York. When the youngest grows gravely ill, their mother leaves with the child to get help from a nearby town. And they never return.

As months pass, hope vanishes. Supplies are low. Livestock are dying. A brutal winter is bearing down. Then comes the stranger. He claims to be looking for the girls’ mother, and he’s not leaving without them.

To escape, Wren and her sister must break the rule they’ve grown up with: never go beyond the forest.

Past the thicket of dread, they come upon a house on the other side of the pines. This is where Wren and Sage must confront something more chilling than the unknowable. They’ll discover what’s been hidden from them, what they’re running from, and the secrets that have left them in the dark their entire lives.


Minka Kent has been crafting stories since before she could scribble her name. With a love of the literary dark and twisted, Minka cut her teeth on Goosebumps and Fear Street, graduated to Stephen King as a teenager, and now counts Gillian Flynn, Chevy Stevens, and Caroline Kepnes amongst her favorite authors and biggest influences. Minka has always been curious about good people who do bad things and loves to explore what happens when larger-than-life characters are placed in fascinating situations.

In her non-writing life, Minka is a thirty-something wife and mother who equally enjoys sunny and rainy days, loves freshly cut hydrangeas, hides behind oversized sunglasses, travels to warmer climates every chance she gets, and bakes sweet treats when the mood strikes (spoiler alert: it’s often).

My Review…

This is a new to me author and this thriller is amazing!

The Stillwater Girls is a story full of intrigue, it kept me guessing until the end and what an ending it was! I actually gasped when all the truth was revealed.

This story also has hope and bravery, the girls are forced into a world they don’t know and they handle it as brave as can be expected.

The premise of this story is scary and believable! I think that is what scared me the most.  The vivid pictures that Ms. Kent writes with her words will put you right into the scene.  Her descriptions were amazing. I caught myself reading a paragraph and then stopping to let it soak in.

I loved the alternating POV’s in this story, each person’s story (I don’t want to spoil it) flows beautifully into the next.

Read this book like a fine glass of wine, slowly sip and savor the words, you don’t want to miss any clues and insights into what is going to happen next.

I really enjoyed this story! I hope to add Ms. Kent’s other novels to my TBR list.
