4 Thrillers By Female Authors You Won’t Be Able to Put Down

I love a good thriller. Isn’t it fun to read a book that you just. can’t. put. down? Here are four of my favorite heart racing books by female authors that will keep you reading for hours…

he Trespasser, Tana French

Yep- Tana French again. I can’t stop reading everything she writes and man, this one was good.

Being on the Murder squad is nothing like Detective Antoinette Conway dreamed it would be. Antoinette is savagely tough, but she’s getting close to the breaking point. Her new case looks like yet another by-the-numbers lovers’ quarrel gone bad. There’s nothing unusual about the victim—except that Antoinette’s seen her somewhere before.

All the Missing Girls, Megan Miranda

A case of your past catching up with you in a very bad way. This book unravels in such a way that you don’t want to stop turning pages.

It’s been ten years since Nicolette Farrell left her rural hometown after her best friend, Corinne, disappeared from Cooley Ridge without a trace. Back again to tie up loose ends and care for her ailing father, Nic is soon plunged into a shocking drama that reawakens Corinne’s case and breaks open old wounds long since stitched.

The Woman in Cabin 10, Ruth Ware

The whole premise for this story is freaking. I mean, you’re stuck out at sea and you just know that someone on the boat is a killer but no one will believe you and you can’t quite put the pieces together in your head. This put me on edge.

In this tightly wound story, Lo Blacklock, a journalist, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime: a week on a luxury cruise with only a handful of cabins. As the week on the ship wears on,  Lo witnesses what she can only describe as a nightmare: a woman being thrown overboard. The problem? All passengers remain accounted for—and so, the ship sails on as if nothing has happened, despite Lo’s desperate attempts to convey that something (or someone) has gone terribly, terribly wrong.

The Chemist, Stephanie Meyer

I was really curious to see what Stephanie Meyer could do beyond Twilight. The reviews were good so I went for it and it didn’t disappoint.

She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning.

Are you a fan of thrillers or do you prefer a different type of page turner?

    All of these sound great. I read a book by Megan Miranda several years ago and really enjoyed it. I’ve been super curious about Stephenie Meyer’s new book. I’m happy to hear you liked it!

    All these thrillers sound interesting. I find I love the idea of thrillers, but never actually get around to reading too many of them.
