Happy Tuesday! Today I have a review of The Three Beths, a new literary thriller by Jeff Abbott! Thanks to Grand Central Pub for the invitation to review this captivating read and for sponsoring a giveaway! Make sure to read all the way to the bottom for two chances to win a copy (US and Canada)!
Why hasn’t Jeff Abbott been on my reading radar before? I am his newest fan.
I don’t know how you could read the synopsis and not be intrigued. The premise is completely original, and the way this is written is exceptionally engaging.
Mariah Dunning’s mother disappeared without a trace, which is completely out of character for her. Mariah’s father shoulders the blame, though he proclaims his innocence. Their lives are abruptly altered because the community is distrustful and wants nothing to do with Mariah and her father.
There is an opening scene where Mariah spots someone looking like her mother in the mall. What a thrill ride, which lands Mariah at the police station.
Mariah is friends with a crime blogger, and he has pieced together that two other women in the area are missing- both named Beth; making that three women named Beth who are missing. Mariah feels strongly that it is not a coincidence and sets her sights on pinpointing the connection between the women.
The Three Beths is a compelling, twisty, turny adventurous thriller. The pacing is on point, and the writing is so easy to read that once the plots gets moving, it is incredibly difficult to put the book down! The police are focused on Mariah’s dad, and Mariah is focusing hard on the possible connection between the women. Where does the truth lie?
Thank you to Grand Central Publishing for the invitation to read this book. All opinions are my own.
My mom would never leave me.
This has been Mariah Dunning’s motto. Her compass. Her belief. So when she glimpses her mother–who’s been missing and presumed dead for the past two years–on the other side of a crowded food court, Mariah’s conviction becomes stronger than ever. Or is she losing her mind?
Her mother disappeared without a trace and–even without a body or any physical evidence–suspicion for her murder immediately fell upon Mariah’s father, leaving both father and daughter ostracized from their close-knit community.
Until one day, Mariah stumbles upon the fact that two other women have also disappeared recently from Lakehaven. And all three women had the same name: Beth.
Is it merely an unlikely coincidence? Or is there a deeper, sinister connection between the three Beths?
Mariah would give anything to find out what happened to her mother. But the truth may be worse than she could have imagined…
