This is not how she wanted to be famous, yet, everyone knows the story of “the girl from Widow Hills.”

Arden Maynor was just a child when she was swept away while sleepwalking during a horrific rainstorm and went missing for days. Strangers and friends, neighbors and rescue workers, set up search parties and held vigils, praying for her safe return. Amazingly, she was found, alive, clinging to a storm drain. Instantly, the girl from Widow Hills became a living miracle. Arden’s mother wrote a book. Fame followed as did the fans and fan letters, creeps, and stalkers. And every year, on the anniversary of her rescue, it all started over again and became too much. As soon as she was old enough, Arden changed her name and disappeared from the public eye.

Arden, now Olivia is a young woman living hundreds of miles away, from the infamous storm drain. She’s managed to stay off the radar for the last few years. But with the twentieth anniversary of her rescue approaching, the media will inevitably renew its interest in Arden. But, where is she now? Olivia feels like she’s being watched and begins sleepwalking again, like she did long ago, even sleepwalking outside her home. Late one night she jolts awake outside in her yard. Looking down she is horrified to see at her feet the corpse of a man she knows from her previous life, as Arden Maynor.

Thus incident pushes the girl from Widow Hills back into the limelight. I didn’t predict the twists and turns this book proposed. Excellent story and high quality writing. I shall read more books by Megan Miranda. ( )

Pandemic Read. Lost my thread of belief in a few places but pretty good. Glad to know there was a reason for the doubt I had.

When Arden was six she went missing for three days, washed away in floodwaters down pipes due to sleepwalking. Twenty years later Arden again sleepwalks but this time wakes up next to a dead body.

This is the second book I have read by this author and again have enjoyed it. The plot was interesting and there was plenty of suspense to keep my interest.

The story follows the main character Arden, now calling herself Olivia as she is trying to get on with her life, but her past needs to be remembered. The plot does plod along nicely with a twist that I didn't see coming.

There were a couple of things towards the end that I did find a little unbelievable especially when it was clear what had been going on but it didn't spoil the whole enjoyment of the read.

I really enjoyed this book and I would read more by Megan Miranda in the future. ( )

The Girl from Widow Hills by Megan Miranda is a thriller that will stay with you, long after the end of the book. It is a story that will have you guessing and confused from the first page. Arden Maynor, a six-year-old, disappears from her home on a stormy night. It is believed that, while sleepwalking outdoors, she was swept away by a violent rainstorm. All of Widow Hills begin the search for the child, fearing the worst. After three harrowing days, Arden is found in a storm drain and saved. The child’s life is never the same as word of her ordeal spreads. When she is older, she changes her name to Olivia and fades from the limelight to live her life in anonymity for a change. She finished college, moved to another state and got a job at a local hospital. All is well for a while till she finds out that her estranged mother has passed away and the sleepwalking returns. One night, she stumbles onto a dead body in her yard and the police begin an investigation that threatens to bring back the troubles of her past life. Olivia is no longer able to tell the friends from the foes and the police may be digging up what should be left untouched. This is a rollercoaster ride and the end of the book will shock. Highly recommended. Thank you to Simon & Schuster Canada and NetGalley for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Stayed up way too late just to finish this book. I thought I had it figured out at least 3 times, but no where near the truth. A quick read, lots of twists and turns. Perfect for beach (unless you’re watching the kids)...or a quiet weekend at home (order take-out and silence the phone). Once I committed to the book, I flew thru it. This was a new author for me and I enjoyed the writing, characters and the dual timeline, ever so slight with just enough to keep you thinking. I look forward to reading more of this author’s works.

Thanks to Ms. Miranda, Simon & Schuster and NetGalley for this ARC. Opinion is mine alone. ( )

4/5 stars
I really liked this book! The premise for this novel is what drew me in and I feel that the story was executed so well!
I was interested in every character that was introduced and each character felt fleshed out and well thought out.
Although at times the story felt a bit predictable, I didn't mind that at all as the writing was so great! The pacing was excellent and I loved how atmospheric this novel felt and enjoyed the creepy undertones throughout.
The ending wasn't my favorite but I like that it wrapped up nicely.
Overall, I really loved this book and would highly recommend it. Especially if like me you're new to thrillers and want something a bit creepy but not absolutely terrifying!
