Where in the World is MICAH????!
The author spent some time planning this story---sort of. I liked the mystery, the way Veronica’s life began to change when unexpected events took place, how she dealt with the blows.
The best part of the book for me was the adorable Bella, because of what she had to say and the way she interacted with her mommy. I loved the description of how she blew up her cheeks when angry, stuck out her lower lip and crossed her littl ...more
I couldn't put the book down for the first half but then it just dragged and I stopped caring. I flipped to the end and half read. I feel awful saying that because the first half was so good. Just by the 50% mark I was like OMG enough already what happened???
Trespassing is an eerie, surprising, slow burn that kept me reading even while my eyes were begging to close.
Early on, I worried this would be a storyline of which I've grown weary, with a naive woman duped by her lying and controlling husband. But this story takes us to totally unexpected places, and it's not at all a rehashed version of the stereotypical duped housewife.
The writing is exceptional. I felt the emotional pull; the confusion, the anxiety, the fear. Because Veronica is narrating, h ...more

I finish what I start
Spoiler alert: I gutted through it to see if at the very least the pieces would be artfully gutted together. The dialogue is cringeworthy. The overdone urban mom struggle is annoying. The weak attempt to make the protagonist doubt her own sanity made a mockery of mental illness and further casts an unrealistic and negative shadow over mental illness. The stereotyped “organic” neighbor is infuriating. The IVF struggles play too big of a role. This story is completely bogged d ...more
Wow, this book was a surprise to me. I got it from the Kindle First program so it wasn't one I had heard about prior to choosing it. I am so glad I picked it! It was impossible to put down and I read it in 2 days!

What a suspenseful, psychological thriller!
Trespassing by Brandi Reeds was definitely not what I expected going into it! I honestly couldn't turn the pages fast enough as my mind raced with what-ifs only to be proven wrong, time & time again.
"I wish they understood that no one in her right mind would choose to go through what I’m going through."
In Trespassing we meet Veronica, a mom to 3 year old Bella who is struggling to get pregnant again via IVF. When we first meet Veronica & ...more
