The Girl Before by Rena Olsen

I think this is a good example of what it is. Nothing flashy. Nothing exciting. A writing style that creates some distance and little anxiety.

Not going to talk about the plot much bc there are things to give away. Clara’s house is stormed by men with guns who take her to a room for questioning. Clara has to decide whether she should answer these questions and what it will mean for her. I was drawn into the story – wondering what she should do and what it would mean for her.

The book picked up around the middle. Honestly, not a ton for me to say here. I love thrillers. This was a non-flashy-but-still-enjoyable toned-down version of a “thriller.”
