Just when you think you know what you know that you know…. you discover… you know nothing at all…. ~Sheila
When Ted Severson meets the lovely Lily Kinter at an airport bar after the flight they are both on has been delayed, Ted shares that his wife Miranda is having an affair with the contractor building their new home. A nonchalant conversation follows, and Ted having had more than a few drinks tells Lily almost jokingly, that he would like to kill his wife. Lily, says if he is serious, she would help him.
The two part ways but make a plan to meet up in the future at a set location if Ted is serious about killing his wife. No judgement if either changes their mind and does not show.
They both show up.
I like a good mystery…. especially this time of year when the weather is cooler and a comfy chair, blanket, and a hot beverage call my name. Curling up with a good book is a pleasure to all readers… finding the right book, that can be another story…
The Kind Worth Killing was the right story. I loved the format of alternating chapters between Lily and Tom. The story unfold both backwards and forwards as you learn of what is true of the past as well as the present. I want to tell you so much more but I am afraid to let any of this amazing book leak into my review.
Simply said – if you love a book with multiple twists and turns … one that makes you think you got it… then shocks you when you don’t… one that surprises you long before the book is over…
I suggest giving this book a try. I am looking to read more from this author.

I have heard good things about Peter Swanson’s books. Can’t wait to try one. Thanks for sharing.
Good to see you back, have missed you and your reviews. I have read Her Every Fear and it was very good. After reading your review I am anxious to get this book. You are right, nothing like a good book and snuggling in with a blanket and a hot beverage.
I loved this book and Her Every Fear too!
Okay okay I’m adding it to my wish list!
Wow this one looks good. I am adding it to my Christmas wish list!
It definitely looks like a good mystery. A great genre, when done well.
All The Beautiful Lies was the first Peter Swanson book that I read…I loved it!
Sounds like my kind of book!
This sounds great. Is there an order to read the books or are all stand alones? I admit it. I need to go in order. lol
