Hidden Bodies

Book: Hidden Bodies
Series: You #2
Author: Caroline Kepnes

Joe Goldberg is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past ten years, this thirty-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he’s heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him.

In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with the other young upstarts. He eats guac, works in a bookstore, and flirts with a journalist neighbor. But while others seem fixated on their own reflections, Joe can’t stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don’t always stay that way. They re-emerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: true love. And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he’s more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn’t want to hurt his new girlfriend—he wants to be with her forever. But if she ever finds out what he’s done, he may not have a choice...-Goodreads

Review: When things "don't work out" with Beck, Joe quickly falls in love with off-the-grid Amy, an employee at the book store. But when Amy steals from him and takes off for California, Joe is quick to follow so he can track her down and make her pay. Amy proves difficult to find and Joe's life takes some turns he didn't anticipate coming. 

This was deliciously dark and funny. Once again, an author that has me routing and chuckling along with a serial killer and his inner thoughts is quite talented. I love Joe (and his rationalizations) and can't wait to see what the next installment will be. 

Grade: 5/5
