Book review: Such a Quiet Place by Megan Miranda


Hollow’s Edge is a perfect neighborhood on a lake with a beautiful community pool where most of the residents are employed by the local college. After the deaths of Fiona and Brandon Truett, the police quickly name a suspect, Ruby Fletcher, who is then found guilty of the double murder. A year and a half later, Ruby’s lawyer overturns this conviction and Ruby returns to Hollow’s Edge.

Harper Nash is Ruby’s former roommate, and Harper is terrified when Ruby returns acting as things are as normal as before the deaths.

It is very apparent that the police rushed for a conviction once Ruby returns home and Harper begins to rethink the evidence and info that went into the conviction. Not everyone in this idealistic

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed the premise of a bit like Desperate Housewives or another setting of an upper-middle close knit community that are entwined in each other’s lives the majority of the time.

Megan Miranda tends to tell the story in a slow pace which may bore some readers if you aren’t expecting this. I’ve read a few of her books, so I did know what to expect. I enjoyed the neighborhood drama of the book, and the ending twist did surprise me. The ending was a bit anticlimactic though.

If you are a Megan Miranda fan, give this one a try! I think you will enjoy it. I gave this 3/5 stars.
