      3.5 starsA baby's body is found in the quiet upperclass town of Ridgedale, New Jersey. The normal crime beat reporter is out of town and Molly (who usually does the fluff pieces) is pulled in to do a report on the scene.Molly is a recent addition to the town so she doesn't know the history of the area. She starts digging in for answers and finds out that another death had happened at the same place.Molly had also recently lost a baby herself and her friends and husband question her as to whether [...]

      Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/poop.I hate attempting to write reviews about books I felt “meh” about. Although I read a little bit of everything, the mystery/thriller genre is definitely the one I gravitate toward most frequently. That being said, I’m extremely hard to please. A 3-Star rating is gooooooood for me. I also have high expectations from authors who I have previously read and enjoyed. Unfortunately for authors like McCreight (as well as others like Samantha Hayes and [...]

      The Hook - A starred review from Kirkus and good marks from my GR friends had me scrambling to read Where They Found Her The Line – ”Because, lately, his doing what she wanted seemed in inverse proportion to his affection for her.”The Sinker – It started out fine. A body of a baby is found in the river of a small University town. Molly, the reporter sent out to cover the story is on the edges of being back to life after her own tragic miscarriage making the assignment doubly challenging. [...]

      3.5 Loved the different formats, e-mails, journal entries, newspaper articles and comments, used in telling this story. A small town, a newborn baby found dead, and an investigation ensues. Secrets are revealed and some of them go back years, and some of the leaders of this town are exposed. Nothing is as it seems. A fast paced and intriguing story with some interesting characters, some that will do, anything to keep the truth from coming outC from Publisher.

      4.5 Stars. I was hooked right away! Wow is this the page turner! Loved it! I never finished Reconstructing Amelia because I couldn't get into it but decided to give this author another try. I am so glad I did! This was a much better read for me.The only problem I had was with the character, Barbara. I found her a little too tedious, annoying, and over the top even though she is supposed to be that way. Nonetheless, "Where They Found Her", was excellent! Psychological thriller fans put this on th [...]

      Beginning half of the book-2.5 starsLast half of the book-3.5 starsI had a hard time connecting with this book right from the start. So many characters to remember and multiple story lines made it hard for me to figure out what was what. On the plus side, the lead story was what kept me turning the pagesI did want to know whodunit and why. Finally a little over half way through the story lines started to come together and my questions were answered. The author really does know how to spin a twis [...]

      After being thoroughly impressed by author, McCreight's debut novel Reconstructing Amelia, to say the pressure was on for book number two was an understatement. Of course we had the almost obligatory comparisons to Gone Girl, but while this will most likely never get to the sales heights of that particular title, in every other way it is a superior piece of writing.Still reeling from a recent miscarriage, Molly Sanderson, who lives in upscale Ridgedale, with her professor husband and her young d [...]

      Twisty and enjoyable mystery, but fairly forgettable - lands somewhere around a 3.5. I'm not sure if these types of books are getting more generic or if I've just read so many that they no longer stand out

    9. Kelli on said:

      Here is another book that others seemed to really enjoy but that fell flat for me. As another reviewer said, perhaps I, too, have read too many of these non-linear mysteries with multiple POVs and jostled storylines. Here I found the characters (and there were so many!!) very one-dimensional and interconnected past the point of believability. How all these seemingly cursory characters proved important in the end was a little weak and the relationship that was the most important piece of the puzz [...]

      Seriously, Kimberly McCreight? Why do you do this to me? Every damn time. I always fall victim to your tantalizing, suspense- fueled, and addicting plots! (I also enjoy every minute of it and will continue to do so again and again). In “Where They Found Her”, a newborn baby’s dead body washes up on the shore of a town in New Jersey, sending all of the inhabitants into a state of blame-placing. The story is told through the eyes of three women- Molly (a news reporter who is still dealing wi [...]

    11. Jennifer on said:

      Where They Found Her is a standalone, mystery novel written by author Kimberly McCreight. This is only Ms. McCreight's second full-length novel and after an amazing debut (Reconstructing Amelia), I know so many readers were looking forward to it. Sadly, I must admit that I didn't enjoy Where They Found Her anywhere near as much as her debut. I felt confused too many times and I think that had to do with the multiple POV's and storylines going on. It prevented me from following the flow of the st [...]

      Let's just get this out of the way:I AM HARD TO PLEASE.I am deeply entrenched in the mystery/thriller/suspense genre. Deeply. Like, I'm not one of those well-rounded readers. So, 3 stars from me in this genre is not necessarily a bad thing. That being said, I also hate writing reviews for 3 star ratings because I feel so monotone in my emotional reaction towards what I've read. It's the the epitome of "meh."And I have so much "meh" to spread all over this book.A dead baby has been found in the w [...]

But she also wanted this to work – she had been ill with a severe case of depression for the past eighteen months after the loss of her baby.

      It seems every thriller these days gets held up to Gone Girl. There's no doubt Gillian Flynn is a very talented writer, but I dunno, something about her books always leaves me feeling a little dirty and grubby. I read Reconstructing Amelia a couple of years ago, and while it doesn't have the same level of fame and popularity as GONE GIRL I infinitely preferred it. Stylistically, WHERE THEY FOUND HER has similarities toAmelia.The book encompasses several viewpoint characters, and includes excerpt [...]

      Another thoroughly well written novel by author Kimberley McCreight. I had the novel 'Reconstructing Amelia' recommended to me and really enjoyed it so it was an easy choice to read this book and I was not disappointed. The book is not full of action but it has very well written dialogues that build up the various characters to have them clear in your mind. The story is well laid out and makes perfect sense by the end of the book and is extremely well paced.

Ridgedale Reader reporter Molly Sanderson is asked to write the news report on a dead body found near the Ridgedale University campus. A dead body is newsworthy anyway but this isn't just any dead body. This is a newborn baby girl. Molly takes on the case because she has to. There's no one else. Years before, Molly had lost a baby due to a miscarriage. At firs [...]

      ** This ARC was gifted to me by HarperCollins Canada as part of their newly re-launched program #HCCFirstLook in exchange for an honest review **—Wow. This was really REALLY good. I love a good psychological thriller, especially when they are as well thought out and well written as Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight.When I first read the synopsis for Where They Found Her, I was a little worried knowing that this novel was going to be told from three different points of view. I really d [...]

      3.5 StarsA dead infant is found on a college campus. A freelance journalist is chosen to be the reporter on this case, which is extra difficult for her, as she is still reeling from the loss of her own baby. Molly is determined to uncover the truth over this case, even if it means discovering deep, dark secrets of this sleepy college town. I really liked this author's first novel, Reconstructing Amelia, so I was looking forward to this one. It was slightly muddled in the middle, and I had a litt [...]

    24. Barbara on said:

      As the book cover informs, this psychological thriller is told from the viewpoint of three different women. Kimberly McCreight does an excellent job on voice; each character has a distinct personality and expression. The main character, Molly, is the weakest character in that she’s supposed to be a journalist, but doesn’t seem very curious or inquisitive. The most difficult character to read is Sandy, who is a teenager with foul language and harsh idiolect. I almost abandoned the book after [...]

      I've seen a lot of mixed reviews about this book, but decided to go ahead and read it anyways. Like Reconstructing Amelia, I figured that even if the book didn't end up being a favorite, it would at least keep me entertained for a few hours. And it did! But even more than that, I found myself truly impressed with Kimberly McCreight's pacing and structure in this novel. The way she tells this story (ie, through multiple perspectives, flashbacks, journal entries, etc), is very similar to her appro [...]

      when i first saw this on , my first thought was that it sounded like sharp objects. like, kind of exactly like it. dead body in the woods, reporter unexpectedly put on the case in a small town, brings back traumaever, this book goes to show how different two books can be with similar premises. where they found her achieves a lot in its relatively short form. almost an epistolary novel, it introduces us to five separate storylines that all tie in together at the end: the journalist; her psychiatr [...]

      I absolutely loved Reconstructing Amelia and was so excited to get a chance to read this one early. My expectations were really high, as well, and I completely adored this book, as well.It's not another Reconstructing Amelia, except it's just as compelling. (This one centers around a newborn girl who was found dead in a relatively remote area. Nobody knows who her mom is, or how she got there, and obviously it has the small town in an uproar.)I love that Kimberly McCreight chose to have Barbara [...]

      3.5 Stars. McCreight's newest novel is centered around a small university town where the body of a newborn infant has been found in the river. Molly, local small-town community reporter, finds herself in the unenviable position of reporting on the crime when the town's regular investigative reporter is conveniently out sick that day. Even worse, the death hits hard for Molly since she is only just recovering from a late-term miscarriage herself.It probably goes without saying that Molly uncovers [...]

      I found this hard to follow at times, but in saying that it is a great read. We are introduced to many characters and multiple story lines so you need to concentrate to keep up with them all. The story is part mystery, part thriller. An infant baby is discovered dead near the local university. No one knows who the baby is or how it came to be there. This begins the story and as we move further all these characters and sub plots come together to make for quite a dark tale, but a very intriguing o [...]
