Review The Thinnest Air by Minka Kent

A woman’s disappearance exposes a life of secrets in a twisting novel of psychological suspense from the author of The Memory Watcher.

Meredith Price is the luckiest woman alive. Her husband, Andrew, is a charming and successful financial broker. She has two lovely stepchildren and is living in affluence in a mountain resort town. After three years of marriage, Meredith’s life has become predictable. Until the day she disappears.

Her car has been discovered in a grocery store parking lot—purse and phone undisturbed on the passenger seat, keys in the ignition, no sign of struggle, and no evidence of foul play. It’s as if she vanished into thin air.

It’s not like Meredith to simply abandon her loved ones. And no one in this town would have reason to harm her. When her desperate sister, Greer, arrives, she must face a disturbing question: What if no one really knows Meredith at all? For Greer, finding her sister isn’t going to be easy…because where she’s looking is going to get very, very dark.

This book is fantastic and one of my favourite Kindle Firsts in a long time. I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it. Minka Kent is a talented suspense writer that masterfully weaves a plot full of twists and turns, I binge read it in a morning as I just needed to know what had happened to Meredith…

The story is about a young, beautiful woman, Meredith who was raised by her older sister Greer and a bond developed between them that was unbreakable. The two shared everything until Meredith married Andrew, a wealthy, older man, who literally swept her to a glamorous life. Unfortunately, that life was very lonely and led Meredith on a path of lying, secrecy and distrust… until she vanished into thin air…

This story moves between the past and present as the mystery of what happened to Meredith builds into a very suspenseful and complicated tale. Nothing and no one is what they seem….

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to escape for a couple hours, a thrilling, intense read which highlights the love of sisters… it kept me swiping and second-guessing every character in ‘The Thinnest Air’.

Started reading this right away based on that one star ‘first line’ review. I thought, surely it can’t be THAT bad. And it wasn’t. It was a good first line, and anyone who claims they’re not a prude but can’t handle writing about sex that occurs while on honeymoon is lying to both themselves and us. I’ll update with an actual review one of these days, but I thought that review needed a counterbalance.

My First Read pick for June, and this one I did not agonize over- it just seemed right. I love psychological suspense thrillers, and this one is all that. Meredith and Greer, half sisters with an unbreakable bond, one goes missing, the other jumps into action to find out what happened to her.

There are a lot of twists and turns, going back and forth between the main characters for several months before Meredith goes missing. It is an interesting story with a surprising ending. Enjoyable book, well worth the read.
