WOW. Joe Goldberg is back and little has changed.

Hidden Bodies picks up right where You left us and Joe has set his sights on another victim love prospect. I am not usually a fan of sequels or books in a series, mainly because I lose interest or things change so much with characters that I’m not as connected.  Hidden Bodies is different. Joe is the same Joe I knew with the killer mind and his setting may have changed to the LA scene, but his motives did not change.Joe loves as hard as he has ever loved…

This is love. This is Sunday, and when we get back into the city, she strokes my neck. 

As much as Joe loves with his everything, he turns just as quick…

…but then she might see me coming and that would be like whispering to the deer, psst, I’m here, right before shooting it.

Hidden Bodies did not disappoint me. In fact, it kept me on the edge of my seat. I did not think it was possible for Joe to be more psychotic, more calculating and more murderous, but I’m so glad he was!!!

When things don’t work out for Joe, he comes up with ‘solutions’. These are usually not the way a rational person solves a problem. Joe has an all or nothing approach and won’t take no for an answer.

Joe seems to get deeper and deeper into situations where there seems to be no way out. Hidden Bodies leaves things open for a third book and I’m allllllllll for that! Hidden Bodies must be read after You though, because otherwise would not make as much sense and You is fantastic, so start there.

I really hope Caroline is considering Joe’s return in a third book.
