This book very quickly sucked me in. The ending wasn't as strong as the rest of the book, but overall it was a suspenseful read with interesting characters.

What Lies in the Woods by Kate Alice Marshall is the author's first adult thriller, which explains why a fair amount of the action occurs when the three main characters are tweens/teens.
Naomi, Cassidy, and Olivia are lifelong friends who were victims of a crime at age 11. Law enforcement intervened, testimony was given, someone was incarcerated, and a series of murders was solved. Or was it?

I appreciated the pacing of this plot - I was engaged from the first chapter to the last. Some twists surprised me, and the red herrings kept me guessing. This was the third consecutive book I read in early 2023 featuring a character who was a podcaster so that 'trope' felt tired, but that's due more to my reading sequence.

Thank you to Macmillan Audio and NetGalley for access to the audiobook that was narrated by Karissa Vacker.
