I loved seeing how the pieces fit together--although everything wraps up a little too neatly, the ending was quite gratifying. BLOOD SISTERS will be published in September, but thanks to Vanessa and her publisher, we’re able to get an exclusive early glimpse into the book right here in today’s blog post! His incessant questioning paired with her severe insomnia has brought up uncomfortable memories from her own childhood, making Isabelle start to doubt her recollection of the night of Mason’s disappearance, as well as second-guess who she can trust. All the Dangerous Things explores the often devastating secrets within families, the hard days of early motherhood and the lies we not only tell each other, but ourselves.

And the payoff here is very much worth it; not only did I not see this story’s ending coming, but I found myself in tears by the book’s end, too. All the Dangerous Things is a psychological thriller about a missing child and his sleep-deprived mother obsessed with finding out the truth behind his disappearance.I wasn't the biggest fan of Stacy Willingham’s previous novel, A Flicker in the Dark , but I thoroughly enjoyed All the Dangerous Things. It's alluded to that something tragic happened in the past so we have that mystery along with the current missing child mystery and neither really captured my attention. Following up her instant New York Times bestseller, A Flicker in the Dark , Stacy Willingham delivers a totally gripping thriller about a desperate mother with a troubled past in All the Dangerous Things . And, now Isabelle Drake is the keynote speaker at TrueCrimeCon-the largest true crime conference in the world-drawing a global attendance of over 10,000-trying to keep her son’s case alive, as it grows COLD-still with no leads. All in all, except for the ending, this was too slow and too melodramatic and too whiny and too clichéd for me.

When she meets Waylon , who has a true crime pod show , with a huge following, she agrees to talk about the night her son Mason went missing. Could a terrible secret from Isabelle’s past—something she has repressed for years—have manifested itself in her adult life, and caused her to harm her son? From the list of people attending her speeches she tortures herself going through them, seeing if any of them are known criminals, desperately trying to find a link.While Isabelle tries to zero in on possible suspects, often acting impulsively in confronting those whom she suspects, it becomes clear that she is also a suspect in her son’s disappearance in the eyes of the police and others around her. It is our unreliable narrator who manages to resolve the case almost entirely on her own, a whole year after the incident. I read this coming off of a rewatch of Sharp Objects (based on the Flynn novel) and the southern, spooky small town vibe co-mingled perfectly with the scene set by Willingham in this book. Willingham speaks the same literary language as the likes of Sandra Brown, Lisa Gardner and Lisa Scottoline and is heading down a path toward the same greatness they achieved.

She lives in Charleston, South Carolina, with her husband, Britt, and Labradoodle, Mako, where she is always working on her next book.

Once her baby is born she's so exhausted but eventually she wants more, only to lose everything she had left. She gives speeches about her missing child, knowing that people are interested, hoping to find answers. I thought there was WAY too much dwelling on her lack of sleep, sleepwalking, keeping herself awake, being tired, micro sleeps, etc. I'm glad because "missing without a trace" is my favorite trope if done right, and this one had a good exposition and explanation. But as she learns more about case by watching the security videos they recorded before the incident, she realizes there’s something more sinister about her life and only one to find out what happened to her son is Isabella by opening the Pandora’s box and bringing out the secrets she’s buried!
