Book Description: Jake Buchannan knows the woman sitting next to him on this business flight to Denver – he just can’t figure out how he knows her. Clara Stowe isn’t in Jake’s line of work and didn’t go to college with him. They have nearly nothing in common apart from a deep and shared certainty that they’ve met before. Despite their best efforts over a probing conversation, both struggle to figure out what circumstances could possibly have brought them together. Then, in a revelation that sends Jake reeling, Clara admits she’s traveling to the Colorado mountains to kill herself, and disappears into the crowded airport immediately after landing. The Dead Girl in 2A is the story of what happens to Jake and Clara after they get off the plane, and the manipulative figure who has brought them together decades after they first met.

Rating: 4 Stars

Review: The Dead Girl in 2A to me was a genre bending book. As I was reading this book, while this a psychological thriller, it definitely had essences of Sci-Fi. To me this felt close to reading a Blake Crouch book (who I adore).

This book is all about connections and memories or lack of memories. Jake and Clara have a kismet moment on a plane to Colorado, but though both feel a connection, cannot remember ever meeting each other. What ensues is fast paced and many characters will be introduced.

I could not figure out where this book was going, but this was a great trip. Looking forward to see how this book does in the coming weeks. This one deserves a lot of praise.

Thank you to NetGalley and Poisoned Pen Press Books for an Advanced Readers Copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.

You really can say I am an obsessed reader as I read 200-300 books per year. I love Literary Fiction, Memoirs (I don't really care what kind), Mysteries and Thrillers. Once in awhile I will thrown in some YA and Romance. When I am not reading, I am a Sales Engineer for a software company, and I take care of my three cats with my husband. I love music, which my college degree is in. Looking forward to share my thoughts on all things reading.
