March Read- The Girl On the Train

My friend talked to me about this book, title not said, she wanted to read a couple weeks back and it sounded great. Then the other day I was at Target and picked up The Girl On the Train and came to work and talked all about how I want to read this book. Turns out it was the same book she was excited about. Since my Target run, I have seen this book posted all over Instagram. For that reason, this is now my March must read! 

Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes, and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple breakfasting on their deck. She’s even started to feel like she knows them. “Jess and Jason,” she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.

And then she sees something shocking. It’s only a minute until the train moves on, but it’s enough. Now everything’s changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel offers what she knows to the police, and becomes inextricably entwined in what happens next, as well as in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?

Compulsively readable, The Girl on the Train is an emotionally immersive, Hitchcockian thriller and an electrifying debut.

Have any of y'all read this book? What did you think?
