    Minka Kent is a beloved author of my friend, Kendall’s, and The Thinnest Air is my first book by Kent.

    Meredith Price considers herself lucky. She has been living a life of luxury married to her husband and living in a resort town. The catch: she’s gotten bored with it all, and then she vanishes into thin air.

    When her car is found at a local grocery store, there is no sign of foul play. So did she choose to disappear, or was she abducted? Meredith’s sister, Greer, takes up the search, which lands her in some dark, seedy places.

    The Thinnest Air is a great title with multiple meanings. This is a super quick and well-written read at less than 300 pages, and while it was a bit pat and predictable in places, there was a giant twist that shocked me! After that twist, however, the ending was more clipped than I would have liked. I just wanted more! Minka Kent clearly has immense talent for this genre, and I will most definitely be checking out her other books.

    Thank you to Amazon Pub/Thomas & Mercer for the copy. The Thinnest Air will be published on July 1, 2018!

    This was a fast paced page turning psychological thriller that started with a bang and ended with a fizzle... I started this book with lowered expectations... five of my trusted book Besties read this before me, and I knew they were all disappointed.... and I want to thank all of them for lowering my expectations, because I think I enjoyed this book so much more because of that.... Truly for me up until about 82% this book was brilliant.... I thought my girls were being super unfair to this book as I quickly turned those pages to find out what the heck was going on! And then...... The reveal..... it was such a letdown and it happened really early... I spent the last 10% of this book waiting for the other shoe to drop and it is still dangling on my foot!

    Meredith has gone missing... disappearing into thin air, leaving behind her purse and her phone.... did she run away or was she snatched? Why would she leave her seemingly happy marriage? And who would take her?

    Loved how this story was revealed to us... we got Meredith’s perspective leading up to the kidnapping and Grier’s ( Meredith’s big sister) perspective after the kidnapping... Grier was a devoted big sister and was not going to stop until Meredith was found! Grier was my favorite character in this book strong, sassy, and determined.... we all need a sibling like her in our lives! Made me wonder what my brothers would do if I were to go missing? They would probably throw a party, LOL I always told my mom I wanted a sister... I’m sure she would be out looking for me unlike those brothers of mine! Let’s hope I never go missing! OK back to the book....

    This was a well told story with plenty of suspects and secrets... and as things were slowly revealed Grier found out she did not know her little sister as well as she thought... also as things were revealed I became more and more suspicious of certain characters.... where this book fell short for me is in the ending it was just so vanilla... and I prefer Rocky Road!

    I do recommend this book because it was really good up until the ending and, I think if you read it with the expectations of a lackluster ending you’ll enjoy it...Minka Kent has a very readable and smooth style about her writing making this a very quick read...

    *** many thanks to Thomas & Mercer for my copy of this book ***

    Meredith Price’s car is found in the parking lot of a grocery store. Driver’s side door wide open, keys and phone found inside. Meredith, as you may already have guessed, is nowhere to be found. Has she run away or has she been kidnapped? She has the perfect life - married to Andrew Price, a kind, wonderful, successful man who loves and provides for her in a way that no man ever has. Her life is one of luxury and opulence, which she achieved only by marriage. Her older sister Greer is convinced that there is no way Meredith would have run from it.

    Greer and Meredith are exact opposites. Struggle has always been Greer’s middle name - she has had to fight for every single thing she has ever had - including her chain of coffee shops in NYC. Working with her best friend and former boyfriend every day isn’t easy, but Greer and Harris wouldn’t have it any other way.

    When Meredith goes missing, Greer drops everything to go and find her. Meredith seems to have disappeared into thin air and even the police have no answers. Say what?! And yet, Greer does not give up. We are talking about her sister!!

    Everything goes awry from that point forward. You begin to question what is real and what is not. I was glued to the pages… anxiously turning them as quickly as possible. This was my first Minka Kent novel and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it, especially given the mixed reviews. My suggestion - don’t read them, just experience this suspenseful book for yourself!

    This was a buddy read with Kaceey. So glad we read this when we did, it was exactly what we needed!.

    Thank you to NetGalley, Thomas and Mercer and Minka Kent for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review.

    Let me start off by saying, what a pleasant surprise this book was. I’d been putting off reading this one after seeing so many mixed reviews. I desperately wanted a genuinely, thrilling read. (And who doesn’t?) So…from the start to the very last words, this one fully delivered. Thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it!

    The author has the ability to quickly draw you in and keep you focused, engaged and guessing throughout.

    Meredith meets the man of her dreams. Okay, he is a little older, but love conquers all, right?! Wined, dined and pampered, and in an extremely rapid fashion, she is now sporting the new initials

    and living among the 1% in an exclusive ski village in Utah with her new husband Andrew.

    Here comes the bump in the road... One day Meredith vanishes...seemingly into thin air!

    Told from both the perspectives of Meredith and her older sister Greer, from timelines of before and after

    Again, what a pleasant surprise that I most definitely recommend!

    A fast and fun buddy read with Susanne!🌸

    4.0 Stars— I decided to read another Kindle First selection, “The Thinnest Air” by Minka Kent after reading a review of the book on-line. This is the first book I have ever read by Kent, and I have to say that I was very impressed.

    4.0 Stars— I decided to read another Kindle First selection, “The Thinnest Air” by Minka Kent after reading a review of the book on-line. This is the first book I have ever read by Kent, and I have to say that I was very impressed. The book is told from two different perspectives: Meredith and her life story prior to her disappearance, and her sister, Greer, who tells the reader what happened from the date of her sister’s disappearance forward. The chapters alternate between the two narratives, and the author does an excellent job on building suspense and keeping a mystery as to who the villain behind Meredith’s disappearance was. The writing is very good and the author does a great job of giving you enough information about other characters to make you suspect them of the crime all the way until the big reveal near the end of the book. The book adds some humor as well as Meredith’s mother is a very well drawn character whose realistic quest to be the center of attention is brought up throughout the book. The only issues I had with the book were some of the actions of characters (especially in how they handled receiving information relating to the crime and the main character annoyingly turning to someone who is rude and mean for love advice even though she thought he hated her) that defy common sense and are distracting in what is otherwise a great novel. I definitely would recommend this book and author and look forward to reading some of her other books in the future.

    So, let me start off by saying how much of a huge fan I am of Minka Kent. I remember running across her debut novel The Memory Watcher on my kindle and I fell in love with her writing style!

    So, naturally I was extremely excited to get my hands on Minka's third book! But, I am going to be honest in that this was my least favorite novel that she has published.

    What I love about Kent? She flawlessly always grabs her readers in from page one and of course this was demonstrated beautifully in The Thinnest Air. This is a fast paced thriller that keeps you turning those pages!!

    Meredith and Andrew are newlyweds that are very much in love... or we think that they are from the start. Meredith goes off to the grocery store one day and she disappears into thin air literally.... leaving her car abandoned with the door open with all of her stuff in her car. Weird right?!

    No one has any idea where Meredith has gone and her sister Greer is devastated by her sister's disappearance. Greer will stop at nothing to find out what happened to her sister. I have to say that I liked Greer's character! She was pretty sassy!

    I was not bored in the novel at all and of course Minka never disappoints and keeps you on the edge of your seat trying to figure out who, what, when, why!

    Why I rated it 3 stars? The ending felt extremely rushed to me and didn't deliver at all. I was honestly super bummed and am used to Minka throwing in her last minute twists/turns that make her novels epic. When I found out the plot/story behind Meredith's disappearance it just was a disappointment. I was thinking really? Hmmm.

    Overall, I am a huge fan of this author and will always read her books!!

    Thank you to Netgalley and Thomas & Mercer for the opportunity to read this arc in exchange for my honest review.

    This is my third book by this author. She has a way of building suspense that is completely addictive. I was thrilled when I saw she had a new book coming out.

    This one involves a missing wife and the search to find her. This produced a lot of page turning on my part and my mind imagining some crazy elaborate, tangled twist (it just didn't happen for me).  I thought there were so many possibilities for a completely mind-bending turn.

Turns out to be a highly predictable story with too many cliches and loose ends(IMO).  Wait! What about .....?  What happened with.....?  Why did.....?

    I like my psychological thrillers to be original with a messy tangled web that I can unravel and be left wondering....

    If you want to read a fast-paced story and don't mind a predictable ending, this one may please you. (It even has some eye-candy)!  I liked this one, but not a favorite. Enjoyed reading this one with some Goodreads friends! I'll still be interested in what the author comes up with next!

    Thanks to NG for my ARC.

    I was super excited to get my hands on my first Minka Kent book after rave reviews from my gal Kendall - I really can’t wait to read her other titles I’ve heard such great things about!

    Kent has written a suspenseful, very fast paced novel - she has a knack for amping up the volume and not letting go.

    Meredith has married the man of her dreams - a much older, wealthy man - and after a few years into her marriage, she vanishes into thin air from a grocery store parking lot. What happened? Who’s responsible? These are the questions you’ll be asking yourself over and over again until the big reveal.

    It’s these middle of the road reviews that are the hardest to write. I can seem to go on and on about books that I loved or disliked, but to say this was “good” isn’t really going to cut it. Don’t get me wrong - this is a strong thriller in its own right, but for a thriller junkie like me, it left a little something lacking in the twistyness aspect and the conclusion held a few loose ends.

    I encourage readers to try this one out for themselves to see what they think!

    A huge thank you to Thomas & Mercer for my advance copy.

    I have heard the best things about Minka Kent from other book lovers, so I was beyond excited to read my first book by her,

    ! It was a fast-paced thriller that was hard to put down! Kent is an incredible writer, and I really enjoyed the central characters in this book. This was a buddy read with Kendall and Holly, and we all had different theories about what was really going on throughout the book—and none of us were correct!

    ! It was a fast-paced thriller that was hard to put down! Kent is an incredible writer, and I really enjoyed the central characters in this book. This was a buddy read with Kendall and Holly, and we all had different theories about what was really going on throughout the book—and none of us were correct!

    Meredith Price has a gorgeous, rich husband, two high maintenance step kids, and a dream home in the mountains. But what she doesn’t have are friends. Meredith comes from a different world than the other wives—she’s nearly a decade younger, didn’t come from money, and not accustomed to the social scene they circulate in. But Meredith loves her husband, and she is so grateful for how kind and attentive he is.

    Her car is found outside the grocery store with her keys, purse, and cell phone still inside and the door wide open. Where is Meredith? As the police begin an intensive search, the gossip mills start to churn. Why would a women who is happy in her life disappear? Was she taken? Did she run? Or is something more sinister going on?

    When the police don’t find anything after 24 hours, Greer knows that all is not as it seems with her sister’s disappearance. Why haven’t the police been interviewing the neighbors and friends of Meredith? Why does her husband seem so calm? As Greer begins to look deeper into her sister’s life, she realizes that Meredith kept many secrets. And one of them may be the key to finding her…

    The book is told from two points of view—Meredith’s story about meeting her husband Andrew, their marriage, and ultimately up to the day of her disappearance, and Greer’s story starting the day Meredith disappears. I always find this works well, because we got a lot of Greer in the past through Meredith’s story, and learned more about what Meredith may have shared or not shared through Greer.

    Greer is definitely the breakout star of this book! She was sassy and loving—tough on the outside but tender underneath. She is also an incredibly awesome big sister. I think we would all be glad to have a big sister like her! Hearing about how she felt more like a mother to Meredith than their own mother was so touching. Greer and Meredith have an incredible bond that was apparent even through the difficult times.

    And there were some other characters that were fun additions! The boyishly-handsome detective, Ronan, the mysterious, sarcastic ex to Greer, Harris, the thin and retouched ex-wife, Erica, the bratty step kids, Isabeau and Calder (those names!!!), and the reserved best friend, Allison. Many of these characters were a bit clichéd, such as the ex- and the step kids, but I think that is because it was told from Meredith’s perspective. She feels like an outsider still in this pampered world, so I don’t know that she was able to see the depth to those individuals who shunned her.

    I mentioned earlier that the big twist really did get me! I do wish that there had been a bit more substance to the fallout of the twist at the end. Things were tied up all neat-and-tidy, which I think will appeal to some readers. I like a bit of mess with my thrillers, and that feeling of “what just happened??”

    I am looking forward to reading more from Minka Kent!
