I'm really loving the girl on the train, I really like the suspense and the diary set up. Can you recommend something else I would enjoy please.

Must be in the first person and easy to read.

I don't generally read, but I picked this one up in sainsburys and really enjoyed it.

Disclaimer is a brilliant book. By Renee Knight. I have been lending to everyone

You may like Apple Tree Yard. Just finished Julie Myersons The Stopped Heart. Pretty grim though.

If you like that kind of thing try Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson

Before I Go To Sleep by S J Watson
Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes

Disclaimer and gone girl both similar in style to girl on a train, I'd say. Really enjoyed all of them.

Sarah Hilary, Marnie Rome books. There are three, all excellent and not your typical crime novel. The third one had just come out which I haven't read yet but loved the first two.

Sabine Durrant, Under Your Skin and Remember Me This Way. Really gripping thrillers, very well written and with twists I did not see coming.

Alex Marwood, The Wicked Girls, The Killer Next Door and The Darkest Secret. The last one is superb, with shades of McCann, but all three are excellent.

Also recommend Elizabeth Haynes - Into the Darkest Corner is great and the subsequent Louisa Smith series are really good reads.

Gillespie and I by Jane Harris is written in a similar vein and had me hooked from start to finish.,

Hi, immediately after Girl on the Train I read "I let you go" by Clare Mackintosh. Written in first person, sometimes hard and sad to read but a fantastic (never saw that one coming) twist!!!! Highly recommend x

Sarah Hilary's first DI Marnie Rome (Someone Else's Skin) book is currently free on the kindle!

The Kind Worth Killing is a v good thriller with some good twists

kateandme Tue 31-May-16 21:53:41

not the same as such but Jodi picoult for similar emotive yet gripping reads

GreenShadow Wed 01-Jun-16 16:19:59

Missing Rose by Linda Newbery is another good read.

It's the first book that my book group has unanimously agreed to be enjoyable

Angela Marsons' Kim Stone series (4 books) and all the ones ABC recommended above, loved them all.

I just finished The Ice Twins. It was very good.

TolpuddleFarterOATB Sun 05-Jun-16 18:15:35

I Saw A Man by Owen Shears is very good

FreddoBaggyMac Tue 07-Jun-16 13:03:38

Behind closed doors by B A Paris is a similar read to The Girl on the Train.

obrigada Tue 14-Jun-16 11:37:32

I second Marmadukes recommendation for "I let you go", there is a twist in the middle that you just don't see coming!

Just finished it and despite it being a page turner and reading it in one sitting, I hate it.

The characterisation is very poor. I saw a discussion site where posters were saying Rachel/Megan and even Rachel/Megan/Anna might as well be one character; frankly Cathy was the only individual character. Scott/Tom are basically 1 character too the "Handsome Controlling Husband".

It’s basically a complete waste of time. It’s a shallow, entirely plot driven, draw you in book with no substance.
