The highly anticipated new thriller in Caroline Kepnes’s hit You series, now a blockbuster Netflix show…

Joe Goldberg is back. And he’s going to start a family – even if it kills him.

Joe Goldberg is done with cities, done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now, he’s saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cozy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe.

He gets a job at the local library – he does know a thing or two about books – and that’s where he meets her: Mary Kaye DiMarco. Librarian. Joe won’t meddle, he will not obsess. He’ll win her the old fashioned way… by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they’ll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town.

The trouble is… Mary Kaye already has a life. She’s a mother. She’s a friend. She’s… busy.

True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. He’s ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kaye will do the right thing and make room for him.


How exciting is it when one of your favorite series has another book coming out?  I knew this one was coming out soon and was so excited to read it, little did I know I would get the chance early! The way this series is written has always intrigued me and made me immersed immediately.

Kepnes has done it again with the third installment of this series. It leads off a bit after the last book and we learn what’s happened since that explosive ending. Joe…. Joe… Joe…. He will NEVER learn and I’m perfectly OK with that. It makes for a great story.

If you are any type of fan of this series I highly recommend continuing. You get al the twists and turns you expect out of this one. Thriller lovers, get on this series!
