Are You Sleeping by Kathleen Barber

Into the Wild

Read Are You Sleeping Online Free - Serial meets Ruth Ware’s In A Dark, Dark Wood in this inventive and twisty psychological thriller about a mega-hit podcast that reopens a murder case—and threatens to unravel the carefully constructed life of the victim’s daughter.

The only thing more dangerous than a lie...is the truth.

Josie Buhrman has spent the last ten years trying to escape her family’s reputation and with good reason. After her father's murder thirteen years prior, her mother ran away to join a cult and her twin sister Lanie, once Josie’s closest friend and confidant, betrayed her in an unimaginable way. Now, Josie has finally put down roots in New York, settling into domestic life with her partner Caleb, and that’s where she intends to stay. The only problem is that she has lied to Caleb about every detail of her past—starting with her last name.

When investigative reporter Poppy Parnell sets off a media firestorm with a mega-hit podcast that reopens the long-closed case of Josie’s father’s murder, Josie’s world begins to unravel. Meanwhile, the unexpected death of Josie’s long-absent mother forces her to return to her Midwestern hometown where she must confront the demons from her past—and the lies on which she has staked her future.

3.5 stars Are You Sleeping is a predictable psychological thriller. In spite of this, it’s very readable...so much so that I found that I HAD to keep reading, even though I knew how things were going to play out. 10 years ago, Josie Borden nee Buhrman fled her small Illinois hometown to start a ne...

Perception. And how exactly do we arrive at our view of the world and all of its clingy entanglements? Is it purely ours to hold within or has it been tainted and smeared with the handprints of others? Kathleen Barber presents her story of Are You Sleeping through the lense of social media. Poppy Pa...

Reconsidered: The Chuck Buhrman Murder was splashed in bold red letters across a fuzzy black-and-white picture of my father. It was the headshot he had used for work, the one where he looked less like an actual college professor and more like a caricature of one, with his tweed jacket, crooked ey...

Josie hasn't talked to her mom or twin sister in over a decade. She thought she left all of that baggage in the past, but blogger/journalist Poppy Parne...

Talk about an addicting, compulsively-readable book. The author truly kept me needing to know what was going to happen next, with a captivating format that includes the transcripts, commentary, and social media of an investigative reporter (a la the Serial aspect of the story), coupled with the f...

There’s an emerging literary trope in which an intelligent, but battled-scarred female protagonist with a tragic past, gets the hell outta dodge, but is inevitably forced back to her hometown to confront her demons. A spurned love interest, bitter ex-bestie, or pissed-off sibling are also general...
