Disclosure: I received a complimentary ARC copy of this book in exchange  for an honest review.

Did I enjoy this book: 
Yes. It is a suspenseful novel that kept me intrigued. Twenty-six-year-old Anna Ray is trying to escape her demons at a new job in a new state, but it seems that trouble is following her. A colleague is murdered, and Anna is unwittingly drawn into the police investigation. Anna is forced to face her demons head-on, and once again question who she can trust.


Would I recommend it: Yes, Baggage is a well-written page-turner, and if you enjoy psychological thrillers, this is a book for you!


About the book – from Goodreads: Over the years, terrible things keep happening to Anna Ray on February 17. First, there was the childhood trauma she’s never been able to speak about. Then, to her horror, her husband killed himself on that date.

A year later and a thousand miles away, Anna tries to find solace in the fresh start of a new job in a new place. She takes comfort in her outspoken cousin Jeannie, the confidant and best friend who’s there whenever she needs help. On the day of the dreaded anniversary, Anna and Jeannie hit the town, planning to ease the pain with an alcohol-induced stupor and then sleep.…

When Anna awakes the next morning, she thinks she can put one more February 17 behind her, but fate is about to intervene in the form of two gruesome murders with eerie similarities to her violent past. This time, however, she won’t be an abandoned daughter or a grieving widow. This time, she’ll be a suspect.
