The Match (Wilde, #2) by Harlan Coben @HarlanCoben @GrandCentralPub @NetGalley #mystery #fiction #bookreview

Kaceey’s Review:

Curious to know the secrets hidden deep within your family tree? Don’t be so sure…

Book two of The Wilde series. Honestly, I had second-thoughts about picking this one up. Having previously read book one The Boy From the Woods, I considered it just an ok, albeit confusing read.

But come on! It’s Harlan Coben! How could I not read one of his books!?💁🏻‍♀️. (Yes, I’ve read every book he has published). Once again, he’s at the top of his game. Everything missing in the previous book was included here making for an exciting and thrilling read!

Wilde was found abandoned in the woods. No one knows for sure how long he’s been there, surviving on his own. Taken into foster care and equally fortunate, befriended by Hester. Though, no matter what, he always maintains a measure of his loner status.

Wilde decides it’s time to research his past. Maybe find out what actually happened all those years ago. What could have possibly occured that left him alone, scavenging in the woods. Well… all it takes is a DNA test. And one little MATCH!

But nothing can be that simple…right?!

I devoured this book in only a few sittings, and whole-heartedly didn’t want it to end! I’ve now come to love Wilde’s character. But not to be overlooked, the star of this book of course is Hester! She is a no-bull, take no prisoners kind of a gal! Oh, did I mention behind it all, she also has a heart of gold. Love her!❤️

Already looking forward to Harlan Coben’s next release. Will he continue with this series? Return to Myron and Win? Or perhaps it’s time for another stand-alone? Whatever his direction I’m all in and will be the first in line!🙋🏻‍♀️

Thank you to NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing.

  1. I just got approved for this today, Kaceey. I really didn’t enjoy The Boy From the Woods, so glad to hear that this is much better. Like you, I have to read absolutely everything by this author. Great review. ❤📚

  2. Wonderful review Kaceey. I read every book by Coban except the first in this series. II couldn’t get my hands on it, then read a bunch of not very good reviews. Maybe I need to give both of them a read.
