Review: Widow Falls by Kiersten Modglin


Release date: September 21, 2021

Genre: Mystery/Thriller


The last girl went missing…
Someone doesn’t want her to be found.

When Sloane takes a job at the infamous whitewater rafting camp, Widow Falls, she quickly learns that the camp has a reputation for more than just summer fun.

People go missing at Widow Falls.

The guide she’s replacing was just one of many. As Sloane settles into her new home—a one-room apartment she’ll be sharing with the five other guides—she can’t help asking questions and digging into the disappearances she’s heard about. Her new roommates tell her stories of dark legends and dangerous folklore surrounding the secluded camp but assure her there’s nothing to worry about. It’s all just superstition.

When Sloane stumbles upon a clue and a secret message hidden beneath the floorboards of their loft, she begins to realize there may be more to the myths than she’s been told.

The message gets her attention: Don’t trust anyone at Widow Falls.

As she follows clues to better understand the missing guide she replaced, Sloane can’t help noticing the similarities between the two of them.

What happened to the other girl?
Why won’t the others help her search?
Are they all in danger?

Whatever’s happening at Widow Falls, it’s clear someone doesn’t want her digging into it. As the seams of her reality are torn apart, making her question everything she sees, feels, and believes, Sloane will have to uncover the truth about the camp—and its occupants—before someone else goes missing.

Because this time…it might be her.


Ok WOW I could’ve never guessed where this one was going!! That’s one of my favorite things about KMod, not only does she publish like ten books a year each and every single one of them feels fresh and unique. I feel like that’s so rare from a thriller author but she manages to impress me with each new release.

This one had a great atmosphere, a secluded campground where not only is Sloane the new girl at her job, she knows nothing about the people she’s working AND living with and I loved that sense of not knowing who to trust. While I was reading I felt a little twitchy and jumpy myself so there’s definitely a strong sense of dread as you read. Definitely another page turner and like I said earlier, I had no idea how this would end and honestly that’s the best part of a good thriller for me.

Overall rating: 4/5

Thanks to the author for my review copy.
