EVERYTHING YOU WANT ME TO BE is a Psychological Mystery and Suspense Thriller that touched on so many different aspects of all the characters lives in a small town farming community. We all have different dreams, expectations, desires, and how we deal with grief. I found the story quite sad in spots as MINDY MEJIA definitely knows how to pull you in to the story. I was engaged right from the beginning of the book.
I thought the title of this book was really good, I was able to decipher right away why this title was chosen for this novel. But, cannot actually say why as it might be a little bit of a spoiler. I also like to figure out who the suspects are but at the end I didn’t actually expect what truly transpired.
The story was told in alternating perspectives of Hattie, Peter, and Del who was the local sheriff and also a family friend to the victim’s family. I loved all the characters and was totally wrapped up in each of their lives. I really loved Hattie’s characters for so many different reasons. The storyline was executed very well and was easy to follow along.
It was a fast-paced, quick, and easy read with a satisfying ending. Would recommend!!
Thank you to my Goodreads friends for introducing me to another great read!
