Summary
"The highly anticipated new thriller in Caroline Kepnes's hit You series, now a blockbuster Netflix show . . . Joe Goldberg is back. And he's going to start a family--even if it kills him. Joe Goldberg is done with cities, done with the muck and the posers, done with Love. Now, he's saying hello to nature, to simple pleasures on a cozy island in the Pacific Northwest. For the first time in a long time, he can just breathe. He gets a job at the local library--he does know a thing or two about books--and that's where he meets her: Mary Kay DiMarco. Librarian. Joe won't meddle, he will not obsess. He'll win her the old fashioned way . . . by providing a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand. Over time, they'll both heal their wounds and begin their happily ever after in this sleepy town. The trouble is . . . Mary Kaye already has a life. She's a mother. She's a friend. She's . . . busy. True love can only triumph if both people are willing to make room for the real thing. Joe cleared his decks. He's ready. And hopefully, with his encouragement and undying support, Mary Kaye will do the right thing and make room for him"--

Booklist Review: "It's been five years since readers slipped into the dark and twisted psyche of Joe Goldberg, last seen in Los Angeles in Kepnes' Hidden Bodies (2016). Circumstances have forced Joe out of the City of Angels, and he's relocated to the idyllic Pacific Northwest town of Bainbridge to start over. For Joe this means finding a new focus for his obsession, and he's settled his attentions on Mary Kay DiMarco, the flirtatious manager at the library where Joe has been volunteering. Joe turns on the charm and slips into Mary Kay's life, but his hopes of winning her over are turned upside down when he discovers a big secret she's been keeping from him. Kepnes' series continues to be a sly, subversive exploration of what people choose to reveal and what they hide in their relationships, and just how difficult it is to truly know another person. That Kepnes manages to limn such heady subjects in such a compulsively readable way while serving up twists aplenty is the reason the series still feels fresh three books in. With the Netflix show, You, based on Joe's exploits and set to return for a third season, there's never been a better time to get acquainted with Kepnes' dangerously appealing leading man."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In the lurid third installment of the You series (after Providence), serial killer Joe Goldberg is up to his usual pathological tricks. After taking a $4 million payoff from his ex's family, the Quinns, to stay away from his son, Joe moved to Bainbridge Island, Wash., where he's found true love with librarian Mary Kay DiMarco. Her bestie, Melanda, described by Joe as sporting a "Body by Costco," tries to keep them apart. So does Mary Kay's CrossFit junkie friend from high school, and a goon hired by the Quinns to keep Joe under control. Joe does his best to be "Mr. Fucking Good Guy" while stalking Mary Kay, and congratulates himself for not giving in to homicidal rage after discovering she's married. As the connection between Joe and Mary Kay deepens, complications arise, prompting him to kidnap Melanda. While some of the plot twists feel familiar, as does Joe's unchanging and damaged personality, there's a strange delight in watching Joe battle "the toxic cycle of masculinity" by committing heinous crimes in the name of love, all while congratulating himself on his kindness, patience, and woke-ness, and blaming everyone else for his problems ("Just once I'd like to fall for someone who isn't handicapped by narcissism, but it's too late"). Series fans will eat this up. Agent: Claudia Ballard, WME. (Apr.)"
