Hairpin Bridge by Taylor Adams | Review

Hairpin Bridge | Taylor Adams | William Morrow| Pub: June 15, 2021 | Pages: 320

Taylor Adams is the author of one of my favorite books, No Exit. So I definitely had very high expectations and he did not disappoint!!

What a wild ride this book was!!

Let’s just say the action never stopped in this book and I was there for it! I initially thought that this was going to be predictable since Lena was going to confront the man that allegedly discovered her sister’s body after committing suicide. But there are so many twists and turns that I was pleasantly surprised by the development of the story.

The only reason this isn’t a 5-star review is because I was missing something. I can’t put my finger on it but I didn’t really like any of the characters. Even Lena, the main character, there was something about her that I wasn’t really sympathetic towards.

I did love however how the story was written. It went back and forth between the characters POV and Lena’s blog and Lena trying to tell her sister’s side of the story. I thought that was a very creative way to tell the story!

I just really like the action pack story and the twists and turns. I think that’s a combination for an amazing thriller! Highly recommend.

Thank you to Joffe Books for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.


Three months ago, Lena Nguyen’s estranged twin sister, Cambry, drove to a remote bridge sixty miles outside of Missoula, Montana, and jumped two hundred feet to her death. At least, that is the official police version.

But Lena isn’t buying it.

Now she’s come to that very bridge, driving her dead twin’s car and armed with a cassette recorder, determined to find out what really happened by interviewing the highway patrolman who allegedly discovered her sister’s body.

Corporal Raymond Raycevic has agreed to meet Lena at the scene. He is sympathetic, forthright, and professional. But his story doesn’t seem to add up. For one thing, he stopped Cambry for speeding a full hour before she supposedly leapt to her death. Then there are the sixteen attempted 911 calls from her cell phone, made in what was unfortunately a dead zone.

But perhaps most troubling of all, the state trooper is referred to by name in Cambry’s final enigmatic text to her sister: Please Forgive Me. I couldn’t live with it. Hopefully you can, Officer Raycevic.

Lena will do anything to uncover the truth. But as her twin’s final hours come into focus, Lena’s search turns into a harrowing, tooth-and-nail fight for her own survival—one that will test everything she thought she knew about her sister and herself...
