The FavorThe Favor by Nora Murphy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Leah and McKenna know one another's lives well. They know the struggles and the secrets most of all. However, Leah and McKenna do not know one another. However, one night McKenna sees something happen at Leah's house, and she knows how it goes because it's her story, too. Not only does she see what's happening, but she decides to take action on Leah's behalf. Y'all, this was a thriller that is also chock full of feels. It's told from three perspectives - Leah, McKenna, and a detective who investigates after things go down - and y'all know how much I love multiple narrators! The advantage of these three narrators is it also lets the reader see the story from all angles, including what's really happening behind close doors. I found the story to be a pageturner because I was invested in what was going to happen to McKenna and Leah as they are each carrying and hiding so much from others. This one is so well told and definitely packs so many thrills. Thanks to NetGalley for the early look at this May 2022 release!
