You Love Me

In this third installment of Kepnes’s popular “You” series (following Providence), serial killer and bookseller Joe Goldberg is released and exonerated after serving several months in prison in Los Angeles. Love Quinn gave birth to Joe’s son during his incarceration, and now her family pays Joe $4 million to remove himself from their lives forever. Joe relocates to the small town of Bainbridge Island, WA, a venue inspired by a Debbie Macomber novel. He purchases a home on the water, complete with a soundproof “Whisper Room,” and sets his sights on someone new. Joe’s latest obsession is librarian Mary Kay DiMarco, branch manager of the local library. In typical Goldberg fashion, he orchestrates an elaborate plan to infiltrate Mary Kay’s life and won’t let any obstacles deter him from his goal. Joe learns that even a stalker can be stalked, and finds himself on the unpleasant end of the equation.
VERDICT Fans of the series will want to read this book in one sitting. It’s wickedly full of twists, turns, and a dizzying array of pop culture references and witticisms.
