PRAISE FOR PROVIDENCE: Kepnes’s first standalone novel, Providence, was named a best book of the year by Real Simple. The New York Times Book Review wrote, “Caroline Kepnes is cool right this minute.” It was included on “Best of” roundups from Real Simple, The New York Post, and Refinery29 and was a summer reads pick from Jimmy Fallon and the New York Times.
Kepnes was a TELEVISION WRITER for shows like 7th Heaven and The Secret Life of the American Teenager, as well as a POP CULTURE JOURNALIST for Entertainment Weekly and other publications.
“I will read anything Caroline Kepnes writes. She’s one of the smartest, most insightful writers out there with a true gift for crafting flawed, complicated characters that force us to reckon with our own flaws and complications. Joe’s back (and so are all the reasons you love to hate him), but in You Love Me, Caroline delves even deeper. She subverts our idea of who Joe is and who he can be. In so doing, she forces the reader to ask themselves, Can Joe change? Can anyone ever really change?”—Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Sun Is Also a Star
“Caroline Kepnes is that peerless author who makes me laugh and glance over my shoulder on the very same page. Thank the reading gods that Joe Goldberg is back and just as seductive, dangerous, and witty as ever.”—Jessica Knoll, New York Times bestselling author of Luckiest Girl Alive
“I absolutely loved it. It’s completely addictive, razor-sharp writing from Kepnes. Internet creeping at its most darkly humorous. Joe’s back, and this time it’s definitely real love.”—Catherine Steadman, New York Times bestselling author of Something in the Water
“Caroline Kepnes’s original magic trick was getting readers to root for the murderous Joe Goldberg; now, in You Love Me, her mastery deepens in making readers love him. Filled with her signature wit, incisive social commentary, and pathos, this is Kepnes’s best yet.”—Andrea Dunlop, author of We Came Here to Forget
“A strange delight …Series fans will eat this up.”—Publishers Weekly
“Kepnes’s 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…. There’s never been a better time to get acquainted with Kepnes’s dangerously appealing leading man.”—Booklist
“[Caroline] Kepnes’s savage takedowns of pretentious blowhards continue to make Joe a more culturally aware Dexter, or perhaps a more romantic and humorous Hannibal, as he pillories the bad taste of his rivals and victims.”—LitHub
