Ever since I read Lisa’s latest novel “Confessions on the 7:45”, I could not wait to get my hands on her next book!
Thank you Park Row books and Tandem Literary for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: Think twice before you swipe. She met him through a dating app. An intriguing picture on a screen, a date at a downtown bar. What she thought might be just a quick hookup quickly became much more. She fell for him—hard. It happens sometimes, a powerful connection with a perfect stranger takes you by surprise. Could it be love? But then, just as things were getting real, he stood her up. Then he disappeared—profiles deleted, phone disconnected. She was ghosted. Maybe it was her fault. She shared too much, too fast. But isn’t that always what women think—that they’re the ones to blame? Soon she learns there were others. Girls who thought they were in love. Girls who later went missing. She had been looking for a connection, but now she’s looking for answers. Chasing a digital trail into his dark past—and hers—she finds herself on a dangerous hunt. And she’s not sure whether she’s the predator—or the prey.
This is Lisa’s 19th novel (WOOHOO, congrats Lisa!), and she really does have a knack for telling a great chilling mystery! If you like Gone Girl or Girl on the Train type stories, Lisa is the perfect fit for you. This book did not disappoint. The story is dark and twisted and almost to closely to relate! While I wasn’t a huge fan of jumping from past to present in the second half of the book, I really liked how the character turned into an arm-chair detective. I like to think of myself as one of those and could picture myself doing just the same in a mystery such as this. You won’t want to pass up on this book this October!
