The hype and buzz for this book is so real! I was so excited to get an early chance to read this. Wendy Walker is one of my favorite authors!
Thank you St Martin’s Press for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.
Synopsis: One night, Molly Clarke walked away from her life.
She doesn’t want to be found.
Or at least, that’s the story.
The car abandoned miles from home.
The note found at a nearby hotel.
The shattered family that couldn’t be put back together.
They called it a “walk away.”
It happens all the time.
Women disappear, desperate to leave their lives behind and start over.
But is that what really happened to Molly Clarke?
In true Wendy fashion – she’s done it again! This is one of my favorite mysteries this year! This is a perfect example of a thrilling tale that will keep you guessing but proving to surprise you every step of the way. It took my breath away! HIGHLY recommend!
If you’ve been following my posts for awhile, you will know that I’ve enjoyed books by Wendy Walker in the past (ie. Emma in the Night). Once I saw this book was going to be realeased, I had to jump on it!
Thank you St Martin’s Press for sending me a copy in exchange for my honest review.
Laura has been through a lot in her lifetime. She has just recently broken up with a boyfriend and moved in with her sister Rosie. To get back into the game, she decides to go on a date with a guy she met online, borrow her sister’s dress and car, and head out on the town to make an impression and move on from the past. 4 am comes around, and Laura is no where to be found. Rosie is starting to freak out and enlists the help of her husband and a long time family friend. What happend to Laura? Is she safe? Better yet, did Laura do something that she’s going to regret? The past is coming back to haunt her, and it’s not looking good…
The book was a little slow to start, but the last 30% of it made my head spin in all different ways. WOW. What a wild ride this book was! I went into it completely blind (meaning I did not read any synopsis of the book beforehand) and I really loved doing that. I really enjoyed the fact that you were reading about the entire night as it was happening (in Laura’s point of view) and also reading it after the fact (in Rosie’s point of view as she was trying to find out what happened to her sister) all at the same time. There are multiple twists in the end that I didn’t see coming. I couldn’t quite wrap my head around what was happening as I was reading it. One reveal lead to another, and my husband caught me screaming out loud in amazement. That, my friends, is when you know it’s a fun book to read.
I’ve heard so many wonderful things about this book – I am happy to finally get around to reading it! I got to participate in an online buddy read with @readwithjamie on instagram with this book. I highly recommend doing online buddy reads if you aren’t plugged into a real life book club like myself. I had a blast sharing with her!
Cass and Emma are sisters who have been missing for 3 years with not a trace left. All of the sudden, Cass shows up at her mother’s front porch begging for help to find Emma. She starts to share the story of what happened to Cass and Emma as they ran away from home, all the while painting the picture of what it was like to grow up in their home with one crazy mother (and I mean crazy). You start to feel for Cass as she shares the dramatic tale of their years on a deserted island, but soon realize something’s fishy about her story. Is she telling the truth about their disappearance?
Oh my goodness, this book had me on the edge of my seat! You think you can trust these characters…but you just wait! My mouth was wide open the entire time reading this. I can’t believe I was so fooled! This was the perfect suspenseful thriller that I needed to read. Put this on your list right away! It’s crazy good.
