My Review:

Mary Kubica book

This book starts off with a bang and I had no idea where it was headed. Thankfully, author @marykubica pulls back a bit and fleshes out the diverse array of characters. While I love a page-turner, I also like details and multi-faceted characters, and Kubica gives us both!

She kept me guessing while also sharing a totally engrossing storyline. I loved the multiple points of view narration and alternating timelines and thought it was a perfect way to share this complicated suspense-filled read.

Local Woman Missing
⁣I highly recommend adding this one to your thriller/suspense TBR list! And if you are like me and are having an easier time with audiobooks lately, this one is currently available on Hoopla Digital through your local library’s membership.

I discussed this one over on my Instagram page @genthebookworm if you would like to join in on the conversation!
